Do You Believe That You Deserve It?

I am one of those 'weirdos' who believes that what you put out there in the universe (some may call it wishing on a star ...) for what you want to happen can and will happen. How many eyes are rolling???  If I want something badly enough or even just a little bit I will practice thinking about it, talking about it, and telling myself that 'one day it will happen' ... and then it does!

Now, I'm not talking about petty things like:  I want to own a mansion that someone gives to me out of the blue ... or I want a Range Rover to appear in my driveway fully paid for ... or I want it to start raining cupcakes (but omg, could it??) ... I'm talking about things like: 

  1. I want to be asked to speak at a workshop
  2. I want this specific company to reach out to me about their website
  3. I want The Editor's Touch blog to be one of the most popular business advice blogs within 5 years

Things that are attainable, but not easy to achieve ... so I 'self talk' myself or coach myself by setting my mind to making them happen ... and what ends up happening is that I naturally start making moves to support my self-talk.  But now here's the really weird part ...

WHEN IT HAPPENS I DON'T BELIEVE IT

I spend all that time 'self talking' that it can and will happen and doing the work to support it ... and then it does and I'm all:  

I CAN'T BELIEVE THIS COMPANY WOULD CONSIDER HIRING ME TO DESIGN THEIR WEBSITE!!!

Why do I do that?  Why do we as business owners do that??  Do we not believe we deserve it?  There is a saying out there that I think we have all heard:

Entrepreneurs are willing to work 80 hours a week to avoid working 40 hours a week | The Editor's Touch

We work our asses off!!  You!!  You there reading this:  YOU WORK YOUR ASS OFF!!!  When something amazing happens you do deserve it and so do I.  We need to start:

BELIEVING MORE AND DOUBTING LESS

Yesterday a company who I have been 'sending vibes to' in the privacy of my own world (lol) reached out to me.  I saw the email and I did one of those 'double, triple, quadruple' takes ... rubbed my eyes ... did the weird scrunched up face thing ... I literally could not believe they had reached out to me.  I want to turn that around and start believing it.  Not in a 'cocky asshole' way ... but in a:  'sh*t!!!  I've worked so hard and sacrificed so much and it's paying off' way.

Let's all do it together :)

Happy holidays!

XO~ Heather
