What happens when you don’t have life under control?

“To let your light shine in the world, you have to find out who you were meant to be. Discovering your life’s purpose is a growth process that reveals your true self and gives hope to your dreams. It is a predictable pattern of growth to find the jewel of hope and then lose it, creating the need to find it again.” – Lindsay Gibson
Life has a funny way of shifting your program without permission. To make changes without asking and to place you in a position to make life altering decisions without notice.
I am presently going through that change now. I ask myself could this chaos and confusion be a gift?
What happens when you don’t have life under control?
Here’s what I am trying to focus on – the GIFT- even in this feeling of cursed chaos. My goal is to focus on seeing this pain as an opportunity to shed, explore and create something new in my life. A new prayer routine, a new perspective, a new, new. Yes a new, NEW.
Life takes over to upend us, see that as a gift. Look for the meaning, the purpose in any upsets, uncontrolled and unexpected set backs in your life.  It is in that moment that the gift will appear, the gift of who you are becoming.
It is time for you to be who you were meant to be, by any means necessary!

How to find comfort in the uncomfortable zone

Welcome to a new day and a new opportunity to do better and be better.

 

Today is a great day to step out to be brave and bold.  I know you hear this all the time, “get out of your comfort zone”. What does this really mean?  When I first heard this saying I said to myself, “I am not in my comfort zone, I am quite uncomfortable with how my life is operating”. I was broke, single mom with lots of expenses and not enough money or time. All I had was potential. I was used to luxury cars, having nice things and the ability to do what I want, when I wanted with my kids. So stepping out of my comfort zone was a statement that just pissed me off every time the cashier would yell, “your card declined Miss”, or the ATM machine would hand me an insufficient funds receipt instead of the cash I requested.

Today is a new day. Today is a new year and today marks a fresh start for me to do better and to be better.  My journey from broke as a joke to feeling slap happy as my grandfather would say, required me to be more than uncomfortable. It required me to be comfortable in the uncomfortable, if that makes any sense to you.

My life changed in 2006 when I turned away from the predictable, cliché, and reliable ways of being. I had to evaluate what was working in my life and what was hindering me from excelling.

I needed a fresh start. I needed to get my groove back. The answers to these questions changed my dry season of broke to a season being bold and brave enough to embrace uncomfortable opportunities.

Corporate Mom Drop Out or Corporate America: Are you faithful to your vision?

I started out as most mom entrepreneurs, frustrated with my job, wanting to pursue my dreams, make more money, and do what I wanted to do, when I wanted to do it, and however I wanted to do it.  I rebelled and left Mr. Corporate America to see if I could make it without him.  It has been over 7 years now and I have not returned.  I now have the freedom and flexibility I craved. On the business front, I deliver inspiring keynotes, coach women business owners and mompreneurs. On the home front, I am able to enjoy my family  and play with my little 9mth old at the mommy and me events during the week.

I don’t know about you, but the relationship I had with Mr. C (Corporate America) was abusive.

He kept me from my children, kept me from my friends and family, and most of all kept me from being me. Mr. C made it clear that he wanted 50years of my life.  He never really acknowledged my talents and he personally did not care.  He told me I could only be sick a few times a year, I could eat once a day when he said so. He told me what to wear, how to talk and when to talk. He gave me money every two weeks, just enough to survive and told me that I had to show up rain, sleet, hail or snow. I will never forget the day he told me that I could only take 14 days out of the year, and had the nerve to call it a vacation…

I have been tempted to cheat on my vision when times were rough, when I suddenly became a single parent with 2 small children, when my lights were turned off, when my computer crashed while working on a clients 30 page business plan, when my car was towed for tickets, not once, not twice but three times for over $1000 each time, only because the signs in the city were hard to read, when all I wanted to do was attend a networking event for free. In the midst of it all, and despite of it all, I had to believe that I was going through a process of preparation.

When Mr. C came knocking at my door, with flowers and candy, with new positions and promotions, I had to stand firm on my decision and make this thing called VISION work.  I needed to hang around visionaries, listen to visionaries, and eat with visionaries who were not my peers, but at a level that I wanted to get to.

You will be tried, tested and tempted when it comes to your Vision.  When the going get rough, when the roads get rocky. Are you willing to wipe off the dust, dry your eyes and keep on keeping on?

Be committed and intrinsically motivated.  Write your vision down and start with the end in mind.  What does the big picture look like? Write the vision, cut and paste the vision, record the vision, do whatever legally, morally and ethically that you need to do so that the provision can show up. What one person can do, anyone can do if the desire and passion is there. I believe in you and in the beauty of your dreams.  When you get sick and tired of being sick and tired, you will take action.  I trust that when you do, you will join me, Lucinda Cross…. together we will create a business beyond your wildest dreams!
