“Women are the greatest untapped natural resource on the planet.”
For years I believed I needed to be something and someone other than me in order to succeed.
I didn’t think me as ME could succeed.
I mean, why would I?
Everything I was consuming was telling me directly or indirectly that I had to be different than me to “win”.
The people I saw modeling success were doing so from a masculine energy — and not always a healthy one.
They were pushing + striving, they were aggressively making things happen, and they were working hard.
And it was working. For THEM.
So I copied it. I modeled what I saw working for other people and when it didn’t work for me, I assumed it was because there was something wrong with me + that I needed to try harder, be better, and overall just be less of who I was.
So assuming I was the problem, I kept pushing me down + I kept repeating the story that as soon as I could get rid of everything that was “wrong with me”, I would be able to be successful.
It never occured to me that IT wasn’t going to work for ME.
Their strategies for success were totally misaligned with my true self.
They weren’t crafted to help me access + create from my *authentic* power. In fact, in order to succeed as them, I was suppressing my power.
I was operating under the belief that my power was a threat, not an asset.
Just because they are threatened by it, does not mean your power is a threat.
I didn’t see anything else being modeled so I didn’t know there was a way for me to succeed fully sourced from feminine POWER.
Recently, the feminine (in all humans) is waking up and feeling the tension between who they are, what they’re doing in the world, and how they’re going about doing it.
And as I began to recognize this in myself, I thought I had to choose.
I thought it was either:
#1 — Give up on what I want to do in the world
#2 — Keep striving + achieving in the way I’d been doing
That’s a lie. It’s not either or. It’s not binary. It’s not this or that.
Both is possible.
There is a way to succeed without losing yourself. Without suppressing everything that you are.
How? I am in practice. I am in creation. I am in exploration.
If you want to discuss or have feelings, thoughts, ideas you’d like to share, I want to hear them.
It’s time we tap back into the feminine – our planet’s greatest natural resource.
