I hear people saying, “I do whatever it takes” to grow my business, to create more impact, to support my vision and mission. But when it comes to making a choice, a lot of them procrastinate, find excuses and reasons to do it just a little bit later. When they will be more prepared and ready to handle the “growth.” However, the main reason women I work with is the fear of betting even busier than they already are. This is what's holding back so many from achieving amazing results, creating greater impact, and truly level up like never before. And I get it! If to level up in your business means to work longer hours, it's simply not worth it.
Let's switch your mindset into a fearless level up mode and show you how to go full force ahead and work less. You see, success means very little if you have “no life” outside your business. Surely you want to enjoy the fruits of your work, right? Surely you want to be able to spend time with people you love, create long-lasting happy memories without feeling guilty about missing out on business opportunities, and vice versa.
Level up and work less guilt-free. It takes a switch in your mindset to get out of the thought about hard bork being something to look up to. Saying like: “True success requires sacrifice,” “Success is no accident, it is hard work,” “time is money.” You see how we have been conditioned into adapting these believes that serve us in a very little way. How about thriving for this instead: “Being wealthy means having time,” “Making money is easy,” “Success comes effortlessly.” At the end of the day, it comes down to what we allow ourselves to believe in. But the best part is that we can change our beliefs, we can change our habits and behavior so that it serves our mission, goals, and vision to create impact, change lives, and be the best we can be in this world. It's all in your hands (and head)!
Understanding how much your time is worth and how much you want it to be worth is the fundamental step towards clarity of your success path. When I ask women what they would do with extra 10 hours per week, most of them turn away in disbelief, commenting that it is unrealistic. And the truth is - it is! It is absolutely unrealistic if you believe that! If you can’t tell me right now what you will do with as little as 2 extra hours every day, you will probably never have an extra 2 hrs per day. What we believe we achieve, steps back and think about it for a moment. What would it mean for you to have these extra hours? How would you prefer to spend them? And don't think about your household work, outside business obligation, or even another work project because you will always find time for those (usually by lacking sleep, self-care, and other balanced life fundamentals). What would it take to create those 2h hours in your day so you can recharge and be a better you for everyone, including yourself? If the answer is clear for you, you are truly ready to level up and work less.
Your commitment is what will take you from where you are at the moment to where you want to be both in your business and life. Once the diction is made, there is no way back. Now the path leads only up. Your commitment will allow you to aspect the guidance, trust the process, implement new ways to work smarter, not harder, and truly leverage your time in business so you can work less and enjoy the success. Yes, it will not always be easy. Yes, it will require you to step outside your comfort zone. Yes, it will challenge you in more ways than one. Yes, it will be all worth it, because nothing, nothing is more precious than time.
This is my life's mission to help women truly leverage their time, work effectively, efficiently, and effortlessly so they can work less and level up at the same time. You can always earn more money, but you can’t get more time. We all have 24hrs per day, so it's important how we choose to spend it.
If you are ready to level up and work less, if you are ready to leverage your time and grow your business, if you are ready to take the next step in creating time freedom while running a thriving business, I invite you to join me in “Less is More” Academy. The doors are open.
Have fun creating the life of your dreams, and never stop improving. I'm cheering you on!
