I believe in the power of being in rooms with people who think at a higher level than you do, because it causes you to rethink your current thoughts and your current reality, then you can have the possibility to change some of those thoughts and start growing.

And so, I did a thing y’all! I recently joined the biggest mastermind that I have ever been a part of.

In this mastermind, I am literally the lowest earner. Everyone else in the room is at $1M+. And while it officially starts in January, we have already had a couple of meetings and there is something that I realized that I want to share with you.

I notice that there’s no secret to success. Success is actually a skill. And what these high earners are doing is something I’m calling speed of implementation. Meaning, they get coached, immediately implement it and come back to the next meeting with the results they experienced.

This is one of the main differences I see for us as high-achieving women of color, we don’t take immediate action. So let’s talk about some of the reasons why I think speed of implementation is a thing for us.

Episode 99 – Sheroism vs Toxic Positivity

With every life experience,  your relationships, your achievements, and your failures are all open to interpretation. The most important decision you’ll make about every life experience is the meaning you assign to it. And that meaning will either hold you back or push you forward.

Episode 98 – Visibility Capacity

Visibility capacity is our ability to allow our full selves to be seen in our life and work.

When it’s out of alignment, it shows up as feeling stuck, uncomfortable, and lacking discipline and willpower. But when our visibility capacity is in full bloom, we stop sabotaging opportunities that shine a light on our brilliance and intentionally seek out and attract visibility opportunities that celebrate our true selves.
