my contribution was
mindset and productivity
My question to you today is: Are you in a place you can bloom or are you wilting?
About 10 years ago I partnered with a marketing company to present seminars and coaching for certain niche markets. The format of our events was half marketing information and half mindset and productivity. This new business took off fast because there were so many people who wanted this combination of skills to improve their results.
The challenge came when my partner began to openly discount ALL mindset information, which was my contribution to the meetings. He sincerely in his heart did not understand it, thought it was useless information, and was not shy about mocking it when asked about mindset. My partner’s projected dislike of the topic I taught (and felt passionate about), affected many of the members in the group. For those who weren’t inclined to value mindset, my partner’s dislike of right brain thinking reinforced their old beliefs that only left brain thinking was valuable.
I share this with you because although our group was successful for a while, the mental divide between partners eventually became obvious. I chose to leave that business knowing it was unhealthy for me to allow myself to be in a place where my talents and experience were not appreciated. It was a tough call to let go of a gig that I enjoyed and also brought a huge paycheck, but it would have been emotionally detrimental to stay.
I have learned to pay close attention to the mental energy of the people I work with. If I realize that I am not in alignment with a group or leader, I now give myself permission to move on to find people and places that are in alignment and appreciate what I bring to the world. I have learned that I cannot change anyone but myself. I do not have to judge anyone or prove someone wrong, but I do have to honor myself. Just like the famous Kenny Rogers song: “Know when to hold them and know when to fold them!”
Don’t stay where
you don’t fit
Whenever you are out of aliment with your true self, you won’t be truly at peace or happy. And quite frankly, you can’t ever be a great manifestor when you are unhappy. I personally believe that if you continue to stay in places where you don’t fit, you will always regret spending your life there. It’s better to accept when it’s time to move on and find a place where you’re not the round peg trying to shove yourself into a square hole—it never works. It’s unnatural. Instead, find your true calling and talents and go in that direction. Feel yourself beginning to come alive and bloom again!
Sending you love and light
