Recently I joined a new coaching/mastermind program, a significant investment in my time, energy and money¦a major decision to invest in myself and all that I want to be and become.
Funny, for someone who usually makes quick and confident decisions, making the commitment to this program was quite difficult for me, but it was also one of the best decisions I have made in a long time.
As I sat under my incredibly big and beautiful Beach tree over the weekend, I spent quite a bit of time reflecting on you, the amazing women who share your stories of strength and courage with me; and I was reminded again that what keeps us stuck where we are always come down to one thing; not taking action.
Your desires become intentions and putting them into action is the only way to create what you want.
Unfortunately, while we feel desire and often have wonderful intentions, we fall short in putting them into action. We get stuck around action mode and then beat ourselves up silently in feeling like a failure when we don’t do anything at all¦like we are weak and incapable.
The space between knowing what we truly want and taking action to get it is where most of us get stuck.
It is where our fear sets in.
It is where our inner voice of insecurity works so hard to talk us out of stepping into our dreams.
It is where we step outside our comfort zone and into the uncertainty of our future.
But it is also where our fate and destiny are created.
This space is the opportunity to choose how you want the rest of your life to go. It offers a moment in time when you can stand face to face with your fear, look it in the eye and beat it down with your courage. Yes, you have infinite and abundant courage already within you.
I have known for a while that my work and my life are becoming one¦what started out as a business has become the way I show up in the world personally, professionally and in all of my relationships.
My desire to serve and support you and all women drives my desire to be the best coach and strategist there is; and to do that, I have to be the very best version of myself.
I had known for a while that there was a piece of me that was craving more, but I wasn’t quite able to define exactly what I needed or how to get it. I knew that it had to do with expanding my feminine energy as a woman, and connecting with other women in a deeper, more spiritual and profound way; and I was ready for a new personal coach. So I waited for a sign.
I read the work of and follow all kinds of amazing women on social media, especially Facebook. And as I do, I set an intention of befriending them virtually and I remain open to the potential opportunity to meet them.
As I interacted online with a woman whose work pushes my thinking and resonates with me, one of the other women I follow, was also on the thread and through our conversation, we discovered that she would be driving right through my town on her way home from a conference in NYC. So, we decided to step out of the virtual world and meet in person.
We met for coffee (and cake) and talked for hours; connecting in every way. I shared my desire for more and all of the little bits and pieces that I had been feeling. At the end of our conversation, she shared the opportunity to participate in a coaching/mastermind program¦.a program that is called a Priestessmind and one that she was co-coaching with another woman. It had already started the week before, but it sounded like exactly what I wanted. However, it was a significant time and financial commitment, and I could feel the fear creeping in. There was no sales pitch from her, just a simple sign from the universe that an opportunity was being presented to me.
My heart and soul was ready to jump, but my head was busy talking to me loudly¦
- It’s too much of a time commitment
- It costs too much money
- You don’t know any of the women in it
- How do you know you are going to get anything out of it
- What if it isn’t what you really need
That little inner voice was shrieking, and just wouldn’t stop.
24 hours later, I jumped not knowing anything at all but that I was about to embark on an adventure.
And the second I did, I knew that my life would be changing forever¦and it has already. My soul and intuition knew exactly what I needed and so I found a way. It is definitely hard work and requires a significant amount of discipline and vulnerability, but the discomfort is well worth it.
My life has expanded in more ways than I could have imagined, I am growing emotionally, intellectually, spiritually, financially and in all other ways; and I have done it while building relationships with an extraordinary group of women. Even better, my work with women has been even more fulfilling with women breaking through all kinds of barriers and creating their own new and next chapters.
Your soul knows exactly what you need; all you have to do is wait for a sign and jump.
There will be fear.
There will be a voice of doubt.
There will be uncertainty.
There always is before you can clear a path towards your destiny.
