The Brutal Side Of Abused Sisterships

How has your past observation or experience with other women held you back in your career or your business? 

Maybe that hurt came from your mother, your own family, close friends, co-workers, Bff’s, etc… I want to help you release some of the hurt starting today. 

I have spoken to hundreds of thousands of women since I’ve been in business. Whether it was coaching, Masterminds, keynotes, workshops, networking, beauty salon talk, etc…I often hear some women mention that they want the support from other women, they want to share their goals and dreams, they want to celebrate others and be celebrated themselves but the trust in other women is at a minimum. 

I believe true release doesn’t come from keeping your guards up it comes from a deep level of understanding. 

When I look at the biggest challenges of my life they almost all center around the brutal side of abused sisterships. Growing up I recall being judged, smiled and stabbed in the back, teased, betrayed, and so much more by women whom I trusted and cared for. (Not to mention some women I didn’t even know that wanted to make it their assignment to smear my name!)

And I can’t say I was all “sugar and spice and everything nice” either, I know there are women who feel that they’ve been deeply hurt by me. 
Here’s my truth: having true sisterships especially if you are going through any type of transition makes the challenges of life a bit smoother.

Lucinda Cross speaking at GLE Annual event hosted by Yandy Smith-Harris

Egl 11-05 230pm w-24 (1) Egl 11-05 230pm w-32

 

“The Passion + Purpose = Profit event on Friday night was super inspiring. The panelists, who included Tiara Williams, Monique Rodriguez, Tamika Mallory, Lucinda Cross, Tashera Simmons, Bershan Shaw and Precious Avorkliyah-Evans, encouraged everyone to put themselves first and do what makes them happy.

Either you can be Passionately Poor or you can be Passionately Profitable. When you are Passionately Poor it means that you are passionate about something, and people see your hard work, but you’re not getting paid. Passionately Profitable is when you are dedicated to your passion and do whatever it takes to brand yourself, and turn that into profits.

Each and every person’s passion is organic. Your Passion is created from what you LOVE plus what you’re GREAT at. If you don’t know what your passion is, you need to get out and experiment with different things you like to do onestop plumbers. If you try something you thought you liked and it does not work, you get up and try the next thing, and then the next thing and then the next until you have found your passion.” —Recap article featured in EGL written by @Tawana Coleman, Speak Free Communications

Are You Big Enough?

Life is beautiful, painful and surprising – it is so many things. Often we think we are too small for our own life – including the painful parts. But that doesn’t have to be the case. We can be big enough for our own life. ~ELIZABETH MATTIS NAMGYEL

My mother used to say,”Giving up is not an option.”
What do you do when the yellow lines on the roads disappear and the maps stop making sense. In this moment we have a choice: We can focus on the oppression, the distraction, and the fear, or we can use this moment to tap into greater faith.

Where there’s intensity, lies the wisdom.

Get out of the “Waiting Room” in your life

Most people are uncomfortable speaking their truth.

Most people are afraid to step into their power.

Most people get frightened at the thought of  embracing a new mindset. I know I was when it was time for me to come out of my shell and share my most intimate and valuable life lessons.  The moment I embraced my expertise and life experiences my world changed. That is the moment I realized that my story is not about me. My story is about the hundreds of women I am exposed to every month.

Your story needs a stage.  I am not necessary talking about public speaking but your public message to the world that radiates all that you stand for as a women, as a spiritual being.

Let 2013 work hard for you rather than you work hard for it.

Is there is a talent you want to share?

Is there an event you want you have?

Is there a book you would finally like to write?

Your story (your truth), needs a stage, a presence and position in the world.

2013 is the time for being plush, radical and off the radar.  The time to celebrate your story & your voice. Many of my clients tell me they are seeking their purpose in life; they’re waiting for that magical epiphany where their mission becomes clear in terms of speaking/writing.  2013 is the year for main stage, time to get out of the “waiting room” of life & celebrate your voice & your story in a plush, radical & off the radar manner. Here is a picture of my ideal stage for my 2013 celebration?

3 Lessons I Learned From My HORRIFIC Jet Blue Flight

My worst flight everA lot of people are afraid of dying in a plane crash. I was a Jet Blue lover and rider up until this weekend.  I was heading to Florida to keynote at a fabulous conference. I will fill you in on the grade A, top notch treatment in the next blog post. For now let me share my experience with Jet Blue that taught me a valuable lesson on communication.

Due to the rainy and cloudy weather on Friday I expected some turbulence and delays, but what happened in the first 45 minutes of the ride had me in a state of shock. I thought my prayers of going to another level in life was about to be answered in another form and soon I would be meeting my maker.  lol

The plane made several roller coaster moves, but the last three moves felt as if the plane was falling out of the sky. The plane made a huge drop. People were holding on to each other, screaming and yelling “get me off”, “Oh my God”, you name it and they were yelling it.  The stewardess were not calming the crowd nor comforting the people.

All we heard from the pilot during the huge drop was “crew sit down”.

There were no comforting words, for all we knew we were about die. I have been on plane rides from one hour to 12 hours.  I have never been in a situation where the pilot or his crew did not calm the people down and/or inform us that we were experiencing heavy turbulence or flying through some air pockets.

I wanted to hear from the pilot during or afterwards.

I wanted to know that everything will be okay.

I wanted to know that this was heavy turbulence and would last for another??? minutes.

The absence of hearing from the pilot put everyone in a state of shock, including myself.  My legs were shaking, my heart felt like it was about to pop out of my chest, and my hands were hurting from holding on to my seat with all my might to avoid bumping my head.

So here are three lessons I learned from my horrific Jet Blue flight:

  1. Always communicate, give people a heads up on what to expect
  2. Be sensitive to others needs
  3. Never eat before you take a Jet Blue flight

 

Please feel free to share your horrific flight story.
