Owning your brilliance is not only a matter of confidence. It’s also a matter of being prepared. You need to be ready and equipped to own the opportunities that come your way, whether it’s in your personal life or in your professional one. Whether you’re planning on taking advantage of these opportunities right away or saving them for later on, we can help you get there no matter where you are right now in your journey towards owning all that makes you brilliant!
Realize that you are enough.
To own your brilliance, you have to realize you are enough. You don’t need to change or improve yourself in any way. You don’t need to be anything other than you, and even the most successful women will tell you they still feel like they’re not enough sometimes. The truth is what it is: You are already enough. What makes us feel like we’re not enough?
The reason why we feel like we’re not good enough is because society tells us this! Almost everything in our lives today has been created to encourage “more” and “lavish”–from material items to body shape. There’s a lot of inherent sexism ingrained into how we see ourselves, our bodies, and each other as women (and people). But if we recognize this fact and create new stories around it every day by believing that every person has amazing potential regardless of gender identity or race, then eventually, those old patterns will fade away into nothingness because they no longer serve us!
Quiet the inner critic. Acknowledge it and move on.
The inner critic is a bit of a hornet’s nest, but it’s one you can learn to accept and even embrace. The inner critic can be especially harsh in women because we’ve been conditioned to think that there are only two kinds of women: the ones who are quiet, gentle, and self-deprecating, and the ones who are loud, confident, and unapologetic. But both archetypes don’t work for everyone—there are many ways to be a woman! For example, You may not want to be loud at all times; you might feel more comfortable being quiet (or somewhere between). In this case, accepting your quietness is an act of radical self-acceptance.
Letting go of your inner critic will help you own your brilliance by giving yourself permission to be exactly who you are right now—without judgment or comparison. You aren’t perfect yet either; I’m not perfect! But we will get there together when we stop comparing ourselves to perfection or some other standard that isn’t real life.
Ground yourself in your feminine power.
When we think of feminine power, we usually imagine women who are confident, assertive, and independent. We may also picture women who speak their minds and take charge in the workplace. However, this isn’t necessarily what I mean when using the term “feminine” or “feminine power.”
For me, feminine means something more along the lines of softness, empathy, and compassion—qualities that are often considered “weak” but that I believe hold a woman’s true strength. Feminine energy flows through all of us—whether male or female—and can be used to create balance within ourselves and between us as humans on this planet.
The first step toward connecting with your own personal sense of femininity is simply being open to seeing yourself differently than you ever have before: As someone who is capable of experiencing emotions deeply; as someone who has access to tremendous potential for healing others; as someone who can use her words wisely and tactfully without compromising her values; as someone whose very presence invites others into their full potentials for kindness and generosity.
Stand in your truth.
When it comes to your brilliance, there’s no need to pretend. You are enough. You are unique, beautiful, and brilliant in your own way. It’s time you start treating yourself as such.
Start by asking yourself these questions: What makes me feel good? What do I love doing? When am I happiest? How can I make this a regular part of my life? Notice how much easier it is to answer these questions when they’re phrased in terms of “you” rather than “I.” This shift in perspective will allow you to acknowledge what truly gives value and meaning to your life — not just what society says is valuable or meaningful (e.g., having the perfect job).
Trust your intuition.
Trust your intuition. It will guide you to the right decisions and help you make better choices. Learn to tune in to your gut, listen to your inner voice, and follow your instincts. Trust that there are answers inside of you that only need to be discovered if you trust yourself enough to seek them out. Your intuition is based on years of life experience and wisdom from both within and outside of yourself—it’s been with you since birth! It’s time for women everywhere to learn how valuable this tool really is so they can use it for all its worth in order to live authentically; authentically as themselves really means being able to trust their own wisdom about life in general rather than trusting other people’s opinions about what should or shouldn’t happen next on their journey through existence.
Tune into what lights you up from the inside out.
What lights you up from the inside out?
What are you passionate about?
What do you love to do?
What do you love to learn about?
What do you love to talk about?
Find your flow and follow it!
Your flow is the natural way you are meant to be. It’s how you operate at your best, doing what feels right and being in touch with who you really are. Flow is different for everyone, but it tends to feel effortless and good when you’re there.
When we’re in our flow, we experience a sense of ease that comes from knowing that we’re doing what we were put here on earth to do—we don’t have to worry about the big picture because it’s already taken care of! In fact, if we stop worrying about it at all (and trust), everything unfolds exactly as it should without us having any control over the outcome; this gives us permission not only to relax but also to take responsibility for our lives (and allow others access). This can be scary at first as it challenges some traditional beliefs about ourselves, but after a while, realizing that no one knows better than ourselves becomes liberating!
The tricky part occurs when trying to find this place where nothing needs to be done except simply being present with yourself (and sometimes others) while trusting everything will work out just fine regardless if or not certain things happen — which they always do!
Embrace change & growth with grace.
Change is natural, and growth is a natural part of change. Change is a good thing because it allows us to see things in new ways. It enables us to learn, grow and evolve in our personalities and our lives! Growth means that we are moving forward with our lives, which can be challenging but also rewarding. The more we change for the better in our lives means that we’re living authentically–we’re being true to who we really are at heart.
If you embrace this idea, then you’ll be able to find comfort in being yourself instead of trying so hard (and failing) at being someone else’s “ideal” woman.
Get in your body and learn to listen.
As a woman, you have an incredible opportunity to learn how to listen. Your body has an innate intelligence that can guide and support you in making right decisions for your life.
It’s time to get in your body and start listening! Here are some tips for getting started:
- Take some time every day for self-care. Whether it’s yoga or meditation or walking outside, practice taking care of yourself first thing each day – before any other commitments come into play. This will help clear the way so that you can hear what your heart is telling you instead of being distracted by everything else going on around you.
- Practice mindfulness during the day – try short 5-minute meditations throughout the day (in between meetings at work or waiting at a stoplight), long 10-15 minute meditations before bed, etc., until it becomes second nature to pause regularly and check in with yourself about how things feel inside. Once this happens consistently enough without effort, then our nervous system will begin sending more signals directly into our consciousness; this is when we really begin hearing ourselves clearly!
Master your emotions.
It’s time to start owning your emotions.
Emotions are a part of who we are, and you don’t need to feel ashamed for feeling them. Even though our culture tends to make us feel like emotions are a sign of weakness or being crazy, they’re actually just part of what makes us human. They don’t make you less than anyone else—they just mean that you’re alive!
We’re all angry sometimes. We’re all sad sometimes. We all get jealous or scared sometimes, and that’s okay! Many women feel like they have to hide their emotions because society tells them it’s bad to be emotional. They feel like their feelings are something that needs apologizing for—but guess what? Emotions aren’t something you should apologize for.
Keep it simple, sweetheart! (Give yourself some room to breathe)
Simplify your life.
Simplify your wardrobe.
Simplify your eating habits.
Simplify your social media (Twitter, Facebook, Instagram) and time spent on it.
Simplifying your work—less multitasking and more focus on the task at hand, with fewer meetings and emails in between tasks, is a great way to get stuff done!
Have fun with it! (The journey is the destination)
Having fun is crucial to the process. Remember that the journey is just as important as the destination. Many people get so caught up in trying to achieve their goals that they forget what makes them happy and excited about life.
MotivatHER Inc. will help you find ways to have fun along your journey towards your goals. If you can’t always be successful, at least try to ensure that your journey doesn’t become boring!
A Steady journey of self-discovery and self-love
Owning your brilliance isn’t a put-a-cape-over-one-arm-and-a-rocket ship-on your -back kind of thing. It’s more like a steady journey of self-discovery and self-love as you learn to trust yourself and embrace all facets of yourself as a woman.
Owning Your Brilliance Is About:
- Self Love – Loving yourself enough to take care of yourself, stand up for yourself and speak up when needed. It’s about realizing that you deserve the best in life, not just because it makes sense but because it feels right for YOU! You don’t have to settle for less than what feeds your soul or causes pain/suffering because “that’s just how things are supposed to be” or “I have no choice.” We all have choices!!! We can choose our destiny.
- Trusting Yourself – The only person who can make things happen is YOU! No one else has your best interests at heart like YOU do, so don’t let others tell you otherwise or try convincing themselves otherwise!
