I love to hear the inspiring powerful presence you have. Keep up the amazing work, women need you!

It was a breath of fresh air. I began to realize that the freedom I felt/experienced on the coaching call was something I was created to enjoy and able to have in my life on a daily basis.

Vasavi has a compassionate and caring style of coaching with the perfect level of toughness that allowed me to push myself toward my intended outcomes.

The path to success is a little like your workout routine – if you keep doing the same thing for too long, eventually the results stop rolling in.
Tell me if this pattern sounds familiar: you’ve got your eyes on the prize, you’ve been making fantastic progress towards what you want, and your powers of manifestation are out-of-this-world awesome.
Then one day you wake up, and you realize… you’re not actually moving forward anymore.
Uh-oh. What happens then?
Joe’s the author of this week’s KIR question, and he wants to know:
Vasavi, for the past few months, things have been going fantastic. I have been totally in action, fearless, and committed to moving my life forward. However, I find myself nowadays being in the “dip.” For me, the dip is the low point where now I feel stuck and don’t seem to have the momentum that I was experiencing just a few months ago. I’m starting to feel like I will never experience that rush again, and will stay in the dip. So how do I get out of the dip?
The reality is, there technically is no ‘dip’ – just a deeply-ingrained cycle you’ve probably been struggling with for a while now. Take a second to think about your relationship to success, and to life. What happens when things start to look good for you?
What you (and Joe) might really be struggling with is fear of success.
Watch today’s video to learn why, and exactly what you can do about it.
(Oh, and if you want to learn more about this stuff, I’ve gotta recommend The Big Leap, by Gay Hendricks. It’s a seriously life-changing book.)
Is there a pattern like this at work in your life? Join the conversation in the comments below – I’d love to help wherever I can.
P.S. I’ve created CATAPULT: A Half Day LIVE Workshop. If you wanna learn how I am fearless even in the face of my fears (and trust me, I have a LOT of them), then this is FOR YOU!!! Learn more here: http://catapultwithvasavi.eventbrite.com/
Who’s behind the wheel in your life?
Is it the version of you who’s ready to hit the gas and ride off into the sunset?
Or is it the version who prefers to play it safe, and keep one foot on the brake?
For a lot of us, it tends to be the second one. This means our hearts aren’t running the show – our fear is. And that overwhelming, gut-twisting worry is what keeps so many people from going after what they really want in life.
So how do we break free?
Holly, this week’s asker extraordinaire, has the same question.
“Vasavi, I love watching your videos. Every time I’m stuck on a certain area of my life, you seem to send me just the right video of the week. Ok, so I have a lot of fear. I just want to kill it off. It stops me in every area of my life. I can’t date, I can’t take risks… I really want to start my own business, and every time I even think of doing it, I get overcome by so much fear, and I’m paralyzed. How do I get rid of my fear?”
Let me give you the bad news first: you’re never going to get rid of your fear. Ever.
But the good news is, that’s ok. What’s really important is what happens when something makes you feel afraid.
As author Meg Cabot wrote so beautifully: “Courage is not the absence of fear, but rather the judgment that something else is more important than fear. The brave may not live forever, but the cautious do not live at all.”
Watch today’s video to get clarity on what scares you, and how to take it on and win.
What do your fears say to you? How do you react? How do you wish you could react? Get real with me in the comments below. I always love hearing your thoughts.
See you next week!
You know you’ve got a mission in this life. You want to help people, to inspire, and to leave the world better than the way you found it. But when it comes time to step out from behind the curtain, do you find yourself holding back?
This week’s wonderful question comes from Nancy, who asks: “I see all these people around me playing a big game, and I’m so scared to step out into the spotlight. I always thought I was fearless, but the truth is, I’m terrified of being seen and heard. Any words of wisdom on how to just get out there?”
Heck yes I do.
i used to have some S&M qualities.
may still actually.(Not in a whips and chains kind of way)
more in a self judgment, lack of compassion, and drive to succeed 24/7 kind of way.
let me tell ya right now. there is nothing pleasurable about running on 4 hours of sleep, drinking 5 cups of coffee and
basically feeling like my poor heart is going to jump out of my chest.
I have some good news though.
what i now know to be true is
if you just listen and do what feels good
life doesnt suck anymore.
so what feels good?
hitting the snooze button. 5 or 6 times.
hanging out in pajamas.until 9’oclock at night.
moving slowly throughout the day.
answering your emails/phone calls whenever you feel like it. (Sorry Tim Ferriss)
Saying, “I’m going to let you go now” to the person on the other end of the phone is draining you of your precious time and energy.
reading 4 books at a time. and possibly not finishing any of them this year.
doing the opposite of what your tight schedule says.
pursuing your wild and outrageous dreams. (ignore the naysayers)
making money. a lot of it.
stopping everything and rolling around in the grass. (I just did this yesterday..AH-MAZING)
sleeping in the middle of the afternoon.
saying YES! WEEEEEEEEEEEEEE
being super pumped and super psyched about your dreams, goals, and accomplishments.
do what makes you feel good and your life will be
