The road to success is always
bumpy and has detours. If you take on the mindset that your career
is your spiritual path — and that your spiritual path gives you
protective armor and tools for learning and growing through
whatever you encounter — then by golly, you’ll be successful beyond
your wildest dreams.
Perseverance to reach a goal,
without attachment to how you’ll get there or how easy it’ll be, is
key. Being willing to invest appropriately for a scalable return on
investment is another goal. Both keys are tackled head-on in
The other very big concept here
is that you're after continual evolution of your lifestyle design.
Or maybe I’m projecting. I’m after continual evolution of my
lifestyle design while I hit increasingly challenging career goals.
I’m upping my impact and my days off, and my zone of genius days
on, simultaneously. I’m having more fun than ever.
I know this is what we all sense is possible.
Getting there is a question of wanting it enough to grow through
the shadow issues that tend to surface when you get real about your
career. And don’t forget — once you have the right business model,
all your past investments will start to pay off. You’ll be able to
properly offer your unique services and all the experience and
education that you already possess!

— We’re all familiar with the concept of planting seeds and having
some of them sprout into large plants. Others might be latent and
not sprout for years. That’s how investments in your career may be,
too. Those career seeds may not produce growth until later on, but
they still need to be nurtured.
— It’s natural to become frustrated with the hard times. But when
we learn the lessons and learn a leverageable business model that
works with our lifestyle, we relax into the realization of the true
benefit of taking a wellness pro career on as a spiritual
— Many wellness pros often don’t have the right strategy, and it’s
hard when you have too many bits and pieces of information but
don’t know how to synthesize them. A solid business strategy helps
those pieces come together to increase profits, both monetarily and
in the ways you can help people.
— There aren’t many wellness pros out there who have had sales
training. Many of them have invested in a lot into their careers,
but sales isn’t part of that for them. It’s a piece of training
that all of them will need, and it’s important to invest in, even
though it might not click initially. Making and nurturing that
investment are key.
