Corporations are, by their very nature, masculine!
To be successful in corporate, you have to be super focused on the results you are working towards and it is all about making decisions, taking action, making profit – doing, doing, doing!
Corporations are also very unforgiving!
Just when you breathe a sign of relief that you have made budget for the year, you have to start all over again. The goal posts are constantly moved and so you soothe your soul with “when I get my work up to date, then I will have the time to sort my personal life out” until it dawns on you that your work is never up to date and that can build into resentment or martyrdom.
With all that action taking, its pretty obvious that our masculine sides get well developed in our corporate jobs and is what feels natural to us. If you are a clever female executive, you find ways to nurture your feminine side. But that is another story…
Men naturally do short sprints or bursts of action whereas women naturally do a marathon. In corporate, women often push themselves to match the sprint action of men, yet because they are designed for marathons, they sprint throughout the marathon and get burned out.
In most corporations, personal freedom and expression is very low on the agenda and women often leave their successful corporate jobs to pursue their purpose and their passion in their own business.
But, here is the problem: when women start their own business, they often go about things with their masculine corporate mindset (expressed in action) so create a huge amount of busy-ness, often without the corresponding results.
Your business is a direct reflection of you, which means simply that you ARE the company, the brand and the message and putting your whole self out there on show for the world to see is terrifying to say the least.
A few years in, when you have realized that busy is boring and doesn’t yield results, you stop caring so much about what others think about you and get more interested in getting better results in an easier way. Work smarter, not harder so to speak.
That is when things really get interesting because the thing that is going to work the best, is to get into reality and let go of trying to control the outcome. To do this, you have to surrender your mind to your heart and allow your passion and your purpose to guide you!
And that is when you allow your heart to open and you finally hear its voice clearly – your intuition!
To be open to receiving your inner guidance, you must allow yourself to BE.
The secret to success for all entrepreneurs is BALANCE! and you must find the balance in yourself before you will find balance in your business (and that means the time, lifestyle and financial freedom you desire)
Allow your guidance to come through and receive it in the feminine, internalize your guidance and then take inspired guidance in the masculine. That, and surrender the “how” to The Universe.
Remember that every successful entrepreneur was once where you are now!
The confusion; the procrastination; the self-doubt and all the what ifs just energize and perpetuate the struggle.
It takes getting into reality that things aren’t going to change, unless you do. In reality, we create struggle as a distraction from our fears.
Those that make it: draw a line in the sand and say NO MORE!
It is then, and only then that their desire become larger than their fears and they go after it with everything they have got.
Because they know that if they don’t face what is holding them back and clear it, success will remain a dream, just out of reach.
Many of us do a spiritual bypass where we use every manifestation tool, treatment, meditation within grasp, yet find that despite being hugely busy, we aren´t getting the results that we truly desire. Deep down we know something is blocking us and we have tried everything we can think of to clear it. The blocks generally sit in our blind spots and are filled with our fears.
I understand how our fears hold us back, because mine do too! We never stop learning and growing and as we breakthrough every glass ceiling, our awareness grows and we get to a new level of possibilities and again, any resistance you have to your new desire, will come up to be attended to.
I struggled for some years before I reached my limit and did the inner work I had been avoiding and I can promise you – it is never as bad as we fear. It is the most liberating work I have done on myself and as I healed, I became lighter and lighter – physically, emotionally, mentally and spiritually.
I did it and so can you!
You already have all the potential you will ever need within you! Tap into your Mojo, get focused and just do it!
