My latest newsletter lost me 20 subscribers…
…and I’m so pleased!
I challenged myself to be ‘more me’ and I dashed off a newsletter that was full of excitement about my dynamic FB group, which is now over 150 souls strong, and about the cutting-edge work I’m doing in my new manifesting course, as well as my fever-pitch euphoria about the discoveries I’ve been making about the keys to happiness that I shared my recent posts (particularly The Magic Power to Transform Everything).
Most newsletters, I receive a modest one or two unsubscribe notices. This time I got closer to 20.
Either everyone is doing their seasonal cleaning, or my excitement struck a chord. It think it did – about the same amount of people asked to join my FB group as asked to unsubscribe.
To me, this means success.
It means I am sounding less vanilla and more like my quirky, enthusiastic self.
It means I am letting people know who I am, and how excited I am about the discoveries I’m making, so they can identify whether what I have to offer is for them, or not.
I don’t need any excess baggage, not in life, and not on my list.
I want the people on my list to be the ones who love what I am about, and who want what I have to offer!
To quote Christian Mickelsen, “You can’t bore people into buying from you!” So true! Playing it safe may protect me from negative feedback and unsubscribes, but it won’t win me passionate allies, either.
How do YOU present yourself to the world?
Are your choices safely vanilla, or are you living out loud and in full color?
Being more fully ME means standing up for what I believe in:
I am on fire with my ability to help alleviate suffering in the world. I see so much UNNECESSARY PAIN based on false beliefs and mistaken habits, and I feel so privileged to help people access the joy and abundance that is there for them.
I spent years with my nose pressed against a window, outside looking in, while, it seemed, others feasted in the warm glow of the banquet inside. I walked that painful path, SO YOU DON’T HAVE TO.
I now feel like an honored guest at life’s banquet, and my role and my pleasure is to bring inside all who wish to enter and enjoy the feast.
Reclaiming my birthright of authority and abundance is my life’s work. It gives me JOY and MEANING to serve others by sharing my hard-won knowledge. It rocks my world to guide others past the obstacles, inner critics and false beliefs that have held them back for tens of years, and open the door for them to step into the fulfillment of their own birthright of ABUNDANCE, MEANING, AUTHORITY and JOY.
If folks don’t relate to that – if the thought of their own freedom from suffering and pain doesn’t fill them with a feeling of joy and hope – then they shouldn’t be on my list, at least not until they get tired of pressing their noses against the window pane, and decide it is time to step into the warmth inside.
That’s the banner I’m flying!
What banner do you fly?
Are there areas where you are hiding or disguising your…
Is there a new way in which you would like to let people know who you really are?
Leave your comments below, and I invite you to share ONE THING you’ve been hiding that you might think of allowing the world to know about you!
You control your story.
I invite you to expand the limits of who you are allowed to be, and what you are allowed to share, and let more of YOU shine!
(You’ll know you’re doing great when you get your own ‘unsubscribes!’ In other words, when you start hearing people telling you that you just ‘can’t do that’ you’ll know that you are on the right track!!!)
