I'm the person who talks about magic, power, and genius, I can speak to a crowd of five thousand but when you put me in a room to network with 50 people, I become socially shy.
It's an intimacy issue, in-too-me-see. I avoid networking.
I'm attending the World Domination Summit with Chris Guillebeau in a few weeks. I felt myself getting anxious about a month ago. I even thought about cancelling my trip.
I decided to "walk my talk." I began to take action.
I began reaching out. I discovered a private group on Facebook and began communicating with other people that are going including Kerrie Blazek of In Her Element, Michelle DeSpain of The Diary of a Late Bloomer, and Laurie Ann Silberman, who is relaunching her blog soon.
I chose these three women because they all live in the Phoenix area and I need off line friends! It can be that easy!
I'm going to get some extra business cards printed this afternoon. I signed up for the individual workshops I will be attending.
By taking action I changed my fear and anxiety to anticipation and excitement.
What do you need? What are you willing to do?
10 tips to be bold and discover your magic, power, and genius!
Own your brilliance. You have a profound greatness. Breathe it in. Share it with others. Come out of hiding. Decide to shine. This is your time. Run with it.
Unset your mind and heart. Set your intention and choose to let go of the outcome. Be open to options. Your results may be even better than you expected.
Enjoy the ride.
You don’t have to make life difficult. Savor the adventure. Go new places. Introduce yourself to people. Learn something awesome. Don’t be the same person you were yesterday, today.
Look with fresh eyes.
My three year old grandson, Henri, asked my daughter today, “Why is there road construction?” She replied, “Workers fix the holes in the road so that our car tires won't go flat. (Michigan roads)
Think about your blueberries. If you squash one, it won’t roll. Flat tires don’t roll. We need our tires to roll in order for our car to run.” The wonder of a child and learning something new is contagious. Borrow that energy!
Dwell in possibility.
When we live in fear, we dwell more on what won’t or can’t work. When we live in possibility we wonder what will work and discover how it can. Begin to spend more time in what’s possible and less time in doubt. Dream big!
Let life be good.
You determine how your day will go. When you stay out of your own way, life is great. If you fear success, you stop your progress and create obstacles. Do what is before you. Work on your three top tasks. Focus and allow life to be grand!
Acknowledge the wonder and beauty.
Look at your life and count your blessings. It’s easy to get caught up in what others have and what others are doing. Meanwhile, you discount your own blessings as meaningless and unimportant.
Judge nothing that occurs.
We don’t know what anything is for. You can’t see the big picture. We don’t know why someone wins against all odds. We don’t know why some things go terribly wrong. The only meaning something has is what we give it. Show up with less judgment, have fun, and do your best.
See your life experience with hope, trust and optimism. Decide to feel good in every moment. Release negative energy, negative situations, and negative people. Stay in the moment, lighten up and choose joy.
Give of yourself today.
Energy shared is energy expanded. Help someone get ahead. Go the extra mile. A slight positive change can shift someone’s life in a different direction. You have the power to improve someone’s life with love. Share it wholeheartedly.
What if… What if everything turns out great? Most things aren’t as serious as you make them out to be. You are surrounded by possibility. Keep your head high and your eyes open. Observe. Take action. Step into an amazing future!
