My Deepest Fear

My Deepest Fear…  Is that I am Powerful Beyond Measure.

 

*My deepest fear is not that I am inadequate.

My deepest fear is that I am powerful beyond measure.

It is my light not my darkness that most frightens me.

I ask myself, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous?

Actually, Who am I not to be?

 

Who are YOU not to be?

 

This was the question I had to, no chose to answer and face for myself recently as I stood on stage, in front of 80 women, most of whom I did not know, and very purposely, and ritually, had 12079160_10153657318971064_3826412685595027616_nmy hair cut then shaved off as I shared some of my most vulnerable secrets of my life – Why? I knew in my soul I had OLD stuff to face, own and let go, and because so often in my life I looked around at the powerful women in my life, women I looked up to who seemed to have it all together, and wondered what made them different from me.

Quiet

Quite – 

This struck me to the core and says it all… 

“Quiet”
Written by MILCK and AG
Produced by AG

put on your face
know your place
shut up and smile
don’t spread your legs
I could do that

But no one knows me no one ever will
if I don’t say something, if I just lie still
Would I be that monster, scare them all away
If I let the-em hear what I have to say

I can’t keep quiet, no oh oh oh oh oh oh
I can’t keep quiet, no oh oh oh oh oh oh
A one woman riot, oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

I can’t keep quiet
For anyone
Anymore

Cuz no one knows me no one ever will
if I don’t say something, take that dry blue pill
they may see that monster, they may run away
But I have to do this, do it anyway
I can’t keep quiet, no oh oh oh oh oh oh
I can’t keep quiet, no oh oh oh oh oh oh
A one woman riot, oh oh oh oh oh oh oh
Oh I can’t keep quiet

Let it out Let it out
Let it out now
There’ll be someone who understands
Let it out Let it out
Let it out now
Must be someone who’ll understand
Let it out Let it out
Let it out now
There’ll be someone who understands
Let it out Let it out
Let it out now

If this resonates with you, know you are loved, and you no longer to keep quiet.   That serves no one. 

Love,

My personal commitment to you is:

For you to know and understand what you have better
so that your business and events run simpler and easier.

Henry Ford didn’t know how to do it all himself.
He understood enough to hire the people who did.

This Is My Goal For You.

Our Deepest Fear – Love

Our Deepest Fear is not that we are Powerful beyond Measure, 

I have come to believe it is that we are loved beyond measure. 

In our deepest darkest secrets where we loath and hate ourselves how can anyone love us because we are so unlovable – even to our selves. 

Our Deepest fear is to let someone into that place, where we are most vulnerable, most in pain, most alone, most unloved  

Will they love us? 

Will they even like us? 

We are clear beyond a shadow of a doubt that we are unlovable

I remember how in the doctors office I had to have stitches removed, and the nurse left me to remove the bandages first – I was slow and afraid of the pain, what I might find, that I might rip it back open again.  The Nurse returned and saw that I had not yet removed the bandages… she said “Now I'm going to have to rip them off”  NOOOOOOOOO  –  Instant Terror 

It did hurt, not as bad as I thought, and in a moment the pain was gone, the wound was cleaned and the stitches removed, and bandaged again.  

They say love hurts, I believe this is the case because if we don't go in and clean out the wounds with love, they continue to fester, go unheard, un cared for, and left alone to scare or worse abscess and parts have to be removed.  

Love hurts, yes, but then it sooths, and heals in the most beautiful ways. 

Dream up a Good Life

Relax, Dream up a Good Life – 

Jim Carrey

 

There are so many things in this world we worry about each day, so much of it is more about what others may think of us than purposely shining our own light.  And choosing to shine our own light brighter each and every day. 

It's been almost a year since I shaved my head – to allow my own light to shine bright. 

I don't regret it one bit – and for all the internal struggles with to keep it shaved or not, there are just as many lives that have been changed, and encourage me to continue with my path. 

Each day I find a way to move through the challenges that arise, and I choose to love my life more and more each day, and more and more each day I choose to have my light shine. 

We each only have this one life to live, to love and to make a difference for someone else. 

What kind of life will you choose to live, to love and to make a difference with? 

 Namaste,

What are you Focusing On?

What are you focusing on? Is it small and compressed and in your face, OR are you looking up to see all that is available to you in the universe?

They tell us what we focus on expands, and it's true, especially with this twist…

If what we are focused on is already small and shrinking… The concentrated energy causes that thing to shrink smaller and faster… Creating a void, a black hole that sucks all in, and if you are not careful, will become totally consuming… Thus expanding the smallness and scarcity of the original thing.

So, right now, stop what you are doing, and get up and take a look out side, go on, I'll give you a minute.
There? Ok, now take a deep breath and breath all that in.
Do it again

Good

Take a good look around you, there is so much more available to you than the smallness and scarcity you have been focusing on…

Just for today, look up and take in all that is there, it's expanse and it's beauty.

You can do it.

I believe in you.

Today I Rise

Today I rise…

Each day I choose to step into more and more of who I was created to be here on this earth in this time. I have a story, I have a message, I have a mission and I will live it.

 

 

 

Never Ever Give Up

Yesterday, last night really, I found my self very present once again to one of the most painful moments of my life. Many years ago, someone very near and dear to me had attempted to commit suicide. I remember when I received the call – it was actually a message on my machine. It was well before the days of cellphones find anyone anywhere… I remember the message saying something like “if you care,…” The person that left me that message had no idea how much I cared, and they were in as much pain as I was,  if not more, because they were the ones that found her.

Connect the Dots

Connecting the Dots, we try to do it looking forward in our lives, but really we can only do it looking backwards.  At some point as we strive for our dreams, and look ahead to the future for the path to take, we realize all we have going forward is faith, and trust. Trust in ourselves, our guts, our instincts, our higher power.

It's time, now more than ever to lean in, to trust yourself, and to take that first step, and then the next, and the next.  Soon, you will begin to see and realize your dreams coming true.  In ways  you never imagined.  It's time ladies and gentlemen, You can do this.

What does “TEAM” really look like?

Hey there – I know you are wondering…

What does “TEAM” really look like?

Today I am starting a new category on my blog- “TEAM” What Is it?

I've been a part of and lead teams for many years, I've been year long “TEAM” training programs…

And, I am passionate about what it takes to have a really good team and what can be achieved when you have a cohesive team…

This will b short and sweet today… and We just had the SuperBowl yesterday…. One TEAM showed up, the other forgot that it was a TEAM that got them to the Superbowl.

It was sad, they both had the same chance / potential to win… but they didn't both play that way…

Out of the day's events I shared a couple of things on Facebook I'd like to share with you…

There comes a time when you surrender to what you must do in order to have what you truly dream of…  ~Lynne Sagen

From coach Pete Carroll just after the game. “In order to build a championship team you must dig deep into the WHY of each person on your team, from top to bottom, and find out their vision of Success, help them align it to the teams goal, and do everything in your power to help them achieve that goal….”

You must honor what is important to your team or you have no loyalty and no team… take care of your team & they move mountains for you…  ~ Lynne Sagen

I truly believe that in any project or adventure I take on in life, my team is the biggest strength and asset I have – And the Lack of “TEAM” can also be the biggest weakness and single point of failure for any endeavor you undertake….

So, Take a moment and check out your relationship to you team and the results you are producing – I promise you good or bad, if you are the team leader the results of the team start with you… and I'll write more on that in another post…

Homework for you today:  Take a moment and find out what is really important to your team, your team members – if you are the leader or not… Being interested shows you value your team, and that makes all the difference in the world.
