For me the answer is delegate. Passing all of the tasks which need to get done but cause me to sweat, and curse under my breath over to someone who loves to do them.
Years ago I met a woman at a networking event who had a business cleaning homes. She told me, “Esther cleaning gives me a full body orgasm.” I hired her on the spot. Hey why deprive the woman of an orgasm? And I freed up my time to do what I truly love to do, help people expand into the fullness of their themselves.
The number one task I delegate is web work. I used to struggle with making changes to my HTML and word-press sites. Now I have virtual member of my “team” who gets SOS emails from me when things get too technical and frustrating. Maybe for you it’s accounting, marketing and/or copy-writing that you need to hand over.
Just imagine for a moment that you did delegate that nasty task, would your business expand or contract? Would stress be released from your body and life or would there be more?
Most of you will answer in the positive feeling the joy and relief of delegating. In fact you are revelling in the thought of doing what you love to do in your business: write, create, work one on one with people without getting bogged down in other less fun details.
And there will be those who will ask themselves the same questions and will sweat more perfusely at the thought of delegating. Typically I find in my private practice that the issues which trigger this reaction are:
• A lack consciousness; “ I don’t have the money to hire someone.”
• Control; “No one can do it like me,” or “I don’t want someone else’s fingers in my business.”
• Issues of pride, not wanting to ask for help and a superwoman, “I can do it all,” mentality.
All of these triggers are anchored in negative and limiting beliefs held in the mind. Free yourself from those limitations and embrace the concept of delegation. The result will be more fun in your business and in that energy of fun your business can’t help but flourish and expand.
