On this episode of the profitable practice podcast, I’m going to tell you why you need to stop wishing for all of the things you want and just go and frigging take it. Stay tuned.
Hey there my amazing maximized practitioners, I wanted to tell you a story. I wanted to tell you a story about how my entire journey into the online space started. My word for 2021 is ‘manifest’ that is all that I want to do. That is exactly how I wanted to approach this year. Tapping into that higher level of being, tapping into that higher level of vibration. And really flexing that muscle of manifesting everything that I have ever wanted. Now that I feel like I’m released from a lot of the things that I didn’t wanted, that did not bring me joy; that I was doing because I felt it obligated to do it. Now I really feel like I’m just so centered. And I’m just approaching life, I’m approaching my marriage, I’m approaching my relationships with my kids in such a different way. In such a profound way, in a way that I quite frankly never thought possible.
And on this journey to manifestation and one of the people who I’ve watched to training is the manifestation babe. I really love how she says ‘what is something that you have to work for, it’s not something that you’d just think about it. You snap your fingers and all the sudden you have everything that you want’. But putting yourself out to the universe in such a vulnerable way, surrendering to the path and what my favorite thing is what she said is ‘there is no timeline.’ All you can do is just ask the universe for what is it that you want and the universe will deliver, when the universe knows that you’re ready. My journey up to this point has taken me 10 years. That was the journey that I needed to take. Other people it happens to them in 1 or 2 years. There was a lot of growth, a lot of limiting beliefs that I had to get rid of, a lot of showing up to my business in a different way but I had to change. And all of that in hindsight was me putting out what I wanted, the universe giving it to me. Or giving me the breadcrumbs to get to that goal and there was no timeline set for it. I didn’t say ‘ok in 2019, I have to have x,y, or z. In 2020 this is our goal, in 2021 this is our goal.’ I unintentionally left the time stamps out of it and just said this is what I want someday. And this is exactly why I wanted to tell you about my journey and how it all started.
I had just thought about starting the profitable practice podcast, which we are now almost 200 episodes in if you can believe it. And I had just thought about creating a newsletter and really stepping into the space to help my practitioners grow. This was back in 2014 and I was following James Wedmore at the time. James Wedmore, I had purchased video traffic academy course at 97 dollars and I just continued to follow him. I stopped getting his emails, somehow got back on his email. And his email said ‘if you want to get free coaching from me, you have to submit a 3 min. video and I’m only taking 30 people for free. And I’m going to coach them’. This was before BBD was created. And without even a thought, without even second guessing it, without even saying ‘oh, I’ll get to this later’. I remember sitting at my office, I was in my Caledonia office. I opened up my computer, used my webcam that was already part of my laptop so it wasn’t like a fancy technology or anything and sat at my reception desk and recorded my video about why should I be chosen to be coached.
My husband and I are living in our condo at that time, and I kind of forgot that I even submitted this because it wasn’t for a couple of weeks later that I got an email. And I distinctly remember this moment, Scott and I were watching TV probably the ‘Biggest Losers’ one of our favorite things to watch. So this was a while back and I got a ping on my phone and it was an email. And the sender was James Wedmore, and again I kind of forgotten that I had submitted this video about wanting to be coached with him for free. And in the body of that email, it said ‘you have been one of the chosen people to join my new free coaching program, we don’t know what it’s going to be about, we don’t know how it’s going to work but this is just a new project that I want to work on. Do you still want to be one of this founding members?’ and I remember my response being like ‘F yeah. So effing in.’ I sent it and of course he responded back with ‘hahaha’.
Anyways, so joining that and I find that there’s these moments in life and I’m sure you all can agree with me where there’s certain things that you take action on them without even thinking about it. Like someone says this is what you’re going to do and then before you even know it, your fingers are already doing the typing or you’re already clicking around and searching for things, or you already just went out and bought that book or bought that program or whatever. When these things happen in my life, it’s always because that is exactly the path that I was supposed to be on. Because without being 30 min. later I submitted my video. I didn’t think about it, I didn’t even script it, I didn’t even think about what I was going to say. I just did it, got it done, sent it away and just like let the chips fall where they may. But the point of my story is this.
So I was in his coaching program going through the mindset work, it was the first time that I launched the webinar by being coached by him. But when things really started to shift for me, was when I went to our very first BBD live event. And it was just the 30 of us going to Laguna Beach in this beautiful hotel that was overlooking the ocean. And the 30 of the founding members got together for a weekend, I had not paid for travel at this time. I had never had a hotel for work before, this is the first time leaving the country and going all the way across North America to California. So all of these first happened and I remember this feeling of looking at him, working with this amazing team, referring to team Wedmore and they all had the shirts and they were really commanding this live event and anytime James needed support, one of the team members would show up and support him. And it was that moment where I distinctly remember being like ‘I wish I could have that team’. And this was my first taste of travelling for business and that was always a wish that I wanted to have. I wish I would travel more for business, I wish I could get away for a few days and not worry about the cost. Not worry about how I was going to pay for it. Get an air BNB which was also the first time I’ve done air BNB. These are the wishes that started to come out, was I wish had that team, I wish I was traveling more, I wish I had their lifestyle etc.
And years went by, so again this was 2014 we had Aria that year, we got married that year. I launched my book where I released my book Maximized Health that year. And then things just went back to normal. Although every time I would see James, or every time he referred to about his team I got jealous. Because I went to the BBD live events continuously, so that started to feed into this ok to travel piece. So I was traveling then one time a year which then became 2x a year. And I kept just being like this is what I want, there’s something that I’m doing right now that is not in alignment with what I need. With the person that I want to become, with the lifestyle that I want. It was just all about wishing. Wishing that someday I could just be in one location instead of 3. Wishing someday I could literally just sit behind my laptop and control my world and be in a very safe place all the time instead from going from clinic to clinic and commuting and all these other things.
For 5 years I was just wishing, I was just wishing that one moment would happened that I would have this breakthrough year with all of the revenue that I could imagine. That would just have all of these things. And when that wish happened when those things happened X, Y or Z would start to unfold. And this was why when we celebrated our 100th member joining the maximized practitioner program, I wanted to create affirmation cards and send them out to all of our members. And one of those cards which I did in Instagram post on, that’s @andreamaximnd. One of those cards said ‘Everything that you have or don’t have is entirely on you.’ This quote singlehandedly got me out of wishing mode, got me out of this wanting or longing for mode and really snapped me back to reality and got me thinking more about me and how I was showing up. And the types of limiting beliefs that I had that I needed to work through, and where those obstacles were for me allowing myself to grow. And once I got rid of this idea that I wasn’t able to have the team that I wanted. I wasn’t able to be in one clinic space, I wasn’t able to sit behind my laptop and be in this place where I can stay creative. I wasn’t able to attract this amazing people to support me.
Once I got out of this external circumstance mode where I felt like everything was against me. Where I had to wait for this perfect moment, or when I have the money, or when I have this or the other and got into 100% what I want, I can have. What I need will come to me freely if I set up myself into that place. And I just stopped outwardly blaming and taking full responsibility for where I was, why I was there, why I have the struggles that I had and what were the changes that I needed to make. Even though it was scary AF, I still need to do it. So in 2019, that was when I signed up with Alec Charfin’s program, and I’ve talked to this in previous podcast but I think that this is something that bears repeating. Where it was the most that I had spent and I was like ‘this is what I need, I want a team. I am really now committed to my goal of sitting in my office on my laptop all day King right next to me, he’s right next to me in the office right now. Looking outside of the window of my office seeing my kids joyful and happy and playing in the driveway. And where that feeling of happiness is coming from is that they have a beautiful connection with me. I’m showing up in a beautiful way, not stressed, not yelling, not frantic or frazzled which is exactly how I was operating when I had three offices and doing everything on my own. And I really felt chained to my calendar. That was the vision that I became so unbelievably committed to, that spending 25 thousand U.S. no longer became an obstacle.
This idea of money and my safe, one of my core identity is safety. Financial safety, security in my home that is something that I hold so near and dear that I worry about constantly is like someone breaking into my home. Of course that happens when you start having children but even financial security is a huge thing. So for me to work through this belief about tangible money and what it means to spend not 25 thousand Canadian, 25 thousand American which is like a bazillion dollars in Canadian dollars. To really prove to myself that I was committed to this version. I stopped wishing for it, I stopped waiting for it, I stopped wanting for it. I said this is what I need to do, I’m also the type of person who doesn’t want to figure it out on my own.
Someone’s paved a path, it’s going to get me there faster, that is the path that I’m going to take. And if I have to pay for it, cool, because my time is way more valuable than any amount of money in my bank account. From that moment on in 2019, I not only added on a project manager for the very first time. We actually quadrupled our team, so this allowed me then to step into hiring my first practitioner employee. Which as you all know last year we hired our final practitioner employee. Which even that happened from me wanting to get out of the space, wanting to hire second person, not really sure if I could, not really sure if it would work out. As I was in 2 practices, the shutdown happened, I let go of one clinic, and I am now in one space still not loving it. Thought that I could being in one clinic would change everything, it didn’t. And again, it was just a single moment I was listening to the 4x methodology or the 4x effect which is with Brandon Lucero my current mentor. And he was just talking about if you’re not living in full authenticity with you, if your world is not how you wanted to be. Again, you have to take full responsibility for it. You need to figure out where the beliefs are, you need to find everything that you can do to step away from the shackles, the pressure, and the noise. You can step into this person that you want to become.
Again, it was that moment where I said ‘F it’. I reached out to Jackie who was now our employee. She’d just signed up in the program, she was local. And I was like ‘hey, I don’t know if you’d like this idea, I’m going to put it out there, would you want to become a member of our team’. In a 48 hour period from 0 to hiring, it happened into days. I reached out to her literally within 30 min. again of being on this virtual summit and we closed 2 days later. These things happen when you finally get out of your own way, when you finally released the ego, released the fear and you step into a place where you are like ‘I’m going for it. This is what I needed to do to get to what I want to become. This is what I need to do to step into the role that I want to have. This is what I need to do to stop wishing. And there’s a lot of things that I know you are wishing for, that you are wanting for, that you are hoping someday will happen. And I’ll tell you that when you start having kids and growing your family, it can seem like it will never happen. And that was one promise that I always made to myself is yes I am a mom, yes I’m a wife, yes I am a fur mom. But I am always going to be an entrepreneur. That is my other core identity.
So my 3 core identities are entrepreneur, responsibility and safety or security. And I wasn’t going to lose sight of that. It didn’t matter how big my family grew, it didn’t matter what the demands were at home. My business is what fuels me, it’s what makes me a better mom, makes me a better wife and I wasn’t going to sacrifice that. And now, because I stopped wishing, because I stopped the wanting I’m finally at home behind my laptop all day long supporting my team, supporting my patients in a much more profound way. Because my employees are actually better at their job than I ever was because this is their wheelhouse. This is where I wasn’t supposed to be, and what’s really cool is with me being home now. It’s actually, I’m starting to see a shift in what my husband is now attracting with his business. Because his business always had to stall to support me and where my timeline was and what my calendar needed. And now that it’s freed up, all of the sudden he’s starting to get more and more job just flowing effortlessly to him. And I really do think that everything that I created now was in the right timing. It happened when it was supposed to happen to now open it up for his business to thrive. Because before everyone was stalled to support me and now I’ve created the lifestyle that’s now allowing everybody to step into the place that they needed to be. And it’s so cool when you start paying attention to the things like that.
So I want you to reach out to me on Instagram @andreamaximnd and I want you or even post, email me I want you to tell me one thing that you’ve been wishing for. Tell me one thing that you’ve been longing for. One thing that you’ve been hoping will happen. Comment, tag me DM me, PM me, email. I want to hear one thing that you have been wishing for, longing for. And then I’m going to help you get that out of the way as quickly as you possibly can. And I’ll help you reframe that it’s no longer to be a longing or wishing for, it doesn’t mean it’s going to happen instantaneously. But I’m going to put you on the path that’s going to break those things down. More often than not, we are self-sabotaging our journey, our progress. What we want and we don’t know it, but a lot of what we aren’t getting right now is also on us, just like that quote, right? Everything that you have and don’t have is 100% on you, it’s not about your circumstances, it’s not about your environment, and it’s not about where you are in your life stage. It is 100% on you and I want you to harness that power and use that power for good and I want to help you get there.
So reach out to me, you can always book a 30 min game plan call with me as well and we will have then 30 min. of one on one time to navigate through this. But stop stalling, stop getting in your way, stop wishing, stop longing. It is amazing what can transform in an instant; in 24 hours, in 48 hours, in maybe a couple of months, maybe in a year but at least you get there. And that’s what matters to me the most. I’m Andrea Maxim and I’m out.
