“Who should I be” versus “what should I do”
Andrea feels that in life there is a lot of emphasis on doing. Traditional business advice is all about doing. Instead of focusing on doing Andrea says your foundation should be built on who you’re being. Are you being magnetic? Are you being engaging? Are you a joy to be around? She believes you should be the kind of person you want to do business with.
One of the first questions she asks her clients is: “What’s your ‘why’ and how are you honoring it?” She often finds that people either have no idea what their why is OR they know what it is but aren’t honoring it. Honoring it is just getting to the core of why things are important to you—and bringing it into your business.
People can see through you if you’re putting on a veneer of how you think you should be. Andrea felt she was leaving herself out of her business. When she pivoted and only offered services that aligned with her purpose, her business began to thrive. Authenticity took her business to another level.
Shift your mindset with meditation and affirmation
Do you have moments when you need to shift your perspective? Andrea points out that you need to implement in the moment crisis strategies. After all, we can’t all go sit on a mountaintop and meditate when stuff happens in life. Andrea notes that you can take 5 minutes and use a simple affirmation to help you deal with what you’re going through:
- “Everything always works out for me.”
- “I am divinely guided and protected.”
- “Peace begins with me.”
You also want to remember that some business isn’t meant for you. She notes that entrepreneurs get sucked into feeling they have to win every piece of business. But Andrea firmly believes there is a reason some things don’t work out: “Getting the business is divine. Not getting the business is divine.”
There’s something else that Andrea recommends implementing to change the trajectory of your every day—listen to find out what it is.
What is Andrea’s HOST method?
The HOST Method plays on Andrea’s background. It’s the concept of being able to be a host in your own life or a guest at someone else’s party. When you’re a guest you don’t get a say on the food or the music. When you’re the host, you have a say in everything. It’s also an acronym:
- H = Honor your why
- O = Own who you are
- S = Shift your perspective
- T = Take inspired action
When you find clarity on your why and own it fully, you’ll naturally start to take notice when limiting beliefs and self-doubt begin to creep in. That’s when you use techniques to shift your perspective (prayer, meditation, affirmations, visualizations, moving your body, spending time in nature, etc.). Do whatever you need to shift back into being who you are. Take inspired action from that place of clarity.
Andrea notes that above all you should know that you deserve all the success in the world. There is a reason that you have a desire to do something. Give yourself the permission to go for it and shine your light.
