Here is what will we do in your session:
Talk about your ideas and what is holding you back.
I’m adding something fun and new - I will facilitate a Dream Speed Date for you. No, it’s not a date with Prince Charming. You speed date something you want in your life that is not there now. This takes about 15 minutes and we’ll talk about it briefly. I will send you your results afterward, too.
If it seems like a mutual fit, I will introduce the opportunity to join a Mirror Your Brilliance Circle, our 6 month accountability and support experience for women that starts Feb. 1. There is no obligation, and quite honestly it is not for everywoman, so this part of the session is optional.
The goal of the session is for you to spend 45 minutes or so looking above the daily fray and seeing which dream is waving at you.
I don't know about you but my end of 2017 plan went way off track.
My daughter Jessie, who returned to university in London this past fall, was sitting in her room in her apartment a few weeks ago. Her roommates were not home.
An intruder broke in by kicking in the front door.
Jessie, hearing the noise but not knowing what it was, went into the hallway. She came face to face with him. He turned and fled.
I'm sure you know that it goes without saying how grateful we are that this man, who thought no one was home, was only looking for valuables to steal and nothing else.
In mid-November, after a series of messenger chats with Jess, it became apparent that she needed some support for the holidays to get past some homesickness and the residual fear and shock from the incident. I happily cashed in some airline miles I had earmarked for Thailand this year to book a last minute ticket to London.
I do not want the outcome of a momentary encounter with this random thief to be that he ends up making off with my daughter’s sense of confidence and bravery.
The good news is that we had a great shared experience, as you'll see below. It was good practice for us both in turning a difficult experience into valuable learning.
Having said that, I am starting January feeling a bit behind, the opposite of my original plan for the end of 2017.
How about you?
Are you feeling fatigued from the holidays and not all that excited by the whole New Years resolution thing?
Are you struggling with having a vision of the outcome you want but not being able to get there?
My experience in late December simply convinced me more than ever of this essential point: we are mirrors for each other.
Through many conversations with Jess, I realized I was saying what I needed to hear, too. I arrived in London pretty tapped out from 6 weeks of long days pushing out some year-end goals. As we talked about how to stay strong and manage fear, I saw that I needed to keep walking my talk, too, you know? I did a lot of listening as well, and she gave me some good advice. These millennials are smart cookies.
On top of that, I had a very productive business meeting in London with a successful female entrepreneur who has been a mentor for about a year. We agreed on some specific future follow up. Jess got to meet her as well.
The common thread here is this - through quality conversations with different women, we mirrored back to each other a way past current obstacles to get back on track.
Through January 19 I'm offering complimentary "Mirror Your Brilliance" sessions with select women to explore a unique process, fine tuned for women in midlife, to achieve your next level goals in 6 months.
(This is a conversation about your specific goals, not a presentation, by the way.)
If you have friends who are leading in their lives and might benefit from this kind of support, please feel free to forward this to them as well.
Oh, and one last thing - you might be wondering, "Why is Kala the person to be bringing this up with me, at this time?"
There are many advisors out there to help you reach your goals - some are accomplished motivational speakers or researchers. I follow a few of them, in fact!
I can authentically say a big difference between myself and most of them is I accept significant risk and take radical action. I don't only report findings or repackage what works for others.
Two years ago I left a 26 year marriage that had run its course, traveled and worked online for 18 months, and am now re-creating a life (from a home base in Mexico City) that is even better than I could had imagined for myself. All of my life metrics are a 10+, I'm in better shape and happier than I've ever been; my relationships are whole and satisfying.
Having said that, it was not easy. Not at all, and every day brings new challenges and gifts.
Helping midlife women lead the change in their lives, build resiliency and see results is the purpose of YinCaravana, the online hub for women leading the change in their lives. These Mirror Your Brilliance sessions are just the start!
I look forward to hearing from you!
All my best Kala
PS. You are a woman who is used to leading in your life - I get that. The trick is to figure out how to do even more of that without so much effort and exhaustion. As someone with big dreams AND a diagnosed hypo-thyroid condition, I had to develop some strategies for doing more with less effort. I've got some tips to share around that, too.
