::: Be the change you want to see in the world :::
This expression has never really resonated with me. Mostly because I didn’t truly know what it meant.
Having ran a local 6 figure business by the age of 20, the online world was a slap in the face.
Who are all these people preaching on soapboxes, telling you HOW it must be done WHY their way is the best ...and the general chatter is exhausting.
I’ve never promoted the location-independant business ( I actually don’t believe in it- I think you should be involved in your community and promote locally) There was this massive surge of solopreneurs, entrepreneurs, coaches, consultants selling us THE BIG DREAM. The 6 figure dream. The sales funnel dream. The passive income dream.
It triggered me. Because as an already successful business owner, suddenly, I was swimming in a new pond.
A new pond of sharks and self-proclaimed business gurus.
My online presence in the past 3 years has been one of + a mixture of the following:
disappointed + discouraged
Hiding in fear of being hit by a pitch fork.
After working with the most empowered 7 figure female earner this fall, I realized: I need to surround myself with high vibrational people. And raise my intuition, awareness + radars towards more productive + positive minded people.
Yes- we can talk about how people use and overuse the same marketing tactics in facebook groups… but is that really productive ?
I once saw a business coach on her soapbox critisizing MLM businesses- how its not real business, how its a scam etc etc. I politely commented saying I know a few MLM business owners who are real, genuine and earning a fabulous living. She then proceeded to insult me and attack me over social media. She even twisted the truth and made a video how she offended someone who disagreed with her (me) but that you need to keep preaching what you believe, because you'll attract your true tribe.
(she's right about that! negativity begets negativity.)
But I can’t help by notice how we tend to put people down and pass so much judgement in the online space.
If I wanted to see the change in the world...I need to be that change. And I need to align myself with women and men who want the same.
Here’s my nouveau Ode:
I will no longer engage or follow low-vibrational people online.
I will no longer take advice from the sarcastic business coaches, the ones you use scare-tactics, are constantly preaching, and generalizing that online business can ONLY BE DONE ONE WAY.
I now, listen, follow & engage with high vibrational people. The one’s who lift you up. The one’s who encourage you, believe in you and genuinely want to see you succeed.
The one’s who make you feel empowered, and not inferieur because you don’t know everything.
I now, listen, follow & engage with people who have an insanely POSITIVE energy.
We’re all just trying to run our businesses and live the life of our dreams. Let’s spread some positive energy around it!
