Leading up to my birthday last year, I decided to set an intention of what the upcoming year would entail for me- what would “version 33” of Jamie look like? Simply put, I was eager for growth. Growth inside and outside, stepping out of my comfort zone and putting the time in to make me the best version of myself possible. And boy did I succeed! I made inner work a top priority, I took the leap of faith, established my coaching, training OD services business, Intentional Perspective, Inc, and have continued to take baby steps towards self-actualization and making my mark in this world. The Good Vibe Coaching Academy program brought my coaching to the next level and gave me a whole new perspective and approach to my coaching practice, led by my absolutely amazing and inspiring rock star mentors Jeannette Maw and Lisa Hayes. I wrote my first children’s book, How to Wish Upon A Star (it will be published soon!), met one of the biggest influences in life, Jack Canfield, joined his team, joined a mastermind,
volunteered more this year than the previous 33 years combined, and have surrounded myself with love, light and the most successful, supportive and inspiring group of small business owners I’ve ever met. I have half a dozen incredible women that I consider both mentors and colleagues and am feeling the best I have in my entire adult life.
A few of the life lessons that I received loud and clear this past year:
- I am enough, I do more than enough, and my gifts are valuable in this world- you too, by the way 😉
- Whatever we circulate out into this world comes back to us magnified
- It’s all about what you believe -good or bad! Try to catch the limiting beliefs you have as they come up and knock those suckers out. They don’t serve you!
- Inner work is more important than physically taking action, but both are necessary
- When they say “it’s all about enjoying the journey” – they really mean it. Don’t wait until you have achieved your goals to start “enjoying” life. Enjoy every day as it is.
- Ask and it is given. Set your intention and believe it is possible. If you believe it, you can achieve it.
- We are each 100% responsible for our lives. Good and bad. And we can make life better this second by changing our thoughts and adopting an intentional perspective 😉
This next year of my life, Jamie v34, which starts today, on my 34th birthday (get it?), my focus is effortless success through being present to serve. My buzz words are focus, commitment and bliss. I’m delighting in the idea of significant business growth, but, like the song below says, it ain’t about the money, money, money…
While we are on the subject, one of my major life lessons this past year is that you can be both – did you know that? Despite how we women were raised, you can be incredibly spiritual, you can be heart-centered and want to be of service to the world and help people grow and be their best version of themselves AND you can charge for your services, enjoy financial abundance and growth. You can be a person of faith AND rejoice in incredible wealth and success. This was a key lesson that I learned this past year and hope to help other women and heart-centered service providers understand the same.
Frankly speaking, the first 33.5 years of my life, I really just constantly wondered how to make the dolla dolla bills. Even as a child I had dollar signs in my eyes. And while I still look forward to increasing my income, having nice things, and pursuing financial freedom, what I now understand is: making money is a byproduct of honoring your life purpose, owning your truth, showing up and consistently offering your gift to the world in whatever way feels good to you.
Do I know how you can make a shit ton of money very quickly? I do. There are literally a million ways to make a million dollars and I can coach you on the mindset that will bring floods of abundance into your life. But the approach I am partial to is through pursing your passion, enjoying the journey and living a life of joy, gratitude and one where your primary focus is how you can make a positive impact on the world.
No judgment if you take a different route, but if you are interested in being abundant in ALL areas of your life- career- finances- relationships – health- -philanthropy – give me call. We will make magic together 😉
