The Local Maximum and Moving Your Booty

You Cant Get Paid What You’re Worth..at Work.

If you’re like most people you go to work everyday and you do a job for someone. They typically will pay you less than you’re ‘worth’ – not in the sense of your ultimate worth, because I happen to believe that you are priceless, but in terms of the relative worth of your output vis a vis the goals of the business. Its just basic economics – they cannot pay you exactly what you’re worth or even close to it because it would drive them out of business if they did. Its the value of your surplus labor – the delta between the value of your surplus labor and what they pay you contributes to the profit of the business.

Why do I mention this here? Because its a common complaint of many people working a day-to-day job and is often used as a jumping off point of dissatisfaction and the fuel for many fantasies of ‘what I would do if I didn’t have to work here’ musings. Interestingly enough, its almost never enough of a motivator for someone to say “We are done here!” and walk out of their ‘job’ to pursue a different reality, one in which they are for instance, their OWN boss.

What keeps you from getting started

My theory is that free floating job dissatisfaction actually masks another issue that is deeper and really keeps us stuck in place at our current place of employment. This is also a common problem with a lot of people and results from attachments to poverty and lack that can keep us stifled and in a paradox state – e.g. we are doing the Work that we are here to do, but somewhat dismayed at the lack of progress toward our living the life that we truly want to live. There can be a number of reasons for this – but the chief issue that we have found is that most people have little idea of the nuts and bolts of how to monetize what it is that they do so they can also begin living the life of their dreams from a wealth building standpoint. Additionally many denominations from our youth have implied from a doctrinal standpoint that poverty and suffering is what one should expect, if you are trying to ‘do good’. So there you have it – a recipe for dissatisfaction and heartache for many people who feel that Great Spirit/The Divine/God has a ‘call’ on their lives in some form and they feel led to express it in any number of ways.

The Local Maximum and Moving Your Booty

The local maximum is a mathematical term – It’s like standing on top of a small hill, when next to you is a mountain. You want to go up the mountain, but you can’t go straight from where you are to the top of the mountain… you must first go DOWN in order to go UP, and you hate to go down, because after all you really, really want to go up!! The principle of the local maximum keeps people stuck. It can keep you in bad relationships, in abusive relationships, in jobs you hate, in states of addiction to drugs. That Valley of Uncomfortable keeps you from working out, from starting a new business, from doing something, anything risky and from facing things that you are afraid of.

Why is this?

Because of the phenomenon of going down to go UP is scary and uncomfortable – lets say you are at a job that you despise right now and you want to GET FREE and start your own business. Because you aren’t currently doing said business, you are going to have to learn some things about working online that you probably dont currently know. But for now, you are looking from the Local Maximum where you are currently – at the Real Goal of making more money and having your own business!!

Can you do it!? Heck Yeah!!! In the world of ideas and potential you can DO anything..but in your REAL LIFE, in order to realize that dream of having your own business, you are going to have to do a number of things if you want to be successful, but two things pretty immediately.

1. Get off your BOOTY and BEGIN LEARNING HOW.  We have tons of resources here to help you do that. – this one in particular: The Hustle Free Business Class

2. (eventually) Stop doing what you are doing now and devote most of your energy toward doing what you want to do. When that day comes, lets be honest – unless you were independently wealthy to begin with, you will have to forgo the steady paycheck they are paying you now until your business income catches up. In other words, you will probably have to go DOWN a little before you go UP to where you want to be. Same thing happens if you get out of that sucky relationship…or finally start going to the gym after dedicating a ton of time to the Art of Doing Nothing.

Its going to hurt…at first. Eventually you’ll get better at it and things will be a LOT better.

Dont let the Local Maximum keep you stuck.

Cut down on the time spent in the Valley of Uncomfortable. If you want to make more money and stop working for Someone Else – align yourself with sources of knowledge (like Infinite Couple) and opportunities for income generation that will cut down dramatically on the time period of DOWN before UP.

The Hustle Free Business Class

You are going to have to work hard – that’s true. You are going to have to do some things you may not be used to doing in order to be successful. There WILL be growing pains. Commit yourself to working SMARTER, not HARDER. Let us help you over the hurdles we experienced by teaching you step-by-step what and how to do next. You’ll be successful THAT much quicker as a result.

But if you hang in there – you will be able to see yourself getting closer to your goal. Simlarly, getting out of that suck-ass relationship will mean being alone for a bit while you make space in your life for what you TRULY want. Again, DOWN before UP.

UP – is coming.

Hang in there. It will be SO worth it. Trust me on that.

Closer to the life you want to live. And that peace of mind is what this is really all about.

We’d LOVE to have you onboard with us – we believe in ethical marketing and we believe in Taking Inspired Action. Check in with your Inner Compass, whatever that looks like for you. Consult your Inner Guidance System or Spiritual practice. When you get your internal green light –

The Erosion of Masculinity

Ladies,

It’s time for us to really support Masculinity and to learn to live within femininity ourselves.

There is currently an erosion of masculinity taking place disguised as Awakening and Consciousness. Just as the erosion of Femininity was disguised as progress the same thing is occurring with Masculinity.

Just as the beginning of the erosion of Femininity took place first biologically for women it is now taking place biologically for men. Continue reading “The Erosion of Masculinity”

Lessons in Feminine Alchemy – Admiration vs. Respect

Lessons in Feminine Alchemy- Admiration vs. Respect

Many women believe that they desire most of all to be respected. And it’s easy to see why, respect is held up as the end all and be all of receiving positive regard from another person. And yet much is missing from the idea.

When you look at respect and admiration in the dictionary they are given similar definitions in fact they are synonyms of one another- but when you look into the etymology of the two terms much is revealed. Continue reading “Lessons in Feminine Alchemy – Admiration vs. Respect”

Lessons in Alchemy – Business

Lessons in Alchemy -Business

I started my first business in 1994 – home baked goods…lol – which later became event planning, gift baskets (in its heyday), then later I had a daycare (seemed like a good idea to be home with my children). I did henna body art professionally (and made a ton!) And I was a doula until I retired… all of which were more supplemental income and training in my mind.

I was trained in coaching and began that in 2008, I received my Kings vision of business in 2010 and We’ve been in business as our sole income since 2012 –

As you can imagine we’ve learned a great deal along the way… What works and what doesn’t….

One big thing is… Continue reading “Lessons in Alchemy – Business”

The Culture of Co-Opting Pain

One thing I have noticed in the last 7 years is that I find more and more people who have amazing lives who feel bad and guilty about them. People who were never abused, oppressed or struggled feeling like something is WRONG with them or like they need to carry some guilt for their happiness. People who maybe have gone through challenging things who aren’t carrying deep wounds but feel like they SHOULD.

I’ve observed people attempting to do what I call the Culture of Co-Opting Pain. Where you begin to take on others identity, orientation, and perspective as a form of Empathy. It is the Shadow of empathy.

I am not for any attempt to make people feel bad, shame or like they should shrink because they are Happy, Healthy, Loved, Wealthy, Liked, and full of what they Desire.

I see more and more this pressure for people to:

*confuse authenticity with having deep insecurities or issues.
* confuse being healthy with being able-est
* confuse loving one’s body with body shaming others
* confuse enjoying one’s life- with a lack of compassion for other lives
* confuse loving one’s own gender, and sexuality – with oppressing that which is NOT one’s own orientation

In other words, the only way to prove that you accept and care for others is to identify as they identify – which is not TRUE – and is actually just another form of monoculture and rejection of the diversity that we are here to experience.

Perhaps this has been forgotten:

“You are a child of God. Your playing small does not serve the world. There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We were born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us; it’s in everyone.” ~Marianne Williamson

In other words- be YOU – be Happy… and feel free to be EXCELLENT!!

The Blessing of Missing Out

Most of us know about FOMO, also known as the Fear of Missing Out

It’s the driving force of many actions these days, the Fear of Missing Out causing us to fill our days in unconscious ways that are not aligned with our joy, desires or purpose…

There are many ways to release this FOMO, but one of the best is to make peace with your past.

You see, past regret and fear is what creates the fertile soil for FOMO. Looking back on previous times and feeling like you made bad calls, missed opportunities, and simply could have done better than you did will then cause you to project that fear into the future

YOU can get free from this when you understand the BOMO- the Blessing of Missing Out.

BOMO is the deliberate opening to seeing the amazing blessing in everything you have missed out on. It is the Reframe that changes EVERYTHING.

It gives you freedom, groundedness and a deep Knowing that you need fear nothing.

When my King and I didn’t go to the show in Vegas, when we made that choice, we just knew we wanted to stay in the pool and hot tub and didn’t want to go to a show… we removed FOMO as a factor in our life… And we found BOMO.

Look at your life darling… Where has been the BOMO?

Lessons in Alchemy- Integral Living

There is a Universe of difference between these three statements:

I can’t
I don’t know how
I chose not to

One is a function of true possibility – and so is a lie, for there is nothing you can not do.

One is a function of ability – This is the space of potentiality….curiosity and being inquisitive as all things are learnable.

One is a function of availability- a decision made based on benefit and effectiveness. Continue reading “Lessons in Alchemy- Integral Living”
