Have you ever wondered what it really means to do mindset work so you can reach the next level in your business? What are you actually doing? Are you journaling? Are you meditating? Or something else?
Today, I’m sharing some of the inner work that I’m doing and the big internal shifts I’ve been making in my coaching business with the help of my amazing coach, Taylor Lee. We took a look at my goals, and she helped me come to this realization: Am I really in tune with my goals, or am I setting them just for the sake of setting them?
This was so eye-opening for me because in this conversation, I was telling her how a couple weeks prior, I had multiple people say to me that I was one of the best-kept secrets in the coaching industry, which is such a nice thing to say. Essentially, the message was that I’m really fucking good at what I do.
It’s such a compliment, but here’s the thing – I don’t want to be the best-kept secret in the coaching industry. If I’m this good, I should be like Jenna Kutcher, Amy Porterfield, or Jasmine Star status, right? Like, I should have 2 million followers on Instagram. So why don’t I?
So, I talked to Taylor about this, and she helped me figure out the unintentional identity I’ve been rocking – “The Best Kept Secret Dustin.” And thinking about how I want to show up in the future, we came up with the next level identity – “Name in Shining Lights Dustin.” This process involved A TON of journaling on how I’m embodying my current identity and figuring out how I want to show up in my new identity.
It’s not even about the action I’m taking, right? It’s about acknowledging who I have been and how I’ve been showing up, and acknowledging how I want to be showing up, owning it, and really embracing that this is who I am and that I’m a big fucking deal.
Change comes from shifting your identity. I have to believe and step into this identity that I am a really big deal before the world will believe it. It’s so simple, but when you do this work, it’s so freeing.
And already in the last month, I’ve been able to see shifts in my business. Last month was one of the biggest months I’ve had in such a long time, and this month is shaping up to be even bigger. The key? Not necessarily doing more, but doing the right things with a different energy.
So, if you’ve ever wondered about the real, behind-the-scenes struggles, this episode lays it all out. It’s a vulnerable journey, but if we embark on it together, the game-changing results are worth it.
