I attended a Sales & Marketing seminar with two of the greatest marketing minds; Leela Cosgrove & Thor Saleswarlord . What’s so funny about that you may ask?
Well, I went in there ‘just’ selling Bodysuits and came out crystal clear on my greater mission. I wanted to save women the years of trials, tantrums and tiara-diva’ish outbursts by helping them to reclaim their sparkle.
Has that ever happened to you?
When the how, what & why suddenly becomes crystal clear. Like someone just released the PSI restricting your soul.
I realized how small I had been playing. If the world being your oyster was the sign of expansion, then mine was literally the size of an oyster. You can listen to all the cliché’s in the world but nothing teaches you more than your internal light switch shining brightly or that ‘aha’ moment that we hear so much about. When you are in that zone, EVERYTHING is possible; nothing is off-limits. You can’t imagine ever going back to that dark, lonely, cold place; where you thought that all the ‘great’ things happen to awesome people. Other people.
You almost want to kick yourself for not having realized this sooner. Why did you torture yourself? Why wasn’t it so clear before? And probably a zillion other questions.
What you need to be aware of is that when the student is ready, the teacher appears. I had been aware of Thor & Leela’s programfor a couple of years, but wasn’t prepared mentally, emotionally or financially and I can see clearly now why I had so much resistance to it because I wasn’t ready to deal with or process the teachings.
I also realize that it was the heartache, pain, joys, highs & lows that have allowed me to now create a safe space for other women to blossom, shine and sparkle working from the inside out.
Can you do me a favour now? I mean right now…..
Ask yourself where are you holding back?
Do you still have that sparkle in your eye?
Swagger in your step?
Think about what you have been afraid of. Is it time to let go and let love take over? If you had all the money/time/brains….(insert whatever you like) what would you be doing?
Who do you admire? Why?
How much of them do you see in yourself?
Reach out, connect with peeps who are on the same path as you. When you’re feeling vulnerable, you need mentors, family & friends who understand what you’re going through.
You know that thing that you have been putting off for so long?
Well it’s time gorgeous, time to shine and permanently destroy those shackles holding you back- cue Mary Mary singing ‘taking the shackles of my feet so I can dance, I just wanna praise you!’ Whoop whoop.
I will leave you with this simple quote that I heard somewhere
DO. EPIC. SHIT!
Sums it up quite well really.
