Do you make decisions based on the applause they will get you? How do you decide what is true for you and for your highest good versus what you think others will like?
In today’s episode, we are joined by Megan Gillikin. Megan is a veteran wedding planner from The Planner’s Vault and the host of the Weddings for Real Podcast. She’s had some amazing business journeys from buying a business before she was ready to becoming a speaker to cultivating an amazing community of entrepreneurs in The Planner’s Vault. But all of that was based on a series of key decisions that she made and some that she wished she had made a little bit differently.
Let’s deep dive more into choices — how to make the best ones and how to make sure that you are always reaching for your highest good. Let’s go!
In this episode, you’ll learn:
Here’s a peek inside the episode:
[1:52] The Purpose-Driven Life
[5:25] Akashic Record Reading
[7:37] Mantra of the Day
[12:38] Burned out because of how I made decisions and who I made decisions for.
[13:54] Constantly assess the choices you made and if they align with your “why”.
[15:15] Protecting my time: Mondays and Fridays – no coaching or client calls.
[15:34] Review week on Friday: what worked and what needs to be adjusted.
[17:15] 30 minutes of daily adulting time – keeps me focused on other things.
[19:57] Always stay aligned with your why and you’ll never fall out of alignment.
[25:04] Recognize or determine your superpower/zone of genius and lean into it. Don’t try to be everything to everyone. Don’t spread yourself so thinly that you become a watered-down version of yourself.
[27:48] Leap before you think you’re ready.
[29:46] Insecurity, imposter syndrome, and inner criticism allow you to play the victim.
[32:34] Filter your time and energy into knowing we only have so many hours in a day. Be intentional about what you are saying “yes” and “no” to in business and in life.
[34:25] Stop making decisions in life, both professionally and personally, based on what others will think or applaud.
[38:18] Success is not by what others see on the outside, but by who you are on the inside.
