This is in the Top Three list of phrases I hear the most from others. I would argue that our breakthrough is waiting for us to be ready for it!
In order to welcome in something new, you need to make some adjustments to what you currently are doing.
Here is a 20 minute video training on the 10 essential areas you need to prepare to get your breakthrough in life or business.
The 10 Essentials
Take the time to find space and recharge. Naps are always great! But, rest is about taking the time to find some peace and reconnect with you.
STRETCH YOURSELF & PRESS IN
Get out of your box! Press in to what is coming with anticipation. Your comfort zone will never accommodate a breakthrough.
OPEN YOUR MIND & CHANGE PERSPECTIVES
You must stop doing what you normally do. Get fresh insight. Look for a new viewpoint and open your mind so that you can find clarity and see in new ways.
LISTEN & BE COACHABLE
Be open to new insight and feedback from others. Remaining coachable will lead to success.
DO SOMETHING CREATIVE
Read a good book. Create art or music. Go on an adventure and explore. You’ll gain fresh perspectives and feel recharged!
STOP TRYING TO FIT IN
Again, you are wanting to create and experience something new. Stay in alignment with who you are so that you experience a real change.
RELEASE THE HYPE
Let go of the dogma and boundaries that may be holding you back from moving forward. Let go of finite set of perceptions so you can expand your borders. Create places of hope and release the negatives.
CLEAN HOUSE & CHANGE PLAYGROUNDS
Some folks in our circles are only intended for a season. Take a look at who you surround yourself and identify if anyone is limiting you from moving into the next phase of your journey.
GET OUT OF YOUR RUTS
[Tweet “A rut is a coffin with the ends kicked out. “]
Change how and what you do. You can’t create a space for a breakthrough if you are stuck in your habits. The way you’ve always done it isn’t working. Time for a change!
MEET YOURSELF WHERE YOU ARE TODAY
Let go of the expectations you currently hold that tell you you should be further down the road or doing something differently. It is a journey. It will never look like you think it should look. Meet yourself where you are today!
Your takeaway here is to stop your “doing” and start the “being”. Be you and implement the essentials. You will begin to see things shift rapidly and that breakthrough will show up!
Which of these areas has been a game changer for you?

It is one of the loveliest times of year right now. Fall. Certainly one of my favorite seasons because of the colors and the cooler air.
We all experience seasons in our lives. Sometimes the seasons rage like an unyielding winter – deep, dark and cold. Others seem to fly by too quickly like a short spring launching into a hot summer.
But, what is your season telling you? Are you listening?
If you are enduring this current season, then you are doing it all wrong.
Every season or phase or whatever you want to call it in our lives has purpose — if you look and listen. Begin by slowing your mind down and observing what is taking place right now. Then assess what that really means to you – what is the truth of your discovery.
Let’s shift perspectives for a minute and reshape your season.
My season says that I am:
Stading Still. > Are you being stubborn and refusing to open yourself to growth? Or, perhaps you need this time of peace and rest so that you can find clarity for the next step coming.
Scooby-dooing. > Folks love to run in place. If I look busy enough, maybe you’ll think I’m doing okay. Stop. Slow down. Be still. Be open and stretch your horizons around you so you can grow into what is waiting for you on the other side of this season.
Being unproductive or unfocused. > How else are you spending your time? Are you avoiding something important because it is uncomfortable? Are you investing your time and energy into something that isn’t in your wheelhouse (genius zone)? Or, is it that you are giving time and energy into something that you’ve deemed as unproductive yet is perhaps creative and nourishing to your soul? You may just need to break out of a rut to find yourself!
Too busy. > I constantly battle my inner work-a-holic. But, let’s talk about busyness for the sake of just being busy. Busyness eats at your soul. It is a distraction that keeps you from enjoying life. You miss out on LIFE! Think Walking Dead….essentially, I’m calling you a zombie. Snap out of it and reengage with humanity.
Alone. > Determine if you are truly isolated or if you are lacking in connections. We are not designed to do life alone. As an introvert, you will need alone time but that isn’t what I mean here. If you are isolating yourself, be intentional about getting out more. Build relationships, bonds and deeper connections with people you trust and respect. Look for genuine, transparent and vulnerable places you can interact with others in. It isn’t as hard as you think….i.e. comment in this post and we will connect!
Happy and Content. > Yay! Enjoy this place of gratitude. Refresh yourself, renew and restore. Enjoy the building up of your spirit and energy.
Hopeful. > Hope. We should always have hope. This season is a beautiful one. One filled with light even in the darkness. Peace despite the storms. It is that never ending posture of knowing that every season ends to give birth to a new. All things work to good.
Remember too that you’ll need to separate out what you are HEARING about your season from what you are FEELING about your season. Two totally different things. Our feelings can be master manipulators and send us in the wrong direction frequently. You don’t have to [feel] agree with or like your season. You should however participate in what is growing inside of you and for you.
Lastly, a good friend of mine once said that when we are growing, learning and transitioning to new ways of thinking and being, that we will experience a seasonal storm. For instance here in Tennessee when Spring is trying its best to break through, Winter says oh no! We go from 70* days back down to 45*; flowers blooming to a sudden layer of ice; cool weather to tornadoes.
And, the same war wages within us. As you move through this season of your life you’ll experience a stormy transition as you let go of one phase to enter another. Participate with it by being self-aware.
Life is a mosaic of these seasons, people. Enjoy the beauty of them instead of focusing solely on a singular moment.
