So, did you take time to accept the challenge in yesterday's blog? Did you find time to get still and quiet, to answer the question: Are you a woman of power? It's not too late to do this, and it is a helpful step in your journey over the next 66 days. Why? Because, I am sure you have not slowed down recently to notice how you have evolved as a person. Nor have you intentionally taken inventory of just how valuable you are to the rest of us. Life keeps us busy and distracted, so slowing down is a must. If the definition of "power" is the ability and capacity- to do , to accomplish and influence, then we have to take time to determine in what areas do we have this power.
Ask yourself, what am I good at? What gifts and talents do I possess, that can benefit others as well as my own house? Is my power in my hands or my mouth? When I see progress and success personally, professional or otherwise where does it come from?
I have known since I was a girl that I have the gift of gab. I would offer advice that people did not solicit, I could provide creative solutions and resolve to both simple and complicated situations without much effort. I can create content and create processes from scratch. However, I was spilling my gift on the streets for free. Trust that once you place value you on your power and expertise, so will others. Harness you power and use it wisely. You have been trusted with gifts and talents to produce a return on the investment. What's in you house? Your second challenge is to make a list of your "power", and share it with the tribe. Talk with you soon, until then be brilliant!
It is definitely a new season and I am really excited! Fall is my favorite time of year for many reasons. Here is my short list of reasons why: I love the Thanksgiving holiday, I married the love of my life in November, the weather is perfect in November, hot chocolate is in season, the colors outside are beautiful, and the fashion options are the best. I launched my business back in 2014, with big hopes of so many things that year. Some of those hopes realized right away , while others are still on their way in my direction as I type this post. I have been privileged to have some amazing speaking doors and live events in the last couple years. I have met some amazing people, and trained with the best. Right now I am gearing up for an amazing year in 2017! This last quarter of 2016, with roughly 67 days and about 8 hours left presents us all the perfect opportunity to prepare. Let me ask this question- "What are you intentionally preparing to do, to be, or to execute in 2017?" Before you reply, I'm not inquiring about new years resolutions. Instead, I'd like to hear about your concrete plans to showcase your brilliance on the planet. I'd like to know if you are wrapping up quarterly calendars of events for your organization, finalizing chapters in your book, and adding final touches to your personal development goals? Maybe your plans are focused around family, health, spirituality or finance. Don't waste time as this is the final quarter of the year, and their is still plenty of time to prepare for what's to come and make an impact as you exit 2016. Declare with me, "I am a Woman of Power!" Today I am initiating rich dialogue with you all regarding this declaration. "I am a Woman of Power!" Power is the ability and capacity - to do, to accomplish, to influence the behavior of others and/or the course of events. I challenge you to get still and quiet within the day or so, and answer this question for your self and share - are you a woman power? Let's Go...
