What Makes Successful People Shine

What do successful people like Oprah, Louise Hay, Michelle Obama, Ellen DeGeneres, and Lady Gaga do that makes them not only SUCCESSFUL in life but also SHINE so bright they naturally serve others? They foster and integrate their SPIRITUALITY and ENERGY into their life and let it influence their work so that others can rise and shine, too!

Truly successful people shine because they moved past fear to manifest through their Soul Truth!  They know what they’re here to do!

This is SO powerfully positive and yet…so many (women especially) live on the sidelines.

Why Do So Many Women
Live On The Sidelines?

According to research,Impostor Syndrome”affects about 70% of us!! WHOA!! But the adverse impact on women is especially hard because we are emotional nurturers caring for everyone else BEFORE we choose to help ourselves.

This leads to women being misguided to think things like…

  • we aren’t “meant for more” in our life,
  • we have a role to care for everyone else, so they can rise up.

Then…we suffer the consequences!!  We feel undeserving, powerless, lost…and SMALL.

When we feel small, we lean into MEDIOCRITY...and so mediocre is our experience in every area of life, including mediocre thinking, feeling, and even experience small and mediocre WEALTH and PROSPERITY!!

As a mother, I had to change this small thinking IMMEDIATELY for myself, my family and especially for my children and for the generations after me.

Think about it!!  What was I teaching my kids????

By staying small and mediocre, what was I teaching my daughter?
…to be like me?
By staying small and mediocre, what was I teaching my son?
…to see and accept women as small and mediocre?

No way! Change starts with us, right?  Even if you DON’T have children, know that you teach by how you show up.

So here’s the thing remember…

You, too, can do what successful people do and foster and integrate your own
SPIRITUALITY and ENERGY into your life and let it positively influence
YOUR life and YOUR work so that YOU and others can rise and shine, too!

This supports your ability to drastically reduce SELF-SABOTAGE and finally WELCOME ABUNDANCE!

YOU are meant for so much more!!  No exceptions!! Your life must include work and/or time for your own creativity to flow so that you can understand and manifest through your Soul Truth.  In other words, your PURPOSE for being here.  Oh…and please…never doubt you have a gift to share (it’s the reason you’re here).  When you share your gift, you serve others, and you manifest through Divine Mission and purpose). Again… No exceptions.

When you share your gift, you serve others in meaningful ways. No exceptions.Click To Tweet

Expanding your Spiritual Growth, your Light, and intellectualizing Energy is POWERFUL beyond measure bringing:

1. Soul Truth (Purpose and Meaning Into Your Life)

Spiritual growth and intellectualizing energy empower you to become an active participant in fulfilling your purpose (bringing meaning back into your life).  When you choose purpose, you flip the switch from chasing down what you want to ATTRACTING IT.

When you bring purpose into your life, LOVE expands (raising your vibration) bringing your own life back into alignment leaving you feeling fulfilled and joyful. This LOVE emanating from you is what brings unity back into your communities and families and it supports the empowerment of yourself as well as others.  Competition is eradicated and true acceptance of ABUNDANCE is available for everyone (including your self). No exceptions.

In no way does this mean STOP life and leave everything you’ve ever known in the pursuit of purpose (we must be reasonable and practical). It simply means to create time and space and make purpose (finding it and following it) a part of your life even when life gets hectic and crazy!

2. Access To Deeper Knowledge

Spiritual growth and intellectualizing energy gives you access to the mysteries of the Universe helping you uncover deep knowledge, skill, wisdom, and deeper understanding. When you effectively integrate Spirituality and energy expansion into your life, you open up your world giving way to deeper knowledge and expanding your own intuition that you can hear or feel, and most important—TRUST!

3. Solutions With Grace

Spiritual growth and intellectualizing energy supports expansion and your capacity to see solutions to problems that have kept you confused and small. Effectively, what’s seemingly “right” for everyone else is ok but more important here is what’s right for you (even when it’s different from what everyone else is doing). You PRIMARILY trust the process of solutions generated by you with grace and ease. You lean into that deeper wisdom along with trusting the Divine timing of the process you choose to follow. Solutions like this expand your ability to tap into Universal Wisdom, and an expanded ability to see it with clarity no matter what everyone else is doing.

4. Mental Strength

Spiritual growth and intellectualizing energy keeps you strong (even when times are tough and scary). Not only that, when you ACTIVELY make a decision to grow spiritually, you are not being blown away with every change coming from overly righteous religious and political leaders (and their scare tactics). You’ll naturally deflect the constant and sensational news and worry and you won’t fall so easily into what everyone else is doing, either! But rather, you’ll be able to recognize your own Soul Truth and CONFIDENTLY listen to your own empowered guidance.

Community Supports and
Expands Your Strength!

When you feel mentally strong you recognize (without the requirement of approval from others) the value of investing your time, energy and resources into the things that keep you strong! A dedicated and high-quality community dedicated to nurturing your Spiritual Growth and Energy Expansion does this for you. Placing yourself in the right communities keeps you strong and provides validation and confirmation that supports your continued journey to Spiritual Growth and Energy Expansion.

Getting validation and confirmation is not a sign of weakness…quite the opposite!! Validation and confirmation expand your energetic potency and strength and keeps you away from fantastical wishful thinking so that you can stay confident and consistent in purposeful action that provides meaningful RESULTS in your life.

If you want to change the quality of your life, you must then improve the quality of your thinking and doing and a community supporting you keeps you on track for the long-term. You don’t have to do this alone. In fact, if you do approach your personal growth alone, expect to go very slow and expect a tougher time coming back from set backs.

You see, LIFE HAPPENS! Life can definitely feel CRAZY sometimes and we stubbornly fall right back into old habits if we’re not careful. Here is where a community is keythere will be times in your life when others in your community will have the strength for you when you lack it and times when you will the have the strength to spare. A community TOGETHER, keeps you GOing and we keep GROWing. 

5. Self-Worth

Spiritual growth and intellectualizing energy raises your own sense of WORTH and it empowers you to add VALUE to other people’s lives through service, through your gift and talents, through ___________ (fill in the blank because the possibilities are infinite and ABUNDANT just like the Universe). This promotes your own ability to POSITIVELY influence your WEALTH and ABUNDANCE.  Yes… I’m talking about your wealth and prosperity!!

When you experience the FULL circle of success that includes Spiritual Growth and Energy Expansion, your self-worth skyrockets. Your sense of clarity about the things that no longer serve you will be so much easier to lovingly let go so that you can LIVE LIFE with LOVE, PURPOSE, and PROSPERITY.

The world needs more beacons of light.

It’s time for YOU to shine…
