Empowering High-Achieving Women Leaders to Rebalance Their Lives & Up-Level Their Consciousness
“You gotta be kidding me, Sara, are you really saying we’re in for another round?”
Hold on, hear me out for a minute, if you know me by now, you know I’m not the doom and gloom kinda girl.
But I’d be kidding myself (and you) if I came on here with some ‘New Year, New You’ rhetoric (not that I’ve ever been a fan of that type of mentality).
Let’s be totally honest with ourselves, do you really believe that with everything that was ‘rustled up’ in 2020, that we can just go into 2021 with a blank canvas, a fresh start, a new beginning?!
If that were true, then all of the s**t we went through in 2020 would all be for naught.
No, my friends, I can't sugarcoat this for you. 2020 was our initiation. We were shaken up and...
Giving zero f**ks is the latest trend I hear people throwin’ around lately. Yea sure, this sounds cool and all, but it also feels like this is easier said than done, right?!
I mean, anyone can say “I don't give a bleep what so-and-so thinks about me” when in reality, it truly cuts pretty deep.
Btw, let me add an important insert here, being hurt because of the actions or remarks from others is okay and normal. You’re human after all. You're allowed to have feelings and in fact, suppressing your true emotions does more harm than good. So feel the feels.
With that said, having been the type of person who was easily insulted and ruminated on those emotions for days, and now stepping into this new version of myself where the words and actions of others don’t affect my temperament or how I feel about myself...I can honestly say, the latter feels way better and is far more empowering!
That’s the reason I decided to share this article with you so...
No this isn’t clickbait, you read that correctly. I was recently invited to a virtual event hosted by Kelly Roach where she had Gary Vee on to answer our questions (Gar Vee is a serial entrepreneur, investor and social selling expert). Such an inspiring event, but one of my favorite parts was when a health and wellness coach asked Gary if he still stands by his mantra of #nosleep...you know, that mentality of non-stop working hard, hustlin’ & grindin’.
If you’ve heard me speak or read any of my material, you’ll know that I, along with most wellness enthusiasts, are sooooo over the hustle & grind culture. However, this mentality is still incredibly prevalent in the business coaching environment, with more and more instructors subscribing to the #nosleep strategies and ideologies.
Well I was shocked when Gary Vee said point black that he ain’t about that #nosleep life and that in fact, he values sleep and gets around 7 hrs of sleep...
Let me fill you in on a little secret, most of us high-achieving women are overworked and undervalued! Not exactly a secret, you say? Okay, maybe not, but I bet you the underlying reason for this is.
As high-achieving women (many of us entrepreneurs and biz leaders), we can get hooked into the 'hustle & grind' mentality...you know, the one our patriarchal society has programmed into our very way of thinking, you know what I mean right? The work, work, work and never stop until you’re retired, at which point you’re physically, mentally and spiritually burnt out and don’t even know how to reconnect with the real you.
I know that’s not what you want for yourself, and I don’t want it for you either. So I say we stand up and say: “We ain’t having it!!”
There is another way sister and it’s time for us to up-level that mentality and tap into what we’ve always known to be true deep down inside.
It's time for...
