The true challenge in scaling a business
Scaling is a matter of psychology and math. The challenge lies in scaling with meaning and purpose. And not becoming a slave to success.
Most of Jesse’s work involves helping entrepreneurs infuse their business with deeply personal meaning so the work itself is rewarding and money is a byproduct.
The ultimate entrepreneurial fuel is confidence.
Confidence comes from evidence and evidence must continually be replenished.
Habitually measure backward and give your accomplishments the respect they deserve.
Pausing and practicing active appreciation
Write down a list of the top 10 things you’ve accomplished in the last 30 days.
The fastest way to have your better future arrive is to…
Master the present.
Use the past as an excuse for dropping into appreciation.
Feel the fullness and confidence of that in the present moment.
I get to create vs I have to create.
The critical celebrator
If you tend to diminish your achievements and can’t think of any to write down:
- Pick something from a decade ago or from this morning.
- What’s important is the feeling you have around it.
- Appreciate and experience that confidence right now.
Your brain can’t entertain 2 frequencies at the same time.
Reflecting on your accomplishments displaces judgment and low-level vibrations of fear and uncertainty.
Meditation + a millionaire’s mindset
“In the beginning, it’s uncomfortable and awkward.”
Turn anything around in your life within 10 minutes by leaning from one thought to the next best thought and notice the disparity between the two.
Normalize the new thought by journalling and continuing to lean into the direction of the new thought.
It’s easier to make $100K than it is to make $10K
Invest in your vision with a morning routine
Spend 10 minutes stretching
“Yessing” 3-4x will jolt your solar plexus
Journal your vision without logic or strategy
Put yourself in that vision
Selecting dialogs aligned with your purpose and goals
Choosing which dialogs to have is dependent on size, strength, and beauty of your vision.
“You’re really only about 40 conversations away from 10xing any particular area of your life.”
Deleting dogma around fear
Fear is just an electric energy to do your best in a new situation.
It’s normal to download images that scare you the more you unfold your vision and feel into your best future.
“Somebody listening to this…they’re being stretched and invited into a bigger version of why they came to this planet. Having heard that, they can’t pretend they don’t know. And now there’s a book that they know they’re supposed to write and can’t pretend they didn’t just hear me say that.”
“We all have decisions that we’re being called into and every day is the opportunity to say yes to the right ones.”
