“It’s not easy to increase your capacity to receive because it’s really uncomfortable. It’s uncomfortable in your mind. It’s uncomfortable, uncomfortable in your body. It’s uncomfortable in your emotions. And so getting comfortable with all that discomfort is what’s going to allow you to see.” – Marla Mattenson
DURING THIS EPISODE
I actually allowed Marla to give me feedback about the way in which I’m holding myself back in my life and in our business, and how to move through it. Ultimately, our goal here today with this episode in particular, is to support you in increasing your capacity to receive more money, more success, more love, more happiness.
WAYS TO INCREASE YOUR CAPACITY TO RECEIVE
- Tell the Universe you are ready to receive
- Intentionally pivot to the things that bring you joy
- Look for different opportunities that you haven’t seen before
- Do something new to get new results
- Get comfortable with discomfort
CHANGING YOUR RELATIONSHIP WITH DISCOMFORT
- Discomfort is the first thing you need to be willing to receive
- Discomfort means growth
- Discomfort means opportunity
- Be curious rather than afraid of what comes next
- Our biology is designed to keep us safe and small
- Pivot and move toward your vision when you feel the sabotage creeping in
RECEIVING FEEDBACK AND RESPONDING TO CHALLENGE
- Preplan how you will respond to feedback and challenges
- Pause long enough to receive the message and let it land
- Know where your growth edges are and be willing to lean into that space
- All feedback that you receive is love
