There are days when even I decide that I’ve had enough..ok well maybe not days but certainly minutes. I wonder if people like Oprah or Martin Luther King Jr. or Arlene Dickinson or Rick Hansen ever felt like throwing in the towel?
Don’t get me wrong here: I’m not projecting negative energy I hope what I am trying to do is step into the truth of never giving up on your dreams. In this case it’s my dream: my dream to teach a million women to uncover their passion: turn it into a profit and earn a million dollars doing what they love. This is not an overnight project for me or for any of the women involved. It’s not an easy to do project either: this takes hard work and commitment and these women are prepared to do both. They’ve drawn the line in the sand and they’re going for it…I admire their courage…
Helping Millions Make Millions is the movement and sometimes when I share that with folks: well they look at me kinda strange like perhaps I’ve just escaped from the hospital or I forgot to take my medication that day or I’m just plain delusional. Those folks probably gave up on their dreams a long time ago and I’m not going to let them be dream vampires to me..
I have a picture on my vision board that looks like a crowd of a million people: it’s from Martin Luther King Jr’s speech at Washington in which he is quoted ” I have a dream….” his famous speech and eventually it came true: this dream of dreams. That photo is my inspiration for my own dream of teaching a million women how to become empowered financially….”I have a dream” ” I have a movement” I continue to be inspired by the women who are already on this amazing journey: from teacher to dog walker/ from logistic transportation to dog groomer/ from stay at home mom to wellness masseuse/ from stay at home mom to teacher…They are my inspiration: thank you my friends for believing in your own dreams: for drawing the line in the sand and going for it no matter what. You keep me humble and grateful.
She flew off the back of a moving motorcycle but she doesn’t remember it. They tell her she flew thirty feet in the air and landed on her face. That accident was a year ago and she’s still trying to pull the pieces of her life together. She hasn’t been able to work because she suffers from the effects of a severe concussion. It’s likely she won’t be able to go back to the work she had been doing for the last 25 years.
I met her at the swimming pool today. We were both going to the same aqua fit class and I wasn’t sure where to go and she did so we walked together. I was grateful for her help and happy to speak with somebody new. She’s fearless this woman: she wants to work: she doesn’t want to stay home and not do anything meaningful in her life. I sensed she had a lot to share so I closed my mouth and opened my ears and waited.
Turns out she’s pretty scared of what her future will look like if she can’t work at the same career. Turns out she’s pretty devastated after finding out she may never go back to this job. Turns out it’s no wonder she feels the way she does :that’s pretty dam scary.
I believe we were meant to meet so that she could share her story with me. Choosing to keep myself still and quiet and present during our time together allowed her to open up to me in a way she had not done for quite some time. I was honoured that she felt comfortable enough to trust me with her story.
You know what I learned from this remarkable woman? We all have our challenges: some are big: some not so much but it depends on how you look at it personally. Hearing her story left me wondering how big my obstacles really are….it’s all perspective isn’t it?
Well I’ve given myself a huge challenge and some days it feels just kinda huge. Helping a million women make a million dollars in their life time by turning their passion into profit: that’s the challenge. Most people believe it can’t be done but I don’t believe them. Why do I want to do this? Good question and it’s a long story but here’s the short version. The elephant in this room we call Earth is this: Women make up 53% of the population. Women earn 1% of the wealth…WE are the 99% ladies. That’s gotta change and if it takes me to be one of the change makers well I’m up for it.
Share it out friends I’d love to hear your story.
Now go be fearless.
Oprah featured Donald Trump and his entire family on her show today. Quite a coup for the lady of daytime television. There was a lot of talk about family and business and merging the two without making frenemies…
Oprah speaks often of her ability to keep her work a separate entity in her life as well, so does her friend Gayle…y’all know Gayle right? The illustrious radio/tv talk show host Gayle King…her new show is done really well by the way.
Bama…what the heck is a “bama?” and why use that word in the same sentence as the Donald and Madam Winfrey….Well Bama is a woman, a small business owner I interviewed in Florida a few weeks ago. She owns a restaurant called PJ’s and they’ve been in business for 26 years. Bama bought the business just as the economy was taking a nose dive, in a tourist town where tourists were no longer traveling…I was curious about her success and today I saw a theme I have always known about but feel it very important to share out with my readers.
Each and every one of those people, the Donald, Oprah, Bama: they all say the same thing when asked “How do you stay focused when things get really tough, and they do get really tough?” They may say it a little differently but the intent is this : “do what you love, you MUST be passionate about what you do to make your profits or, when the going gets tough, you’re not going to want to stick around.” Amen to that one my friends, amen to that one!
The last six weeks of my traveling tour, taking my helping millions make millions tour on the road, has been a great adventure, a great learning time and a dedication and devotion to my mission of teaching a million women how to make a million dollars…After talking to so many people about their businesses, people who have lost their homes, people who cried when they came to see my dogs while I walked the beaches because they had lost their pets when they lost their homes, people who are working for $4.23 an hour!, people who are losing their will to live because they can’t afford their medical treatments….I cannot tell you how committed I am to this work. In this land, in this time of the world, people do not need to be hungry…to be fearful of their financial future and the only reason they are is because they’ve not been given the proper tools. Well folks that’s all gonna change, right here, right now: My small business coaching programs will show you how to uncover your passions and turn them into profits so that you, not the banks, not your boss, not the government, will be in charge of your finances!
There are many options to choose from with my new programs, and, if you say money is what is keeping you from signing up, well we can take care of that for you too…http://womenshealthandwellnesscoach.com/products-page/
Come join in the revolution ladies, the financial revolution! It’s YOUR time.
