If my grandfather, Norbert Reinstein, were still alive, today would be his 101st birthday. It is from him that I learned persistence and resilience. Because of him, I am a survivor.
My grandfather was a Holocaust survivor who never complained about the curveballs that life threw him. He escaped to America, he married the love of his life, he served this country, he supported his community, and after being kicked out of medical school for being Jewish, he shifted his work and created great success to support his children. He was a hero. And he never complained.
Rather, he was full of love and gratitude. He made the most of life. It's as if he knew about positive psychology and mindfulness and gratitude before the terms were fashionable, or even existed. He exemplified freedom. Freedom of choice, freedom to live as he desired, freedom from mean, nasty, negative mind traps that hold you back.
He broke free.
Today, we live in a free country, yet so many of us remain trapped in jobs we hate, relationships that drain us, and mind chatter that ruins our self-esteem. Why?
Why are we killing our spirits when all they want is to be FREE?
Because we know no other way. Our minds are geared toward negativity and anxiety has kept us alive (think of our ancestors in the jungle with saber toothed tigers… stress was key to survival!)
But what you want now is not to survive – but to THRIVE!
And to THRIVE, you must take risks. To THRIVE, you must follow your HEART. To THRIVE you must be willing to break free and fly.
You can break free. Last week, I hosted one of my strong, beautiful, powerful clients for a VIP PurposePower Day. Though she is a successful woman in business and has 2 wonderful children, old stories about her worth held her back from going for her greatest potential. Together, we released those old stories, we let go of the past, and FREED her spirit to take off! She is on a path to her creative genius, ready to talk to her company about her leadership path, and getting her passport ready for the travel she's always wanted. WOOHOO! Spread your wings, girl!
And last week, on my show, Break Free, on the Whatever It Takes Network, I interviewed an amazing single mom of 3 who left her cushy job to start a new wellness center in New York City. Her heart and soul begged to be set free, so she spread her wings and is now in flight. Watch this for amazing inspiration.
AND, for more inspiration to break free, TODAY at 11 am ET, I am interviewing my former client, the incredible Katy Allred, of The Mostly Mindful Mommy, who broke free of her fears to follow her mindfulness purpose. Yes, she is a brilliant corporate leader, and mom, AND started her own purposeful business BECAUSE she is FREE. On my radio show, she is going to teach you how to FREE YOUR MIND, how to de-stress and be in the moment as a mom and as a family. To listen LIVE, click here.
WHEW! That is a lot of FREEDOM news for you, but I want you to have every bit of inspiration you can get!
To love your life, you must first break free. To flourish, you must spread your wings and fly.
