There's Power in Numbers

I spent my Saturday night speaking at a Female Enrichment Forum presented by Dr. Amy Hymes, an organizational psychologist that hosts events to empower and equip women to achieve a higher level of success. During my speech, I shared what it means to “Get Radical” and gave some real world examples of how women are stepping out of their comfort zone to decide what they want and then becoming bold and courageous enough to go after it.

The energy in the room was incredible. There’s something exhilarating about getting together with a group of people who are focused on continually getting better and improving themselves. Everyone should be a part of a group like that. Whether it’s a professional group, a social group, or just a group of friends who make a point of getting together and helping each other succeed. It’s an opportunity to learn from others, get new ideas, and create a larger network of people who can have a positive impact on your life.

One of the exercises the group did was to define what success meant to them. I LOVED that because I’m a firm believer that true success is self defined. It can’t be defined for you – not by your parents, your friends, society, or celebrities. Some will say Donald Trump is successful. Others will say Mother Theresa. The question is: What do you say?

Only you can say what your “success” looks like. And only when you get clear on what that definition is for you, can you begin to take the steps to get exactly what you want out of your life.
This seems like a great time to share with you 2 of my upcoming teleclasses. These classes provide a chance to get together with people who are focused on continually getting better and improving themselves.

  1. I agree--It is so important to define what success means and also to be cognizant about WHY we want to reach a certain level of "success". So many times, I see people pursuing goals for all the wrong reasons. That's crazy!
    Hopefully you taped your speaking engagement with Dr. Hymes. I would love to see it! :)
