This is what gets my butt out of bed every morning and fuels my mission as a success-driven spirit infused solopreneur!
This year I’ve been 100% committed to doing whatever it takes to fully embody my personal power. And I have to warn you, be careful for what you ask for! I did not expect the wild ride that I went on, but I am grateful for it. It was my willingness to get uncomfortable and do the work that I uncovered a deeper meaning to my intention to fully embody my personal power…To inspire other women to take the lead and make shit happen!
To me, this means being BOLD and standing in your truth no matter what. It’s exploring where and how you position yourself in your life on any given day, in any given situation or circumstance. Its knowing how you respond and navigate your life when things seem to be unfolding in your favor, as well as, when they are clearly NOT going your way.
What fires you up?
What makes you angry?
What are you passionate about?
What is it that you really want?
What are your deepest desires?
What do you keep avoiding?
What do you have to do to get uncomfortable in order to expand your comfort zone?
Are you gauging your actions and checking in with yourself to see if it’s a “hell yeah” or a “hell no”?
These are important questions to ask yourself in order to take 100% responsibility for your life, which is BIG part of being an effective leader. I believe you can lead from anywhere – even when you are in the role of follower. What?
Yes even when you are following you can lead – it’s simply a shift in your mindset. You do this through connection and staying connected all the way through the conversation, the dance, the project, the relationship, whatever it is. You get connected by first becoming centered in your own core and from there you can send, feel, and think your way through the events of your day, week, month or year with exquisite awareness.
Becoming keenly aware of how you feel in any given moment allows you to be guided internally by what is radically true for you. When you can stand in your truth you’ll have a much easier time course correcting when life throws you curve balls and here’s a little secret…life will throw you curve balls!
It’s not about experiencing a perfect life with no adversity. It’s about how you RESPOND to the adversity. It’s about how you show up and the choices you make to stay committed to being your best self today and everyday.
I learned this the hard way, but I believe this was the only way for me to really get it and for whatever reason it seems to be how I roll. You see, my own mess became my message when I fell face down in the arena of my life. There was nothing soft about my landing. I skinned my knees, scraped my hands broke a few bones, and suffered extreme heartbreak in the process. This face plant took me to a place of total defeat, deep despair and a dark scary place inside. This place was full of uncertainty and I had no idea how I would get up and climb out of this hole. With that said, I had no where to go, but to surrender to being face down in the dirt and from here things started to shift.
The shift came from inside from the pain that ran so deep it pierced through my bones. I felt as if I could only take sips of breath, between the waterfall of tears that washed over me. I felt helpless, hopeless and disoriented while sitting in this dark fiery pit of despair, yet at the same time, I discovered something that would change my life forever.
In this place of darkness where I could barely breath was a spark of light. I began to feel a swell of warmth rise up from inside of me and suddenly, completely unexpected, my heart burst open! I was breathing again and not just hopeful and energized, but ecstatic! I tapped into a reserve of energy that from that moment forward, I relied on to heal – to feel, move and shift my energy in order to find my way out of this dark hole.
I reached for relief and found the right resources to help me stand on my own two feet and become grounded once again in my truth. I had experienced a huge breakthrough, an awakening and a deep knowing that this was my time to heal. To take all the pain from my past, all the old stories that played like a broken record in my head and transform it. Like the alchemist, who never loses hope and teaches that when a person really desires something, the whole universe will conspire to help that person realize their dream.
I was so ready to take a step in the right direction and get back on the correct course after being thrown from the saddle and landing face down in the arena. I was back in the flow and aligned with my true self so much so that I felt UNSTOPPABLE. I had a strong desire to respond to the circumstances of my life with a fierce conviction to become the leader of my life and take 100% responsibility for how I wanted to feel, moment-to-moment, day-to-day, week-to-week, month-to-month and year-to-year.
This is why I am dedicated to help other women tap into the wellspring of their inspiration and take the lead in their life, so they can stop chasing shiny objects that promise happiness, and put and end to repeating negative patterns that keep them stuck in old stories that they’ve out grown and gain the tools to transform. When you take the lead in your life you learn to tune into your deepest desires and you tap into a reservoir of vitality that allows you to make shit happen!
Fuck it’s good – It’s AMAZING! I would have never experienced the rise in my strength without first being completely paralyzed in defeat. So trust me, trust yourself and do whatever it takes to dig down and tap your inspiration to take the lead.
Good things will happen quickly and you will become a manifesting machine, I promise you! Hey, if I can do it, I know you can do it too and I would be delighted to show you how!
