I’ve been thinking a lot lately about happiness. Sure, it’s my job to teach this stuff to you, but lately, it’s been personal. See, my life was out of whack. It’s embarrassing to admit this to you, but I became so afraid that I wouldn’t be successful, so wrapped up in comparing myself to OTHER coaches, so obsessed with pursuing fortune and fame, that I almost lost track of of who I am.
I now remember: I am a woman on purpose. And to honor this remembrance, below is an invitation for a totally free gift to you – keep reading and enjoy! 🙂
As I mentioned in a recent blog post, I almost gave up my purpose to make a buck. I was trying to fit a mold that a big-time agent told me I had to do to make it big. It wasn’t until he called me “An F’ing Idiot” for not wanting to work with a demeaning multimillionaire who videotaped me unknowingly, that I fell to my knees and surrendered.
In that moment, my truth returned. I remembered YOU. My faithful readers, my loyal clients. You whom I serve. You whom I live to impact. YOU are why I left corporate America. When I left my 6-figure VP job and moved across the country to study positive psychology, I said that if I impacted just one life – just ONE – then it will have been worth it. I would be happy.
What would be worth it to you to live on purpose? What would make you really happy? Not fleeting momentary happiness of chocolate, sex, or even an extra $20K. I mean deep down FULFILLMENT. The kind of happiness that overflows your heart and seeps through your veins.
This week I received three gifts from clients:
- A bouquet of flowers with a note saying, “Thank you for inspiring us and helping teach us how to make our brilliance shine.”
- A card from another saying, “Thank you for being. Thank you for asking the right questions and helping me find MY TRUTH.”
- A note from another saying, “I want to say thanks. I remember back to our first phone call. To say I was languishing would be an understatement. I felt hopeless and truly out of options. I wanted to just disappear because I thought it would be easier than living in such misery every day. I had forgotten who I was and what I had in my life. Fast forward to today. Nothing around me is perfect. My kids are still challenging. People are melting down around me at work like popsicles on a hot day. But, I have a bright and shining core in me. I see and feel potential again. I know my strengths and feel empowered to use them. There is not a day that I do not perform self-care and give myself permission to be human. Most of all, I want to LIVE OUT LOUD instead of disappearing. I have started dreaming again and I plan to fulfill them because I've rediscovered that I'm freaking awesome.”
I mean, WOW! I am so blessed. This is why I do what I do. She IS awesome! They all are! And so are you!
These three women remind me why I am here. I am a woman on purpose. I live to make a difference. My job is to shine my light brightly on the world so that you can shine yours. Yes, I want to make money, and in just a few years of coaching, I’m back to where I was in corporate America… and I believe that I can move the masses, and in a short amount of time I got a spot on SiriusXM. But that’s not why I’m here. I am here to live my purpose – to help you LIVE YOUR PUPROSE.
And so, I am inspired to offer you a gift. Beginning today, I am launching a new totally complimentary teleseminar series: Purpose Power Hour. Every month, I will focus a blog or two on a component of living as a woman (or man) on purpose and hold a 100% free teleseminar for YOU. It’s my way of saying thank you! Topics include:
- Using Your Strengths
- Hope and Optimism
- And MORE!
The first Purpose Power Hour is April 21, and the topic is Hope and Optimism. To sign up, register here. Also, please use this link to invite your family and friends to register. Again, this is totally free. It is my way of giving back and living on purpose. Remembering that when I serve, when I give, then I receive.
With so much love,
