INSECURE... not comfortable being me.
It didn't show to the outside world because I was bossy and put up a pretty good confidence facade.
But I felt it every day.
🤷🏻 I didn’t like being seen.
🤷🏻 I didn’t feel comfortable in front of an audience.
🤷🏻 I felt like I was having a seizure every time I had to give a speech or be on stage.
🤷🏻 I was uncomfortable AF in my own skin.
Over the past seven years I have travelled worldwide to speak at conferences, hosted workshops and have helped thousands of women all over the world to R.E.C.L.A.I.M. their PowHER.
You see I knew that my purpose required me to be on camera, in front of audiences and walking in power. I am the face of my brand so if I didn't tap into the power to "show up" I was in trouble.
I remember when I hated taking pictures. My father owned a recording and television studio and I hated being on camera. I would cringe and feel very uncomfortable.
But I made a decision to move beyond the discomfort and as I did this I found myself feeling more comfortable in front of people and being seen.
But I still had something else I needed to work on...
Even though I had made a decision to power through, energetically something was missing. And even though I felt better taking pictures and I mustered up the courage to be in front of a video camera, there was something else that wasn't quite right.
It took me a few years to discover what it was. You see growing up I never believed I was as beautiful or as smart as everyone around me.
🤦♀️ I grew up insecure and defensive.
🤦♀️ I was the one that everybody judged.
🤦♀️ I was the one who was overweight.
In some ways, it even showed up in my business too because I struggled at times with my confidence and belief in myself.
Because I never believed I was valuable, or even worthy often times, I never fully owned my power in front of others. Because I never believed I was enough, I doubted my own brilliance in my personal and professional capacities and didn’t fully walk in my PowHER.
When I realized this, I was surprised how my old identity kept me from really becoming the best version of myself personally and professionally.
Although I’m sharing about my evolution of owning my beauty, my gifts, my power and being comfortable in front of others, it’s more than that...
It’s about BELIEVING in yourself, OWNING who you are and BECOMING the greatest version of yourself by stepping into the fullest potential of the brilliant, amazing, and PowHER that is YOU.
For me to authentically show up as my beautiful, bright, magnetic self, I had to break my old self identity and limiting beliefs about me and create new ones.
I had to do the inner work to embrace my power, beauty and magnificence on a deep energetic level.
Every day, affirming, visualizing and feeling this beautiful Divine Feminine radiating from the depths of my soul.
I did this every day, until I believed in my core I was the beautiful, brilliant, powerful goddess that I was created to be.
Now this didn’t happen instantly, but because I was willing and determined to shift is the reason why I now show up dramatically different in my life and business.
My entire essence and way of being shifted by breaking free of this old self identity and creating a new one.
🌟 It all starts from a thought.
🌟 Then a belief and a feeling.
🌟 Once you master all of these, you become the highest version of yourself.
You become the radiant and magnetic person you were born to be. It starts from within... you have to do the inner work.
💖 It starts with fully understanding who you are and what you desire.
💖 It starts with owning your amazing, your gifts and your PowHER.
💖 It starts with radiating the essence and authenticity of YOU.
It starts by becoming the GREATEST VERSION of yourself so your brilliance, inner glow, spark, essence, and magnetism shine from the inside out.
Becoming the best version of yourself will ensure that you, and others, fall in love with you.
And this is exactly why I teach my clients to R.E.C.L.A.I.M. Your PowHER.
They become the greatest, fullest expression of themselves by OWNING their amazing and walking into their potential, purpose and PowHER.
Because nothing will outshine your radiance and magnetism when you connect to your authentic self.
You have the power to remove your old self identity, create a new identity, and build a life that supports the new identity.
But the first step is to DECIDE to take the ACTION.
To DECIDE to FACE your shit and OWN your brilliance.
To DECIDE to FULLY COMMIT to do what it takes to show up PowHERfully DAILY!
You were BORN to be amazing.
You were BORN to be PowHERful.
You were BORN to be a light in this world.
You were BORN for a purpose.
You were BORN to make a difference.
It’s time to DECIDE to be who and what you truly are.
Are you ready to R.E.C.L.A.I.M. Your PowHER?
