7 Powerful Mantras To Raise Your Self-Worth

November 18, 2014

I know you routinely think about the cards you were dealt in life—because I do, too.

I love quoting that life should rise to meet you. To help you understand what that means, I’ve life-hacked an easy way to trade in the hand of cards you were dealt in life, for the exciting hand that you’ve always wanted in only 40 days. I’m also giving you the 7 most powerful mantras that I personally use to avoid the massive mistakes in giving up too early. Later, you’ll learn how to use the mantras and you’ll be playing big right after your first exercise–the benefits are immediate.

So, life should rise to meet you.

What I really mean is, your dreams should rise to meet your self worth.

My dreams should rise to meet my worth. That sounds big.

And very interesting when applied to my own life.

This seemed like a great piece of inspiration to share with you until I started thinking about the way most women are wired: Big goals. Low self-esteem.

Not surprisingly as a teacher of self-confidence, I ended up turning this piece of inspiration around.

Our self-worth should rise up to meet our biggest dreams.

3 Overlooked Ways To Become An Influential Teacher

November 11, 2014

I am a student of life. Always learning. Always growing. Ever changing. I’ve always been interested in being a student of life.

The other day, my Mom called me after she took Gallup’s Strengthsfinder–she too, is a student of life (getting her Ph.D in Resiliency at 53). She mentioned that in her strengths results, the Gallup experts shared that there should be an exchange of knowledge as a student of life. They explained that 50% of the time you should consume knowledge as a student, and the other 50% should be your tithing to world knowledge. Your giving back of what you’ve learned. Your teaching.

Teaching! Yikes, I only know consumption, or surrender, as a student of life. So, how do I become a teacher with influence?

What Gallup says, is that the science of giving back, of teaching, is greater than only sharing knowledge. Teaching what you’ve learned allows your brain to clear out and make room for new knowledge to retain. It can allow your brain to dump information you’ve already learned–another level of educational surrender, knowing that you don’t need to remember everything. You trust that the knowledge you’ve shared will always come back to you when you’re searching for it.

If you share the information as teacher, your student will share it as a teacher one day. It’s a beautiful, free exchange of information. And should you forget what you’ve taught, one day, because you started the train of information by teaching, you shall learn it again from another student that became a teacher.

Understanding this, I became interested very in teaching. What makes a teacher so influential? How can I go from proficient student to inspiring teacher?

I’ve travelled the world speaking about body image and self confidence, and never stopped to realized that I was teaching. I was sharing my information to start the heeling process for many–I always thought I must go through a professional training to become a teacher (I eventually took a yoga teacher training). After speaking to thousands of people, I’ve learned that to become a great teacher, you don’t need a diploma, you just need to hone these 3 overlooked ways to become a person of influence.

42 Destructive Conversations Even Smart Professional Women Have at 2AM That Contribute to Unhappiness

November 4, 2014

At 2 AM, we’re not thinking about self-confidence. Why is it that we start to doubt ourselves when the world slows down for a bit? Why do we ride ourselves so hard when we’re given an uninterrupted minute to think? Being a woman can be quite complicated, and to prove that, I thought I’d share a staggering recent survey that I took from what 42 professional women (and friends of mine) are thinking about at 2 AM.
“You did that wrong and everybody knows it.”

“Why am I trapped in this body?”

“I’m worried that I hurt someone.”

“Did I do enough?”

“People think I’m unhealthy because I’m plus size. I need to get my life back on track or else I’m going to die early.”

“My body will never be as pretty as my face.”

3 Big Blunders Even Smart Female Entrepreneurs Make That Keep Them Working Way Too Hard To Grow Their Business

October 28, 2014

Don’t let marketing success fool you—usually, it’s a simple recipe that you just need to follow: The hero told the story, was transparent about the dirty issues, and put the horse in front of the cart. And contrary to pop-culture praising, you don’t have to be insanely famous or born into a royal family to create a large following of loyal customers or readers that will buy your product.

In the beginning of my business, I thought I was going to have to throw a lot of money at a PR company to represent me, write a book as soon as possible and keep painful personal secrets to myself because they would be the collapse of my brand. What I now know, is that those are the 3 big blunders that female professionals most often make when trying to grow a lucrative and less-draining business. Keep your operation simple, and use these three examples to help you organically boost your marketing and intrinsic value without spending another dollar:
