How do you put yourself on the path to being great in your business and in life? Cathy shares a Q&A about topics like the 2 parts of business that will get you to your first million, what it means to be in courageous leadership, how to maintain your energy, how to show up when you’re resistant to being visible, how to get clarity on what you’re supposed to offer to the world, how to navigate a partner who is stressed about money, and how to change your focus so that life becomes freaking amazing.
You don’t have to be great to start, but you have to start to wind up being great. Give yourself a giant permission slip to be mediocre at first. Let’s just enjoy that process. Give yourself the grace to play, be messy, try things and iterate.
When they zig, you zag. You get to do it your way. That’s what’s going to make you stand out in business.
Put something on your calendar that makes you scared, that makes your heart beat a little faster. It challenges you and makes you step into your growth. That’s the thing your soul wants more than anything.
Successful people take radical responsibility. We don’t blame other people for things because that is such a loser’s bet. When you take radical responsibility, you can see the gift and lesson in everything.
Our greatest act of free will is choosing to focus our own mind in a better way. When you change your focus and see the clues that the universe is net positive, you see a completely different life staring back at you. You start to feel more in the flow, you get more ideas, you become more generous. And life starts to be freaking amazing.
It doesn’t matter what people are saying about you. It’s none of your business. The only thing you do is go into the world to do the thing you know you’re supposed to do. Be available for the people who are willing to see you as you are. Go out there, be yourself, and let it go.
You’re not actually in it for the result. You’re in it for the satisfaction you get from stretching yourself. The greatest feeling is not having an achievement. It’s who you become in creating that achievement in your life. Courage itself is the reward.
Open up to the unknown. All the mystical, beautiful, synchronistic surprises are all because you step into the unknown.
