Yesterday I was talking to a colleague about people who are successful but not enjoying their success. For everyone out there who is hustling to make the money, believe it or not, it doesn’t always lead to happiness. Yeah, nod your head and say “Amen, sister, that’s right!”, but take a moment to feel into this.
**Successful and not enjoying the success.**
Do you know what happens when everything externally says you should have it all together, but inside you’re not?
It stinks. You feel off purpose and empty. But because the money is coming in and all looks peachy-keen on the outside, you can easily stay there and hide. You’re standing there with golden handcuffs on, not sure what to do.[images style=”0″ image=”http%3A%2F%2Ftalentandgenius.com%2Fwp-content%2Fuploads%2Fgolden-handcuffs.jpg” custom_width=”Y” width=”500″ custom_width_val=”500″ align=”center” top_margin=”0″ full_width=”Y”]
Last year, I dismantled a high level coaching program that was a 6 figure revenue stream for my business. But… it was my version of the golden handcuffs. I loved my clients, they got results, but there was something missing from it and I knew it had to end. I could have continued re-enrolling people and bringing in new clients, but until I got my head around my own purpose for what I wanted this group to be, I just couldn’t run it anymore.
Yes, it was scary to dismantle this.
Yes, when I told people what I did they looked at me like I was half-baked.
I told myself the answer would reveal itself to me when it was ready… when I WAS READY.
At times I felt a bit panicked and impatient… “Ummm, hello God? It’s been a few months now, I kinda thought we’d have resolution in a few days… I’m getting a little worried!”
The time is NOW. Things are READY.
My Golden Handcuffs are off. I have the clear vision of my intensive work with leaders and impact entrepreneurs. The habits and behaviors I had that attracted in non-ideal clients have been replaced with habits and behaviors to bring in my ideal clients- the visionaries, the change agents, the leaders feeling the need to know who they really are and what’s their unique genius…
OK let’s just let this sink in… golden handcuffs… feeling trapped… breaking free. Can you relate? What comfort is holding you prisoner?
