"Notice the simplicity of truth and the limitations that complexity places on your ability to see what is of value" -Diana Cooper
How do I explain my hesitation for scaling my business? Most of us want to grow right? But I haven't - I've been avoiding it. Sure, I had a vision, but for the past 6 months it's all felt so complicated. I don't do complicated. I avoid complications.
So I fell into a void.
A place where all action felt wrong and forced and...well, just wrong.
I fought the void.
I brought flood lights to light the path.
I laid out my machete.
I got ready for battle.
And sometimes I'd get glimpses of the light but mostly I sat in the dark waiting.
It's not my superpower.
What I learned was a new level of surrender, and somewhere in that surrender my vision changed. I was trying to force the vision that made sense on the path I had been blazing. But that wasn't really IT.
See the piece I missed was that nothing I expected turned into what is really meant to be happening. There were things put into motion that I had no idea about. Things that, once I surrendered, suddenly appeared. Doors that I hadn't anticipated opened. Doors I had been trying to unlock disappeared completely. And other doors got a new paint job.
The most interesting piece though was that my idea of bigger and better being complicated also fell away.
Once I allowed myself to see where the path was going (instead of forcing the jungle to conform to me), it became exceedingly simple. To bring on a new team of awesomeness to do even more for me than I've ever dreamed of became the next easiest thing to do.
I had to learn to expand my business in a way that feels like it's in alignment with ME - I had to go small to go big.
The void allowed those things I was cooking to fully marinate.
So I'm allowing the simplicity of my next level of business to come forward. I'm marveling in the miracles that are being presented to me. And I'm rolling around in the possibilities that in my heart feel new and foreign yet comforting and familiar at the same time... a coming home to me.
So I'll leave you with this today>>>
If it feels complicated, you're missing the point.
You're not seeing what's really of value.
The truth is in the simpleness, is in the clarity, is in the ease.
It's in the surrender to what IS so that what can be can BE.
