How to Make Progress When You Want to Give Up

Creating The Impossible, Inspiration, Personal Story
Kayla MacArthur

I’m currently stuffed into a sunken arm chair facing shelves and shelves of books. They’re faded and worn, some crumpled and torn at the edges. If I’m lucky, a soft, cool breeze floats in through the window to my left. It carries with it conversation and a tinkle of silverware from the tables below. If I listen hard enough, I can hear the Sawmill River rushing over its rocky bed. For quite some time now, I’ve wanted to visit the Book Mill. It’s quaint allure has called me closer and as I sit here, finally here, I can feel the magic and the charm I hoped it would have. In...

The Art of Getting Unstuck: Coming Home to Who You Want to Be

Inspiration, Raise Your Vibration
Kayla MacArthur

I carefully lowered myself into a small, shallow pool. It was worn in the smooth rock that spread over the Earth like butter. The water was warm and soft on my skin. Carefully lying back, I found the perfect nook to rest my head in. I took a deep breath and let my hands float to the surface of the water. Before me, sweeping blue mountains rose into rounded peaks. A river rushed forward, bubbling it’s way around boulders and rocks that dotted the bank. The air was pure and fresh with a hint of pine floating off the forest that flanked each side of the river. I sunk deep...

Clarity in Cabo: Why I’m Going Part-Time in My Coaching Business

Inspiration, Personal Story
Manifest More Success

Nothing can touch the bliss I feel. Even as we’re thousands of feet in the air flying home, a sense of peace has settled in my bones and I’m luxuriating in it like a bath. For the past four months, I’ve felt eerily lost. I thought that because my business had finally reached a certain level of success, I’d never feel this way again.. It seems, though, that no matter where you are on the journey, there are still stretches of discomfort where creativity dries up, utter exhaustion sets in, and the cash that flowed freely before, starts to slow. I’ve been patiently surrendering into this barren void and like...

What Tulum Taught Me About Manifesting More Success

Inspiration, Personal Story, Self-Care
Kayla MacArthur

It took me THREE DAYS to completely turn off. In one of the most beautiful paradises I’ve ever been to, it took me three whole days to leave the computer locked in the tent and to pack the personal development books back in my suitcase. Three whole days—lost to the illusion that one can be “on” while simultaneously turning “off.” Tulum, with all of its beauty and magic, taught me how to relax again. And I’m not talking about the kind where you kid yourself by having one foot in and one foot out—I’m talking FULL ON RELAXATION. The kind where you melt into one of the canvas beds propped...

Three Powerful Shifts From Rich Litvin’s Coaching Intensive

Inspiration
Rich Litvin

Before we left the Intensive to go back to our lives and a world that didn’t expand like we did, Rich encouraged us to sit with our experiences and our insights—to keep them to ourselves and let them shift how we show up in the world. He encouraged us to let people FEEL our expansion, rather than talk about it. While I have every intention of honoring his wisdom, I also know myself well enough to know that my expansion integrates more deeply from turning around and teaching. While I can’t possibly fit the magnitude of what I experienced into a single blog post, I can share the most powerful...

The Best Tool You Already Have to Manifest More Success

Inspiration, Manifesting Mindset, Personal Story
Kayla MacArthur

I was speaking with a Client last week about her discomfort with the need to prove herself. For much of her career, she’s felt the drive to continuously learn and gain more knowledge so that she could appear as a true expert. While this isn’t necessarily a bad thing—I was curious about the motivation behind her drive to learn. What was it? As we dove deeper into the issue, she told me a story about a fellow colleague who had caught a potentially serious incident with one of his Clients before it could get worse. At this point, we were getting somewhere. Next, I asked her how her colleague caught...

The One Critical Mindset Shift You Need to Have to Manifest More Success

Inspiration, Manifesting Mindset, Personal Story
Manifest More Success

$5,000 PER MONTH. That was my definition of success when I first set out to do what I love. If I didn’t make $5,000 in the first month of my business, I was a failure. And so, when I managed to arrange seven sales conversations that first month and I received a “no” from each potential Client, it left me with a whopping $0 earned and a feeling of complete DEVASTATION. I was so discouraged that I fell into what I call, the deep, dark hole of entrepreneurial despair. Instead of focusing on the fact that I somehow arranged SEVEN sales conversations in the first month of my business, I...

How Not to Live Your Life {Unless You Want to Be Successful AND Free}

Inspiration, Personal Story

Today, I’m writing to you from a cute little coffee shop in North Conway. The sky is bright and clear. The air is crisp and freshly fallen leaves blanket the sidewalks. The colors are unreal. Brilliant yellows. Blazing reds. Bright oranges. Being so far from home, tucked away before sweeping mountain views, I can’t help but revel in how grateful I am for my life. For where I am in this exact moment. It was only three years ago that I was a tiny spec on the map of America, puttering my way through the lush beauty of the state of Oregon on the road trip that would change my...

How to Activate Your Personal Power to Manifest More Success

Inspiration, Manifesting Mindset
Manifest More Success

During the transition from July to August of this year, something shifted within me. Similar to how a switch is flipped on and the room before you fills with light, a switch flipped on within me and activated a part of my personal power that was previously persisting in darkness. When I finally raised my Coaching prices, in many ways, I stepped up the game I was playing, but none more powerful than in my actual Coaching. It’s hard to describe the exact shift that occurred, but what I do know is that I became fearless. What I do know is that I started to trust my intuition and my...

How I Manifested My First $5K Month {and It’s Not What the Gurus Are Telling You}

Inspiration, Manifesting Mindset, Personal Story
Manifest More Success

This is a momentous moment. I feel it so deeply. Right down to the marrow in my bones. Celebration, gratitude, awe, happiness, pure magic—all of it. I almost can’t believe it, but at the same time, I really can. After all, I worked for this. For 20 months before this moment, I worked for this. And I finally did it: I manifested my first $5K month! {$5K meaning cash in the bank, not projected sales} Holy crap. The iconic $5,000 month. The money goal that every new or struggling entrepreneur seems to strive for. The kind of money goal that makes financial freedom feel attainable. The kind of money goal...
