How to Ride the Waves of a Mid-Life Catharsis

Hello Beautiful Soul,

I am working with a friend and new client who is at a place in life (mid-life CATHARSIS time!) where he knows he needs to exit from current career (he has known it for a while), BUT it pays well and he has a family to take care of and so he feels paralyzed and burned out.

Sound familiar? It does to me. I was just there a few years ago. And I had an amazing business and life at the time. BUT still, I had been pushing so hard for two decades, I needed rest. 

So what is a grown ass adult with a mortgage to do in this situation?

Here is what I did and what I told him as well as other countless clients over the years. 

Hopefully it will help you when your mid-life catharsis arives. 

Be Grateful for This Time of Confusion

You are definitely in a soul searching place. Congratulations on listenting to the voice inside you that said it is time for a change.

Some questions to ask yourself to figure out what is next are: 

 – What did you love to do when you were little? 

 – What would you do every day for happiness if money were not in the equation?

But Money Is Part of the Equation

Now, I know money is part of the equation, but we all have to figure out our happy place of passion first and then we can go about monetizing it into a business or even doing the passion in someone else’s business.

Think of This as a Time for Realignment Now That You are Older and Wiser

Most of us have been brought up to put the money first in our lives. 

We believe often very consciously that making money at a passion isn’t possible.

This belief blocks people and leaves them feeling paralyzed and burned out. 

The first step I suggest for people is having a “in the meantime” job that you can handle that allows you more freedom than current job and still pays the basic bills.

This type of job is perfectly flawed while you figure it all out and research your options.

Option 1, working for another in new passion or Option 2, starting a business in the new passion.

Either way, good look and let the catharsis begin!

Creatively Yours,

Free Opportunity to Be A Case Study In My Next Book Plus More Opportunities

Hello Beautiful Souls,

Even though I am officially in summer mode, there is still a lot going on under the umbrella of ShereeKeys.com.

(By the way and totally off topic… did you see we have a real live office these days?!)

Anyway, the reason I am writing is because I wanted you to know about a few opportunities that are happening right now that I wanted you to know about. 

1) If you are running an association, network, institute, or academy… I am gearing up to interview YOU for a case study for my next book. Email info@shereekeys.com with any questions you have about the book and to let us know you are interested. Being in this book will be huge for your business because thousands and thousands of people download my free PDF versions of my books each year and purchase them in print on Amazon. This book will be in PDF format for free at my company, Network Building Academy and then at Amazon too.

and

2) Starting very soon (probably by end of July), I will be closing down my Sweet Spot Coaching Program forever. Check out both of the current programs at the link below. I only have room for a few more clients right now in my schedule. There will be a big launch in Fall for the Quantum Leap Program since most of my current clients will transition into another program with me or move on to coach with another mentor, etc. at the end of the year. Here are the details in case you want to take advantage of the Sweet Spot opportunity. AND it really is a Sweet Spot opportunity as I was only able to offer it this one year. It is affordable for everyone that is building a bus iness and I am really amazing at what I do – that is the Sweet Spot for sure! I change peoples lives forever. And I am grateful for my gifts of course. But I do need to change things up again for next year because of new opportunities coming my way. And I only coach/consult one day a week so there is always limited space in my schedule for real live people. I tend to have anywhere from 12 – 20 high-level clients a year. If you interested in the details, applications are here:  http://www.shereekeys.com/coaching (Feel free to send my assistant an email to set up a 20 minute “get to know each other” meeting if you would like. You must send in the application first though so I can learn about you before we get on phone.)

Take care and talk soon,

LOVE SHEREE

The Three M’s and Why No One Talks About One of Them

With all my customers/clients, I focus on teaching them/supporting them with the three M’s.

Mindsets, Marketing, and Models (as in Business Models).

You see a lot out there on Mindsets and Marketing but hardly anything on Business Models.

People just naturally gravitate to the service-based business model because they don’t know any better or they aren’t exposed to anything else. And honestly the service-based business model is the kiss of death as an entrepreneur.

It is just creating JOB where you now work more hours without health insurance!!

I don’t see a lot of people being honest about this with their clients, perhaps because some of them haven’t even realized it themselves.

If you want to learn more or see how my company helps people in these areas, here are some free books and paid programs and services below that hold the space for you should you want to learn more about the M’s or even delegate them.

 

1) MODELS Free book on Membership Based-Biz Model (www.networkbuildingacademy.com/blog -it is in the header)… there is also a full 30 Video program that teaches the three M’s and so so much more here.

2) MINDSETS If you struggle with your mindsets (who doesn’t? And you can’t afford a coach this year, then take my very popular Mindset course. www.shereekeys.com/mmmm-ecourse

3) MARKETING If you already have a business but for love of all that is business, you can’t consistently market what you created, then it is time to delegate it: www.shereekeys.com/marketing-packages

To your success,

Sheree

Magical Mindsets, Miracles and Manifesting eCourse – Launch Price

MagicalMindsetsLogo400
 
Hello Beautiful Souls!
 
I am so excited to invite you to hang out with me for the next year and let me “talk” to you each month and completely transform the way you think, act, and manifest miracles in your life.
 
Thousands of people write me and my staff each year telling us that they love the amazing programs and companies I create and that they want to learn “my secrets”.  Then many of them share that unfortunately my coaching programs (ranging from $2500 to $12,000 right now) are out of their current budget.   
 
The thing is that your current budget is a symptom of your mindsets and your inability to manifest little and big miracles each day in your life.  I know if you can just think differently (using my magical mindsets!), you can learn how to create a life of your dreams!

So I decided to put a monthly virtual group coaching program together for ANY BUDGET that holds the space for MIRACLES for YOU!

How to Discover Your Passion & Make It Your Work by Sheree Keys

 

First of all. Let’s redefine work. Or should I say “passionate work”… From now on, I want you to seek work that fulfills you and allows you to live your passion. Because when you do, you will feel more alive and attract more abundance than you ever have in the JOB that you do just for the money.

So now that we have redefined work, I want to leave you with a step-by-step plan (and a back-up plan of sorts) because as you know… change doesn’t happen over night. It can happen really fast though the more you listen to the intuitive yearnings.

Step One – Identify Your Dream

Write out your dream. Can be short or long… but it has to make you be so excited that you are willing to lose sleep over it and you forget to eat! Not that I want you to do that all the time… I just want you to be that excited. 

Example:

“My current next dream is to have my own yoga/painting studio.”

Step Two – Visualize Your Success

Write out what this dream will look like. The more specific the details, the better.

Example:

“The name of my studio is Global Art Academy. My studio will have enough space to hold large classes of at least thirty people at a time. The space will be comfortable and beautiful. There will always be free fruit and fruit/mint infused water similar to the spa experience. I will hold daily/weekly classes for the public as well as train emerging professionals. I will also hold gallery exhibits for emerging and professional artists.”

Step Three – Move in the Direction of Your Dream

Take a concrete step towards the dream. Big or small. Doesn’t matter. Congratulate yourself!

Example:

“I trademarked company name and have delegated the logo design. I am currently taking yoga certification and I am painting regularly as well as taking online art classes too.

Step Four – Turn Your Concerns Over to God

This is the most important step. And you may need to do this step daily. All the doubts that pop up… say a little prayer to God about them and then let the doubts go.

Example:

“I will never be able to do a headstand or remember all this chanting! How on earth am I going to teach yoga!”

“God… I know you will help me improve each day and learn everything I need to be and do so I can inspire others in my yoga classes.”

Step Five – Follow the Guidance You Receive

Follow the divine guidance you receive… remember, these often come in the form of A HA’s and Downloads. They tend to be whispers, not shouts. So pay attention and move slowly through life when possible.

You will also know you are receiving divine guidance if you have a sense of calmness and certainty that at least the next step is a good direction. Not saying the rest of the steps (especially the unknown ones!) won’t give you a little anxiety—they might. But the next step is exciting and you are ready.

Intuitive divine guidance tends to be repetitive also… have you received this guidance before in your life?

And finally, opportunities will begin to flow in and open up for you when you are experiencing divine guidance.

Step Six – Surrender & Trust

Mama said there would be days like this. Remember to keep all the channels open (refer back to previous lessons) and to use all the “brains” in your body (head, heart, and gut) to help guide you along this very important journey.

Example:

“I am total student right now in all that I seek to teach down the road. That’s ok… I am in this for the transformational journey and I am ready to be molded no matter how uncomfortable this gets. I’ve been the student before and I accomplished so much by surrendering and trusting while in the rabbit hole!”

Step Seven – Appreciate and Enjoy the Life You Have

“I call gratitude the beginning and the end, because it is the most powerful way to start everything and the most humble way to end anything. Gratitude expressed for the things you have and the people you love informs the universe about what you desire to keep and what you want to bring into your life.”

– Kaarin Alisa

Kaarin says it perfectly I think. So every time you access your intuitive voice (we will talk more about accessing intuition in lesson 10) give heartfelt thanks for its presence in your life. Simply thinking or saying the following will do the trick. “Thank you God for bringing clear intuition into my life.”

Finally, it is also important to be grateful not just for your own voice, but also for the intuitive voices of others. Every time someone gives you advice and you hear the voice of intuitive wisdom expressed, thank them for the help.
