What REALLY $cares Us About $uccess!

What scares us most about financial success is not that we may fall short, but that we may actually take flight and discover that we are, indeed, “powerful beyond measure.”  For many of us, that’s the very thing we’re trying to avoid.

When we claim our power, we raise the stakes. Power insists that we become responsible adults—the primary authority in our life— autonomous and accountable, too big to ignore. That’s precisely what’s so scary!

A woman afraid of her power is like an eagle afraid of its wings. We were born with power. It’s who we are, why we’re here, how we create our lives.

I am reminded of a story of a Zen monk who, when asked the secret of Buddha’s smile, replied, “It can only be that he smiles at himself for searching all those years for what he already possesses.” 

We, too, may smile at ourselves when we finally figure it out. Financial success is really about reclaiming our power—power that lies dormant within—by realizing our potential, expressing our passion, owning our value, and being well compensated.

    I finally figured out, in the last month specifically, that no one company is going to create, then employ me to do exactly what I want to do. I must create that company! I have been resisting being my own boss and running a company when I don’t have insight into this process, but if I do exactly what I want to do, I will be the only one I need to employ, and as my 21 year old recently reminded me, “and mom, you’re already managing yourself”. Brilliant!

    So, off I go to create exactly what I want so I can do exactly what lights me up, and then I can have exactly the life I’ve been wanting (and just about having ), all these years. The time is now! I’ll be 50 this year and this realization came after attending Mama Gena’s mastery program (session 1). So happy I know it now and so regret not doing it sooner, but at least I can and will DO IT NOW!

    With this and my work on the financial side with you Barbara, and your books, I am building all of the independence I have wanted and am so excited about!

    Julie, I’m giving you a standing ovation!!! You’re going for it!!! And just before you turn 50 is the perfect time! You don’t need to hire anyone…but be sure you have friends, family, colleagues you can consult with who can offer business advice. I know that was important to me when I began…it still is! Keep me posted…I wish you tremendous success.
