“Putting yourself first is not selfish. Quite the opposite. You must put your happiness and health first before you can be of help to anyone else.” ~ Simon Sinek
Limitless Freedom Method
You’re here today because most likely you’re living your less-than-best life. And that’s okay. Because we can fix that.
I have developed a methodology called the Limitless Freedom Method.
The main goal of the Limitless Freedom Method is to help you reconnect to your inner-self so that you can pinpoint exactly what you want and create the right mindset to manifest your dreams.
This is a revolutionary way to experience freedom in the most spectacular kind of way.
Within this methodology is 10 easy-to-apply principles. Today we’re going to go over Principle #1, How to Start Showing Up for Yourself.
How To Start Showing Up For Yourself
So how do we start showing up for ourselves? You know, it comes down to one simple thing. You need to put yourself first. You can never reach your goals if you don’t put yourself first.
Okay, let me give you an example.
When I was a young stay-at-home mom, and my three girls all went into elementary school for the first time I went home to a quiet house and poured myself a cup of coffee and said, “Now, what?”
And then I started to think, well, who am I? You know, I’ve been so busy being there for my girls that I don’t even know what “more” looks like for me.
What do I want? What do I want to do for the next 15 years or even better, for the rest of my life?
I had lost my way for many years, and didn’t even know how to start to show up for myself?
Here’s What I Figured Out
Here’s what I figured out. The only way to start showing up for myself was to put my needs above everybody else’s. Does that make sense?
In other words, I needed to put myself first. When I fulfilled my needs, I was better prepared and equipped to show up for others. But if I was depleted, I didn’t have the energy to show up at all.
Once I started to put my needs first, I was able to connect with my true inner-self and quickly discovered what I wanted for my life.
It’s amazing how one small change can start you on a journey that manifests into something amazing, isn’t it?
How Does That Show Up For You?
So how does that show up for you? If you’re an exhausted mom, it might be hiring a babysitter so you get time for yourself.
If you own your own business it might be hiring a virtual assistant to do the stuff that you don’t typically like to do so that you have more time to create and do the things that you enjoy doing.
If you’re an overwhelmed, personal development junkie like I used to be, this might require you to NOT read another book, but instead apply what you’ve already learned and master it so that growth can happen.
It’s about taking action, not just adding “one-more-thing” that you’re “supposed to do” to live a fulfilling life.
Showing up for yourself is putting yourself first. I can’t say that enough.
So, let me share another story with you.
When You Stop Doing What You Love…
I have a girlfriend; her name is Julie. Julie would do everything under the sun for anybody, whether it be tending to her kids every need, going overboard to make sure her husband’s needs were met (even when he could easily do it for himself) or whether it was helping her friends with every request you could imagine.
Bottom line, she was all over the place and she was EXHAUSTED.
She even lost her ability to be creative. She loved making custom handmade jewelry, but she no longer had the energy to do the things she loved. She was putting herself out there for so many others and stopped putting herself first.
When Julie came to me, she was exhausted and unhappy. She knew that she needed to make some changes but didn’t know how.
Behind A Struggle Is A Rebirth Of One’s Self
So, I asked her if she’d be willing to take a step back and look at the whole picture. I informed her that behind a struggle is a rebirth of one’s self.
She worked her way unknowingly through my Limitless Freedom Method and was able to reconnect with herself and start showing up for herself.
She put herself first and guess what happened? You guys, when she showed up for herself and her needs were met, she was better equipped to be there for her family, herself, and for her friends but only on her terms.
Julie was able to set boundaries (we’ll be tackling boundaries later in another principle) and put her needs first and this was the key to Julie’s success.
And guess what she’s doing now you guys? She’s fulfilling her dream of being a new entrepreneur doing exactly what she loves to do, creating custom jewelry and custom gifts to share with the world. Isn’t that amazing?
So, this is exactly what can happen when you put yourself first.
When Everything Begins To Fall Into Place
I’m excited to dive through the rest of the 10 principles with you. Principle #1 is so important because nothing can happen until you start showing up for yourself.
And how do you show up for yourself? It’s simple. You put yourself first. Once you put yourself first, everything else will begin to fall into place.
