You’ve been to the circus. You’ve seen the act…
And you’re like…seriously, how did that clown juggle five chainsaws, three monkeys, a platypus, nine avocados and a partridge in a pear tree?!
Would you believe me if I told you she did it by simply feeling…no….BELIEVING, she could do it?
Like so many people out there, you may think you can’t add one more thing to your plate.
I’m here to tell you that you can juggle monkeys too.
You can have diversity, not just in your life, but in your business and your bank account. And it can be easy.
Having multiple income streams not only strengthens your bank account, it boosts your confidence.
It makes you less dependant on one source of prosperity and opens up a world of potential.
Cue FREEDOM by George Michael!
So if having multiple income streams is so darn great, why do so few people actively create them?
Well it all comes back to juggling monkeys. You might be worried about starting something new and afraid of failing before you’ve even begun.
I was just like you, until…
I decided to learn how to juggle.
After law school, I got a job at a boutique bankruptcy firm and practiced law there for about five years.
It wasn’t for me (to put it lightly).
So I decided to become a Pilates and yoga teacher.
But getting paid by the hour regardless of how hard I worked wasn’t my jam either.
I started hosting teacher training sessions in Boulder, Colorado, and instead of taking home an hourly wage, I was seeing tens of thousands of dollars flow into my bank account regularly…who knew teaching downward dog could be so lucrative!
I started teaching yoga and pilates through private lessons, group lessons, creating cleanses and detox programs, online programs and so much more.
All of a sudden, not only was I changing lives and doing what I loved— I had multiple income streams instead of multiple anxiety attacks over finding enough money to put gas in my car.
I decided I wanted more.
That’s when I started working with doTERRA and spreading the essential oil love. Essential oils changed my life in more ways than one.
And now, the love of my life can retire from his real estate job if he wants to.
We don’t need to stress over buying organic veggies.
We no longer need to stress about money. Period.
And maybe you’re thinking, Hayley, that sounds like a dream but where do I even begin?
Well first, if you’re scared of starting a new endeavor, ask yourself, what are you really afraid of?
Is it failure?
Guess what…you wouldn’t feel afraid if you didn’t believe you might fail.
Oooooo, did you get the tinglies there?
Failure…is it really that bad? What’s the worst that could happen?
I’ve failed sooo many times! And my mistakes have cost me money. But if I didn’t fail, I wouldn’t have learned some awesome life lessons.
Let’s tell our fears to take a hike.
Instead, listen to a podcast, do some research, talk to your mentor, do a Google search, read a book, and transform your mindset…
If you believe it’s possible, you’ll figure it out.
But on the flipside, if you’re presented with an opportunity but you keep repeating thoughts to yourself like…
I’m way too busy.
I don’t know what I’m doing.
I’ve tried in the past and it hasn’t worked so why try again?
Then no, you won’t be able to find the freedom that comes along with having multiple income streams.
But let’s say the same opportunity comes up and you BELIEVE that you’re totally capable of adding more abundance to your life. ⇐ The only thing that has to change to get here is your mindset.
When you operate from an abundance mindset, you unlock the doors to profit potential! You start moving, researching, and doing what it takes.
Then boom, before you know it you’ve created a new stream of income to support you in living the lifestyle you want.
If you let that negative self-talk win, nothing awesome is ever going to happen.
Maybe on top of becoming jugglers, let’s become electricians too.
And start rewiring our brains to set ourselves up for success.
Juggling is possible. And it can be so much fun.
