Mental Muscle

When it comes to doing IPA (Income Producing Activities) I often feel like I do when at the gym and it’s time to do some squats or straight-leg raises for a kick-ass lower ab work out. Deep down inside I know that these two exercises which also happen to be the most painful to me will do more to sculpt my body in my trouble areas than any other exercise. The irony is that the most powerful result-producing activities/exercises I should be doing at the gym are what I least desire to do; yet I somehow manage to desire the most powerful results, a 6 pack 22 in waist with a round perfectly sculpted 36 booty. Well, if you’ve ever worked out at the gym for an extended period of time, then I’m sure you know like I know that the body just doesn’t work that way– in fact, neither does life or business.

We often want to make the most money by doing the least income-producing activities in our business most; like posting a lifestyle post on Instagram or Facebook, then expecting the floodgates of conversions and 5 figure months to come hurling in. When I say least income producing activities, this is not to negate the intrinsic value in sharing a lifestyle post with your followers, but a lifestyle post alone isn’t going to hurl in instant conversions and 5 figure months for the most part. Or how about always posting positive quotes and memes but never following up with warm prospects to convert them to paying customers out of fear of rejection? We’ve all been there. We’d rather do the light weight stuff, like walking on the treadmill to tone our legs rather than grabbing those 15 pound dumb-bells and really going in on burning and sweating those thighs and gluts out with 3 sets of painful squats. As the saying goes, ‘No pain no gain.’

Successful entrepreneurs start their day going straight for the highest IPA they can muster, rather than procrastinating and messing around with checking email, scrolling through facebook for 3 hours or organizing files. Successful people go straight for the jugular upon awakening. In other words, immediately after a 60 minute morning ritual, successful people tackle their day by ‘eating the bull-frog first‘. Eat the bull-frog first is an expression, referencing the high-rewarding notion of getting the most uncomfortable, anxiety-producing task of the day out of the way early, which is tantamount to eating your vegetables, most gross thing on your plate first, so that the rest of the day then becomes smooth sailing. You’re no longer walking around with tension and anxiety in your belly all day while procrastinating the inevitable uncomfortable IPAs you know needs to be done. So you just dive in, eating that ugly, hairy bullfrog on your plate, or making that first phone call of the day to a warm prospect. When you begin to tackle the critical tasks of your day early, by noon for example the rewards are endless.

For one, you will be making more money than you’ve ever made before, just as you would be losing more weight than you’ve ever lost before. And once you become an expert at making more money or losing more weight than the average, your confidence will soar to new levels you never knew were possible for you. The ripple effect of these two factors alone, will transform you into a success magnet. Suddenly those painful activities will feel a lot less painful when you begin to see daily double and triple digit deposits in your accounts.

Self-Development Exercise:
Keep a picture of a bullfrog tape to a wall of your home office where you will see it first thing in the morning when you rise as a daily reminder to eat the bull frog first. By the law of compensation, law of belief, law of harvest, law of averages, law of attraction, law of inertia, law of cause and effect you will begin to attract the desired results in your business. I talk about these spiritual Universal laws in my book, 6 Figure Mindset coach: Change Your Philosophies, Change Your Life which you may now order at www.parisarmani.com, www.amazon.com and www.barnesandnoble.com in print and Kindle editions.

What’s a Spiritual Entrepreneur?

May you be willing to do whatever it takes get “unstuck’ and take that bountiful leap of faith into that place of greatness called Purpose.

Sometimes I’m struck with an inspirational idea for a new project that I know could potentially not only impact hundreds if not thousands of lives, but that would also position me as a thought leader in the coaching, publishing and speaking industries… but bc it doesn’t come with a ready-made blue-print I fear failure and don’t take that leap of faith.

Does this sound like you?

What happens is we get “stuck” trying to work out all the details before we ever get started and the end result is … we never actually get started.

As a spiritual self-development coach my sole focus is to help my clients transition from that place of mental “stuckness,”  and fear of taking that bountiful leap of faith, and transition into playing FULL OUT on their entrepreneurial spirit!

There is a spiritual entrepreneur in each of us, only we live in a world that doesn’t value or celebrate spiritual gifts.

Playing small with our spiritual gifts is a big mistake because our spiritual gifts are the most abundant resource we as entrepreneurs have  freely accessibly to us for creating and attracting  more abundance in our lives.

For some of us, our spiritual gifts are all we have. It’s time we stopped being afraid of monetizing our gifts, playing full out with our gifts, of  building thriving businesses and careers around our gifts.

What A Spiritual Entrepreneur is Not

A spiritual entrepreneur is not your typical pool-pit Sunday preacher using the word of Elohym to dupe their church members into furnishing their extravagant lifestyles while claiming to be a non-profit organization.

No, those are preachers that I no longer give my money too. My experience with church has shown me that there is far too much corruption in the church when it comes to tithes to give them my money. The Malachi passage on paying tithes has been taken way out of context.

I’d rather invest my money in educational products and courses created by gifted Spiritual Entrepreneurs that I know will give me a seven-fold return on my investment so I can donate more to real NPOs.

The word of Elohym (God) is priceless, and yes it is better to give than to receive, but the word also says we should never give under compulsion, nor should we have to feel compelled to give of our last for the preachers benefit. We are to give from the abundance of our heart.

Our giving is for orphans and widows, which is why I started the non-profit, Children of Israel’s Charity for Orphans and Widows. I live by the philosophy of always setting aside 10% of my income for charitable giving.

Now back to the Word; though the Word is priceless, the Bible it’s self, the ink, the paper, that nice leather book cover … of course we all understand that it costs money to produce the physical book, which means it will cost money purchase the physical book … but the power inherent in those 66 books, the value of the life giving, self-healing, abundance and prosperity producing spiritual treasures contained within those pages could never be measured in dollars and cents.

It’s no different with spiritual entrepreneurs. In a sense, Spiritual Entrepreneurs are creators. It’s not the message, the testimonies, the healing powers or spiritual self development that our clients and customers pay for;

but to put together and host a spiritual retreat costs money to rent a space; to publish a spiritual book costs money for marketing. Not to mention the countless hours the author invested years of research, experience and their skillful ability to organize and present a well organized finished product or service that will literally collapse time into a fraction of the time it took for the creator of said product to abstract the lessons that will take you to the next level.

The transmutation of business building skills does come with a price tag. Ones years of honing their public speaking skills in order to deliver a life-transformational  message comes with a price tag. We don’t pay for the message, we pay for the powerful results that will inevitably show up in our lives. We pay for things we value, and others value your time you have to put a price tag on it or others will demand every minute of it.

A People Business

A Spiritual Entrepreneur is in the people business. We create original content that serves as medicine for the human soul.

We replace financial goals with human impact goals. We think not in terms of how much money will I make from said product or course, but in terms of how many people will it inspire?

Instead of setting a $10k per month financial goal for example, my human impact goal is inspiring 10k lives per month. This is why I often say that Spiritual Entrepreneurship is a people business.

My vision for writing Change Your Philosophies Change Your Life was to inspire 1k Spiritual Entrepreneurs to play Full Out on their entrepreneurial Spirit using the 10 Spiritual Laws and Principles break down. Then of course, I 10Xed it and raised my global impact goal to inspiring 10K Spiritual Entrepreneurs.

If each of those 10k entrepreneurs my book helps to inspire were to go on to inspire just 100 more Entrepreneurs, then the ripple effect of investing in human lives will have a total global impact of inspiring 1M lives.

Spiritual Entrepreneurs are called to set purposeful and meaningful goals that are bigger than themselves. Using their gift of Inspiration they inspire the cooperation of others in their tribe to help spread the mission.

Spiritual Entrepreneurs value people, not things. The irony is that the money comes as a result of making this fundamental mindset shift. Impacting people is the cornerstone of every great purposeful calling.

My wish for you on your Spiritual Entrepreneurship journey is that you arrive to this place called purpose for yourself.

And next time you’re struck with the inspiration to impact thousands of lives, may you push past the fear knowing that hundreds of lives are waiting to be impacted by your work; May you read Change Your Philosophies Change Your Life, hire a coach, and speak it into existence.

May you be willing to do whatever it takes get “unstuck‘ and take that bountiful leap of faith into that place of greatness called Purpose. Know that there is greatness within you… you ARE the blue-print! But sometimes… it takes a coach.
