This week's question from my portal “The Neagle Code: Directions for Life” comes from Margaret Foster. You can find her on the web at http://www.margaretafoster.co.uk/.
I qualified as a life coach and NLP Practitioner over 3 years ago. The plan was to work in an office during the day and build my business during the evenings. However, I've only coached a handful of people and they were free sessions. I often help people out at work with their problems, but they never want to sign up for anything.
If I'm honest I'm scared to sell my services. Many people I've spoken to don't even know what coaching is and when I've explained, I get a lot of negative feedback.
I'm totally stuck and keep thinking that maybe I should just give up but something won't let me for some reason.
So my question is – should I give it up as a bad job? Maybe the Universe is trying to tell me something!
You are absolutely right, Margaret. The Universe is most definitely trying to tell you something.
Here's the secret to finding out exactly what it's trying to tell you:
1) Spirit never speaks to you through fear.
2) The desire you feel is GIVEN to you by Spirit.
So if you are feeling fear around selling your services, you can immediately know that the fear you are experiencing is coming from your ego. And if it's coming from your ego, you know it's a LIE designed to stop you.
And when you are feeling the desire to grow your business and help others, you can immediately know that the desire you are experiencing is coming from Spirit. And if it's coming from Spirit, you know it's the TRUTH.
So, whom are you going to choose to listen to?
I hope you listen to that Spirit-given desire within you and begin to really take a look at why you have fear around selling your services.
You must realize that the fear is the only thing keeping you from your desire and step through it.
