Empowerment and inner fulfillment

Empowerment and inner fulfillment

To me, having inner fulfillment is something I prioritize every day. I generally wake up happy feeling peaceful inside, something I tend to take for granted until something happens that I can’t shake. I’ve learned over the years that it’s often not mine, simply me being aware, yet in the moment it occurs as real as it’ll be one of those moments in life where you have something similar going on. So you buy that energy as yours. It could be someone you bump into when walking or driving, in other words, a stranger.

Of course, at time it could be the people that you hang, work, live with, which can make it a bit harder to separate. So when you end up caught up in the moment, in a vibe that isn’t working for you, what can you do?

The first step is simply dropping any barriers that you have, any type of protection, defense, standby mode, waiting game type of energy. I get that it’s contradictory to drop your barriers when you are in fight or flight mode yet if what you’re reacting to is not you, then why hang onto it? It’s like the good ole’ “surrender” piece, but quicker and without any logic.

So are you ready to drop your barriers? Ask your body to drop the barriers/walls to way below your feet and trust that your body will.

Next, take FIVE deep breaths and just focus on breathing deeply in & out. For any thought that pops in your head or passes by simply say “bye bye”.

Third, connect with the inner you, you know the being in your body that might be talking right back at ya, and expand it beyond the room you’re in, beyond the house, neighborhood, city, state, country, continent, planet, and as far out as your inner being desire to go. Continue breathing deeply.

Are you yawning yet? Releasing that energy? Feeling a shift? Take a couple of more deep breaths and thank your body. You can do this whether you are still or moving. I like to close my eyes if I’m sitting down, to focus, yet that’s optional.

Have you ever wondered

Have you ever wondered

… what you would create if you tapped into even a fraction of the full potential of who you are?

That is how I feel about strengths coaching. While I embarked in a slightly new direction as an independent Gallup-Certified Strengths Coach in 2016, it compliments all the tools I’ve played with prior, like Access Consciousness. Those of you who know me, know that I’m a mix n’ match person after all! With time who knows what this evolves into? I’ve spent most of my life advising & coaching while learning, exploring and implementing the tools in my own life and the businesses I’ve been involved with and asking open-ended questions is one of the keys to creation.

In this social media era, I’ve realized the importance of having an online presence of my personal brand so I retired my old websites (previously creativepower4u.com and space-2-play.com), and am now blogging here. I will infuse as much of my voice & vibe as I can so that you get a sense of who I am and what I stand for and also add my older posts, slightly tweaked, as they may add value.

Imagine the world we could create if everyone focused on what could be created and stepped into our greatness? What if we focused on developing our unique talents into strengths and used them every day? What if we acknowledged each person’s unique mix of talents? After all, it’s how we’re wired so what if that is not a problem?!

What I love about the Clifton StrengthFinder® Assessment is that my signature themes have remained the same over the years. Sure the order shifted a little yet when I took the assessment 12 years later yet all but one are still in my Top 10, 12 years later. During these years I’ve been focused on transformational work so the fact that the results are still the same speaks volumes of the “strengths” of this assessment. Everyone I know and that I’ve coached so far all say “that’s so me”. The next question often is, OK so now what? How can I use this? That’s where I can help!

Today, 16,312,161 million people have taken this assessment globally, with thousands added daily!

My movement is to inspire you to explore new possibilities + use your unique strengths to create a life & living that is fun + empowering to you. I wonder what that would look like to you?
