At the time of this interview, things were good for Kate. She had brought in $918 dollars in the previous few days, bringing her total to $148,747.02. Prior to that Kate’s business had stalled. She has been trying to stuff down her Future Self. Putting her in a closet and telling her to be quiet. The problem is you can’t do that once you’ve started the journey to becoming your Future Self.
Last April, Kate stepped into her Future Self big time when she participated in the Future Self event at the Paradise Valley Castle. She left there more of her Future Self, yet she was still trying to be her current self.
When she left the Paradise Valley Castle, she forgot her jean jacket. It’s the jean jacket she wore in her $10K photo shoot. It used to be her favorite. When she didn’t have it, she had to get a new one, one that was more her Future Self. And she wore the new one, a lot.
Whenever she put on that jacket it activated her Future Self feelings; confident, sexy and classy. She was constantly activating her Future Self, so you can see why stuffing her wasn’t working out too well.
When you don’t open the space and step into your Future Self, she’ll do things to help you move the process along. Often those things are painful. It’s painful to push against and yet it often happens in the process of fully developing into your Future Self. It’s what Kate experienced for several months until it came to a head.
For Kate that was realizing she had to let some things go, rather than hold on.

The clouds started to lift as soon as she gave notice at the wellness center where she worked. Of course they did because letting go of her office at the wellness center is a huge part of stepping into her Future Self. Her Future Self coaches from her computer, in the middle of an adventure, not an office.
