Stop TRYING…

 

Stop TRYING my love.

Stop trying to be something or someone that you are not.  Especially to those who are out of alignment with you. There is no use trying with people who are committed to misunderstanding you or being in your power and energy to only take from you.

Stop throwing your energy at them and giving them attention.

Walk away.
And do not hold the thought that it may in some way be cold or selfish.  It is not.

It is saying, to yourself and the world, that your energy is precious and you are unavailable to spend it on anyone or anything that does not serve you or your highest good.

Do not stay in a place or around people that make you feel emotionally exhausted because your energy is better spent on things that level you up and better yourself, building your biz, working on your mindset, nurturing your brand, etc…

Let them go in peace.
If you were meant to have a connection the universe will work it out.

Trust that everything happens for a reason, even when it is painful and disappointing. Sometimes these lessons hurt the worst, almost sacrificial, but it is time to KNOW that you are all that you ever need.

You do not need anyone outside of YOURSELF to validate you, make you feel worthy or valuable.

YOU are always enough and perfect exactly as you are.

Have faith and believe that everything always works out for you and all that happens is for your highest good.

Everything happening in your life right now is setting you up to live your best life.

FEEL gratitude for these lessons because without them, you wouldn’t be the you that you are right now.

And you, right now, are PERFECT.

So, stop trying, stop trying so very hard and let it go.

And know that you are always more than enough… and PERFECT.

Hello.  ❤️

Founder, director, brand strategist and design genius all rolled into one fun, crazy, sassy, no BS, surfer chick that LOVES branding, strategy and OOZES mad design skills.  I’m a master at bridging the gap between YOU and your business to create a ‘stand out’ brand that makes an impact, attracts your dream clients, positions you as an expert that can charge premium prices so that you can become the amazing leader you were born to be.

OMG did ya hear??

 

OMG did ya hear?

I have just pre-released my brand new ‘out of this world’ 6-week total immersion into YOU and your BRAND group coaching program!

Phew – that was a mouthful LOL

So… what is it even all about?

I am glad you asked lovely….

This whole program flew out of my mindballs like an idea explosion that just had to be put into play.  I am so extra EXTRA excited about this that I can’t even….

I am going to take you on THE ride of getting tuned in and tapped into everything YOU and then…. We are going to CONNECT all of that yummy goodness that is you, to you BRAND!  Because when you and your brand are aligned, things just flow!

Offers flow, sales flow, dream clients flow, the money flows!

All the things flow.

That is when business becomes fun and easy.  Easy and fun.

And totally flowy (yes, that is totally a word)

Sometimes we all get caught up in the business of business. We forget who we are and why we do what we do.  Time ticks by, things stay the same, nothing accelerates or is super extra fun anymore.

So what happened?

You forgot who you are.

That’s what happened.

Once you tune back in to who you are and take action based on your feelings, desires, inspiration, and what YOU want, that’s when things become fun again.  Easy again.

I’ve been there many times.

It’s not a nice place.

To wake up late or feel icky because you really are not stoked to go to work or talk to your not so awesome clients or grind, grind, and hustle for getting nowhere really.

It’s depressing AF.

It’s not fun.

It’s when you start to question and doubt everything that you do.

So…. Let’s stop with the drudgery right there. Stop. Done.

No more of that.

YOU are going to click that link down there and sign up to this insanely amazeballs program that I created JUST FOR YOU!

We are going to tune you back in and connect YOU with your brand, then fine tune everything to be in perfect visual and energetic alignment (this is what attracts your dream clients and tribe to you).

(and that’s just week 1!!!!)

And it’s just gonna get more and more fun and easier and easier.

But –

it’s not for everyone.

There are a group of you out there that know, KNOW, that the industry standard or the rules that everyone plays by are not for them.

You play by your own rules.

But…You don’t quite know exactly how to go about it.

What to do next

Where to go

What to say

What to sell

How to launch it

How to DO THE DARN THING. 

The thing that you know you must do.

To be yourselves

If you are one of the rule breakers and action takers that are ready to light up their life and business with joy and fun and ease and dream clients and sales… and also know what to do and how to do it…. then check out the deets in the link below.

I will entertain you.

I will inspire you.

I will shake you up!

Unleash your Soul Brand!

OMG YES!

Limited spot, excess fun!

Xx

Let inspiration just flow…

 

Sometimes I wonder what the hell I am going to write today.

What is the message that needs to come out?

What am I here to do… today?
Who do I need to be?

Because today is all that matters.

Right here, right now
and right now
and right now
and right now.

Do you see?

Do you see how that is the only thing that matters.

You can’t change your past, it is what it is and it is exactly as you manifested it.

Just like a moment ago is exactly as you manifested it.

The future is not yet here and it CAN change now
and now
and now….
and now.

The future is out there, somewhere out of reach because all you have, all we ever have is right here, right now.

So what is the message right now?

Well, I guess the message right now is to tell you, to motivate you, to inspire you, to tune into the message.

Let it flow.

Feel good in the knowing that the message is coming and that you are available to receive it and to share it or create an offer around it or sell it or give it away or just revel in the message itself and know that you are exactly where you are meant to be.

If you find yourself worried about the future, stop.

Stop and take a look at where you are.

What are you doing right now, today to move you forward?
Who are you BEING that feels good right now?

From that space of tuning in to just right now, you will always be okay.

You will be inspired.

You will be inspired to take action. The only action needed right now in order to move forward.

So… if this all sounds like woo woo WTF are you on about Steph… then stop.

Tune in and ask yourself, what am I meant to do right now?
How am I meant to feel, Who am I meant to BE?

Because right now is all that matters.

When you are tuned in, you can’t make the wrong decision, because every decision is right and PERFECT for you at this time.   It is not clouded by the past or the hopes of the future, it is in tune with only right now.

BE excited in the fact that whatever you choose right now is PERFECT and it will ALWAYS work out for you.

So, right now…. what you are going to do?
Who are you going to BE?

Give that to-do list the middle finger

 

 

Yeah, I’ve done it.  Many times.

I’ve looked at my to-do list and my brain instantly went a little mushy.

Has this happened to you to?

I will admit, I have been guilty a time or two (or 152) to end up on the couch watching netflix because I just couldn’t even…

TOO MUCH TO DO SO NOTHING GETS DONE.
or
I WAS REALLY BUSY DOING FUCK ALL NOTHIN’.

It’s a thing people. I mean is there a support group for this shit?  Cuz if there is, sign me the fuck up!

Nowadays (not including last Thursday of course – a whole season of True Blood ticked off that list lol) I go about it a bit differently.  And… it’s all thanks to my lovely new habit of journalling – every single day without fail.  (sometimes twice.. shhh)

Every single morning, first thing (after I make my coffee of course – can you even imagine…) I write my INTENTION for the day.   I write out exactly how I am going to feel before I go to bed, knowing that I got shit done.

I fast forward to the end of the day and see myself relaxing in satisfaction, knowing that I got all the things that I am meant to do, done.  Not everything… just the high priority things.

How do you know which ones are high priority (except the obvious of course)?

Well, you ask.

You go inside yourself for a minute and ask.   What does my soul want to do? What does my soul require?  Soul needs, desires and requirements always come first = high priority.

High priority does not necessarily mean the things you THINK you SHOULD be doing.

High priority are the things that LIGHT YOU UP!

The things that you are excited to do. Those ‘hell yes’ items on your list.

So I digress… back to the future…. when I fast forward and find myself in that place of accomplishment and satisfaction, before bed, i LOOK BACK at my day.

From that space of the satisfied person at the end of the day, I look and see what it was that I did.

What steps did I take to get there? What actions did I commit to and do?  How did I feel?

When you look back from that space, of BEING that person, the person who accomplished all that needed to be done and felt satisfied…. it is much easier to FLOW through your day.

You may have seen yourself take a break for a massage or to get your hair done or go have a coffee with some mates.

Or you may have had a flash of getting that new offer out there and telling everyone… or maybe you finished or started those client projects that you felt ready to do.

Whatever IT IS that you do that day, you know it is the right thing to do because of your INTENTION on how you’re going to feel at the end of the day.

Then you DECIDE.

You have to decide that you are going to do the work, do the thing, that you need to do in order to BE that person you saw at the end of the day.

Here is what I wrote today for myself –

“My intention for the day is to feel accomplishment for doing what I am meant to do with ease and flow with fun thrown in of course! Today I teased my upcoming event with the energy and vibe that has already attracted more of my tribe to me. This put me in the energy and space of completing one of my client’s projects with ease. The mindset / inner work I did today uplevelled the shit out of me and I even more available to step fully into my purpose.  I lay down in bed completely satisfied with it all”

It is so much easier to FLOW through your day, even with a massive to-do list, when you have set your intention!

Now, you can look at that mile-long to-do list and the things that light you up and the items that feel like they were done by the end of your intended day will just pop out at you.

Do not concern yourself with anything else.

Just flow through those that you FEEL you are meant to do and when you go to bed, you will feel those feelings and revel in your power!

Then, you go to sleep, wake up and DO IT ALL AGAIN!

Tell me, what is your INTENTION for the day?

Change your day from ‘meh’ to FUCK YEAH!

 

Change your day from ‘meh’ to FUCK YEAH!

How, you ask?

Priorities!

Priorities are those fascinating little things that set your day, your life, your business in motion.

When you have priorities, you magically have more time.

But, if you don’t, then you will be like most people out there ‘busy doing fuck all / nothing’.

Make sure you spend time WRITING your priorities in life AND business.

If you don’t have priorities, it’s like driving around aimlessly with no destination. Don’t run your business like a gypsy or a nomad.   (and I’m not referring to the ‘living a laptop lifestyle’ or travelling the world like a gypsy or nomad and running your business from that space – which is fucking awesome by the way)

I’m saying RUN your business with clear goals and focus.

When you have clear priorities, time magically appears for them.  Because when you know your priorities and write them out with the intention that they are non-negotiable and really are PRIORITIES – then you will make sure that the time to do them is available.   It happens subconsciously and consciously.

You should do this daily and monthly and go big – plan out how things will look 3 months from now or 1 year from now. What are you doing?
What does it look like?
How does your day go?
What actions are you taking?

From that space, you can now write out matching priorities and actions that you can take to propel you to that place.

It is one of the best things you can do TODAY – write out your priorities – your BIG goals – it’s SEXY and your clients will love you for it.

and…

It makes the choices and decisions that you need to make in life and business that much easier – because you have clear focus and priorities from which to measure an outcome.

So, go on… grab a pen, start writing… and change your day from ‘meh’ to FUCK YEAH!

They may TRY to copy you…

 

So, you sit there, scrolling, scrolling… and then you see something.

It catches your eye.

You stop, look at it and think, this looks familiar.

What IS this?

Is this MINE?
But I didn’t write this.
I didn’t post this.

This isn’t ME.

Then you lean forward, read it all again and think

WTAF??!!!

You are looking at a post or service or a product or some creative or event or IDEA that was YOURS.

This is YOUR thing.

WHY is your thing being used and sold and promoted as this OTHER persons thing?

You my friend, have just been copied.

The first inclination, of course, is to be upset, outraged, annoyed, pissed off, angry, violated.

But….

I want to show you another view on this.

I always believe that everything always works out for me. ALWAYS. No matter what.

So, if this person is copying me, what is the reason behind it?

The way to overcome this is to give gratitude for it, then look at it without emotion.  Look at it with curiosity. Examine it. Question it.

Why?  Why would this person steal my shit or my idea and copy me?

Because they want what you have.
They want to be YOU.

I always say, “If you don’t have haters, you’re doing it wrong”.

The same goes with copiers.  If you are putting out amazing ideas, products, services, events, creative work, then there will be people who envy that and want that.  And, eventually copy you.  Or at least try.

Yes it fucking sucks.

But, remember – they can copy all they want, but
they will never BE YOU,
they will never be more successful THAN YOU,
they will never feel the same sense of amazing satisfaction that you feel when you create this stuff.

That’s the thing with BRANDING.  When you do it right, when you effectively, completely and wholeheartedly GO ALL IN on your brand and make it a part of everything that you do and put out there, it can’t be replicated.

Those of you who do the copying, you’re better off focusing on YOUR shit and putting your brand and all of you into YOUR ideas.  Selling other peoples ideas will never be as successful as something you create YOURSELF. Never.

People can smell bullshit a mile away.  And they can sense when you don’t have the confidence and energy to back up the thing.

On both sides of the equation here….

ONLY YOU CAN DO YOU.

They cannot copy your ENERGY.
You cannot copy their energy.

They cannot copy your VIBE.
You cannot copy their vibe.

They cannot put the emotion and feeling and intention behind the THING like only you can.

As the creator the thing, YOUR thing… it will always be yours.

Revel in the fact that you ARE that FUCKING AWESOME that people want to copy your shit.

Then, you sit back, and you keep scrolling, with a little smirk on your face, KNOWING, knowing that they can try, but they will never catch up or be YOU.

Just do the damn thing…

 

Just do the damn thing!

This phrase seems to pop up a lot lately and float around my head pretty much most of the day.

So what am I NOT doing that I NEED to do so this message will stop?

I must be blocking something.  hmmm…  maybe, maybe not.

Maybe I just haven’t looked inside and found out what that damn thing actually IS.

I am thinking though, as I write this of course, that the damn thing may just in fact be the Brand Clarity Crash Course that I am meant to be launching “this week” for the last 6 weeks or so.

Well, yes, I guess we could call that a fucking BLOCK now couldn’t we?

So, what am I going to DO about it?

I am going to JUST DO THE DAMN THING.

That’s exactly what I am going to do.

I AM launching THIS WEEK.

I AM promoting it everywhere.

I AM sharing my message about it daily.

I AM doing live streams on it regularly.

and I am going to launch the damn thing.

And how do we know that I am actually, finally, going to just do the damn thing?

I am going to, RIGHT NOW, tell you that I am launching my BRAND CLARITY CRASH COURSE.

TOMORROW – you will get more details with a link to the sales page, where you can read all about my kick ass, eye opening, mind blowing, TOTAL FUCKING CLARITY, 4 day course.

That’s it.

It is DONE.

There you go.

NOW, here I go, to JUST DO THE DAMN THING.

My new reality… and what the hell I am meant to do

 

Hey girlfriend!

I say that all upbeat, in that high pitched voice we all use when saying HI and BYE… (I  know you do it too, we all do LOL)

but…

I’m not feeling too upbeat at the  moment.

Actually I FEEL scared shitless.

I’ve been doing a lot of mindset and inner work and I’ve been discovering things… SOUL things.  What I’m meant to do on this planet at this time kinda THINGS.

Fuck.

Scary.

How.

What the fuck…. AM.  I.  GOING.  TO.  DO.  ??

Well, I guess I am going to DO the THING.

I am just going to do it. I will listen everyday and feel what I am meant to do NEXT.  Then I will do THAT.

Baby steps.

I have to remember and tell myself, BABY STEPS.

I KNOW that every choice that I make is PERFECT and I can never make the wrong choice or decision because I TRUST and have FAITH and BELIEVE that I always make the perfect choice for ME.

so…

Baby steps it is.

That first step is DONE.

It is right here.

Writing it down, right now.

Recognising it.

Choosing it.

Deciding that is so, because it fucking IS.

and SHARING IT.

So, here you go.  Here I go.
