Lisa Nichols :: Breakthrough Specialist

I was recently blessed to share the company of Lisa Nichols.  Known as The Breakthrough Specialist, she transformed her own life from a broken spirit in an abusive relationship and is now passionately helping others achieve their own transformations.  She focuses her attention and energy on entrepreneurs, women & children.

Lisa has a beautiful soul and I’d like to share her thoughts on personal development and growth;

Recognise the value of partnerships:

The breakthrough specialist points out that the magic of partnerships is in the interdependency.  This is the most productive state between dependancy and independence.  Creating this environment enables you to walk the journey of your relationships with your life partner, children, family and friends.  Together you can acknowledge that you are co-creating and learning something that has never been experienced before.

Partnerships reveal opportunity for personal growth.  The way you manage conversations, events, circumstances can provide opportunity to become someone better.

All partnerships are not meant to last forever.  Some are a single moment experienced, others a lifetime. The majority last a season, which can be a month, a year or years.  The biggest difficulty we have is in recognising when a season is complete which makes it difficult to allow it come to it’s natural conclusion.  Accept as ‘complete’ rather than ‘over’, release and surrender to create far less resistance to the change.


Learn to serve from your overflow:

The breakthrough specialist suggests that if you have found your passions, and with that, your calling in life then your body, mind and soul need to be able to keep up with your life’s mission.  It is your responsibility to feel so good in your own self, in your own being so that you have overflow of energy to give in service.

When we get burned out it’s because we tend to serve others needs before our own so that it becomes a chore, tiring, uncomfortable and we resent having to do it.  Realise this; it’s not that you don’t love serving any more it’s just that you haven’t served your own basic needs before doing so (check out my post on Maslow’s hierarchy of needs).  Now, shift your mindset to one of responsibility – to look after yourself first.  Taking care of your basic needs of leisure, pampering, self care and time is a responsibility not a luxury.  Fill your own cup right up to full…….. when it’s full, keep going until it’s overflowing so that you find you’re serving from your saucer.  Learn what it takes for you to serve from your saucer so that you are always serving effortlessly from your overflow.

Consider this;  if you were on an airplane in an emergency and the gas masks dropped you would be expected to ensure you looked after yourself first so that you were in a capable state to care for others.  Make sense?


Identifying and accepting your monetary value:

If you can connect making money to your mission, magnetising your unique gifts then the value in that falls into place.  That’s why it’s important to focus on both Business Development & Personal Development, to maintain and service both simultaneously.  When you are connected to your own personal value through knowing your personal gifts you will create a business enabling you to serve with pleasure.

Selling or serving?  Consider them one in the same.  Keeping things simple; making a sale means that someone says ‘yes’ to something you are offering and a fiscal exchange is their acknowledgement that ‘I value what you do’.

Ask yourself the questions; what needs can I be a solution to? what problem can I be a answer to?  where can I bring joy? how can I package this so that people know that I am the answer?  Find the answers to these and you’ll know your added value.  When you get this right you’ll find that when you touch things they turn to gold, people want to be in your space more, you become a money magnet as real heart felt service leads to greater sales.

Always know that your net worth will never surpass your self worth; if your financial worth exceeds your perception of self worth you will not be comfortable with it and something will go awry.


Allowing yourself to succeed:

Many of our biggest mindset issues are around money and success.  Give yourself permission to experience success. If you remain shackled to a past of ‘nearly made it’s’, “slip ups’ and ‘failures’ then you sabotage your ability to unleash your capability.  You do have a personal capacity to think bigger and stand stronger.  A ‘No matter what!’  mindset doesn’t understand the language of excuses; fear, doubt, worry, blame.  You are in control.  You can administer choice.  You can decide your direction.

Lisa has experienced huge successes from where she started out.  Her life began in scarcity and fear.   She had to grow to be ready and accepting for each of the huge things that propelled her success forward.  When your subconscious sabotages what you are capable of you must keep believing in yourself.  Continuously expand your personal capacity to handle the abundance that comes your way with baby steps of acceptance and growth.

Lisa points out that the word intimacy can be heard as ‘In To Me I See’ and the breakthrough specialist is a huge advocate of the following 30 day excercise that connects you with who you were, are and yet to be.


30 day personal ‘In To Me I See’ excercise:

Stand in front of a mirror and say;

7 different things that your proud of ~ ‘Saz, I am so proud of you for……….’

7 different things you forgive ~ ‘Saz, I forgive you for………’

7 different things you commit to yourself ~ ‘Saz, I commit to you that I will……’

Doing this honours who you are today,  releases yourself from what you have unconsciously held yourself hostage to and commits to the person you are becoming.  Once you have let go of regret, blame, shame and anger then and only then you are ready for growth to occur.


One last take away from Lisa: Save your nuggets!  Always have a key take away from any learning experience so that you can draw on it when you need it in the future.  Have you taken any nuggets from Lisa?  Please let me know if you have……

Top 10 Newbie Internet Marketing Mistakes

A checklist to bookmark as you get started:

I was chatting with a friend last night.  I’m coaching her in her first Online Business venture.  There were 2 parts to the conversation, she was asking how to get startedTop 10 Mistakes by Newbie Online Business without wasting a whole heap of energy, time and money on stuff that was just noise, and I was wondering how I could give her some tips to get started without getting overwhelmed.  This was me also thinking about how on earth I was going to start getting all my knowledge across in my Blog.

She said; ‘just tell me what the biggest mistakes I could make are’ ……so I did, and she did me a favour as it’s helped me get started in helping you as well.

So here you go……I hope my list helps you.  If you’re not a newbie then pass it on to someone you would like to help.

Top 10 things NOT to do when your getting started:

10) Spamming social networks under the guise of ‘Networking’

Just don’t do it.  Seriously.  It’ suicide.  Spamming is where you post your opportunity or URL all over other peoples spaces. You’re not connecting with any one person or group to give them any value. It exposes zero communication skills.  It’s like entering someones home and spraying their walls with graffiti.  I certainly wouldn’t ever invite them to any future parties.  My door would be tight shut forever more.

9) Crying wolf in your email campaigns

Here’s another way to piss people off.  Have you received emails that say Urgent! Last Chance! Confidential! only to open and find that it wasn’t really the whole truth.  They’re obviously designed to grab your attention but they just insult your intelligence.  There are smarter ways to get people to open your mail that won’t damage your reputation or personal branding, and burning your list.  I’ll teach you.

8 ) Not targeting your market effectively

Some will tell you to build yourself a big list, even buy a big list.  The bigger the better.  Not so.  I’d rather have 10 valued connections who I know love what I do than 10,000 random maybe’s.  They trust me and value me so that when I actually have something to share with them, they are the first in line to buy from me.  Your message should be crystal clear.  Precision targeted marketing will give you a better prospect match, higher conversion rates which ultimately results in more income.

7) Trying to cut corners & save money in the wrong places

If you are committed to your life as an Internet Entrepreneur then you should take the time to learn about the tools of your trade.  Find out from other people what they use and why.  Notice what successful people use.  Google product reviews.   Things like Blogs, Auto-responders etc. have different functionality that you should consider in line with where you want to take your Online Business. Don’t just buy the cheapest to get started as you may be shooting yourself in the foot.  You may ultimately outsource, you may hire others to do piece work for you, but you should have enough knowledge to make informed decisions.

6) Being too attached to your desired outcome

If your focus is always on what you want rather than how you can help people then you’re likely to repel them.  You’ll come across as needy instead of having a higher purpose that’s in their interest.  You should come from a place of wanting to serve.  You should trust that you will attract the people with genuine interest in what your doing and then work out what value you can give them right away to retain their following.  People will take action (with your help) when they are ready.

5) Give Google more attention than people

Do some SEO (sales engine optimisation) and then get on with connecting with people.  I know the internet is a space connected by links and Google ‘owns’ how people find you through those links but seriously, you can give this far too much energy.  Your energy should be used in connecting with people to spread your message.  Provide great content and great value  and people will find you.

4) Isolating yourself

I seriously suggest you get yourself  1) a community of like minded people….2) a Mentor or Mentors….3) a Coach.  Being an Internet Entrepreneur can be inherently isolating.  After all it just takes you and your laptop to get up an running – that’s what’s so great.  But you’ll only get so far before you start to experience obstacles and hurdles that will wear you down.  Don’t try to go it alone, you’ll waste time and money doing lots of things you don’t need to and risk throwing in the towel.  Connect with like minded people, join networking groups and build yourself a mastermind to plug the skill sets your lacking.

3) Not investing daily in your own personal growth

Any wealthy person that you meet (I don’t just mean financially) will practice some type of intentional personal growth.  Successful people thrive on expanding their comfort zone, they will seek out challenges that help them to grow as individuals. Adverse situations present them with opportunity.  Set backs become a chance to review and do better.  They don’t perceive failure as relevant to their situation because all circumstances advance their learning and therefore their growth.  They live life on a higher positive note as they choose daily outcomes and design the results they want.  I highly recommend you take steps every day to evolve.  If you’re not evolving you’re standing still.

2) Failing to lead

Have clarity of purpose and evangelise what it is that you do.  BE what you believe in.  DO what you believe in.  HAVE what you believe in.  As an entrepreneur you are in the driving seat.  You took a decision to do what you’re doing.  You should know where your’re going & why your going there.  If you don’t feel you’ve found the passion to lead then the time may not be right for you……keep searching within yourself, it will come.

1) Waiting until everything is ‘right’ and not taking ACTION

This is the No.1 area where people let themselves down in my book.  The world is full of frustrated genius’ who can’t understand why they never made it.  Oh, and there’s those who invest in the courses and the biz opps but never see any benefit through them.  Your circumstances aren’t right,  you don’t know enough yet, your website isn’t ready – it’s all procrastination. There’s a reason why only 3% of the population ‘make it’……that’s because they take MASSIVE ACTION.  They don’t just start, they stay committed – taking persistent and consistent ACTION.  They begin with their end in mind, stay unwaveringly focused on their passion and purpose, and take every little step it takes to get them there.

Well there you go!…….my TOP 10 DO NOT DO’s.  I hope they help you today.
