When you are in business doing what you love, it is natural to fall in love with your clients and their projects. When they put their projects out into the world and make a difference, you cannot help but feel proud of them. Their projects remind you of your contribution, the difference you are making and the important work you are doing in the world.
By the time they hire you they are ready for change. You don’t get attached to their success or rescue them into achieving. You believe in their ability and personal power to make a change in their lives. You hold the vision, believe in them, support them with your insights while they create their own ‘ah… ha!’ moments. You work in synchronicity and miracles unfold.
When they are excited about their work, about your relationship with them, they become a very important part of your life and that’s when falling in love with a client happens.
I had an experience of client love recently that I cannot help but share with you. My beautiful client, who is making a movie on forgiveness, surprised me with wonderful gifts in the mail. Something for the whole family! I marveled at her thoughtfulness and the choice of her gifts couldn’t have been better. She sent a book by Dr. Wayne Dyer for my 9 year old, an Eckhart Tolle book for me and healing stones that say forgiveness, gratitude, and laugh on them. And a beautiful card written with so much love.
I am in gratitude and deeply touched.
I would encourage you to put your gifts out into the world and not hold back. You don’t know whose life you may touch, who in return will touch your own life.
Keep the flow of giving and receiving going in the world of exchanging goods and services. Money is just an energy that defines the value and commitment of the contract we get into when we serve our clients. Don’t get too attached to it, yet not so distracted that you compromise your value. Keep abundance in mind when making a difference and you will find an abundance of ways to help others, maybe through your newsletters or products and packages.
Who do you need to serve? What is holding you back? Do you need to partner with someone to support you? I would encourage you to express your God given glory so that you too can make a difference in someone’s life. Receive love for yourself in return for your work and give it back too!
