Dirty secrets of “Suck it up” & “Power through”

Dirty secrets of “Suck it up” & “Power through”

Dearest Gorgeous Light,

I hope this love note finds you in a space of total bliss, in one where you are rejoicing this life you have created for yourself!

With that said…. Today’s musings are not so blissful and unfortunately I see many many many buying into it’s dogma and hence suffering from it’s wrath. So what am I talking about? What could possibly be so volatile, so self offensive, so self destructive, and equally sneaky as it’s commonly disguising itself as something honorable? This idea of “Just suck it up and do it already!” also known as Powering Through.

For the sake of this love note, I’ll be referencing this in regards to professional success, but please know, this rings true for ALL areas of your life.

So there’s this tragically common mistake I see entrepreneurs making, and unfortunately many coaches teaching… which essentially goes something like this….

work hard….

work harder…..

ignore the fear and resistance…..

in fact DO MORE because you feel fear and resistance…..

JUST DO IT!!!!!!!




It’s this totally externally focussed way of attempting to attain success and it doesn’t work. Well let me back up…. it many times works in the short term. You suck it up, power through, create some money…. wooohooo!!! Right???? Noooope…. wrong! Because this type of success is not sustainable for many of us sensitive sweeties. In fact many times this short term success comes crashing down with a longer period of time totally depleted, totally crashed out, and energetically (and possibly physically) crawling into fetal position.

Raise your hand if you’ve been there…. *I’m totally raising my hand, waving it around in the air like I just don’t care (but I do, honey….ohhhhh do I care….)*

I shared in my last email that many times when my soul family mentorship clients come to me, I have to spend time UNDOING what they’ve learned and think they should be doing in their biz. We have to shed everyone else’s way and get authentically clear in what is actually right for them, what actually lights them up, what actually feels GOOD. Buh-bye “I should be….” and HELLO “I get to….”

So why isn’t the powering through method sustainable?

Well let me ask you this… Let’s say you have a goal of running a marathon butttttttt you’ve only ever run under a mile and really aren’t a runner. The power through method would have you essentially running as hard as you could and as fast as you could every single day till you met your goal to run a marathon. After that marathon is done…. do ya really think you’ll keep running? My guess is no. My guess is you’ll be so darn exhausted, mentally, emotionally, spiritually, physically that you would just say to heck with it. And even if you did decide to run a marathon again, my guess it you’d take a substantial amount of time off to recover from the trauma you just put yourself through.

Now how about this scenario instead…. Since you aren’t an avid runner yet, we go on a light jog a few days of the week, take time to really enjoy the experience, check out the sights around, take pause to enjoy the sun and fresh air, really feel into your body and relish in the happy chemicals being released into the body, essentially creating the experience around your joy, your pleasure, and what works for you while still being challenging enough that you’re growing as a runner. We thoughtfully pick where we’re running, when we’re running, and how we’re running around what truly and authentically feels right for you. The entire experience is so enjoyable that you begin to want to run more and more. And before you know it, you’re able to run a marathon! Now just because you’re able to run it, doesn’t mean you have to run it all the time. In fact you can achieve marathon status and only ever run the full marathon here and there. But consistently you keep running in your day to day life because you really love it and hence this change is SUSTAINABLE!

BOTH get you your goal of marathon status, but only one keeps ya hitting the pavement (and enjoying it).

Now I’m not actually a professional runner …. but you get my analogy, right?

To create radical sustainable change, you must must must create it in a WHOLENESS approach around YOU.

None of this “learn my method and be successful”. Instead…. Learn about YOU, YOUR needs, YOUR desires, and build YOUR life and biz around that.

As an expert in how the unconscious and conscious minds work, powering through will always create a pendulum swinging effect. You may swing into new success, but you will always swing back many times worse than before ya started. Learning how to create sustainable change comes from a way different approach then “just suck it up and do it”. It comes from building the inner resources necessary for success, designing your external world around your own unique internal needs, and authentically aligning with your desires. Sustainable success is truly an inside job. 

Radical sustainable change comes from profound inner transformation.

…and this is my specialty!

So many are living their lives in this externally focussed, goal oriented existence. It looks something like this, “I want this amount of money, this amount of clients, this amount on my list….” etc etc etc. That’s all fine. It’s good to have goals. But there’s a MUCH MORE POWERFUL place to be in life, it acts sort of like a vortex attracting success into your life (vs. the need to chase it, go get it, and just suck it up and do it). What is this glorious place I speak of? It’s a space where you’re totally lit up, totally inspired, and connected to the joy of it. In this space, you are MAGNETIC. You are literally drawing in success. But this type of sustainable success is achieved through profound inner transformation. again…. this is my expertise. 

Are you wanting to create radical sustainable changes in your life? Are you wanting to create a life around YOU? How about biz around you? Does the idea of “suck it up and just do it” make you want to curl up into fetal position (me too, by the way, me too… and I’m living proof you can be successful without buying into that crappola).

If this is you, and you’re TIRED of the struggle, tired of the short lived success of “powering through”,  then I want to extend the sincerest warmest invitation to get in touch with me. I’m ready to help you into YOUR inner super stardom and YOUR life of ease. My openings for support are extremely limited. So if this speaks to you, if you’ve been on the fence….
