**Based on a true story**
What happens when your business is working just the way you want it to? When the right clients are coming in and paying you the right money to do the right work, right when you want them to? You do the happy dance, right?
Well, you do the happy dance if you realise that’s exactly what’s happening...
Recently, one of my clients was consistently posting great reports back to me about how the changes she’d made to her business were working–she had more of the right clients, paying her the right way she wanted them to, doing the right work... you get the idea. But instead of doing the happy dance she was, well, wondering what had happened.
She was actually wondering "Is this it?" **which of course is a line of questioning that very often triggers the ‘Thing’ search in the first place, so is something to think about. But when I reflected back that actually she had spent so long with things not quite working the way she wanted them to (she’d been in business for 10 years) that actually, maybe, everything working perfectly was so different she didn’t realise this is where she was, so it felt unnerving–it was too ‘easy’.
Think about this for a moment (in case you’re having those "Is this it?" thoughts). Do you have the business you've always wanted? The right team? The right clients? The right income? etc... Essentially, is everything ‘working’ and everything seeming right? Because if you do and you’re ‘wondering’ what just happened, it might be that you worked it all out! If it has been a while getting to this point, and your default state is struggle and ‘more to do’, it might be a very strange feeling when everything just starts working like it’s supposed to...
When we realised this was perhaps the case, the next option of course is to create something new and exciting in the ‘space’, safe in the knowledge that everything else was taking care of itself in the business. Again, if you’re used to creating from a place of ‘fixing’, this will seem odd too but it’s the perfect place to grow a business from.
