Shush the Should-Monster!
Say “Goodbye” to What no Longer Serves You and “Hello” to What Does!
CREATE A LIVING & MIDDLE-LIFE YOU LOVE.
Several years ago I hung up my super woman cape, sold my nutrition and wellness center, gathered up my 35+ years of professional experience (both the trials and the triumphs), and began mentoring women whose good intentions of being difference-makers and creating business success have led to overwhelm, fatigue and a yearning to regain that sense of enthusiasm from days past.
When meeting with clients, I often feel I’m meeting with a version of myself. I’ve been where you are. It’s overwhelming and exhausting to show up every day and accomplish and juggle all that you do – always with a smile on your face, no matter what you’re feeling inside – while trying to navigate your own emotional landscape and upholding the vision of how society says you “should be.” Well, I’m here to tell them – “There is an easier way!”
Know This: You’re not Alone!
These are comments I heard from women I interviewed all over the world. What can you add to this list?
- You find yourself wishing for more hours in the day, and overwhelm and anxiousness are common feelings.
- You are challenged with feelings of “not enough,” self-doubt and self-comparison.
- You are a go-getter – but this is coming at a cost to your own well-being.
- You are cancelling dates with friends because you’re just too burned out.
- You don’t have the energy or motivation that you used to.
- You’re exhausted, but have a hard time sleeping.
- You are seen as a confident, has-it-all-together woman, but how you feel inside is a different story.
SOMETHING HAS TO CHANGE – BUT HOW?
Especially when life still needs to go on, and YOU need to make things happen.
The answer, I believe, is clarity. Whether leadership is your goal, or a desire to be at ease with yourself – every woman who is cultivating a strong foundation to stand on, with a clear sense of what is most important, becomes part of the fabric that affects change.
Which of the following do you wish for?
- You give yourself the time and attention you need to recharge and sustain yourself.
- You melt self-doubt and feelings of “not enough.”
- You banish the tendency to overcommit.
- You accomplish more of what matters, with ease.
- Possibility and curiosity lead the way for you, instead of “shoulds.”
- You enjoy more energy – for your “me time” and for the work that’s so important to you.
- You are more engaged and present.
Clarity emerges when you let go of the clutter of limiting beliefs, ineffective actions, unmet needs, and the “shoulds” – all of which lock you in perpetual overwhelm. By learning how to disentangle yourself, you can tap into your clear sense of purpose to accomplish more with ease.
As you open your eyes to the societal legacy that indoctrinates women to believe saying “no” to others and “yes” to yourself is selfish, you begin to liberate yourself from the stranglehold of this cultural assumption and begin to focus on the difference you’re called to make.
It’s easier than you think. You can find a rhythm that’s perfectly you – accomplishing what matters most, nurturing yourself, and advancing your dreams, your business, and your career… with joy!
HERE’S WHAT WOMEN ARE SAYING
~Barbara Huson [Stanny], The Leading Authority of Women and Money.
“I have known Suzy for over 15 years and have witnessed her overcome her own busyness and transform her life. She is an inspiration to so many, a gifted teacher and mentor. I have gained so much personally from her deep wisdom and insightful mentoring. She truly walks her talk. I am honored to call her a dear friend and excited about the important work she is doing to help women do less and live more! If you have a chance to work with Suzy, just do it!”
~Julie H., Face of Grace Skincare, Port Townsend, WA
“My business was booked solid but I was taxed and overwhelmed. My energy wasn’t on point–I felt it and my clients felt it, too. It came to a head when my family and I were planning a big trip to Europe, and I was overdoing it–trying to make money and work extra hours, so I could stay ahead. My fatigue was catching up with me, and my sleep was worse. Suzy showed me ways to lighten my load and I actually created more abundance that way. I came out ahead financially. And even today, I’m healthy, on point, present, and I’m not a crabby mom. I work less hours and now have a wait list of clients. When you talk with Suzy you don’t feel like you’re being judged and that for me is big. She can deal with such a variety of people, and she’s very open and approachable, and she is a good soul. I trust her completely.”
~Heather D., Hastings Development LLC, Port Townsend, WA
“I work so hard to always make sure “I’m doing everything I possibly can”; to always say “Yes” to an opportunity to help; and to make sure that every spare blank on my calendar is filled, as a sign that I’m fulfilling my potential. But instead, I end up killing my ability to access my own highest capacity for good, because I have nothing left to give. Even a simple cup of tea with Suzy can be life-changing. It was on just such an occasion that the wisdom flowing across the cafe table from Suzy finally allowed me to begin to see how my habits are hindering me”.
