SHIP IT. | The Female Grail with Durga Holzhauser


How to get over
the reasons not to deliver.

There is no way to win the big pot other than to decide to deliver. Your new career, launching your web site, rebranding your company, recycling of your logo because none perfectly fits, starting the new TOP SECRET project, going for an idea so fucking big you shiver when you think about it, exporting your workshop to your audience, creating profound life changes, doing more yoga or finally writing your biography and making a beautiful book plan.

We all have a dream.
You will never know if yours can be real until you deliver.

There will never be a guarantee of success or failure. In order to express your genius that lives within (believe me we all have it), we must make choices. Listen, the inner saboteur is a magician. You may have thousands of reasons for not shipping.

Shall I share a few of mine? Of course I do not know enough. I never see clearly enough. My analysis paralysis has a fiesta; shopping is always better than disciplined writing; I could always use a magic potion. I could do better and care more. And often I do not feel like it today. I do, I do, I do. YES.

Purposefulness and perseverance are not natural. They are a victory over my inner fights to earn sovereignty over my shining light. They are proof that I can shift away from the sucking emotions.

I use my weapons to turn big ideas into movements. They are no secret, but really effective.

14 weapons to fight not-shipping.
Because there will never be an absolute moment.

  1. Whatever you ship, it will change the world. Know this in your cells. After shipping, the world you knew will never be the same.
  2. You will change when you ship. That is the art of the deal.
  3. Name the project. What is it about? How does it smell, what color does it have? What sound of music is in the air?
  4. When will you ship it? Choose a delivery date and be held accountable.
  5. Drawing the line is frightening. It’s where our lizard brain freezes and we want to turn back to our comfort zone. Stay tight. Mark the days in the calendar before and after you ship. Be gentle with yourself these days, because as you are shipping, you are transforming.
  6. Crossing the line is your initiation. The line is empowering. Your ability to move it will polish your ability to make things shine.
  7. List all participants who are involved in the shipping. Encourage each other; remind one another that you will figure it out. Collectively align with a higher source.
  8. Make a list: what are you afraid of?
  9. Name the edges you want to walk. We can only deliver extremes; everything else is compromise. We want to matter. Yes, we do.
  10. Make inner contact with your customers. Pitch it perfectly and with love.
  11. Who can stop this project? Name them. (Believe me, this is powerful.)
  12. Who is your competition? Only great competitors will make us grow.
  13. List all details required to make it happen. Make it smart and over-detailed. Then start the flow effortlessly. Let the list of details flow into your subconscious. It’s a river that will reach the sea of fulfillment. It will happen. You will ship. Believe me. Because you can. Nothing more. Nothing less.
  14. Ignore all worries that what you ship is not good enough. Fight that inner perfectionist. Trust that it is good enough. The feeling of scarcity is part of your inner genius strategy to deliver great goods.

And here is my little secret; it’s just for you and me, so please do not tell anybody.

I am so tired of my own procrastination putting endless projects between me and my #beautifulbookplan for Jesus The Book & series.

My social engagements will suffer, I know. But it feels good to be back on the track of fire. I will keep what I have promised to myself. I will keep what I have promised.

Will you share your secret with me too? Where are you?
