Are you over or under investing in yourself?

By Lindsay Hindle | Uncategorized

A topic that comes up a lot in my work with clients is the topic of balance.

There are many different ways being in and out of balance and being in and out of alignment with ourselves that affects our ability to manifest what we want in our business and life.

An aspect of balance that is really interesting to look at is whether you are over or under investing in your mental, spiritual, emotional or business growth that would help you get to your goals faster with more abundance created in the process.

Getting someplace faster, often means pausing and slowing down. And I have just the steps to help you figure out what you need, called the ALIGNMENT  INVENTORY.

Figure it out: The Alignment Inventory (step one)

Follow the prompts below to figure out where you may be over investing or under investing in the things that serve you. And remember , what serves you is what helps you be in alignment and take aligned ACTION.

On one sheet of paper think about and write down:

👉 The person you want to be (think fill in the blank “I want to be a person who…”)
👉 The idea that won’t leave you alone
👉 Receiving more of _____in 2021 would feel like a ✨ BIG SOUL YES ✨
👉 What you committed (or wished) to create in your life last January 2020

On another sheet of paper do an inventory of:

👉How many downloads, books, DIY courses, coaching you’ve purchased over the last 3 years to help yourself BE or receive those things and total up the cost.
👉What the topics and themes of those things you got or bought are
👉How many and which ones you 100% finished/implemented
👉How many WINS you manifested in your career, biz or life because you followed through with feet on the ground

Then compare the two sheets:

❤️ Does the reality align with the vision?
🧡 Are you following through on the things that the “person you want to be” would be finishing or implementing?
💛 Did the things help open you to receiving your abundance and what your soul finds meaning in?
💚 Did the things help you create solid confidence in your abilities, deeper commitment, more momentum and thus the impact and income you wanted?

Doing this inventory will help you see…

That some of you might have been over eager and kind of overinvesting in ALL THE THINGS, but maybe not the right things for you and ended up with a pile of stuff  you’ve never finished or implemented, and it has never actually served you.

That you may be one of the  under investors who hold back out of fear or self-doubt. You may be part of the group of people who never quite feel worthy or feel worried that somehow they’re taking away from their family, they’re taking away from other people when they invest in themselves.

Time to get honest so you can get aligned

Take some time and do the alignment inventory exercise that I have put in the post, which is how you can start to  know what you really need to feel fulfilled and abundant in 2021.

Knowing if you are under-investing or are you over-investing will help you become really intentional with WHERE AND WHAT you decide to spend on yourself.

Investing in yourself, your growth, your business growth, your spiritual growth, your physical enhancement, like being healthy and balanced is so important, but you want to be doing it at the right place at the right time for the right things for you.

And especially not investing in the things that in comparison wise to someone else seem like they’re the best thing.

But That’s a whole other conversation!

Let’s start with this first step 💜

Turning Fear Into Belief

By Lindsay Hindle | Uncategorized

There was a time in my life where my main desire was just to have a few consecutive days of happiness in a row.
That simple thing – feel happy- felt out of reach.
So I made a vow to direct all my attention into this one word: BELIEVE
I scribbled this word on the back of a hastily grabbed, slightly worn envelope and I tacked it up where I could see it every day, multiple times a day.
At first, I had to start where I was and choose: “Believe I have the capacity to be happy again”.
I was really scared it wasn’t possible. That I was defective or incapable.
Eventually though, as I learned to access my inner abundance and lived into experiences of wholeness and true self love, 
And let myself DISCOVER my world from an unlimited perspective of allowing (not forcing),
And learned to trust my empathy, care for my sensitive energy, and got efficient with ways of doing things that FIT me…this commitment to a word, led to a practice of choosing that has been responsible for so much abundance in my life:
“On those days when it feels impossible or you question whether you are worthy you will choose relentless self-belief.”
I’ve never stopped making that choice. And I never will stop.
Because my ego will always be with me, attached, cautious, and protective. Each bigger thing I attempt naturally triggers this ego response.
So I still choose to be committed to the practice of relentless self-belief,because just like finding balance in life, I don’t think it’s something you just suddenly have forever and never have to work at again.
I still have this old envelope. And I’ll never throw it away.
It reminds me of the progress of belief and what can happen when we just keep practicing what we choose to commit to – no matter what.

That me back then, could not have even envisioned where I am today;

  • offering programs to the world built from my soul & channeling the Universe (rather than what I was “trained” to do)

  • building a community of highly sensitive change makers

  • creating 10K months and negotiating exclusive global partnerships for my coaching services

  • guest speaking on summits and podcasts

And so much more!!!

That me back then was about to throw away ALL the self-help books ( because she thought “she didn’t have what it took”) and RESIGN HERSELF to smallness.
But she didn’t. That Lindsay, even as small as she felt, did the right thing to get MOMENTUM…she got committed to more than her fear.
And now it’s your turn . Name what you’re after. What do you want to manifest more than your fear? What is one word you can choose to fuel your path from this day forward? 🔥✨💜

Who Is Lindsay, Confidence & Follow-through mentor?

By Lindsay Hindle | Uncategorized

Hi, I’m Lindsay, confidence and follow-through mentor for ambitious, highly sensitive, perfectionist-prone humans who want more out of life.

Back in 2014, before I discovered my soul aligned ambition, I felt sick to my stomach…

My branding business was booming, I had a life coach, a shelf of personal development books, and a comfy life; only I was devastated and ashamed of feeling half-hearted in my work, distracted, erratic, overwhelmed and unhappy.

That’s when I realized the success I was chasing belonged to the person I USED to be; the ME before motherhood, before my mental breakdown, before I rebuilt and awakened my WHOLE true self.

So I walked away from my biz, became a Unitarian Universalist Lay Chaplain, ran a half-marathon, started and closed 2 more businesses that were ALMOST right for me, and then FINALLY surrendered to my calling.

Now, I have a global business built around my #1 ALIGNED passion: helping others be brave, claim their purpose, manifest abundance and drive divine impact in the world – without driving themselves into the ground.

I believe the world needs heart-led humans like you. Not the sanitized and “painfully perfected” you…but the REAL you; because your messiness is also your medicine.

It’s in our seeing, our being, and our doing where we get to believe so hard our faith cracks open to our truth and a truly affirmed life spills forth:

We get to live in the abundance of all that we are.

Here are some options on how we can get started with that together:
