”The most controversial thing I ever did, was to stick around”

By Jennifer Hall | Uncategorized

”The most controversial thing I ever did, was to stick around” -Madonna’s acceptance speech for Woman of the Year

The whole speech was quite frankly ‘pure truth’, hard-hitting and inspiring!

Madonna, for me, symbolises standing in your own truth unapologetically!

If you haven’t watched the speech yet, I suggest you watch it, I’ll add the link at the bottom of this email.

​​That quote about sticking around, really spoke to me today.

I am currently going through an incredible up-level where by I’m stating an opinion, or put more correctly, I’m stating what I know to be truth, knowing full well there will be others out there who will point blank disagree with me.

To those people I would say ‘take the wool out of your ears’. That wool is not serving you! It will ALWAYS be the case that unless you’re ready to hear what I have to say, it will fall upon deaf ears and/or defensive ears.

But stating your opinion is harder than you first think! It’s so easy to backtrack to try and fit in with others opinions because as humans, we crave connection, and to stand out from the crowd, alienates us.

But do you know what hurts us more as business women? Saying something that no one cares about!

We will never connect with everyone! FACT! But we will connect with those who resonate with our message, who when they hear your words will resonate truth throughout their being!

​​Who are you trying to connect with?​​​​​​​ Those who disagree with you or those that love you for what you stand for?

As coaches we’d be idiots to think we had all the answers, BUT we have to stand up and help people with what we KNOW to be truth, within our zones of genius, that we KNOW will ​​get our clients to where they need to be!

Our clients need us to be strong, they need us to lead and they need us to stand in our own truth unapologetically ​​and stick around! Do not shrink back, step forward and walk your walk PROUD! Shine your amazingness and don’t let the fear of others hold you back! Don’t let your own fear of being wrong hold you back… you know what you know and you don’t know what you don’t know as my Dad used to say!

Here’s what I say (all the time)… Say what you want to say with confidence, knowing that you will always be wrong in someone else’s eyes! But to those people you resonate with, you will be inspiring and leading from the front on a mi​​ssion to make a difference to the world! That right there, is every reason for you to say your stuff, stick around unapologetically and do what you were born to do! That right there is inspiring, admirable and courageous and in complete integrity with you!

Watch this incredible woman share her words of inspiration…

The problem is not the problem, the problem is your attitude about the problem!

By Jennifer Hall | Uncategorized

( I do love Jack! ♥)

I love this saying even more as it is the cure to you all your problems!

Firstly stop and take a look at where you are in your coaching business.


Perceived problem #1 – is there something that you’re feeling stuck on that is stopping you progressing?

Attitude Reality – When we focus all our energy on the ‘problem’ we can become caught up in the struggle.

– Ask yourself, what am I trying to achieve, what is the end goal?

Is there someone/somewhere appropriate I can ask to get help with solving this?

Another tip is to find some distance on the problem, go for a walk, do something fun and come back with a fresh mind and perhaps a new perspective.

One more question you might want to ask yourself, is this ‘problem’ merely a beautiful procrastination/excuse not to progress? If so why?

Perceived problem #2 – is it that you’re ‘doing’ but not getting anywhere fast? This is almost more dangerous than the first.

Attitude Reality – We kid ourselves that we are progressing but actually we are just playing without purpose.

– Again, Ask yourself, what am I trying to achieve, what is the end goal?

Check your task list, is everything you’re doing making your boat go faster? Or are they distractions from what you should actually be doing? e.g. fiddling with your website to make it look pretty when you should be focusing on the money making tasks or the clarity issue on your niche!

Have you set goals? Do you have a plan of action with tasks to be delegated, scrapped or scheduled in to make sure they get done?

Do you need someones help to sit down with you and work out your execution plan? If so, go find one instead of using the lack of help as an excuse for not progressing.

Are you perfectly clear on your niche and ideal client? If you’re not crystal clear, all these actions you are taking is a TOTAL WASTE of time… stop… get clear! Don’t know how? See problem #1.

What’s your ‘problem’? and what’s your attitude to the problem? i.e. what is stopping you from solving it?

QUIT WHINING!

By Jennifer Hall | Uncategorized

Bollocks! I was just in the mood to get my head down and then the shit hit the fan and then I couldn’t get ‘it’ done!’

SHUT UP!

Seriously, no one cares!

I love you, I really do, but unless I tell you the truth you are NEVER going to make it as a coach!

Quit complaining and quit blaming others and other things for it not happening! YOU are in charge of your success, YOU are responsible for your life and what happens in it!

Your clients don’t give a shit about how you couldn’t do it! They care about how the shit hit the fan and YOU DID IT ANYWAY!

The moment you pin your hopes and dreams on someone or something else is the moment you give away all your control and all your power!

Take responsibility for your life, your entire life. For everything that’s happened to you so far and for your current situation!

Why? Because YOU ARE! and also, because it puts you back in the driver’s seat  to control your own life and to create your own reality!

You DO however have to have help to be successful , you CANNOT do it alone! We know everything we do because we’ve learned it from others, BUT does that mean we have to blame everyone else for what’s happening in our life? NOOO! If we made a million $ tomorrow, would we give all the credit to someone else? NO!!!!

You are responsible for your own success, no one else! Anyone who helps is just an added bonus you should be forever grateful for! Even the bad stuff, be grateful for the lesson, be grateful for the strength you drew from it and let that shit go!
