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.

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/
If we are not learning, growing, expanding and taking action, then we’re dying a slow death.
Thank you 2012 for kicking my ass and teaching me these beautiful lessons.
1. Outward success doesn’t mean anything if the home front is falling apart.
Ok, I admit it. I work. A lot. I work to the point where I forget to pick up the phone and call friends and family. I work to the point where I neglect my physical well-being. Everything becomes secondary. Everything. The day that I decided to put me first was the day that the doors opened up to true success. Suddenly I was no longer living my life around my business. Instead, My business was an extension of who I was and I was living my life around it. It takes commitment, dedication, massive accountability, and trust. I’m still working on it but now more than ever, as my company starts to grow and new opportunities are created, I am focused on what matters the most- my health, my marriage, my friendships, and my family.
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
Ok. I just need to break it down.
the only thing “scary” about your fear-
is actually listening and letting your fear dominate
your reason for being.That is all.
your fear is not your enemy.
your fear is your friend.
your fear is your GPS.
my GPS recalculates when I don’t listen to it.
It’s the same concept. When you let you fear dictate your actions the entire course of your journey is recalculated.
Sure, it will get you to your destination (where ever that may be), and you may need to take some local roads-
but the GPS will clearly get you to where you need to go.
just like your fear.
Listen to it, respect it, and honor it.
it will take you to exactly where you are intended to go.
