When your life is in alignment with who you are and what you want, it feels much like the sensation you have when your spine is aligned. As your life synchronizes with what you want, energy flows toward those desires, opportunities open up and life and work require less effort. Mental and emotional alignment is just as efficient as physical alignment.
During a recent coaching session, a client (she's an enterpreneur, coach and author) expressed that she had a case of the "blahs" professionally and wasn't sure why. After digging beneath the surface, she discovered her desire to shift most of her focus to the book she's writing. She also wanted enough income from her coaching practice to support herself and her writing. In order to support this desire, she decided to coach only two days per week and rescheduled her clients accordingly.
Once she refocused her time and energy in a way that was aligned with what she wanted, other unexpected opportunities dropped in her lap. For example, she was asked to submit an article to an e-newsletter with one million subscribers. Overnight, the hits on her website multiplied many times over, she had new coaching clients and several potential clients in the wings. These clients were the ones she needed to fulfill her second desire: coaching income that supports her writing.
Let's review the steps this client took.
Alignment requires trust, being aware of self-sabotage, and giving yourself permission to have what you want. When unexpected opportunities present themselves, use your intuition or "gut" feeling to determine whether they're in line with your vision or goal.
Allow your entrepreneurship to be easier. Get clear about what you want, and move your business into alignment with it. You'll be working less and reaping more. Who doesn't want that?
