"I'm not worried about what I want; I just want to make sure that everyone else has what they want."

It's an unspoken chorus of women who have been raised to believe that being "selfless" is their greatest gift torepparttar world.

Underneath it lurks a great fear.

"If my family knew how I really feel or if I insisted on what I want, they would stop loving me!"

As women, many of us were taught that being valued by others means leaving ourselves behind. We quickly learn to act in ways that are inconsistent with our own beliefs and feelings in order to avoid displeasing people whom we love and need. What a paradox! For in order to be truly valued by another, we must present an authentic self, not a façade designed to avoid rejection. Authenticity isrepparttar 137117 sine qua non of true connection with others, and yet it is our fear of disconnection that drives us to hide our real thoughts and feelings, i.e. to reject ourselves. What a joy to suddenly understand that fully becomingrepparttar 137118 person you are meant to be is actuallyrepparttar 137119 very best way to serve others!

The fact is, by fully defining and appreciating ourselves, we naturally become empowered to release our unique gifts and dreams into our work and our relationships, and to achieve joy and flow in our lives. The people we care about are best served when we are acting from wholeness, not by our “playing a part” in an attempt to please them. Only when we allow our individual sparks to glow isrepparttar 137120 Universe at its brightest.

I know that sounds odd, but it’s true. You can consciously define, direct and intensify your motivation to achieve any goal.

Motivation is key to success. After all, motivation drives action. And action isrepparttar 137074 only thing that will move your business forward. All your plans, hopes, dreams and intentions are useless without action.

The process of creating motivation is actually very simple. There are two parts. First you must write out your goal as clearly and simply as you can. Specify when you’ll have it and what you’re going to do for it.
