I’m a natural cheerleader for and love co-creating with entrepreneurs who dare to do things differently.
Who’s desire it is to make a deep impact by following their joy, living in alignment to their calling and create a business from a deep trust in Self and the desire to serve others by sharing their gifts with the world.
And I love my job as a webdesigner so much, because I get to combine my passion for graphic design/webdesign with my love for coaching. How? Well, as a webdesigner for these purpose-driven and joy-inspired entrepreneurs, I not only create a beautiful website for them, I also have the opportunity to help them re-align and stay true to their calling & feel more confident in following their joy.
And I want to inspire you to do the same. That is why in this article I will share with you the 3 core habits every successful purpose- driven and joy-inspired entrepreneur I ever met and worked with, have in common. And why I believe that these habits are crucial for you to activate your creative flow, unlock your natural confidence & stand out from the crowd without any pushy or use manipulative, fear based strategies to ‘social prove’ your worth as an expert in your niche.
Before I became a Showit Website designer, I spent 10+ years being an intuitive coach & spiritual embodiment guide. The focus of my work with my clients was to guide them on their personal journey of spiritual embodiment & clarity of the purpose of their life. Helping them to realise that everything they experience in life can actually be utilized to free themselves from endless cycles of struggle, feelings of being stuck in – or victim to – limiting beliefs that holds them back from living a fulfilling life that brings them joy and abundance.
And as I saw that many of my coaching clients were ready to make space in their lives for what I believe to be a natural human desire: the desire to serve others by sharing our wisdom & resources that helped us grow on our own journey*(sharing them with others who are ready to receive them), they became what I now call purpose-driven & joy-inspired entrepreneurs.
*It’s important for me to make a note here: that this innate human desire is not to be mistaken for the longing, craving or yearning that comes from a place of fear, need or greed and that typically drives people to want to make as much money as possible (consciously or unconsciously). Although I do believe there is nothing wrong with making a lot of money doing what you love/feel called to do at all (!!), as long as this is not the core of the desire, but more of a natural consequence of following your calling. So this means that making that much money comes from a place of pure inspiration & joy.
And as I have gone through this journey as an entrepreneur myself, making many mistakes and experiencing several fall backs into the ‘ego’ craving for more, better, higher, etc… (which still happens to me every now and then!), I found that for me, following my calling and the inspired action that comes from that, is the ONLY way to run a sustainable and thriving business.
So now, with that said, it’s time for me to share those 3 habits I have found that every successful purpose- and joy driven entrepreneur I ever met and worked with, have in common:
Allowing themselves to dream big and use envisioning/imagineering as a tool to experience what their desired reality would be like, how they would experience it and what effect it could have on the greater context of things if it was already experienced right here right now.
Yet at the same time, always aware of the importance of not getting caught up in the attachment to any form of outcome the ego-mind comes up with. Trusting the unfolding process and learning to discern between the ‘fear-of-lack’ based ego-mind needs and wants (which are not wrong in itself, just usually not very helpful in this process) and the true soul-driven desires which can also be translated as your true calling in this lifetime.
Devotion to always first reconnect to source and the attitude of not ‘doing’ anything, not taking any steps until there is absolute clarity and joy.
The spiritual journey is different and unique for everyone, but from what I have seen and experienced myself is that this devotion is best practiced if someone includes a combination of different forms of these practices:
√ free flowing movement and
√ conscious breathing
And these ‘devotional practices’ help them to stay true to prioritizing the following things:
Which then allows for them to experience nothing short of living a life that makes them feel joyous, fulfilled, grateful… and happy to be alive!
In this inquiry it all comes down to trusting Source, knowing truth (radical self honesty) and transparency. Trusting that whatever is showing up in their reality, they are capable of moving through.
Being aware of, but not allowing themselves to follow, the tendency of getting sucked back into unconscious, subconscious programs that keeps them trapped in the Victim – Victimizer dynamic. Recognising that this VV game is what keeps them trapped and daring to take that red pill time and time again to free themselves of that illusory perception of being separate from Source.
Daring to face their shadows and although not being oblivious, numb or offended by those of others/the collective, not focussed on trying to fix any of it or even avoid the discomfort of it. Resisting the human urge to fight it by trying to avoid it in order to elminated it from their awareness, but being the triggerless loving witness to all of it instead and learning how to navigate this human game in the most loving and joyous way possible.
So to summarize my findings: what successful purpose- driven and joy-inspired entrepreneurs have in common is that they have found a way to become limitless and find clarity in any moment in their lives by understanding how they (unconsciously) created the chaos in the first place.
And through that clarity and devotion to truth, they have overcome the limiting beliefs and conditionings that kept them bound to any needless suffering, giving up their freedom, integrity or their joy. Including the endless struggles to make ends meet financially.
So if you consider yourself to also be a purpose driven entrepreneur and believe that life is too precious to waste your time on doing something that does not contribute to more joy. And you also think that life is far too short to let yourself be stopped by limiting beliefs and lack-based fears and doubts, I invite you to take another close look at these 3 powerful nuggets I shared with you and start prioritizing!
If you feel up for it, let’s start right now with the first habit: Regularly tuning into your dreams and desires. Grab a pen and paper and follow along.
Imagine – what would it be like if …
Because the truth is, if you are following your calling and even in your business would only act in clarity and joy, then it is not only possible but INEVITABLE that you will make money doing what you love effortlessly.
I believe that the world needs you to give yourself permission to shine! To me this includes you living your passion, following your joy and re-align your whole life to your calling. I believe we live in a time where we see more and more purpose driven entrepreneurs actually listen to that deeper calling within, surrender to it and allow themselves to flow towards the life and business they have always dreamed of. And I am very excited to see what world will arise from this co-creation.
So now, if you feel inspired and go: heck yes! I am ready for that too ánd I would love to have a brand and website that is in full alignment to this, then I am here for you. As your designer ánd your coach.
Let’s co-create something magical together!
