The more we believe, dream, and aspire, the more the universe gives us what we want. I’ve recently started accepting clients for my SEO writing services. Before starting, I asked the universe to give me what I wanted. An opportunity to truly be my own boss, work from home, help small businesses grow, and exercise my creative writing skills. I got a new client this week, and have a total of 6 businesses that I work with! It’s incredibly exciting. It’s even more amazing that I made this happen. Through the law of attraction, taking action and stepping outside my comfort zone. Today I’m unleashing my secrets so you too can be your own boss. Take action towards your goals today!
The Artist’s Way
The Artist’s Way by national bestselling author Julia Cameron is one of my favorite books. However, it’s more like a workbook. Each chapter is designed to be a new weekly lesson. The point of the point is to help unleash our creative sides. We do this through morning pages (journaling every morning, right away for at least 3 pages), artists dates, and believing in the basic principles. I started reading this book back in Spring 2019. The Artist’s way lead me to believe in myself, accepting my writer identity, and publishing my first book in November 2019. This book is magical, my friends. It has everything you need to take action towards your goals.
I can personally say that the basic principles helped give me confidence as a writer. As suddenly, it felt shameful not to write, and not to create. Some of the basic principles include:
- Creativity is a spiritual practice. Open ourselves to the creator
- When we open ourselves to our creativity, we open ourselves to the creator’s creativity within us and our lives.
- The refusal to be creative is self-will and is counter to our true nature
- As we open our creative channel to the creator, many gentle but powerful changes are to be expected
- It is safe to open ourselves up to greater and greater creativity.
- Creativity is God’s gift to us. Using our creativity is our gift back to God.
In total there are 10 basic principles. These principles made me realize that being creative, using our strengths is what is natural. It is what God would want for our lives. So, instead of being stagnant and comfortable, I leaped into my creativity. What did I have to lose? Instead, I had everything to gain.
Step into the Unknown
What I know for sure is when we step into the unknown, God helps us. When we take action towards our dreams, the universe helps us. Often, what we fear the most, isn’t actually that scary. For example, when I went to Brazil all by myself, I never actually felt alone. Most people think going to Brazil for 6 months alone is scary, but I wasn’t scared. However, everyone I met along the way was there to teach me something. As if God had personally hand chosen these amazing people for me to meet. All of these experiences are written in great detail, in the Citizen of the World: A Guide to Self Discovery and Adventure.
After being in South America for 6 months, I went to Israel for another 11 months. Upon my return to Canada, I jumped into a commission only, sales position. I would be building my own business. In Israel, I obtained my Master’s degree in Conflict Resolution and Mediation. What could I possibly know about sales? However, I didn’t even think of failure as an option. I knew I was competent. I believed in myself. My actions were filled with good intentions of being kind and helpful to others. Before you know it, I was the #1 new sales rep in all of Canada. Because of my life experience, and my ability to connect with others, I am a successful sales representative. From starting my own business, and excelling in sales, I learned that selling is just about being genuine and helpful.
While I was good at sales, writing was my true passion. Writing makes me feel alive, and more like my authentic self. Thanks to the wisdom in The Artist’s Way, I started writing a lot more. I threw myself into the creative channel. Finally, I finished writing my book (after nearly 3 years of neglecting it). Then, I gained experience with advertising, Amazon sales, and e-commerce. Then, I started building a website for my husband’s business, Doctor Appliance. I taught myself how to write web content that was search engine optimized (SEO). Now, over a year later, I help 6 businesses in total. All because I hoped, believed, dreamed and all my wishes manifested into a reality. Only because I took action towards my goals.
The Law of Attraction
It’s a shame to think that anything is impossible. If you think something is unachievable, it very much will be. However, if you think you can, you can. With the law of attraction, you get exactly what you think about. The more you believe in yourself and take action towards your goals, the more the universe will accommodate your desires!
Success in Business
This is a big secret, but it’s not such a secret at all. Some people don’t start a business, because they haven’t figured everything out. However, I believe the only component you truly need for success in business, is being a good person. Being a good person, and providing value. Ask how can I help others? What can I do for others? The business will fall into place.
It’s never about the money
Along the way, I also motivated my father to quit his 9-5 job after 38 years! I also built him a website, Plumber on the Phone Ottawa. Now, he works for himself and people truly appreciate the quality plumbing service he provides. He feels useful, helpful, and he’s giving back to others while making money! It’s not about the money. By respecting the law of attraction, my dad puts out good and receives good in return. Money cannot be your motivating factor. Instead, your motivation needs to come from a deeper place of wanting to provide value.
What I know for sure is the more we put ourselves out there, the more we grow. The more we grow, and the more we want to grow. Once we achieve one milestone, we’re hungry for the next accomplishment. We feel competent and confident to move forward. We are working through the law of attraction, and deeper outside our comfort zones. Are you scared of the unknown? Are you fearful of what will happen outside your comfort zone? Ask yourself what you are truly afraid of. Whatever you are scared of, it’s a sign you need to go there. Our egos like to maintain comfort and status quo. But, going behind your comfort zone is a chance to ignore your ego, and follow on your heart. Be who you truly are and take action towards your goals.
Greater the Reward
In my experience, the more I act, the more I discover the unknown, the greater the rewards. I wouldn’t be where I am today if I hadn’t quit my 9-5, 7 years ago. I knew it wasn’t for me, and that the world had something bigger in store for me. By listening to my intuition, I’ve created a reality for myself that most people only dream of. Take action towards your goals to reap greater rewards. Everything I have done leads me to where I am today. I met my husband because I studied in Israel. I succeed in sales because I had life experience traveling and talking to people from different cultural backgrounds, and from different parts of the world. In Feb 2020, we traveled to Los Cabos Mexico for a business trip, and magic happened.
Magic in Mexico
While I was going to explain how the trip itself was not my favorite trip, you can always listen to the Los Cabos podcast episode instead. What is important is what happened in Mexico. My husband and I agreed to start trying for a baby. On our very first try, in Mexico I got pregnant. Talk about the law of attraction! I am so excited to announce that I am now 14 weeks pregnant. I am going to be a mother, and it couldn’t be at a more magical, divine time. It is now, that I am the best version of myself. My husband and I are both successfully self-employed, we are in charge of our destinies with our multiple revenue streams. Had I not embraced my writing identity, had I not quit my 9-5 job 7 years ago, had I not gone to Brazil, would I be the same person I am today? No.
Take Action Towards Your Goals
I’m here to tell you and to show you that your dreams can come true. Take a chance, step into the unknown, have faith, and enjoy the journey. You will reap the benefits, and you will get exactly what you need. Trust in your strengths, and don’t be afraid of leaving your comfort zone. Instead, be afraid of staying in your comfort zone! Embrace the law of attraction and you won’t be disappointed.
