Yesterday someone asked me how many people listen to my podcast.
“I have NO clue,” I told her. “I don’t track it.”
I also don’t track how many people visit my website. Nor the growth of my list or the results of my actions.
I don’t track anything besides how much money comes in, and what part of my income comes from books, coaching, and my online programs. (I don’t track how many books I sell, though; I only track the royalties of all my books combined.)
I’m not stupid.
I KNOW it can be useful to know your numbers.
It helps you see what works and what doesn’t, or where to make changes.
Still, I don’t do it. I tried multiple times! I stared intensely at my Googly Analytics numbers. I asked my team to track things and send me the numbers. I stared intensely at those, too.
But the same thing happens Every. Time:
My energy INSTANTLY drops. No matter how high my energy is: the moment I look at those numbers, my energy, mood, and will to live drop WAY below zero.
And so, I don’t do it. Because it doesn’t serve me.
Here’s what I do instead:
I’m committed to do what’s in my highest good and follow my soul’s guidance.
I’m committed to allow my highest destiny to unfold.
I’m committed to live up to my highest potential.
I’m committed to let my work and books be the best they can be, and to be of the best service to as many people as possible.
I don’t know what ANY of that looks like.
What my limited mind can come up with is nothing compared to what my soul sees for me.
So, I don’t worry about numbers or what I think is the best result.
I’m committed to let the best possible outcome in the highest good of everyone unfold. My soul knows what that looks like and will tell me what to do and focus on in each moment.
Maybe only 1 person listens to my podcast.
But who knows the butterfly effect that can have? Who knows what the effect is of my podcast even being there, without anyone ever listening to it?
You can’t know. Numbers can’t tell you.
That’s why I don’t track numbers.
My soul tracks all vital data.
When I follow my soul, I always do the right thing at the right time. That’s all I need to know and do.
