Women, Success and Leading from the Feminine

Not too long ago, a friend reached out to our community and asked “Who are the women out there who are really successful, and leading from the feminine”? I loved that question. Here was my answer. Loved this post and not surprisingly very relevant for me in this moment (and by moment I mean starting 3 weeks ago). I’m going through a full reorg (Network Care term) and fully reviewing who I am at my core, what my passion and purpose is, how my choices have gotten me to where I am today and how I can change it all. I’ve completely moved through life often making decisions based out of fear and then to pull me through, lead from my masculine. This hasn’t been working for me. You gotta’ do what you gotta do. Party through the pain, Power through it. It is what it is. These aren’t even the good ones. And while we all are Tony Robbins fans, and a lot of his work comes from Soul, it is still often packaged and manufactured from the masculine. While I’m with you on there being a lot of Feminine Empowerment leadership out there, some of it leaves a bad taste in my mouth as well. I also wanted to note, it’s not just Manhattan where this is a problem — it’s a national epidemic, maybe even global, where the core may be rooted in Metropolitan areas where high paying careers are in the most demand. It could be a little softer outside of NYC, but it’s how we all have been taught is the path to success....

What is Wellness?

Last month in conversation with a friend who works for one of Fast Company’s top 10 companies to work for, the topic of Wellness was at hand. Maybe because I am obsessed with the topic — but apparently so are her clients. In a world that is becoming more aware of our lack of peace, love and happiness, she mentioned that almost every account is wanting “to jump on this Wellness bandwagon.”  Companies that are wanting to design better products and better business models are recognizing the consumers interest in the Wellness factor.  How can they incorporate it and package it? How can they convey to their audience that they have their wellbeing in mind? My first question to her was, “What do they think Wellness means?” When first hearing the word, Wellness is usually lumped into, taking your vitamins, getting exercise and eating healthy. While that is generally the case, it also means so much more. As someone who has done a lot of work on themselves, I think Wellness can reach much deeper levels. Being well to me means, being self-aware, in touch with your truth — mindful of your behaviors and habits and generally being a loving, caring, compassionate person.  Those character traits are left when all the other BS our ego creates no longer rule us. Peace of mind, general contentment, walking through life with grace and ease reside when we become masters to our ego and no longer it’s slave. The 4 elements, Fire, Air, Water and Earth resonate so deeply with the foundation of everything that exists, it seems only natural to use...
