"Why is it so hard to promote my business?"
. . . when you're a Wonderfully Weird miracle or Neurospicy ADHD star and it feels like you're 5 different people in One Body?'
Are you wondering why it can be so hard to promote your business? Why you start a marketing project but stop before it's ready?
Keep reading dear friend, because it's a little bit more complicated than you might think. BUT there's also a way out.
Do you recognize this?
✔︎ You wake up and feel a powerful dedication to make this a 20K month. Before breakfast you’ve written your strategy and a full launch plan.
✔︎ But at 10 AM in the morning you’re watching a reel about a woman who spent her entire life planting trees and now you’re 100% convinced that you’re wasting your precious time on earth with this stupid ‘Make More Money’ plan.
You wonder: “How can I be so selfish? Okay, how can I save our dear mother earth?”
✔︎ At 11 AM you look up to the sky and see a stork majestically moving forward without flapping its wings and something clicks. Maybe, you wonder, maybe, I’m not the saving type.
"Maybe my energy is more like Being the Sky. Maybe I’m the one who can be the magic that supports the birds (aka human beings) so that they can safely rest their wings and still get where they want to be".
✔︎ This is such a bloody powerful insight that at 11.15 AM you’re drawing sketches for your new logo. You just know that this will change your entire business. It’s like you’re being taken over. This is The Best Idea Ev-er!
✔︎ At 12 PM you’re writing your “I’m like your Sky” plan. You feel like you just have been granted 100 extra IQ points and someone has put on the light in your brain. You see it in front of you, plans, masterclasses, the program you can launch. You can even see the smiles on the faces of the people you’re going to work with.
And than it falls all to pieces
✔︎ At 1 PM, you take a break. Big Mistake!
Because the first thing you see is a Facebook ad from a 25 year old, blond and very perfect yoga lady who owns a huge Yoga Studio in Bali. Your first thought: How did she manage that?
And then you hear her say: “You’ve got to be Like the Sky, you have the power to push people forward, you just gotta believe in yourself. Buy my Be Like the Sky Program for just 87 dollars, instead of 2.999 dollars. Learn how to become the best coach and become a certified Be Like the Sky trainer. ”
She looks at you while folding her hands in: I’m praying with you position and you feel your inside turn to stone.
You spiral from ‘that bloody woman stole my idea’ to 'Everything I can come up with is worthless’ and to feeling: ‘I’m worthless, why can’t I never have a truly original idea?’
❌ You spend the rest of the day reading everything that woman has done (it’s not a lot) you might even look her up and see what other people wrote (also not a lot).
❌ Your energy level has gone down, you’re not sending out the email that’s on your to do list: “Who wants to hear from me? It will fail anyway”.
❌ You don’t react to the person who sent you a DM, because “She probably wants to sell me something” and might miss out on an amazing client.
Okay. If you have many days like this and you want to understand what happened here. Keep reading.
If you're new here and haven't taken the Wonderfully Weird Archetypes Quiz do it now. Scroll to the bottom of this page, take the quiz and come back.
Because it will give you an even better experience. Also, it's an absolutely amazing quiz and workbook!
Now let's see what really happened here. And find out why it's so hard to promote your business when you're Wonderfully Weird.
As a Wonderfully Weird person you’ve got 5 Archetypes and they are ALL part of you. You’re never just One Archetype. But there might be some archetypes that are naturally stronger in you. This is how they influence you. Let's go back to the start of your day.
You wake up and feel a powerful dedication to make this a 20K month. Before breakfast you’ve written your strategy and a full launch plan.
1. This is your Focus Queen power. She's going places. She is being pushed forward by some energy that makes her a natural leader. She's the one who decide to wake up with you.
But at 10 AM in the morning you’re watching a reel about a woman who spent her entire life planting trees and you’re 100% convinced that you’re wasting your precious time on earth with this stupid ‘Make More Money’ plan. You wonder: “How can I be so selfish? Okay, how can I save dear mother earth?.”
2. This is your Mission Star. She's here for a reason. She's got a profound inner drive to change the status quo or get on the barricades. She needs to do serve, help and transform.
At 11 AM you look up to the sky and see a stork majestically moving forward without flapping its wings and something clicks. Maybe, you wonder, maybe, I’m not the saving type.
Maybe my energy is more like Being the Sky. Maybe I’m the one who can be the magic that supports the birds (aka human beings) so that they can safely rest their wings and still get where they want to be.
3. Your Wise One energy feels everything, she's very sensitive. This allows her to dive deeper than many people and effortlessly move energy. This is not so much a choice but something that just happens
This is such a bloody powerful insight that at 11.15 AM you’re drawing sketches for your new logo. You just know that this will change your entire business. It’s like you’re being taken over. This is The Best Idea Ev-er!
4. Where ideas are needed the Dream Miracle takes over. She's driven by a deep longing to express and create. She sees faces where other people see a house and can hear the music in the trees.
At 12 PM you’re writing your “I’m like your Sky” plan. You feel like you just have been granted 100 extra IQ points and someone has put on the light in your brain. You see it in front of you, plans, masterclasses, the program you can launch. You can even see the smiles on the faces of the people you’re going to work with.
5. Your Wonder Brain is fiercely bright. Her brain is a magical super-charged miracle machine that allows you to solve complex problems or see unusual solutions.
And then it all fell into pieces because of the Yoga lady on Bali. Remember?
Well that lady - unbeknown to her - triggered all the pain of your 5 Wonderfully Weird archetypes as well as some old pains that keep coming up.
This is why it's so hard to promote yourself when you're a Wonderfully Weird and or Neurospicy ADHD star
🌟 The Focus Queen feels unseen, let down and exhausted on off-days. She just wants to cry. Even though a couple of hours ago she was ready to make 20K. Her strong sense of leadership turned into feeling like a young child who lacks the power to make her own decisions. Her audience has shifted from 'Those I can inspire and lead' to "The people who don't give a shit about reaching anything, they probably don't even like me anyway."
🌟 The Mission Star who was ready to change the world, felt like her dedication and hard work was all in vain. She felt taken for granted, maybe even punished for being such a 'Want To Do Good Things' person. When she has money issues around being paid - instead of giving it all away - she might feel angry, wronged and taken for granted.
🌟 The Dream Miracle felt like her creative force got trapped in Never Good Enough or Who Wants This Anyway? Again! This is such a familiar feeling that it doesn't take a lot to trigger. She might feel like her art, offers, or programs have lost their sparkle. And go as far as destroying or hiding things that she loved before.
🌟 The Wise One retreats into protecting herself. She knows that on bad days this world is too much for her and feels lost and worthless. She might feel like she betrayed the sanctity of her wisdom for the sake of success in her business. She might feel like she needs an extra protection layer and might drop everything on her To Do list.
🌟 The Wonder Brain, who often struggles with explaining her multi-layered knowledge might go into a: People are just too stupid spin. Here fiercely bright brain is one of the reason she can feel isolated. When a stream of solutions is not properly processed she might feel like her brain is a library trampled by elephants.
And it all started with ‘I’m not original’ and ‘My Idea is already used by someone else.’
When you're neurospicy (ADHD/ Autism / etc) you're probably already For those familiar with Rejection sensitive dysphoria (RSD)
RSD interferes with your ability to regulate your emotional responses to feelings of failure and rejection. While rejection is almost always unpleasant, people with RSD experience overwhelming levels of emotional pain.The result is that we withdraw into negative feelings because - after years of feeling there’s something wrong with us - they are more at the surface than our powers.
If you're someone who sometimes writes a post but removes after 10 minutes when no one has reacted (hello! that's me) you know what I'm talking about.
As an ADHD person you are also familiar with the dopamine drop. Deeply passionate about something can turn into stone in the afternoon. It's not you! It's our brain.
Add: the disorganized, I forget everything, I have so many ideas frenzy, but get really bored after 1 week,
Add: Imposter syndrome, Brain freeze, paralysis, fear, procrastination to this list,
Add: Years and years of feeling misunderstood . . .
and now things can get really complicated.
So do I just have to deal with feeling miserable, just because I'm Wonderfully Weird? You might wonder
No, far from!
Because change starts when you can see and feel what is happening. Awareness is everything! Daily work will lead to self-acceptance. Dealing with the shame, overcoming isolation - have an absolutely great community of fellow Wonderfully Weird people, and be part of a process that works! - that will change everything.
Because once you stop being driven back and forth by some unseen driver, it's very challenging to get to your destination. So, let's get you in the drivers seat.
