12 Tips For Mastering You In Entrepreneurship

As an entrepreneur, and a student on this journey I have learned it all starts with the mind. The mind is all and the universe is mental a principle of mentalism. In this game of life, you are the creator of your reality. What you eat mentally, physically, and spiritually is key. Our realities are manifestations of what’s within. Everything you need is already within you so fighting yourself and running on old programs will affect every aspect of your life including your business.  The name of this game is Master Yourself. To master yourself you must connect to that divine power within in to align with the true you. The category of your industry doesn’t matter these are golden nuggets and to mastering you because in the end that’s really one of our biggest lessons on this journey. In this article, I will give you some tips and tools to guide you on your journey.

MASTERING YOU TOOLS

  1. Know Thy Self- You must know who you are so that you’re able to stand strong in your integrity and character. Know who you are so that you aren’t wavering when you get around others who may test your integrity you need to be able to cultivate the inner strength for you to stand strong on your own unique path.
  2. Self-Love, Self-Respect, Self Confidence– Love, respect, and confidence are the true gems to this life. Before we can love another, we must love ourselves, loving yourself during the good and so-called bad times. Respecting yourself is to acknowledge and like who you are and to have empathy and compassion for yourself and have healthy high regard about who you are as a person flaws and all. How are you talking to yourself? Are you taking time for yourself and practicing self-care? Are you taking the necessary action to create the life you want? That’s where the confidence takes place and you check in on your self-esteem. Why do you feel inadequate? Are you loyal to you? Are you putting too much time, energy, and value into people’s opinions or just overall to people who don’t matter in your life? Clear out the emotional baggage and clutter. You matter, your loved and you are great just choose to embody everything that you want to be.
  3. Spiritual Practice– This is key and should of been #1 but it’s here. Are you taking the timeout to go within and receive the inner messages to guide you? Are you meditating, praying, and just overall practicing your form of spiritual practice? Are you centered in your inner peace and grounded in your spiritual practice? Your true self is never judging you that’s your ego. Spiritual growth must be a priority because everything we need and create starts within. You must believe and have faith in yourself and that the higher power within you is always there to create the miracles, blessing, and gifts you couldn’t have even imagined.
  4. Reprogramming Your Mind–  Are you aware of your thoughts? Do you think negatively? Are you thinking constructively? What old programming are you operating on that is no longer serving you?  To play the game of life we must go through challenges and to get through them you must be mentally strong and know and believe that you are LIMITLESS. Focus on you and become the best version of yourself, everyone else is taken.
  5. Self-Discipline– This will show up in every aspect of your life. If you want to level up in all aspects of your life cultivate this skill and quality in your life period. No excuses. Self-control and will power are one of the keys to your success. When you don’t feel like it this is when this skill needs to be cultivated. You want success GO GET IT! Discipline those thoughts and don’t dwell on your shortcomings or the old. Discipline your emotions. Discipline your habits and mind. Master this skill and you will soar.
  6. Intuition- Know the difference between your intellect and intuition. Always use both but your inner guide will never steer you in the wrong direction. Quiet your mind and listen.
  7. Gratitude- This is a must! Be grateful for all you have and all that’s coming. Be grateful for the blessings and challenges. Challenges make you grow. Start inviting them and the game you will master. Keep a gratitude journal and write. Keep your blessings on paper and in your heart.
  8. Energy– Master your energy and become aware of how you show up and show out. Heal all the pains of the past and transmute, gear it towards what you want. Raise your vibration and be loving, compassionate, and empathetic and always have discernment. Value your energy and don’t waste it on people, places, and things that no longer serve you.
  9. Enjoy the Process & Smile- Life is too short and long not to enjoy. You must have a sense of humor in your life. Focus on the positive and spend time with the ones you love that’s what matters most in this journey, not the materials we obtain that’s just whip cream on top, not the whole pie.
  10. Risk- Take the risk to try again after failure…That’s the secret. Release perfectionism and allow yourself to fail and try. Some risk you can calculate and some you just must have faith and keep it pushing. Just get up like Onaga from Mortal Kombat and kick butt. Win the war but choose your battles wisely!
  11. Well-Being-Health is wealth. Take care of your self-mind, body, and soul. You are a spiritual being having a human experience. Take care of your avatar! You are what you eat so eat to nourish your body. Limit stress as well and pamper your avatar when needed. Holistically take care of you.
  12. WALK-IN PURPOSE– IT WILL NEVER BE EXACTLY WHAT YOU THOUGHT IT WOULD BE BUT YOU WILL HAVE SOMETHING BIGGER THAN YOURSELF. LOVE WHAT YOU DO, BE CREATIVE, AND COMMITTED! RUN YOUR OWN RACE AT YOUR OWN PACE AND NEVER GIVE BEING A QUITTER AN OPTION!

These are just some of the master tools there are plenty more you and others may add because I can write a whole book but for the sake of this article, I shall digress. There are plenty of tools you can use but the key is to use them.

” I Am Compassionate”

Compassion towards myself has been one of the hardest lessons that I am still learning. Compassion for me didn’t come easy because I always thought something was wrong with me and felt I needed to be fixed or be someone else other than my true self. These emotions were deep-rooted inner child issues of abandonment, codependency, lack of boundaries amongst many others on the list of life lessons that I have endured during my life thus far.  In my childhood, I had experienced sexual trauma that took a toll on my life consciously and unconsciously. I no longer felt safe in my body and unconsciously created a persona to make me feel safe. It was hard for me to trust others and myself at such an early age. This persona became my defense mechanism and I carried this attitude that I would save and protect myself by not allowing anyone to get too close to me and if they were it was a codependent relationship. This later resulted in me building relationships as a teen and in my early twenties through trauma, codependent habits with family, friends, and romantic relationships.

It wasn’t until the year of 2012 where I started to become aware of a shift of awareness in my life. I was in a chapter in my life where my world was shaken up and my eyes became open to the pains that I had endured in my past and how I was carrying the trauma into my present life. This is what led me to my inner healing journey and spiritual awakening.  During my own inner healing journey, I have encountered many challenges about myself and the way I felt about myself on a physical and mental level. My self-talk was horrific, and it just made my self-esteem worse and it took a toll on my confidence. It’s been a long process of being a master onion and peeling back the layers to revive, refresh, and renew my life. It’s a constant process of compassionate self-introspection, forgiveness, letting go and unconditional love. Last year I faced another blow to my self-esteem as I was sexually assaulted by someone I knew and trusted. It triggered me back to my childhood as I fought back and when the person didn’t stop, I stopped fighting. I left my body and put back on the mask of guilt, shame, and unworthiness. I repressed and suppressed my emotions as I did in childhood as if nothing happened. I blamed myself for everything that happened and lacked compassion for myself at that time. I would throw myself into work until I felt exhausted. I was in my head replaying the whole scene trying to react it out and fight back till the end, I guilted myself to the point I felt powerless for six months and didn’t say, or act on anything that would have had assisted me in my healing. I was angry, enraged, and scared. I felt humiliated, with an overwhelming fear of judgment and persecution if I said anything, or at least that’s what my mind was telling me.

I was even more embarrassed because as a coach and healer I knew that I had to do something even though I felt a piece of me was gone. I finally went to therapy and the authorities reclaim my power and start my healing process. I also decided to join a healing circle facilitated by my friend who is also a Shaman and when we would end the circle, she would say to me “Ms. Netta you need to love yourself harder and find yourself some compassion”. I would eventually get signs from the Universe such as yogi tea quotes on compassion and then one day I found an old sticky note that said “I Am Compassionate” that sign was more than a confirmation for me. Compassion is a must for our emotional, mental, physical, and spiritual health. Compassion is a necessity in this life to assist humanity to grow. When we cultivate compassion, we are honoring not only individually but collectively. Lacking compassion for yourself will show up lacking compassion for others as well.  Compassion allows us to seize judgment, criticism, fear and hate that is projected on to others from within. As we rise above these actions that are birthed from fear and ignorance, we clear the space to experience our true selves and bask in our inner peace. Compassion for self can take a form such as passive which can entail a warm bubble bath with candles lit in the bathroom to the assertive form of expressing your emotions and speaking up for yourself without judgment. Compassion is giving yourself room to grow and being objective to those nasty thoughts made by that inner critic. Compassion for yourself is also standing up for yourself and saying “No”! Compassion goes hand in hand with self-love and self-respect. You must re-evaluate who and what in your life that may be inflicting harm on you and that can be self-imposed as well.

In my journey, I have cut ties with a lot of people, but I have also cut ties with my old self as. I was living as a person that no longer served a purpose in my life. I was living as this wounded child and it was taking a toll on every area of my life. My persona could no longer stay with me and I had to re-heal again and really face the parts of myself that I rejected that I thought were so-called bad and not good enough. I had to stop being my own worst critic and find the compassion to give to that wounded little girl what she needed to feel safe again. I now find every way to be compassionate even through self-discipline. I know I must give myself breaks and give myself time to write out my emotions, spend some time out but also do things for others as well that may be going through their own life challenges. The true lesson of all that I have been through is that “I am real power”. I had the power to change my life and still move forward and proceed to get support and forgive again. That was true power I forgave my perpetrator and I’ve learned to forgive myself because I did the best I could at that moment and realizing this truth for me was my first step to self-compassion. It has made tremendous shifts in my life and I have a different perspective on compassion and the role it plays in my life. Compassion is key to all forms of healing in this life. Compassion is also a state of constant forgiveness because you can empathize with people on their own journey no matter how unconscious they are about their own path in life. I’ve come to realize that even though the worst traumatic experiences in my life had nothing to do with me personally, it had everything to do with the other person and the lack of power, love, compassion, and how unconscious they were in their actions. We have all been unconscious to some or maybe all our actions but that doesn’t mean we won’t face the consequences. This is where higher learning plays its role of us learning the lessons that life has to teach us and instead of thinking life is against us it’s for us to teach us more about ourselves and the views of others. So when you think about compassion know that it is the gift of beauty we give to ourselves and others when we feel unworthy and this gift illuminates the darkness that we need to nourish with love from within.

Learning To Love Myself

“How you love yourself is how you teach people to love you”. – Rupi Kaur

 

“I HATE YOU”! “I HATE YOU”! Were the words that bellowed from the depths of my wounded inner child. She was tired of all the suppression and repression of how I truly felt about my life, who I was or at least who I thought I was. She was too through with me. She was hurt, she was angry and resented me for the way I treated her. I was tired of the way that I passively lived my life and how I was giving up on myself, dreams but most of all my purpose. The choices I was making were not progressive and damn sure didn’t add to my happiness. I was living life the way that I thought I was supposed to. I was living my life according to other people’s rules and I resented them and my self for a choice that I was making, I was making choices to create a persona that made everyone else comfortable. This persona was a seeker of validation because deep inside I didn’t feel good enough. I had gone through experiences in life that seemed to validate that for me.

“THE CHOICES I WAS MAKING WERE NOT PROGRESSIVE AND DAMN SURE DIDN’T ADD TO MY HAPPINESS”

I was holding on to past pains and packing them in a special box and would unlock it when the Divine would tell me to let go and forgive and my response was to look at all this that I’ve been through and you want me to love myself! This person? This young woman who has been told she was wasn’t good enough, she was ugly, she wasn’t going to make it, she didn’t have what it takes to fulfill her dreams the same one who has had her heart stomped on in relationships. Yeah, all of that came up with my conversation with the Divine. I was going off on the Divine! I kept telling myself “I hate you and how all of my pain was for nothing. I couldn’t figure out what was it about myself that I needed to love. I was in my mind space that no longer served me, but I never understood how to release it with LOVE instead of JUDGEMENT! I’ve been judging myself all my life it was a habit I formed since childhood I never knew how to not criticize myself or judge myself. The Divine told me to release the self-hate. I felt as if I was dying inside because I wasn’t being true to myself. I wasn’t being honest with myself and I became sick of my own shit.

My inner child, she was to through because I allowed her voice to get lost, I ignored her when she said she wasn’t okay, ignored her when she told me she wasn’t comfortable in a situation, I ignored her when she told me she was hurting and I made her endure more unnecessary pain because I wanted to make everyone else feel good and happy because as long as everyone else was happy “ I was good”! “OH BOY”, here comes the cups filled with lies and distortions that will numb the pain of me not operating at my full potential. The lies of me not being enough until someone told me I was or validated what I was doing. These deep-seated lies were being purged from my eternal essence because the ultimate truth is I AM WORTHY! I was born worthy, it was an innate gift I was born with that was never to be measured by someone else’s values and beliefs. I am the only one who can measure my worth by how I think, feel, and act when it comes to myself. I had to learn and practice to feel the love from within and not look for the external forces to give me the green light for me to love myself. I can think highly of myself in a sense of being confident and looking at myself the way the Divine sees me because I am Divine myself. I act in ways that are loving to myself and not only self-care such as exercise, rest, grooming and the fun things but also when things get hard and I don’t feel or look my best, crossing those things off my list that I fear, self-discipline, acting on those dreams and goals, speaking up for myself, creating healthy boundaries, cutting off those people, places and things that no longer served me with love because they no longer served a purpose in my life.

Self-love is being committed to yourself no matter who, what, when, and how. Loving yourself flaws and all because you were made from perfection and there is nothing in this world that can alter that. Loving yourself is being your true self and standing up and fighting for yourself even when the majority is against you. Loving yourself when it gets rough because at the end of the day you start with you, and you will end with you so love it all.  Loving yourself also determines how others treat and love you. If you don’t love yourself then you will attract that energy to you, and you will go through a lesson to teach you that lesson to love yourself in whatever area that may be. Everything starts from within and that also includes love, we must bask in this eternal love so that we attract those who do the same. Love doesn’t mean perfection and it comes with its challenges, but it is worth it because it makes you grow and mature into someone you couldn’t have even imagined. Loving yourself is being true to you and that inner being who sees you in its image so why not love yourself? Unconditional radical love is key for the change that we want to see in the world because it starts with us, once you make this change within you will start to see it in your reality.
