Have you ever really wanted to do something that feels exactly like what you need, yet you talk yourself out of it because you don’t have the time or the money?
We’ve all been there, and to some extent this can happen in small degrees on a daily basis. Of course it’s important to be grounded in reality, but you can’t always know all the reasons why upfront, or the entire roadmap of the how.
Sometimes you just have to go with that deeply intuitive feeling that propels you forward.
I made a bold move in September to purchase tickets for a conference in New York happening in June with Nathalie Lussier, one of my online business mentors. Even though it was a long time away and money was tight, I loved her style, and didn’t want to pass up the chance to receive her instruction live and in person. Plus, if I purchased my ticket early I’d get to attend a VIP lunch with her and some of the other speakers (I’m a huge fan of bonuses!). So I took the plunge and bought my ticket.
The event was Off the Charts Live, and, well, it was off the charts! The value of what I received far outweighed the cost of the event or getting there, and I am bursting at the seams with knowledge and inspiration I can’t wait to implement.
It all started with making the commitment to invest in myself.
Purchasing the event ticket well in advance meant I had to follow through and get there. As soon as I had money for it, the airfare was purchased, even though it meant scraping by in other areas. Everyday I’m embracing the power of asking for help, and I did just that for my accommodations. I spent the first night with an old friend from high school, having a fantastic time catching up. The rest of the weekend I stayed in a gorgeous apartment on the Upper West Side, facing Central Park, lovingly entrusted to me by parents of a dear friend who had never even met me.
Amazing how the Universe shows up for you when you invest in yourself, ask for guidance, and reach out for assistance.
Of course, being in New York City is a magical experience in itself. Add to it an event that doles out a multitude of valuable information, practical guidance, and serious inspiration and you just can’t go wrong. Day one I felt overwhelmed with information, knowing it had so much value but not yet knowing how it all integrated. Day two it all came together for me, I received the exact clarity I needed and everything that was brewing up until that moment finally made sense.
The path ahead became solid in my vision, and I received the exact motivation necessary to forge ahead with confidence and excitement.
My favorite goddesses of the weekend, Varelie, Jessie, and Jillian. So many girl crushes!
Best of all, of course, was the people. Intelligent, creative, beautiful women entrepreneurs paving their own way in the world surrounded me all weekend. I bonded with a select few incredible goddesses with whom I know I will continue to conspire and collaborate. They filled my soul and gave me the exact reinforcement I needed to know that I’m totally on the right track. I also got to interact with Nathalie on several occasions, and exchange a couple of hugs, which was a huge energy boost. She’s such a smart and lovely lady clearly pulling in high quality women from all over the globe. Priceless!
The whole experience served as an important reminder that investing in yourself is always a good idea. When you believe in yourself and your worth, you never stop learning, growing, and expanding. There are an infinite number of people, places, and experiences to learn from, and by making a strong commitment to self-improvement, the payoff is massive, even if you can’t see it ahead of time.
I can’t wait for all that I have to present to you over the coming weeks, including a program that will take your goddess self to a whole new level. Yes!!
