I am about to celebrate my “21st” birthday – (again) in a few days and the days leading to my birthday is filled with highs and lows…
Amazing how it has been a year since we’ve moved out of our home and moved into the new… I remember last year, I was unpacking our moving boxes when I realized that it’s my birthday and gosh darn it, I was going to celebrate it even if Gary (my husband) was out of town…
OUT WITH THE OLD, IN WITH THE NEW
I changed from my sweats into jeans, told Garrett to do the same and off we went to Fashion Island in Newport Beach, CA… one of our favorite places to walk around in.
I remember Garrett took a video of me last year and the video is below…
I will never forget this particular birthday because even when the emotions are high, it felt as if a HUGE weight was lifted off me. I felt as if I just became UNSTOPPABLE!
It felt as if God was saying to me… “Trust me my child… I have something so much better for you that’s beyond what you can see right now…
What was interesting is that I had full acceptance of the situation. Sure there was sadness and regret but I was full of HOPE. It was then that I found myself saying “NO” to a lot of things:
NO to Mediocrity
NO to Playing It Small
NO to Fear of Failure
NO to Fear of Success
NO to Fear of Not Being Good Enough
NO to Bright and Shiny Objects, and
NO to Negative People and Environment
THEN I SAID YES!
As I said NO to many things, I also said YES to even more possibilities:
YES to Investing In Mentors I Respect and Want To Become
YES to Being Vulnerable
YES to Becoming a Speaker
YES to Sharing My Story To Inspire Others
YES to Writing My Book and Sharing My Story
YES to Creating My Own M90X System
YES to Offering a High End Program
YES to Being More Selective of the People I Spent Time With
YES to Being More Bold About Who I Am and The Purpose I Was Called For.
YES to Being Comfortable to Ask More For My Time
YES to Being More Selective of The Clients I Accept.
YES to Putting Family First
YES to Spirit Driven Marketing
YES to a QUANTUM LEAP!
So guess what? The months after our move was when I generated income that I never thought I was capable of with strategies I never thought I was cut out to do!
3 weeks after the move, I attended Joel Bauer’s Profit Point Speaker Mastery and 2 1/2 months out of the gates, I had my first 2-day “Relational Marketing Secrets” LIVE Event! Shortly after that, I had clients who paid me for my high end consulting and word of mouth was inevitable! Joint Venture offers and Collaboration opportunities started coming before I even really understood what to do with them! It was the most empowering feeling ever!
Something absolutely shifted with the way leaders and influencers perceived me. They now look to me as a peer. Could it be that once I stepped into who I truly was, it was then that I started to emit that high and powerful energy? Friends started coming out of the wood-works to support me and for the first time, I was comfortable receiving their gifts. Oh I can’t wait for you to experience that feeling!
It’s amazing how clarity truly comes after commitment… As soon as I made the decision to listen to my Yeses, doors started opening right and left. Opportunities for collaboration opened up and I was at the best position to take advantage of them. Clients started seeking me and some even had to chase me to pay me!
SO WHAT’S MY BIRTHDAY WISH FOR YOU?
My birthday wish for you, is that you too will start saying YES to the same things I said YES to.
And just as I have been gifted with for the past year, my prayer is that you too will be gifted with:
1) Discernment – to know what’s best for you and your families in this NOW moment.
2) Ease and Grace – that you will allow yourselves to receive the gifts God is holding in safe-keeping for you.
3) Courage – that you are good enough exactly where you are right now.
4) Wisdom – to really understand that you were give all the right parts to succeed.
5) Abundance – that you have access to the same resources successful people have access to… you just need to get out of your own way!
6) Visibility – to broaden your reach so your message can be heard.
7) Influence – to uplevel your circle of influence – increase your network to increase your net worth!
8) Great Health – so you can live life to the fullest and spend more time with those you love.
9) Boldness – so you will start playing bigger games and positively impact more lives.
10) Spirituality – so you can fully realize the untapped potential you have knowing that Success is in your DNA.
