Lately I’ve been trying to take more time to celebrate the transformations – big and small – in my own life. Here are some of the things I’ve noticed as a result of doing visibility clearing work:
1. Last weekend I was over-charged at a shop. Normally I’d feel slightly uncomfortable about pointing that out to the shop assistant. This time I just mentioned the discrepancy and it was fixed within a moment.
2. Recently I had the smashed screen on my phone fixed. When I got home I realised the touch ID had stopped working. Normally I’d consider not doing anything about that and overlook the inconvenience, grateful that at least the screen wasn’t cracked anymore. Here’s what I did this time; I went back to the shop and asked them to fix it. They did straight away and thanked me for coming back.
3. I also had a new desk delivered and when I opened the box there was some damage to it. Not huge damage but enough to make me disappointed. For a moment I wondered whether to let it go, then I decided no – I’d paid good money for that desk and I wanted one that was damage free. So I contacted the company and within two hours they’d organised a new desk to be delivered within the week.
These might seem like little things but for me they’re just more evidence of how easy life can be when you turn within and clear your blocks.
When you do that, you’re so much more willing to speak up – not in anger or frustration but with confidence and clarity.
In the past I might have been fearful about raising my voice; afraid of causing conflict. But there was no conflict when I spoke up. There was just direct communication and an immediate change in circumstances that got me the result I was looking for.
In the space of the last fortnight I’ve been offered three opportunities to be featured in a magazine, a program and on a podcast where lots of my ideal customers are hanging out.
I didn’t seek out any of those opportunities, they all came to me, and they were all organised with absolute ease. They also allowed me to be visible in a way that was comfortable to me (i.e., I didn’t have to leave the house or travel anywhere. I could just sit at home and spend time connecting with amazing women about topics I love talking about).
And here’s the point of this post; business and life can be like this all the time.
If you’re clear of your visibility blocks and comfortable with speaking up and being seen and heard in the world.
A Visible Woman is the perfect block clearing course for women who want to be at ease in speaking up in the world. It opens again for registration in late September 2017.
