Happy New Year Beautiful Soul!
So, I know it's been a while since you have heard from me. There are some very good reasons I promise you. I've been taking a much needed sabbatical. Much needed for my health and for clarity.
You see, a month ago I will admit that I was in a pretty dark place. On the outside things seemed to be fine but on the inside my outlook was pretty bleak. I felt completely lost, confused, and let down by the universe.
Not a pretty picture...if you ask me.
During that time, I posted some pretty triggering things and people were up in arms about it. I questioned things like the coaching industry, the law of attraction, and more. Why? Because I was questioning those things myself.
But most of all, I had reached the point where I was totally and completely fed up with what I was seeing in the personal development industry.
I don't know about you, but I was so tired of the friend requests only to sell me something a minute later...of the advice where the energy behind it screamed "please hire me!"....of marketing pitches all about wealth and travel...of feeling like there was no integrity or sense of honor left in the industry I loved.
I would log on to social media and my newsfeed would be filled with people all sounding the exact same, using the same language and desperately trying to sell their products or services. The worst part....I know that a majority of these people are good people, with good hearts, who just want to make a life for themselves and those they love.
On a more personal note, I had reached the point in my business where I realized how far I had strayed from my truth. I had put the pursuit of money above serving my audience and it left me feeling completely depleted, frustrated and empty inside.
You see, interestingly enough, I started 2017 with my main intention being to remove my money blocks once and for all.
Sounds great right?!
Well, the universe definitely had a different idea than I did about what that would entail....details are for another post since it's a long story ;)
Overall, I realized something when I decided to walk away from my business and take a long break from an industry that seemed to be completely moving in the wrong direction.....I realized that the real reason I was so miserable was because money never brings you the happiness you desire....yes...let's pause for a moment and let that sink in....
I know that it is totally contrary to the messages being spouted online at the moment. Money manifesting seems to be the hot topic....but let me tell you something....I've manifested all the money I need and then some...and guess what? I was miserable.
What those marketing pitches, carefully crafted images of luxury, and posts aren't telling you is that yes...you can have anything you want...BUT it means nothing and will not suddenly bring you happiness, contentment and peace.
There are always more coaches to invest in, programs to buy, cars, vacations, and experiences to upgrade. IT NEVER ENDS.
However, this is not meant to leave you hanging without an answer. You are probably going, "OK Megan, well just freaking great! Are you saying I just am going to be miserable no matter what?"
Don't worry <<First Name>>. I'm not going to leave you hanging here.
You see, I have a theory....and one that I think will solve two different but important problems.
I believe the coaching and personal development industry needs reforming in a big way.....so many of us have lost sight of the true purpose behind these teachings and have become so money focused that we lose our way. (whether or not we even realize it at the time.)
I also believe that there is a way to have it all....WITH the happiness, joy and true fulfillment desired.
That is why I'm conducting an experiment. I'm completely shaking things up and doing things differently....and yes...that means a new business as well. Now, before you get all defensive and think I'm here to sell you something...I'm not.
This experiment is one of service. I plan on actively serving you. Yes, bringing you nothing but helpful tips, advice, real talk about lessons I've learned and more. No sales pitches.
I truly believe that by acting in this way...hopefully my actions will help start a revolution in the coaching industry. One that helps others take a step back and truly examine their motives. One that helps others take a deep look at their why....and perhaps inspires them to come back to service and away from the glamour, luxury and money-focused life currently idealized.
I am on a mission. And I would love it if you would join me.
I've made some mistakes and learned from them. I'm here to serve and speak my truth so that I may help as many of you shine your light as possible.
I'm here to change lives...not to focus on the amount of zeros in my bank account....because at the end...the lives you changed for the better are all that truly matters.
P.S. Stay on the lookout for my new updated branding for Simply Megan V and I would LOVE it if you would join me in the High-Vibe Freedom Sisterhood! I know it's been a bit dead as of late, but that is where I will be doing A LOT of service and would hate for you to miss it! Let's revamp it into the high vibe space it was always meant to be!
