Paul Zelizer is an EFT practitioner and a mindset and success coach with a Masters degree in counseling psychology. He noes dedicates his time to helping spiritual entrepreneurs grow their business and reach their dreams.
In today’s interview, Paul tells us the three ways to become a better leader as an entrepreneur, and explains to us just how incredibly relevant and deep the relationship between our internal state is to what is happening or available to us in the outside world.
The relationship between our internal state and what is happening or available to us on the outside is much, much deeper then most popular [spiritual] leaders are willing to talk about.
First I become aware of my own state, and then I become aware of what is going on in the nervous systems of the people around me.
All marketing is just a steady, loving presence in the marketplace. Show up, and do it lovingly and steadily, and really let people feel your presence with clarity and conviction…and beautiful things happen.
When we really go deep and we find our alignment, and discover our path, and we start to say “yes”…even if it is scary…the universe has this way [of showing you signs], sometimes it was a feather that showed up on the path, sometimes it was just sitting in a coffee shop and somebody was talking about the exact that I was trying to figure out. Or, this job that was absolutely perfect for where I was, that floated me for a year, and allowed me to start my business in some kind of sane and stable way. That is an example of what synchronicity has looked like in my life.
I really resonated with Paul when he shared with us that he made the “safe” choice to stay with a job that was making him exhausted, and not listed to his “inner nudging” and desire to become a coach. A few years later, his whole world crashed around him and the transition to coaching was much more difficult, although at that point the “safe” job was gone. It can be so hard to leave a job that is making us unhappy, and the transition to another career (while you are still in the sucky job) can also be challenging. Paul offers a solution, and it is based on his own experience. He understood that he had to deepen his own mindfulness practice and he understood that if he became aligned with his purpose he would be taken care of. He asked the universe for a solution and, two weeks later, he was offered an amazing job that he liked and enabled him to make the transition to building his coaching career with dignity. I think I’m going to meditate more!
