Yes, I just bought these shoes. I used to have these shoes up until a few weeks ago. My husband bought me these exact same shoes for my birthday three years ago. It was love at first sight and I proceeded to wear them everywhere and to everything. I wore them so much that the soft leather had worn off around the toe area but I didn’t care. They felt amazing and looked great with everything. They were my go-to shoes. But calamity ensued a few weeks ago, when I accidentally brushed my foot against a door and the medallion popped off on the left shoe.
Immediate sadness commenced.
I was like, what do I do now? My favorite shoes are gone. I mean, I can’t walk around wearing these shoes when one had the medallion and the other doesn’t. I briefly thought I should just order another pair. But I hesitated. Because I had just signed up and paid for business coaching.
Yes, I am being coached right now for my business. It’s a group of women who are focusing on up-leveling their business in 2019. Cuz I got dreams and goals for my business, too! And personally, I work really well with a coach because it keeps me accountable for putting the work in to reach my goals.
So, I had to pay for this coaching and it was not cheap! But the way I see it, my business, my dreams and the goals that I have for us (my family) are worth it. My coach is amazing and she charges her worth. So I didn’t wanna replace my shoes just yet. Because in all honesty, I didn’t need a new pair of shoes. I just wanted them.
Then something interesting happened. On the very first coaching session, my coach challenged the group to make $2,000 as quick as possible. I was like, “Huh?! How can I make $2K just like that?!” But then my coach started showing us ways to make “manifest the money”. For me, I was told to put my eCourses out there more prominently and advertise my tech skills more. Also, I had a course that I hadn’t finished yet and my coach was just like, “Finish it and put it out for sale tomorrow.” I was like, “No way!” I hemmed and hawed about being able to do it but guess what…. I did it. And not only did I complete my course, I won the challenge by making $2K in one week.
How did I make $2,000 in 7 days, you ask…
An old client contacted me about redesigning her blog and paid me $300.
I created a blog for a new client for $700
I contacted a client that owed me money for work done the previous year. They paid me $1,000.
In 7 days, I had achieved that goal I didn’t think I could do. Boom! The power of coaching. But more importantly, the power of putting yourself out there and taking ACTION.
But how about you? What ways can YOU manifest $2,000 or even $200 in 7 days to pay for the things you want?
- Drive for Uber or Lyft
- Get a temporary part-time job (at Starbucks, etc.)
- Work extra hours or shifts at your current job.
- Sell stuff you don’t want on eBay, Poshmark or CraigsList
- Advertise your skills on Fiverr
- Ask for the money that people owe you.
And that’s just off the top of my head. But there is money out there for you. Just go get it!
So, I celebrated my win with my coach she was like, “Great! Now reward yourself!” She asked what I wanted to buy and immediately said I would buy a new pair of my beloved Tory Burch ballet flats.
There you have it. I bought these shoes because I love them so much. But I also bought them as a reward to myself for doing what I thought I couldn’t do. So every time I look lovingly down at my feet when I am wearing these shoes, I will remember that you can challenge yourself to do things that you think you can’t.
If you are trying to start a blog or make money blogging, why not let me help you? As I learned this past week, you can do so much more that you think you can. You can have a blogging business. You CAN do it. We find money for a lot of stuff that we want. Why not invest in yourself, your hopes and dreams.
