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...

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 a Lack of Motivation Really Means & What to Do About It

Personal Story, Raise Your Vibration
Manifest More Success

It rained in Massachusetts for a month. Every day was cloudy, cold, and bleak. Winter was clinging desperately, digging its heels into the fresh soil of Spring. While it would have been easy to blame my lack of motivation on Winter’s inability to surrender, I knew deep down that my energetic rut wasn’t about the weather, but rather—it was the same old pattern coming back for more. The pattern you think you’ve healed, only to have it show up on your doorstep wrapped in different paper. For a good majority of my life, I’ve struggled with cycling through energetic highs and lows. The highs are always great. Who doesn’t love...

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...

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...

What is Your Anchor?

Personal Story, Raise Your Vibration, Self-Care
Kayla MacArthur

Pursuing and living your calling is one of the highest forms of WAKING UP. When you’re anchored in the world by your calling, you feel a sense of fulfillment that is no match to what any relationship, any drug, or any amount of money from a soul-sucking job could provide. I know this because I’ve experienced it myself. There was a time in my life when I was anchored in the world not by my calling, but by the men I dated. They WERE MY WORLD and I let my life revolve around them. I let them be my purpose—to the point where I became obsessed. So obsessed that I...

I AM NOT YOUR SAVIOR

Personal Story
Kayla MacArthur

When I first stepped off the traditional career path to do what I love, I had this skewed idea of what Coaching could really do. I knew Coaching was powerful, but I also thought that Coaching could guarantee results. I thought that Coaches possessed magical guidance that would poof me into the reality I dreamed about—that just because I invested money into a program, meant that I would receive the results the program promised. How could you blame me though, when I didn’t have a guide to warn me about inflated marketing? Or about multi-million dollar Coaches who were way out of integrity? I had no one. Not a friend....

Are You Trying to Be Like Everyone Else When it Comes to Doing What You Love?

Manifesting Mindset, Personal Story
Manifest More Success

Maybe it feels safer that way. Maybe it makes more sense when you really think about it. Maybe it’s easier because then you don’t have to show people who you really are, or even deeper yet—you don’t have to admit who you really are to yourself. If there’s one thing I know about success, it’s that success only comes when you are 100% aligned. So if you aren’t experiencing the level of success you’d like to experience {or even some version of it, because yes, it does take time for success to unfold}, ask yourself: Where am I out of alignment? Am I doing what I’m doing in my life...

Victim vs. Creator: Who Are You Being?

Manifesting Mindset, Personal Story
Manifest More Success

Hit the rewind button to three years ago, when I was stuffed in a car for thirty hours on the way home from our last stop in Denver. It had been eight weeks since I’d lived a normal life and returning home felt like a cage. {Listen on SoundCloud >>here} I remember watching the tiny beads of rain cling to the windshield and feeling their pain as they were ripped away by the wind. Outside, miles of flat farmland swept by. Somewhere on the horizon of Missouri, with legs folded on the seat and journal pressed against my thighs, my hair stood on end and my heart sank into my...

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...
