Have you ever noticed what happens when you need to figure something out and ask for help?
I have noticed that every time I needed to retool, learn something, or figure it out, when I ask for help, I immediately accelerated getting the results I wanted.
Over the past 30 years in my career, asking for help when I needed it has been a sign of vulnerability, which has paid me dividends.
You see, for me, time is of the essence. I have a business to run, my son, and myself to support. And I have responsibilities in my life that fall 100% on me.
I don't have the luxury to wait for three, five, seven, or ten years until I figure things out on my own in my new career path. I'm 51 years old.
So, what I have done is I have sought out the support of coaches, mentors, and partners with whom I align and who I believe will help me accelerate learning what I need to grow personally and professionally. And as a result, my business and relationships are growing.
The beliefs that support me to grow and move forward are..
"I have potential."
"Failure is not an option."
"I am worthy of support and success."
As a professional woman, I want to continue to evolve and enjoy the most peace and joy in my business, from a place of abundance.
I want to continue to serve my clients and help them rise to their leadership potential.
What about you? What beliefs are supporting you to grow (or not)?
I believe everybody has potential. And my role and pleasure are to create a safe space and a soft landing so that my clients and partners feel safe and can get out of their own way to live their fullest version of who they are here to live.
It is my honor to do that for my clients, and watching them blossom and witnessing their growth, right in front of my eyes, gives me such pleasure; words cannot describe it.
Similarly, over the past 20 years, sometimes slower, and other times much faster, I have devoted myself to get out of my own way to create a life that's compelling, and that delights me.
This period is the end of a season and the beginning of another. As the kids adjust to their new school schedules, and things begin to settle in at work in this "next normal," what beliefs will carry you into this next period of growth in your career and personal life?
Life as we knew it would never be the same again. And that's okay. In many respects, thank goodness that's the case. If they stayed the same, it would mean that we are not making progress, and who wants that?
So, how are your current beliefs aligned with what you want in your career and life?
You have options:
--Wait another year to take on that project or achieve that goal you wanted in your role or your relationship?
--Wait and see what happens, and hope that the promotion or changes you're looking for land on your lap or that you find that role that you've desired for years?
--Or instead, you can begin to understand what is significant for you and your strengths so that you can leverage them at work in your role or business?
Whatever it is you wish for in this new season, as your advocate, I'm here to remind you that you are the only one who wields power and response-ability to make it happen.
Your career & well-being is 100% yours to own.
There's a great saying that I truly appreciate: "When the student is ready, the teacher appears."
Recently, over five glorious days, I hosted the Fearless Leaders Challenge--with over 80 leaders registered to attend, and donated over 1,750 meals to change the lives of those in the most need through Feeding America, on behalf of everyone that opted-in.
In only a matter of a few days, for one hour a day, Challenge members who engaged learned how to catapult to their next level of clarity. They assessed their mindset and beliefs concerning their goals.
They also increased their understanding of their personal brand and unique value, boosting their confidence and self-awareness.
With their desired achievements in mind, they highlighted the strengths and challenges they could leverage and address to succeed in the end. And with expert guidance, they worked on creating a realistic and inspiring action plan and roadmap.
They even received BONUS tools to help them identify the FEARS that often get in their way!
The members who put in the effort walked away with customized tools and strategies to support their growth professionally and personally, with specific answers to questions that they had not been able to answer before.
For a limited time, I'm gifting you a BONUS by extending the Fearless Leaders Challenge ** REPLAY EDITION **
To experience the benefits and take advantage of this FREE training before it disappears, REGISTER, and get started ASAP.
The five-day Fearless Leaders Challenge is 100% virtual and structured to inspire and gently guide you, including tools, special guest interviews, and an inspiring community of other fearless leaders.
Once you register, you'll receive an email with the links to access the training. And for the next five days, you'll also stay focused through training prompts, Action Items, and a daily Challenge.
If you want more clarity, actionable steps, and encouragement, the Challenge provides the structure you'll need to gain momentum and chart your way forward for the rest of this season.
What is the value of clarity? In my opinion, it's fundamental and priceless.
Knock, knock, knock—opportunity is knocking.
What you believe about your potential and your future is ALL TRUE!
From this day forward, know that everything you think, say, and do reflect your belief system.
If you find yourself not taking constructive action to wield your personal power and create what you desire, question, "What do I believe about this?" And you will discover the beliefs that are currently preventing you from making the progress that you want. Furthermore, get curious about the thoughts that WILL support you to make it happen.
Give it a try. At a minimum, if you choose to take me on this Challenge, you will gain from this FREE training the safe space to self-reflect, which is extremely valuable now.
You'll learn how to discover your unique value proposition and explore how to leverage it in pursuit of your goals.
You'll also gain insights about your challenges, the fears that may be keeping you in inertia, and guidance on how to create a realistic 12-month action plan that reflects what's most important to you.
But don't take my word for it, you be the judge. Register at www.FearlessLeadersChallenge.com during this BONUS extension, and I will see you on the other side.
