The New Women’s Movement

j0439562Something is happening among us women.  Forbes.com recently published an article that headlined, “Entrepreneurship…The New Women’s Movement.”

The article went on to say, “Women are leaving the workforce in droves in favor of being at home. Not to be a homemake, but as job-making entrepreneurs”

Many women have somehow found themselves unsatisfied and unfulfilled with their lives. We’re tired, anxious and conflicted. Trying to choose between who we’ve been programmed to be or choosing in favor of our true passions and who we were born to be.  Many of us have felt as if we’ve taken on a life that’s not our own.

As women, we absolutely want to be successful in life. But not in some superficial, red bottom stepping, Chanel toting, Versace wearing, kind of way. Even the deadline driven, network seeking, move up the career ladder kind of hustle no longer appeals to who we are today. Because we’re now desiring the things that speaks to the voice of our souls and are natural to the feminine divine essence of who we really are. 

We yearn for the kind of success that inspires us, expands us and empowers us to move in the direction of our hearts, our true purposes and our gifts.There’s a pulling on all of us-a call towards the realization of  our highest potential and our greater service to the world. Because we have become fearless in our beliefs that we can change, maybe not the world, but at least our own lives, our families and our communities.

I too have recently asked myself some tough questions. Because I understand that the quality of our lives is directly proportion to the quality of the questions we ask ourselves.  The answers I’ve come up with have invoked some very tough changes and actions on my part.

The key to being successful in living your dreams is that you must stay the course. Many of us get a glimpse of our own infinite power and it all becomes clear. But then we somehow find away  back to our old ways of being and the cycle of defeat begins to repeat itself. 

But the truth is, if you want transformation to last, you gotta do the work.  All roads lead back to spirituality. The spiritual practices must become a part of our daily lives in order to change our internal landscapes. If we as women, are going to be great leaders, successful entrepreneurs, trailblazers and change makers, it must start within our hearts. A space where women know how to live from naturally. It’s natural to who we are. 

Coming from a space of heart, care and love are the essential tools needed to manifest real success and transformation in our own lives and the world around us. I do believe the new women’s movement is happening around us as we speak. We are in the midst of a radical unleashing of something new, something better and something amazing. And women are leading the way. 

Reclaim your truth. Give yourself permission to say “Yes.” Become a apart of this huge unleashing of love on the planet by sharing your unique gifts and talents with the world through the power of entrepreneurship. Studies have shown that when women succeed in business, they give back to their communities in huge ways. It’s your time to step into the world of infinite possibilities and a wondrous new life of contribution through entrepreneurship. 

Remember, live authentically, laugh everyday and embrace love as a lifestyle. Because success really does begin with love.

 
 

Move Beyond Your Comfort Zone and Jumpstart Your Next Level in 2012!

Are you ready to move beyond your comfort zone and live your life bigger and bolder in 2012? Simply put, are you ready to move to the next level in 2012?
Did you know that when you step outside of your comfort zone that you can begin to make giant leaps in your personal and professional lives.
Stepping outside of your comfort zone meaning doing what doesn’t feel comfortable to your conscious mind, but you know deep within that it is what’s right for you. I want to share with you four steps you can implement right away to jumpstart your next level move in 2012.
1. Commit to feeding your mind. Preselect a time of day that you spend at least 30-60 minutes reading, studying or listening to new personal growth content and information.  I call this time my Personal Growth University where I sit down and take notes while listening to my audio library and reading. I have most of these things downloaded onto my Ipod and Ipad and I carry them with me everywhere I go. My automobiles are all filled with powerful teachings that I can listen to while driving. Remember, the more you know, the more you grow.
2. Commit to taking better care of your body. This is an area that I have not been very faithful. But as I grow myself and my business, I understand that taking care of my body is a symbol of self love. Self care is one of the most important things you can do for yourself, your family, and your business. Not only does it represent self love, but it also provides you with a strong and healthy body  to carry your vision. Your body must be in good shape in order to provide the stamina needed to keep up with your business and personal growth. Commit to eating healthier, daily exercise, more sleep and stress elimination. Be sure to visit your doctor for annual pap smear, mammogram, eye exams, dental appointments etc. In addition,  adding things such as massages, Yoga and other stress relief techniques will help you create a great self care regimen.
3. Commit to valuing your time. Time is your greatest asset and we all have been given the same amount of time each day. It’s what you do with your time that makes the difference. Creating a time system that works well with your life is important if you are going to move to the next level in 2012. I teach my platinum clients how to make time an asset in their business to create maximum momentum and yet have time for play and relaxation.  Take a good look at your schedule and begin to eliminate the things that are non-essential, non-productive and non-necessary in your life. Things such as too much television, too much phone chit chat, running errands that can be outsourced and etc. You can cook big meals so that you don’t have to cook everyday, consolidate your outside appointments to one or two days a week, return phone calls a certain time of the day and limit social media activities. Whatever you need to do in order to free up more time, do it now.
4. Commit to getting a handle on your money issues. Many people have some invisible barriers around money which keep them in a struggle with their finances. It’s time to get a handle on your money issues,  once and for all. I have a Money Synergy 101 Program that will certainly do just that. Whatever path you choose to transform your relationship with money, it’s time that you do so immediately. When that happens, you will begin to see your money grow. Money serves as medium of exchange and having money gives you freedom and many options in life. Stop allowing your money issue s to prevent you from   exercising your  freedom of options in 2012.The above four steps are just a few samples of what will help you to jumpstart your next level move in 2012.  It is important that you understand that you will need the help of a mentor or coach. Stop trying to do it alone. If you could have done it, you would have already been done it.

 

When I finally realized that I didn’t have the power to take myself to the next level, I hired a coach. When you choose to take your life or business to the next level, you need the helping hands of someone who has already been where you are going to show you the way. Not only does a coach help guide you toward your dreams, she will offer you accountability and a fresh perspective. This is not something you can do for yourself.
If you are serious about moving to the next level, then implement these four steps, hire a coach and watch your life soar!!
And remember, live authentically, laugh everyday and embrace love as a lifestyle.
