Show Notes:

FINDING YOUR PURPOSE

  • We grew in an environment where our parents and relatives told what should we be doing. They have high hopes or expectations for us but they may not be aligned to what is our real purpose.
  • We don’t want our parents or relatives to shape and mold to who do we think we are and become. What we want to make sure is that it is an alignment to who we are to our real purpose to be.
  • You should figure that thing out what is it that you really enjoy doing. What you are passionate about is often your purpose.
  • If you are looking for personal fulfillment a lot of times comes from volunteering where even you don’t get paid for it but fulfills you.
  • Once we figure out what our purpose is, what are we supposed to be doing to profit on then we must be in the position to give back and volunteer to help bring someone else’s along and that comes where the personal fulfillment comes in. Personal fulfillment leads you to your purpose.

LOVING YOURSELF

  • This is one of the barriers that keep us from truly achieving our fullest potential. The promise of loving yourself means I love everything about me the good and the bad. Sometimes we only chose the good things about us but you also have to fall in love with the parts of ourselves that you hate.
  • Love it to the point that you want to change it. Loving yourself is really an inside job, it is a gift to understand who they are and when they knew who they are the good, the bad and the not so good then we won’t judge people that are harsh, because we accept those things about us.
  • “I love myself and I know I’m not perfect so I know that person probably not perfect and I can still love them and allow for grace when people mess up.”
  •  When we get out our comfort zone the most interesting things happen. That’s where the growth starts to happen when you are outside where you are comfortable with.
  • We should sometimes travel to the unknown to learn what we need to.

UNITING WOMEN AND SISTER, GETTING RID OF COMPETITION AND JEALOUSY

  • Sometimes we are thought to believe that our sources are scarce therefore there is not enough for all of us and that leads to competition. When we someone else’s excelling you start comparing yourself to them. You have to change your mindset, you have to start operating from a mindset of abundance knowing that there is more than enough for all of us.
  • When you have an abundance mindset then the competition no longer exists amongst us and you’ll get rid of the comparison. We often think of our lack; we often think of our small situation.
  • We don’t realize the abundance around us that’s why people are stepping in our lives to help us unlock our scarcity mindset to think I don’t have what I need to be successful.
  • We have all the gifts in us to be successful you just have to stay open to what that is and surround yourself with people who wanna see you grow.
  • Who do you know? Are you resourceful enough that you reach out to people? Who do I know who has these services that I can bring together and highlight to these platforms? You gonna be active and ask for the things that we need.
  • Don’t think that you’ll grow up and be an overnight success from this book, work this book will allow you to do is ways to open doors.
  • When you see the people on the New York’s Best Seller List they’ve been working for 20 years, they didn’t just start there.
  • No one can be you, it doesn’t matter if ten people baked their chocolate chip cookie, the way you bake your chocolate cookie and the way you present will people buy from you. Your who has to be stronger than your why.
