Getting Over Overwhelm
I’m going to do a quick power session with Minnie the Manifesting Coach. And we’re going to be talking today about overwhelm. We’re going to be talking today about some of those mindset blocks that hold you back. And she is going to share her best tips, she works with entrepreneurs as well. And if you are here watching, go ahead and wave, give us some hearts, we’d love to hear from you. If you have any mindset blocks, holding you back right now or something holding you back in your business, feel free to put it in the comments, and maybe we’ll be able to cover it.
And I want to let you know, if you are on my VIP email list, you have been getting my updates about the zero to hero coach inner circle, which is super exciting. It is open for enrollment right now. It’s my signature program teaching you how to book clients online, how to get more discovery calls with the right people, how to convert your sales, how to overcome some of the mindset blocks, how to not get overwhelmed.
So we’re giving you a plan. And it’s customizable. It’s one of the most intimate small group coaching programs I know of. So I’m super excited to be bringing it back for summer spring sessions, so many is here, she’s gonna join us and we’ll get started, you know, in a sentence or two, share what you do. And then I’d love to just ask you, what’s the biggest reason why you see entrepreneurs getting overwhelmed when it comes to the just the way they’re thinking about things in their business?
Creating a Freedom Lifestyle
Mm hmm. Yeah. So what I do is, I’m a manifestation coach, and I work with entrepreneurs who are mostly online coaches are looking to create a freedom lifestyle. So we want time, freedom, financial freedom, and really importantly, emotional freedom as well. Because sometimes we get down that path where business is going well, but we’re just so overwhelmed, as you said, so stressed out, and we’re not actually enjoying it. So that’s, that’s the work that I do. And what is the main thing that I see causing overwhelm for people, I would definitely say that that is having our attention focused in the future. So I do a lot of work about coming back into the present.
And you know, there’s lots of different quick tips and techniques within mindfulness that can be really useful for that. Because in the present moment, there’s, there’s really no overwhelm. If we’re safe, we were here can feel your feet on the ground. It’s okay. But when we start to think about all of our to do lists all of our goals for the future, or what we could have done in the past. And our energy just kind of starts to split in too many directions, we just kind of got to come back to the present moment where we are right now and check in with ourselves right now.
Love it. Yeah. And I think that when it comes to overwhelm, something that gets you out of overwhelm, is just simply saying, what, how do I want to be and what do I want to do in the next like 15 minutes, rather than thinking about 10 years down the road, or, you know, the past or the future? Like you said, getting too focused, too ahead of yourself? I think that that’s a really good way to kind of get yourself focused. And even though the next 15 minutes in the present, it’s, it’s at least taking it back a little bit. Yeah. Yes. And so when it comes to creating freedom in your business with your time, and you know, the way that you’re doing things, I think overwhelms the opposite of freedom.
Determining What to Focus On
And so is having just kind of mindset, things going on in your head clutter in your head that’s holding you back from giving your all in the present moment. So what would you say to somebody who maybe is like, Alright, well, you’re telling me to focus on the present, and I want to, you know, feel like my business is moving forward. But maybe I’m not seeing the results as quickly as I’d like, or I’m getting impatient. And they are focusing on what they don’t have, how do you help your clients to stay consistent and stay focused without getting defeated or things like that?
Huh? Yeah, that’s such a great question. And I think it’s definitely something that pretty much anyone who’s going to start a business is going to come up against at some point in time. So there’s a few ways to do that. And I think something that I like to focus on a lot is refining your purpose and your why. And it’s like, why, why are you doing any of this? Why do you want to show up each day because we always have a choice.
What Fulfills You?
And sometimes we kind of feel like it gets into this routine, even with our businesses where it’s like a job and it’s like, oh, my gosh, I’ve got a person and I’ve got to do all these things. And it’s like, well, no, you don’t you can create your business if you really if you want and then the overwhelm will go away, but is that really going to fulfill you is that going to make you happy?
Or are you here because you want to share your message. You want to do something that you enjoy And you believe in your potential to build that into what you want it to be. So just getting really clear on why you’re doing it. And just clarity is a really big thing for me. When I start working with clients, we do a lot of work on refining all the steps of the vision, the big vision, the small goals, and all of those sorts of things.
Getting a Clear Picture
So just get a really clear picture of what’s going on right now. Do you need to get some more help? Do you need to come to someone like yourself and get some more business strategy? And, do you need to come to someone like me and and sort through the the mental things going on? Why? Why are you choosing to show up each day? And what steps can you actually take to make each day a little bit easier? Yeah, I
love that. And one of my favorite questions sometimes that I journal, and it’s like, how can I make and then certain goal easier for tomorrow? That gets you focused on what I can do today. And something else that when it comes to your purpose, like and your why, how does it what if somebody is like, I don’t know. I mean, I just want to I want to have a business, I want to coach people, I want to help people, but that’s such a it’s not going to carry them through. So how do you any tips for getting clear on what your why is?
Work with Purpose
Yes, a few things. I think, when I’m doing work with purpose, the thing that always just kind of hits a chord for me and helps me to, to define that for myself is what would you want someone to say at your funeral? What would be that passage that people are reading about who you are as a purpose and what your life meant? Because I think that really puts it into the grand perspective of what’s really important. And also, I find that kind of helps with some of that, those day to day overwhelms that come up. Because you kind of get perspective on what’s really important to you. And it kind of recenter yourself back to your purpose in that way.
Another thing to do is the Ikigai Exercise, which is a really popular one, which is really helpful. And that’s asking yourself four questions. What am I really good at? What can I get paid for? And, what does the world need? And what’s the other one slipping from my mind right now? But those are three, three good ones to start off there. And what am I really good at? What can I get paid for? And what does the world actually need right now, when you do some journaling on that, because like you said, journaling is a great tool. You you start to see some correlations. And you that can help you if you’re unsure on your purpose as well. Especially if you’re kind of unsure of how to turn your purpose into a career that you can monetize.
Mm hmm. Yeah, for sure. And I love that you shared the three questions because it’s, it isn’t just what do I feel like doing because there’s a difference between having a business that you’re counting on to provide for you for every single need, you have, you know, if you’re providing it for fun, you’re providing for it for passion you’re providing, you need it to provide for you money wise, you need it. To me, I’m like, it doesn’t have to be that you can you have your feelings you want in your life. And when you’re putting the pressure on your business to give you all of your needs, that’s when it becomes not fun, that’s when it becomes a problem. Right?
So I like how what the purpose question you’re not just going with, what what do you love to do, because not everybody is going to, and there’s ways to get, like go beyond your like ideas about your purpose, and really see that there’s more meaning behind what you’re coming up with. So for example, I love helping entrepreneurs not have to do I think we move better, we move faster and better when we have a team around us when we have the poor and when we have somebody helping us take off of our hands what we might not be the best at and help them be able to like I like to help coaches be able to serve their clients better and do what they’re actually really good at with my marketing services.
Seeing the Bigger Picture
And then they don’t have to do that stuff. But you know, at the same time, I also in a bigger picture, I want to help the world become a more personal development driven, you know, healthier because I work with a lot of health coaches place and I do that by helping these coaches carry out their messages and it’s way more powerful than me just coaching on health or personal development or whatever, to help these coaches grow their business and have a big impact. So I think when it comes to your why you you can kind of go deeper with it then probably what you thought of before where it’s like I just want to help people or I just, you know ask yourself why why why why why to get to that bottom line right. Now when it comes to I know another big thing.
When I talk to coaches and consultants that they struggle with is they say, Okay, I’m overwhelmed. And I feel like I’m not good enough, or I feel like, I’m not seeing anything new here, or I’m, I’m, maybe, you know, I don’t know, what makes me unique. So how does when you have that not enough kind of vibe? What do you tell your clients to start working through that?
All About Empowerment
I think a big part of what I do is very centered around empowerment. So I think, like, what you’re describing there, to me, really, is that lack of empowerment isn’t out within yourself. So I think for me, I’ve found that doing that purpose work, and really connecting deep into there and finding a route that works for you, like you said, and which might be more creative than you would have imagined. But when you really are anchored into that purpose, there’s a lot more empowerment in there. I would say, and then from there, you know, your purpose, but then maybe you’re still fearing, like you said, but can I like, Am I going to really be able to fulfill this?
Am I going to be good enough to do this? Like, is it not already people that are doing this better than me. And for me, obviously, as a manifestation coach, I really lean into my spirituality very heavily on a day to day basis. So my view on that is that you wouldn’t be here, right now, if you didn’t have something to offer, you wouldn’t have that desire within you. If you weren’t meant to have that desire, it’s there for a reason. And the only way to kind of to move through that to find that out, to find out if it’s going to be something that works amazingly, are something that fails amazingly, is to move through it, you’re not going to know if you don’t take the action and try it anyway.
Learning and Growing
And the there is no failure really, because you’re going to learn and grow. Who Who knows where you’re going to be in five years in 10 years? You can’t You can’t predict that. So there’s no use trying to figure out Will I be successful in this? Will I hit that goal? Will I be able to do that? We’re never going to know until you try it out. So just follow your passion. And enjoy that again, come back to that present moment. enjoy what you’re doing. And we’ll see where it leads you.
Right. Yeah, knowing that you’re already enough, you already, you know, are a human being who’s had life experiences and who is worthy. We all are born with that, right? It’s not like, you know, we question if a new baby is like, Well, what do we like this one, do we not? But if you knew that, what would you do? If you knew you? Were they were worthy? If you knew you were enough, if you knew that?
Yeah, you might fail, but you don’t need to make it mean anything about you. And if you’re enough or not, what would you do? What would you be doing different? So I like the way that you explain that. And how can people be connecting with you to talk more about manifesting and more about these mindset things? Because obviously, we are doing a power session today, but I’d love to share where they can find you.
