Entrepreneur Mindset

Designing Your Life: Why You MUST Tune into Who You Truly Are This Year (and Every Year)

I’m here at the Wish Bridge in LA where lots of people go to make wishes and dream about who they hope to be and what they hope to accomplish in the New Year.

While I know that hope is not a strategy, it is important to hope and wish and dream and aspire to be something more. It’s the human condition — to want to be more and feel more and do more and achieve more.

Years ago, I was part of a Mastermind group and one of the exercises was for the group to give an intention for each individual member to live into.

The intention they gave me was “Marisa is risking it all.”

And I kid you not, within 3 months I had left a relationship of 10 years, I had left my job, and I’d become a full-time entrepreneur. I was making it happen.

Then, the group gave me another intention. This time it was, “Marisa is experiencing the design of her life unfold” and here’s the interesting thing…

Even though I got that intention 8 or 9 years ago, it’s still relevant for me. To this day, I’ve never outgrown the intention of “experiencing the design of my life unfold.”

I find that it’s actually a practice of awareness, of feeling not just what I think I should do or what other people are telling me to do or what makes logical sense but to really tune in to where I’m being led and where I’m being called and what that deeper level of truth in the design for my life actually is.

And when I slow down long enough to listen to that inner voice, it often tells me things that are surprising, things that I never would have imagined for myself, things that take me to a whole other plane of experience and of being in this world.

So, as I sat on the Wish Bridge, what I wished for wasn’t something “out there,” what I wished for was to go within. I want to tune in and connect with what’s hoping to emerge and not get waylaid by this big brain that I have between my ears! The gigantic organ that’s always telling me to do so many things and telling me what my life and business should look like instead of allowing things to just be what they want to be, and what they’re evolving into.

I often tell my students — especially those in the early stages of business, trying to find their niche — that sometimes your niche finds you as much as you find it.

It’s about being willing to listen to the clues that are always there saying, “There’s something here you should be paying attention to.”

So what I’m wishing for on this Wish Bridge today is not more money or more clients but it’s more awareness of the design of my life that’s currently unfolding.

So, let me know in the comments…

What are you wishing for? What’s true for you right now? What’s unfolding that you may not have admitted to yourself is unfolding? What is it that you want to do with your life and business?

What is it that you are being called to do?

Not necessarily what you should do, not necessarily what other people have told you to do but what YOU want to strive for and lean into…

So, here’s looking at you and here’s to wishing for the journey that you’re already on because if there’s one thing that I know from mentoring entrepreneurs over the last 8 years, it’s this…

Every single person has their own personal entrepreneurial journey and one of the biggest secrets of success is NOT trying to be on someone else’s path — not trying to be on anybody else’s journey — but to be on your journey, your path, fully, wholly and completely.

    To succeed but first how to find the right people, it is nice to want people but how do you do it, where to search without a list?

      Hey Michele! One of the most basic things you can do to grow your tribe is to start talking to people. In Experience Product Masterclass, you learned about Chatterboxing — that’s something you can do anytime, anywhere. Once you start talking to people about what you’re up to, doors start opening and the right people find their way to you… and you to them 🙂
