How Embracing Uncertainty Can Help You Succeed

Embracing uncertainty doesn’t mean that you can’t make plans, or create a strategy, or envision a dream outcome. It simply means that what we make, create and envision is set within an atmosphere of unpredictability.

When you allow yourself to embrace uncertainty, you welcome success. You’re making yourself comfortable with the innate discomfort of risk taking. As an entrepreneur, you are taking a risk by choosing to believe in your abilities to provide for yourselves and your family. The first question I want you to ask is this: How has the fear of the unknown stopped you from taking certain actions? And on the flipside, how can you completely give up the security of the known?

In this video, we talked about:

  • Why embracing uncertainty is such a major part of my life right now,
  • 3 ways to practice embracing uncertainty, and
  • What I’ve got in store for you (only in the group!) over the next few months.

Focused Intention + Action = Magic

In today’s video recap, I’m sharing the ways in which I have been able to avoid distractions, to stay focused and to align my actions to my big-picture vision and current goals. 

Now, I’m not entirely sure why I felt inspired to share this. I know that this is a topic that has been relevant for the past year and a half. It’s actually a topic that comes up over and over again for entrepreneurs in general. But lately, I’ve personally felt distracted, and not only that, overwhelmed by the distractions. You’d think after a year of distractions I’d be over it by now. But the truth is, I still have to think of ways to bring myself back to balance and inner peace.

In this video, we talked about:

  • The current state of affairs in my life and business,
  • Why I’ve been feeling “distracted” lately,
  • What I shared on a podcast recently about inner peace and balance,
  • Why those answers are somewhat commonplace given the state of the world,
  • Deeper, wiser answers I channeled just for you, and
  • 3 questions you can ask yourself based on each extra tip.

How to Restructure Your Strategy: 12 Questions to Ask Yourself

Everyone here knows (or at least should know) that I’m pregnant and we are approaching the due date very quickly – in a little over a month to be exact, and while I’m very excited, I do plan to restructure my schedule and strategy to allow for the time that I’d like to be spending with my newborn. 

As an entrepreneur, I’m not given maternity leave. Interestingly, this is something I’m very much thankful for. Instead, I get to decide when I work and when I don’t work throughout my entire career. Luckily, I’ve restructured my business model to allow for me to do less and receive more via my e-learning model. Having my first son really made me tap into the desired life that I want and it’s one where I get lots of freedom – financially, professionally, creatively and fortunately, I’ve designed my business to follow those desires. 

This really comes down to the ability to determine next steps based on the results you’ve experienced from being consistent. I love talking about consistency because I’m really freaking good at it, but I also know when to stop something that just isn’t working. This is the growth factor that must play into the consistency factor. 

There is no sense in continuing certain patterns, activities, and routines if you’re not actively experiencing results. There’s a constant and continuous review and upleveling and improvement process that needs to be created if you’re going to make this commitment of being consistent. 

This is where regular reviews and reflection time comes into place. These can be on a monthly or quarterly basis, but the goal is to identify what is working, what isn’t working, and how you can leverage this knowledge into bigger and better results. For me, based on my current life circumstances, I want to achieve more by doing less. This may sound like an impossible endeavor to some, but for me, I’m ready to tackle it head on. 

Today, I’m going to invite you into what that new strategy will look like for me, as I enter into the next chapter of my life as a mom of two little ones. I will also provide you with some questions you can consider for your own quarterly review session.

In this video, we talked about:

  • Why I’m restructuring my business building strategy,
  • The purpose of reviews and reflection time,
  • The consistency factor and growth factor in business building,
  • 3 ways I’m doing less to achieve more,
  • My suggested structure of a quarterly review session, and
  • 12 questions to ask yourself during your next review session.

3 Ways to Shift Your Perspective When Business Gets Challenging

Today I’m going to be talking about 3 ways you can change your perspective when business gets challenging. One of the ways is actually something I recently shared in my social media, but I’m going to recap that one as well so you get all three. 

So first things first, I want you to think about this: When things get challenging in business, what do you do?

When you feel uninspired, or when things feel out of control, or when you find yourself disappointed in an outcome, what do you do? 

The unevolved version of me let the challenging circumstances take over me. They would take over my entire mind and body like a virus. I’d ruminate. I’d lose sleep. I’d feel total despair. I’d cry and get angry. I’d pray and ask God why I was being punished. Somehow I’d think it was all my fault and I’d make myself feel smaller and smaller. I was the quintessential victim. Everything was happening to me, and I had no way out or around it. 

But luckily Christina has evolved. I’m no longer the person I was so many years ago. I’m not even the person I was a month ago. 

Here are a few ways that you shift your perspective (and most likely your perception) when things get challenging in business or in life. 

In this video, we talked about:

  • 3 ways to shift your perspective when things get challenging,
  • Why challenging scenarios and circumstances are inevitable in business building, 
  • How this all comes down to the quality of perseverance, 
  • A dream I had about perseverance and what it means for you 
  • What we do have control over when it comes to facing challenges, and
  • Questions to ask yourself for some self-reflection!

Video - 3 Habits to Make Content Planning Easier

Video: 3 Habits to Make Content Planning Easier

Your content isn’t something that is “out there” that needs to be found. It’s not in the feeds you scroll, the books you read, the case studies you pull. It’s not outside of you. It’s within you.

What do I mean by that? I’m referring to your stories, your perspective, your opinions, your own transformation. Share them all! And the following three habits will help you do just that.

Number 1: It’s okay to be repetitive. 

Here’s the thing – we want to be repetitive when we market ourselves. We want to be known for something. We want to state again and again and again what truly matters to us about what we do and why we do it because that is the only thing that will bring people in and bring them back for more. 

Number 2: Stick to what you know. 

It’s so easy to get caught up in thinking that we have to come up with incredibly creative or complex or long-form content every time we post something and that is simply not true. If you are doing what you are truly meant to be doing and have a fierce passion for it, you have a never-ending library of things to talk about. Your opinions don’t expire. You won’t run out of words one day. Your perspective is always fresh. Your story is magical.

Number 3: Be vulnerable.

Experts start off at ground zero too. Every single entrepreneur has their highs and lows. You want to share both. Gone are the days of the highlight reel. People want to see you actually be real. They want to see how you have overcome the obstacles on your path so that they may have hope that they can overcome theirs. They want to see you that you have struggles and challenges too, because that makes you human. That makes you relatable. But your higher perspective and passion in the face of those obstacles will make you their hero. Don’t you want to be seen as a hero? Start by showing up as one.

In this video, we talked about:

  • The wake-up call I had about messaging and my content strategy,
  • The type of content that actually matters, 
  • 3 habits to keep it easy, 
  • The one rule you need to remember about marketing, 
  • What to ask yourself when you get stumped on content planning, and
  • A few prompts to get you started!

3 Ways to Embody Your Dream Business

In this live training, I dive into the 3 ways you can begin to embody that desired life of yours. 

Just a caveat though: I’m not necessarily referring to embodiment as manifestation. The word manifest and the way that it is talked about today isn’t necessarily something that I vibe with. I believe that we can manifest things into our lives, but I don’t believe that we have full control and I don’t believe that we call in anything that would be perceived as bad or hurtful. I believe in soul evolution, that we move through feelings and experiences to grow, and I also believe in the four levels of consciousness. 

The four levels are also something I talk about within my signature program. The four levels are “to me,” “by me,” “through me,” and “as me.” I move a bit through the consciousness of “by me” which would be considered manifesting but I believe I move more “through me” because I see myself and my purpose as more fluid and universal as a co-creator. “As me” sounds like pure enlightenment, but I have experienced a few moments of that and it’s ethereal. 

Believe it or not, your success all begins with you. No plan, strategy, formula or next steps will get you where you want to be without you at the helm, fully invested in the vision. 

So let’s get started!

In this video, we talked about:

  • The one word that gets me through dark, challenging times,
  • The simple answer I got to a big question I had during my meditation this week,
  • 3 ways you can embody the ideal business of yours, 
  • How The L.I.F.E. Method makes embodiment possible,
  • Why your success all begins with you, and
  • How embodiment helps you make decisions from a place of trust.

Video: How to Break Through the Creativity Block

I’m a big fan of talking about all things related to creativity and expression. 

One resource that has really inspired me about creativity and that I regularly turn back to is a book called Big Magic by Elizabeth Gilbert. It’s a collection of stories, experiences and perspectives of what creativity is, how it works, how it finds us and how we can work with it. I refer back to it again and again for inspiration. 

Another resource that has reframed my thinking about creativity is the following quote: “Not all storms come to disrupt your life, some come to clear your path.” For me, creativity lies at the root of this quote. Creativity isn’t necessarily the storm itself, it’s your interpretation of it. 

And right now, I think a lot of people are distracted by some sort of storm. 

In this video, we talked about:

  • A few resources about creativity that I find inspirational,
  • The current state of affairs with many business owners I know, 
  • What I’m doing now that is radically different from what I’ve done in the past, 
  • The realizations that I’ve made in my most recent review with The L.I.F.E. Method,
  • What the method can do for you in terms of creativity, and
  • Reminder about a few special offerings I have for my birthday month this June!
