Become the Leader of your Desires
Today I’m excited to share with you about femininity.
When I think of it, to be honest I think of France. I think of French women. I think of the mindset that couture designers have when they dress a woman’s body. I think of the fact that the Cathedral of Chartres is considered to be the mother womb of spirituality in Europe. I think of French women not even conceiving of not being in their beauty and self-care.
In 1983 the British rock band Eurythmics released an album with the title track "Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)" which went to no. 1 on the Billboard Top 100 charts.
A lot of people, including me, thought it was a cool song. I still think so. If you know the song, you'll no doubt recall the hook "everybody's looking for something." If by chance you don't know the song, pull it up and listen. Although I must warn you, it might stay stuck in your head for a while.
I've come to a place where I bridge two sides of coaching. First, there is the strategy side which says if you do this, then you'll have this result. But there is way more to success than following a simple strategy.
Ask yourself, why does a strategy often not work for so many people? It probably worked for the one that created it but it cannot apply to all. How many times have you seen someone try to apply a strategy that worked well for somebody else but not for them?
Personal leadership is about your potential, possibilities and performance.
As a matter of fact, it penetrates the deeper issues involved in achieving maximum positive impact in work and life. We often say we have desires and dreams, yet we do not lead ourselves towards a bright future of truly meaningful accomplishment.
Are We Postponing Heaven?
“I am thankful for... that Heaven doesn’t need to be postponed.”
It struck me how often and how much we live into when things will be different.
When things are different, or perhaps better in some ways than you perceive that they are now, there will be something else to deal with which you probably aren’t imagining right now.
From Pressure to Peace
As I'm going for my walk, I notice that I am experiencing pressure with a lot to do, and a lot more to handle going forward. I feel the pressure.
Only to remember while waiting for the light to turn to the walking signal for the pedestrian, that I recall that pressure is made up. It is a state of mind.
Catalyst to Mastery
My mother was the source. As all mothers are.
My daughter was the catalyst.
Money has so much tension and stress wrapped around it. Yet, money is just an energy. It has the energy you project onto it.
Money is also wrapped up with a great deal of lies. When you believe the lies, you increase your level of anxiety around it.
I have come to realize that all the teachings and all the understandings we accumulate on our path to personal development can suddenly seem like total bullshit when the process no longer works.
What I lost in the process of all the coaching I received over the years, was trust in myself. I will say that most likely I never had it, even though I thought I did, and more than that, I believed I trusted people, probably so much so, that I had blind faith. Not a good thing to have at all because you might be taken advantage of.
The Well-Rested Woman
There is a revolution going on, a movement, if you will, for women to be and to feel well-rested.
Sound impossible? I get it. It's all too often that I hear women tell me that they are exhausted, overwhelmed, burned out, fatigued... I was one of them!
