Investing in Yourself to Catalyze Your Business Success
If you are working to build your Reiki practice or kickstart your business, you know that before you can have a full time practice, you have to learn the tricks of the trade. You need your Reiki certification before you can start practicing, and that certification is an investment.
For many business owners, that initial investment is considered the most important. Once we get our business or practice started, we tend to let that wave of relief wash away our desire to continue to learn, grow, and improve.
While those first steps are incredibly important, they don't signify the end of your days as a student. In order to continue to grow and thrive, investing in yourself needs to be an ongoing process.
When you invest in yourself, you invest in a change. The change you work towards in yourself will ultimately lead to a transformation in your business. Why?
Because your external reality is ultimately a reflection of your internal environment. If you are holding on to limiting beliefs, old stories, or subconscious anxieties, they will manifest in your business. The more blocks you have within, the more road blocks you will experience in your business.
Investing in yourself isn't about finding a twenty dollar course on Udemy. It's about really diving deep and identifying what will bring you to the greatest change in yourself and the greatest benefit for your business. When you do the work to set yourself free from everything that is holding you back, you give your business the permission to grow and succeed.
When you invest in yourself, you shift your identity. As you learn new things, and release past beliefs or behaviors, you open yourself up to a new perspective and a new identity. The more you can fully embody your desired identity (i.e, a six figure Reiki practitioner), the more that identity will be reflected in your business and your life.
The identity you're holding on to now is a reflection of the stories you've been told or lessons you've learned in the past. Whether these stories come from your childhood or adult life, they aren't always beneficial. Limiting beliefs are called limiting for a reason- they hold you back in some way.
If something is holding you back, it will affect how you show up for yourself and for your business. Naturally, when you do the work to release yourself from these beliefs, that freedom will be reflected in your business. This isn't about manipulating your reality until it is the perfect image you have in your head. This is about cleaning up your interior energy and beliefs so that your reality has no choice but to reflect your passion, joy, and truth back to you.
When we can stop playing small and start embodying exactly who we need to become, everything starts to flow and come to you, because you are telling the Universe, 'I'm here. I'm present. I'm ready, and I know my value. Let's do this.'
It's your choice. Will you stay in your current identity, or will you invest in yourself and welcome in the opportunity to expand, evolve, and succeed?
