The Power of DECISION

The Power of DECISION

 

Mark here with a simple STRATEGY that will make a world of difference in your BUSINESS.

The “empowerment” industry is an 11 billion dollar industry, and there’s no reason why you shouldn’t be able to carve out a chunk of it and live an amazing life… while helping a lot of people.

But most of you aren’t doing that.

You know why?

Because the people who are called to this industry have been doing the work and love it!

They know when they need to skill up and get help, and they’ve been doing that for years.

The problem is they aren’t living what they teach!

They’re not walking their talk.

And look, if that’s you, don’t worry. We were doing that too, at one point.

It’s part of the process of learning who you are and what you’re good at.

But here’s the thing; there comes a time when you have to get real and teach what you know.

It’s a matter of integrity, and the time is now.

Part of that is teaching what you need to learn. Now. that doesn’t mean pretending to be something you’re not.

It means being who you really are. This causes you to start thinking like a visionary, and that’s a beautiful thing.

But there’s a downside here, too.

As your thinking expands, you create problems with your niche.

So how do you decide on where to focus?

It’s simple.

You make a decision.

There’s enormous power in that.

The Latin root of the word “decision” means to “cut off.” You eliminate Plan B, meaning you cut the crap, cut off your escape routes, and cut all the other BS.

You stop believing the stories of lack… you stop telling yourself about how hard it is, and you stop telling yourself how you can’t do it.

Because here’s the deal: Any decision is better than no decision. So commit to making a decision on who you’re meant to serve.

Yes, it will make you uncomfortable.

Yes your brain is going to fight you.

Yes, your stomach may feel like it’s on a rollercoaster as your body tries to get you to do what’s comfortable and safe.

Do it anyway.

In fact, do it TODAY.

Close the door, clear your space, and turn off your ringers.

Maybe even pour yourself a glass of wine and light a candle.

Take a deep breath, and then get to WORK!

And prove it to the Tribe by telling us,

  1. My ‘decision’ is to determine what I need to ‘cut off’ in 2017 so I can tend to the core issues of my business – no more spinning and putting my hand into dozens of tasks, etc.
    DECISION. CERTAINTY.

  2. Hi Shannon and Mark! My decision is to go ahead and jump in teaching. I can do client consulting and like it, but it is strangely unfulfilling in comparison to sharing what I have been spiritually taught. Plus, as an artist, I need to scream, holler, and integrate skits and poetry into my speeches.
    So, I will be utilizing soundcloud, yt, and a few lightworker sites for videos which will be the content I need to launch an online school by summer. Thanks for believing in us!

  3. Hey Mark and Shannon, I love this particular question because it is directed to the higher self that is suffocating under “no decision” “what if” “How” self, when we should all be focused on the “WHY”. I myself tend to loose sight of it when I am indecisive and focusing on the “How to” when I should just make a decision so my “WHY” can breath! The one decision that I can make to follow my calling is to….be more structured. I’ve decided on the “Perfect Day Formula” (book), where I have a schedule and STICK to it. I have great skills but I burn out. I need the morning routine the scheduled business and to quit at a designated time. I’m learning that the billionaires have a strict schedule so they have less “trivial” decisions to make, so that’s what I’ve decided to do.

    1. Brilliant Jo Anna! Love that. Structure is so crucial and to get that skill dialed in as early as possible is the KEY xoxo Way to go. PS and when you fall off the schedule, just get right back on, no wrong making haha

    2. Jo Anna, so glad the question brought this up for you. So powerful. You got it dialed in. The WHY is what we can’t lose sight of. And yes, structure is king. And a team of support which I know you’re continuing to build. Big hugs.

  4. Yes! 2 things I love here…
    1. Teach what you know: If you don’t KNOW, it’s either still a theory/great idea, or someone else’s expertise. I always say, “If you want credibility, just be credible. It’s not any more complicated than that.” And what you KNOW, is the medicine the world needs.
    2. Making a decision: I agree, “A” decision is always better than no decision. NOT deciding is still a decision… by default… it’s not proactive but reactive. (hence-resistance, procrastination, denial, etc.)… Taking THAT same street is guaranteed the same result- 100% guaranteed (definition of insanity. Taking a different street, though scary because it’s untested, unproven, and not yet experienced, actually increases the odds of improving and moving in the right direction. Like you said, even if not the right choice, you are eliminating it (like Edison did thousands of times before inventing the lightbulb) and getting closer to the bullseye. Even a 1° course change creates a huge shift in trajectory.

    ALL of this helped me in finally hitting my Niche bullseye. (Thank you, Mark & Shannon!) Because even though it took me over a year, I still made the decision to do SOMETHING with what I knew, and got clients AND eventual clarity. The PROCESS is equally valuable as the direction and destination. I wouldn’t trade what I have learned from you all, for anything. THANK YOU!! xoxo

    1. Brilliantly said Wendi, you’ve got this, you’re on the road to Rock Star, will we get to see you at the Nov Big Impact Live, hope so! Big hugs coming your way

    2. Aww thank you so much Wendi. You’re doing awesome. We love you! That’s right, no matter how long it takes, those course corrections and determination and key decisions are powerful. Feel free to share any of your comment here on the FB page for the Tribe to see. Very well said! xoxo

  5. I’ve just made a decision to join a wonderful company with an excellent product, and to run my organization in a new way, different from my previous approach to direct marketing. Woot! I am determined that my old stories of lack and limitation shall not hold me back this time. I fly!

    1. Awesome Quadira, we can’t wait to meet you at Big Impact Live in person, you’re doing great. Now let’s get you monetizing, woo hoo!

    2. Yay Quadira, let’s take you to the next level. Never let any old stories hold you back, its time for a new chapter. Woot woot!
