Has Your Woman Hear Me Roar Turned Into a Meow?

I’ve been out here a for a minute as a full time entrepreneur. Thirty three years to be exact. I have had my share of failure and successes. I’ve been in the penthouse and the dog house. I’ve studied under and learned from some of the best in the business world. I’ve been coached and mentored by household names.
Over the years, I’ve seen business change. Much of it for the better and some for the worst. I’ve heard that because of the internet, we can collapse time and do more. While this maybe true, there’s also a lot of cons to this who internet and social media craze when it comes to operating a business.
There are many business and success gurus that are teaching us the latest techniques for getting our brand to the masses. We’re told that if we don’t do certain things and do it regularly and often that we will not create the kind of success that we desire.
So what do we do? We create a Facebook and Linkedin profile, an Instagram page, Twitter, Youtube and for many you’ve added some others. Now, you’ve got to learn how to use all of these effectively to get prospects to look your way. You now need to get people, lots of people to follow you, like your posts and etc. You’ve been told this is real marketing.

 

Then there’s your website. You must have a website? Right? Not only a website, you need a stand out logo, brand colors, banners, business cards, brochures, post cards and etc. Are you tired yet? Hold on a minute, because you’re not finish.

 

You’ve got to drive traffic to your website, get SEO and build a massive email list. Because you’ve been told that you can only earn good money if you have a big email list of at least 5,000 or more. There’s more. Like conference calls, google hangout, Facebook Live, uploading to Youtube, answering emails, text messages and returning phone calls.
Next, you are told to do live events, create a product and write a book in order to gain entry into mainstream. Okay, take a deep breath. Just breathe because there’s more. Does this sound familiar to you? It’s enough to drive a woman insane. Even though you’ve hired assistants and virtual assistants, your hands and your head is about the explode. Because you still have much more to take care of than just your business.

 

There’s groceries to be purchased, dinner to be cooked, laundry to do, homework to look over, taking the dog to the vet, dance classes and sports for the kids. Who has to do it? Most often we do. Not to mention, you having to deal with hot flashes, thighs getting bigger, girlfriend drama and you can’t forget getting in the time and sex with your husband. Whew! Are you tired yet? Is there any time left for you? Is there time to sleep?..not only sleep, but to rest.

 

You’re trying to be the “Boss Lady” “The Woman hear me roar.” But you can only belt out a whisper of a “Meow.” That’s because you’re overwhelmed, overworked and overloaded. Can you truly be happy and physically thrive in this kind of rush?
So many women entrepreneurs can relate to this and so have I in times past. But it was within the past few years, that I discovered these strategies were simply too masculine for my system. They were killing me and many other women.

 

When women try to tap into strategies that are not in alignment with their feminine essence, the truth of who they are, it can become draining and depleting. Oftentimes resulting in illnesses. As a result, you’re tired emotionally, feel stuck, used, abused and you still are not seeing the results that you’d hope to see.

 

As we continue to evolve, it’s important to understand that doing business from a deeper place is necessary to ensure permanent success in our lives. As I was working so hard from a masculine energy, I would experience success. Yet, that success would not be permanent because I would have to work even harder to keep it.

 

I simply didn’t want to continue on this up and down roller coaster. As women we want much more than overwhelm and our heads filled with all the things we have to do next. We want success in the boardroom and the bedroom. At least this is what I wanted. I wanted to know that my business would be successful and my family life would be successful.

 

I wanted to know that I could work and play with ease and grace. I wanted time and money freedom, but I wasn’t interested in implementing strategies that simply were not authentic or natural to my system as a woman.

 

This is why I created my Awakened Life Journey experience. It’s for the woman who is ready to dump all of that stuff that no longer serves her feminine power. It’s for the woman who knows there’s another way that speaks to the core of who she is. It’s not just a program filled with feminine strategies that work for women, it’s a way of life. It’s a lifestyle. It’s the Awakening to your truth. The truth of who you are, the truth of what’s possible for your life and the truth of actually achieving it without the stress, strain and overwhelm. When you Awaken Your Life, you open the flow of infinite possibilities for your life. The women in this program with me have started to see a new paradigm for working and living.

 

I’ve been able to reduce my work time down to 3 days a week when I’m not traveling or doing events. In these 3 days, I am able to accomplish much more, attract and manifest more money, more love and more success that ever before. You’ve heard the phrase, “It’s not what you do, it’s how you do it.” I have a new phrase for you. “It’s not what you’re doing, it’s who you’re being.” Living the Awakened Life is more about WHO you are. When the shifts happens, life and business becomes so much easier.
You have only one life to live. Are you sure you want to live it in chaos, confusion, stress, and overload? This keeps you on empty and you cannot give to others out of an empty cup. I’m not saying that my Awakened Life Journey is the ONLY way…but it sure is Another Way. It’s a new journey. But it’s a journey worth taking.

You Gotta Let It Go!

We all have had some pretty horrible break ups in our lives. Whether it was a marriage that ended, a friendship or business partnership, these kind of breakups can throw us into a tail spin of questions, confusion, pain and even regret. We begin questioning ourselves about what happened, why did it happen and who’s fault was it? We talk about with anyone who will listen. We feel compelled to talk about it over and over again.

What we are really trying to do is make some sense of what happened. We’re also trying to talk ourselves into it not being our fault. Subconsciously, we believe that if it’s not our fault that somehow we will feel better about what happened. Actually, we feel worse. And we find ourselves stuck and unable to truly move forward.

Does that sound about right? Have you been down this road before? Of course you have and guess what? There’s no guarantee that you won’t go down that road again. Let’s face it! Life happens and it’s not always pretty. We’ve all taken some hard blows in this life. We’ve all felt at one time or another that the bottom just fell out.  You maybe there right now. When this happens, we feel like we simply cannot move. The pain is so intense that we are not sure if we will ever  breathe again.

I’ve been there, you’ve been there and we’ve witnessed people that we love in that space as well. Then someone comes along and says to us, “You gotta let it go.” Don’t you just want to punch them in the face! I remember thinking, “Let it go! Are you crazy? Do you know what they did to me?” Ah ha, I have to laugh at this because I would be serious and angry at the same time. I used to think that was the most ridiculous thing anyone could say to a hurting person.

Yet, I’ve discovered that it was the most loving thing that I could do for myself. You see, when you continue to talk about the situation over and over again, you continue to recreate the original offense, hurt and pain over and over again. When you live in that space of intense pain, confusion and regret, you create bigger issues for yourself.

I want to share with you three things you can do to start the process of Letting Go:

 

  1. Stop Talking About It to Everyone: You body hears and takes in everything. The negative energy that accompanies the words/feelings/thoughts you continue to exchange with others about the situation goes right into your body. You may not see the results of this right away. But perhaps months or even years, your body begins to respond to the negative energy you heaped upon it and it shows up in diseases or come kind of illness. “Angela, are you saying that I am creating illnesses in my body just because I am talking about it?” Yes, I am. There are tons of research and scientific studies that prove negative thinking, feelings can create chronic illnesses in the body. If you need to talk things out to get some clarity, then hire a professional therapist. At least they will help you find a healthier way to talk about it and give you the proper tools on releasing and letting go.

 

  1. Choose to Forgive: I know it’s sometimes easier to say than to do. Only until you recognize that forgiveness is more about you than about the other person. When you don’t forgive, you remain stuck in the space of the offense. You become the person who cannot recreate a new narrative for your life because you are stuck. And even if you do try to move forward, nothing will happen because un-forgiveness serves as a block or barrier to your success. It will prevent anything from happening. When I learned this truth, I was willing to forgive everybody for everything. I could not imagine allowing something that someone did to me control my destiny. You take back your life and your control when you forgive. You choose YOU when you forgive.

 

  1. Set a Move On Date: Look at your calendar and set a date for when you are going to “Move On.” Mark that date on your calendar and it’s the day that you will take some kind of action step that indicates you are moving on. You may not feel like moving on but do it anyway. Remember, you cannot trust your feelings because they are connected to your erroneous belief system. Let’s say, you had a break up with a business partner and it’s left you in financial debt and broke. Set a date for when you are going to move forward. On that date, schedule to sit down and talk to a financial counselor who can help you find ways to lower your debt, give advice and move you in the right direction. There are tons of free services out there that will even call the creditors and negotiate lower balances and interest rates on your behalf. Also, launch a new online business that can create some easy and quick revenue. You can learn how to do this by watching some Youtube videos. These may seem like small steps, but doing enough of these small steps consistently can literally change your life. Whatever you do, set a move on date and take corresponding actions.

 

Remember, like is too short to hold onto to things that no longer serve you. The most loving thing that you can do for your life and yourself is to let go. When you resist the flow of life, you create more struggle. But when you surrender to the flow and to the principles that govern the universe, you create a space of infinite possibilities for your life. Choose you and live.
