I just watched season 2 of the show ‘Indian Matchmaker’ on Netflix. It’s about an Indian matchmaker who matches people who want to marry. Pretty much what the title suggests. 😉

When the matchmaker meets a new client, she always asks them what they’re looking for in a partner. The client tells her what they’d like to see in their future spouse.

EVERY time she hears what the client is looking for, the matchmaker starts to look like she’s obstipated or is trying to solve an incredibly hard math problem.

And EVERY time she says the exact same thing: “Oh no, you want too much. You can’t get everything you want! If you can get 60% or 70%, that’s great. That’s what you should aim and be prepared for.”

I understand that she’s managing the clients’ expectations by saying this. AND … I can see that she REALLY believes that you can’t have it all and you should always compromise, if only a little.

I wholeheartedly disagree. No, you don’t always get exactly what you want. (It’s often something better than you could have imagined!)

BUT … when you expect to compromise, you severely limit your options and possibilities. When you prepare to settle, you might be inclined to say ‘yes’ to something or someone your intuition tells you to say ‘no’ to.

I ALWAYS shoot for the best option I can think of OR SOMETHING INFINITELY BETTER. I like to add that last part to remain open to something that’s better than I can come up with. My soul sees more options than my limited mind can think of!

I didn’t create my ideal business, schedule, and way of living by compromising or settling. I didn’t get the wonderful relationship I have (for over 21 years now) by settling or compromising.

I created that by NOT settling and NOT being willing to compromise.

Why aim for LESS than what you truly want?

Why settle for something you’re not happy with?

Why compromise on what really matters to you?

Why not shoot for the moon? Even if you miss it, you will land among the stars. (To slightly alter a quote from Les Brown.)

I’ve been coaching women for over 20 years now, supporting them to create the business and life they’ve always dreamed of.

This showed me that most women aim too low, settle too soon, and are too willing to compromise.

Because you don’t believe you can have what you want; you’re not capable or worthy enough; you’re afraid to go for your dreams; you wonder who the hell you think you are to want something; or whatever reason you have that tells you that you can’t get what you want.

That’s why I always work on two main things with all my clients:

To clarify what you TRULY want and aim for that.

And to clear any obstacle that stands in the way of realizing your truest desires.

You truly NEVER have to settle or compromise on your deepest values, dreams, and desires!

Where are you currently settling or compromising?

What do you dream of that you’re not even shooting for?

What do you need to shift or believe to stop doing that?

SO much more is possible than you think, if only you give yourself a chance to find out …

If you’re not sure how to create the business and life you’ve always dreamed of, or don’t even know what that looks like, I can help.

I’m the go-to coach to help you clarify your TRUEST desires (even when you think you know what you want, it’s usually not what you TRULY want. You often settle or water down your true dreams without even knowing it!) and to help you realize them, too. I help you shift your obstacles and blocks so your dreams can unfold for you.
