Your business will only scale as far as your mindset allows.
If you’ve been following me for some time, you’ve likely heard me say that before. I preach it because I see it every single day and have experienced it mannnyyyyy times myself.
New or aspiring entrepreneurs come to me thinking they need the next best strategy and once we start digging deeper, they realize it’s actually healing that they need.
There is some sort of resistance that is preventing them from getting to the next level and that resistance usually stems from inner child wounds. These inner child wounds have been left unhealed and they start making their way back to the surface in adulthood.
Those wounds will prevent you from getting to the next level in your business.
For example, let’s say you grew up being told that people with money are greedy. You learn that money = greed. That is eventually going to prevent you from selling, receiving money, spending money, etc.
It sucks, healing is not fun and it will be a wild ride – but it’s also such a beautiful journey.
You get to discover your inner child again and start rebuilding your relationship with yourself. This is when you fully step into your power and own who you are and what you bring to the table.
This is one of my favorite questions – it’s so telling. Don’t judge your answer, your intuition will let you know what it is right away. Let your pen flow and honor what your highest self is telling you.
The key here is to pinpoint where you are physically feeling this resistance so you can release it. If you feel it in your chest, focus on taking deep breaths until it naturally releases.
Don’t fight it. Allow yourself to feel this. You can’t release emotions without sitting with them first.
The more you fight, the more it persists.
Acknowledge, feel, release.
Give yourself the space to fully lean into this. Think back to yourself when you were 5 years old.
What did you look like? What was your personality? How has that personality changed as you’ve gotten older?
What would your 5-year-old self tell you right now?
Give yourself permission to unleash here if you need it.
Now that you know what your inner child would tell you, what would your inner parent tell your 5-year-old self?
This question is super powerful if you face the mirror and answer this question out loud.
Now that you’ve done the deep connecting, let your highest self guide you to the answer.
Sit in silence with it if you need it and trust the answer will come to the surface.
Now that you know the root cause, you can work on releasing it whenever you feel the resistance come over you.
