You Are Significant

"There are generations yet unborn whose very lives will be shifted and shaped by the moves you make today. And tomorrow. And the next day. And the next.

Every single thing you do matters.

You have been created as one of a kind.
On the planet earth, there never has been one like you… and there never will be again.
Your spirit, your thoughts and feelings, your ability to reason and act all exist in no one else.
The rarities that make you special are no mere accident or quirk of fate.
You have been created in order that you might make a difference.
You have within you the power to change the world.
Know that your actions cannot be hoarded. Saved for later. Or used selectively.
By your hand, millions- billions- of lives will be altered, caught up in a chain of events begun by you this day.
The very beating of your heart has meaning and purpose.
Your actions have value far greater than silver or gold.
Your life…
And what you do with it today…
Matters forever!!!"

Women and Money Workshop October 2015

Women and Money

What’s Holding Women Back from Financial Prosperity?

Research shows that what holds many women back has little to do with their intelligence, motivation or spirit—but it has to do with their relationship to money. Many women:

  • Privately struggle with valuing themselves and their worth;
  • Question whether they are truly good enough, deserving enough and worthy enough; and
  • Feel guilty for wanting more—questioning, “Who am I to even think I can be a million dollar business owner?”

This can affect your results and ability to get to the next level of your business and accomplish your big vision and mission.

If You’re Ready To Have More Financial Prosperity and Social Impact in Your Business and Life…Then This Workshop Women and Money is for YOU!!!

Learn to create a more successful and fluid relationship with money. Discovering your deeper feelings about money will not only help you make better financial decisions and life choices, it also will teach you much about yourself.

Here are some of the things you can explore in the Women and Money Workshop

  • Do you pretend to have more than you actually have or hide your wealth from others?
  • Do you think about money matters more—or less—than you would like?
  • Do you spend money you don’t have or have trouble spending the money you do have?
  • Do you have a hard time buying things for yourself?
  • Do you fight with others about money?
  • Are you envious of what others appear to have?
  • Do money worries keep you up at night?

Empowering your relationship with money is the starting point and foundation to achieving the financial prosperity and success you desire—enabling you to become the change maker and leader you know deep within your soul you’re meant to be.

The sooner you empower your relationship with money, the more easily you will be able to take bold actions because the world needs your gifts, the messages you have to share, and the impact you can make. Imagine the possibilities….

Use Gratitude to Create a Bounty of Positive Change in Your Life

Use Gratitude to Create a Bounty of Positive Change in Your Life

Consistent gratitude is one of the most powerful tools that you can use to propel yourself into a brighter tomorrow. Gratitude isn't a magical shortcut, though. It doesn't necessarily create any changes outside of yourself. What it can do, however, is open you up to other opportunities.
As you become aware of the multitude of blessings already present in your life, you may begin to focus on abundance more and more. This can set you on a path to a mental state rich in optimism.
This transformation takes place as you begin to express genuine gratitude to others, and start feeling gratitude for everything in your life that brings you joy.

Become Receptive to Abundance

A great way to increase your awareness of the abundance you already have is to start a gratitude journal. You don't have to wait for something great to come into your life to appreciate it. Instead, just open your notebook once a day and take a few minutes to write down everything you're thankful for.

You can feel grateful for anything, big or small. On days when you think you have absolutely nothing to be appreciative for, you can prime the pump by taking stock of the little things. For instance, take note of the air you're breathing or the food in your pantry.

Once you realize that there are so many things to be grateful for, you'll find that you can think of more and more blessings in your life.
After several weeks of journaling in this way, you may find that you're spontaneously running into "good luck."
Some New Age gurus will tell you that your new found luck is due to "positive vibrations." Instead, it probably has more to do with training your brain to spot opportunities. You've convinced your subconscious that you're positively swimming in abundance. And why not? You deserve it!

Gratitude is a Tool

Gratitude can put you on the path to becoming a stronger person. Use gratitude proactively to arm yourself against negativity and tough times. Focus on what you do have as opposed to what you don't have.
A study published in the Journal of Personality and Social Psychology entitled "Counting Blessings versus Burdens: An Experimental Investigation of Gratitude and Subjective Well-being in Daily Life" found that those who maintained a grateful attitude experienced greater physical and psychological well-being.
The study claims that daily gratitude increases self-esteem. It also reduces materialism, envy, and self-centered tendencies. Gratitude can also help you to form more meaningful relationships and generate social capital. People who consistently express gratitude are trusted more than those who don't.
Still other studies suggest that as you cultivate gratitude, you're more likely to grow in response to stress, instead of shrink.
By keeping the things you're thankful for in your mind, you can reduce stress. When you deal with stressors more pro-actively, others will notice your new-found confidence.
All of these effects combine to create new opportunities in your life that you wouldn't have noticed otherwise. So go ahead: start a gratitude journal, and let the stress melt off. Open yourself up to the possibility of abundance. You'll be glad you did!


To Sarah

This morning I decided to call a friend Sarah whom I have not spoken to in a long time but had been in touch over the past few months by text. Sometimes it’s convenient to text because of my busy schedule but I also feel it’s important to talk with people or meet in person and connect with the person’s vibration.

“Behind every person lies a story” Oprah

After our small talk on the wellbeing of kids, progress in business and professional lives. I had one question in my mind bubbling up to the surface that I needed to ask and knew it will change the positive energy of the conversation. “How are you and hubby?’’ I asked, “My friend, I am not happy, things are so difficult”. I felt so sad for Sarah because over the past few years I have known of her challenges and having been through a similar journey I wish she would find peace and joy in her marriage. We started talking and as she was sharing her marital problems with me. Like many women Sarah is “stuck” in an unfulfilling relationship and her reasons are the common ones, “I don’t want my kids to be affected by a separation”; “I don’t think I can make it on my own”; “I’m not financially ready to make the leap yet”; “I’m waiting for my business to grow a bit…” and the list goes on.

“Stop holding yourself back if you are not happy, make a change.”

Listing to Sarah, I felt a once familiar deep sense of pain and when I look back now, I too once felt stuck and felt like I had no choice in anything and I had work hard at accepting my situation. My relationship started off very well, I thought I had met my soulmate. When things started going south I it was easier to try and ignore the problems because we shared so much together, our time, children and business so for fear of rocking the boat looking the other way was my way of dealing with the situation and hoped it would work itself out. It was more important for me to keep things together and “stay strong”, I felt there was so much at stake, the children were my greatest worry but I was also working hard at playing “my life is perfect” , and it was important for me to be perceived by people as having it together and a good man by my side. I could not bear to face both our families, when the message thrown at me continuously was “marriage is not easy, you have to be strong and work at it”; “don’t stress about other women, all men are the same, if you leave him, the next one will do the same”.

Wherever I turned, I felt like no one understood my pain. Many times I wanted to escape my mind. My head and heart were in conflict all the time, it’s not easy to pretend happiness, you smile with everyone you meet, they see you holding hands and kissing. The reality is different the moment you arrive home, we could not look each other in the eye or even talk.

“The strongest people are not those who show strength in front of us, but those who win battles we know nothing about” Anon

I felt stuck and being stuck at the time meant that in as much as I wanted to change my life, it was difficult to initiate the change because my mind would make me believe that I’m not worth much without this man. Many times I gave up on my Truth (compromised my joy, health, and spirit) and chose to work on things. The lack of self-worth and esteem is what kept me glued to my beliefs at the time and making me more stuck in a situation I desperately wanted to escape from.

I am not the first to have been in such a situation and I won’t be the last, I am writing this for you Sarah because for as long as you are drawing breath, you are gifted with life and know that there is never a convenient time to leave a relationship, because if you don’t face the fear that keeps you there it destroys you slowly. I know too well how difficult and painful it is to be in the apex of change, but there is no greater pain and suffering than staying stuck where you don’t belong. If you think you are stuck where you do not wish to be, just know that at some point in time you became comfortable sitting there. Being stuck is not something that “just happened” to you, you chose it and you are still choosing it every day.

“Until you believe you have options, you will continue to feel stuck.” Sean Stephanson

Sarah, if there is one important thing you must take with you after reading this is that no matter situation you are facing at work or at home is that- it’s all about YOU!

  • It’s not about the relationship that you are in, it’s about you being in that relationship;
  • It’s not about the job you have its about you having that job;
  • It’s not about the opportunities that are available to you, it’s about how you respond to those opportunities and
  • It’s not about getting other people to change, it’s about you changing.

You have this very moment to decide who are now. You have this moment to decide where you want to go from here, only you get to decide what you want in your life.

“Great destinies are shaped by difficult choices.” Anon

The day I made the decision to end my relationship- with kids and all, was the day I took all my power back. Being indecisive, fearful, angry, depressed, feeling unworthy were the times I gave away my power- my essence day after day like most women, I lost myself in a relationship.

I want every person out there who has been caught in a decisive war to know that you are not stuck, you always have and make choices, and you choose how you respond to those choices. Your freedom comes from acknowledging the choices you make and taking responsibility for the way your life is now.

There is nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won't feel insecure around you.” Marriane Williamson

If you want something in your life you have never had, you will have to do something you have never done, and trust that the universe has your back. How can you expect possibilities to present themselves if you are holding on the problems?

“Time heals nothing unless you move along with it” Anon

Believe in yourself, trust yourself, pray. Deep within you, you have the answer, you know your worth. Go and claim it.
