Every person should have their own song!

Creating a song that embodies who you are is life-giving.  What you say to yourself is so powerful you that you deserve your own song. One of the best investments I made was in creating and producing my song. It is my ring tone, it pumps me up in the morning and people love listening to it.

Here is how I use my song:

  1. As my ring tone. Yes it shouts to me who I am
  2. As my introduction music when I speak.  Pumps and me and others up. I also use it in my close. No copyright issues it is all mine.
  3. Share it with friends and fans who need to be pumped. Love inspiring people.

The first is my full song Pegine Power.

 

 

The second is the second stanza for you to sing to you. Pegine Power Song “It’s My Power” for You to Sing To YOU

Your Super Power Always Shows Up – Believe In You

From the moment you wake up you decide who you are and what you believe about yourself.  You live with that choice on a daily basis.  The way you feel about yourself is an indicator to you if those beliefs or thoughts are true or not. The way you feel when you are thinking those thoughts tell you if you are on the right course or not.

Feeling bad, wanting to cover your head, hiding or worrying about your future are all indicators that your thoughts are not in your highest best interest, that they are not what your inner self, your inner superpower thinks of you.

Inner Child or Inner Super Power

I hold a Masters in Social Work (MSW). I was trained about the concepts of inner child work and learned this inner child has to be cared for, nurtured, held tight and protected by you.  Therapists and doctors write about the inner child and how the traumas and hurts experienced by us as children created beliefs that hold us back from becoming mature adults.

Living Powerfully with Joy

Living with joy is a feeling that is hard to express, it is bliss, that wonderful feeling that everything just right. It is liberating and freeing and it is dependent on one question “What makes me happy?”  What makes you happy?

Be opitimistic. Joyous living comes from appreciating what you have, who you are and what you are creating for your highest, best self.

What really makes you happy?

  • I know people who love their work. They love it so much, we as onlookers say they are working too hard, but for them…they are in bliss.
  • I know people who adore their hobbies and feel a rush when they spend time on them. It fills a part of their soul that is magical.
  • I know people who can loll the day away on a beach and feel such serenity and joy, it is amazing.

Secret Key to Asking

2. Know who to ask

It all sounds so simple.  I know it isn’t.

The Gift of Knowing

I have had a long time of knowing. A long time of knowing but not necessarily believing this was my destiny. For a long time, I kept asking for my mission and my purpose. While I had many signals that directed me, I still was not sure.

My journey has been as glorious as a winding stream traveling long distances, curving, going back, and having many switchbacks. At times my stream was a rapid river of abundance and experiences, at other times it was a little trickle, still moving but by droplets. I know I was impatient, wondering and often not appreciating where I was and how I got there.

What I’ve learned is the stream will always be flowing until the day I die, only then, maybe I will have reached my destiny.

Be A Diamond Cutter

A foible is a minor weakness or eccentricity in someone’s character. Synonyms include words such as weakness, failing, shortcomings, flaws, imperfections, blemish, fault or limitations.

Humans tend to look for imperfections, comparing themselves to perfection which doesn’t exist. They search for what is wrong rather than search for what is right.

I love reading about diamonds and their value. I apply what I learn to myself and the people I work with. I want to use my knowledge to help people respect, honor and showcase their value.

Recently I read about the flaws, imperfections, and blemishes of diamonds.

“Diamonds are formed deep within the earth, under extreme heat and pressure; virtually all diamonds contain “birthmarks”, small imperfections inside the diamond (called inclusions), or on its surface (called blemishes). Clarity refers to the degree to which these imperfections are present. Diamond cutters make every effort to cut a stone so that inclusions are not visible through the table of the finished diamond.”

I love how Diamond cutters call imperfections inclusions. Every diamond has an inclusion. You are a diamond, as valuable, unique, inclusive and brilliant.

Your Opinion Matters

Speak up, sit up because of your opinion matters.

There are legions of us women. Women who have an opinion and aren’t afraid to speak up.  From the time we were little we were heard.

These are women who see solutions and opportunities and point them out to others. As girls we were were coached to be quiet, punished and sent to detention, and often told sit down and shut up.

I had the good fortune of watching Dr. Marcia Reynold’s Tedex talk about Precocious women.   Leadership and talent development leaders will learn how to retain and promote women with opinions.

Precocious children [advanced for one’s age, forwardmaturegiftedtalentedcleverintelligentquick, smart] become precocious adults. 

When a precocious woman leads. Things get done.

Nurture Your Highest Perspective of Self

Nurture your highest perspective of self. Focus all your energy on your best self. Keep mindful of your magnificence and influence.  It isn’t easy in the world of social media and public critics. It is challenging when your biggest critic is yourself.

I wish there were blinders I could give you that would prevent you from comparing you to you (your reality now with your powerful, amazing now) and you to others.

I would rather you look at you from a higher perspective filled with the adoration, appreciation and expectation.Who you already are and who you strive to be and that you are living the story you want to live.

During my Influence coaching practice, I encounter brilliant leaders sometimes struggling with the story they tell themselves over and over and getting frustrated because they really want to live another story, what they perceive is their future story.

We work on shifting their current perception of self to their highest perspective of self. There are a lot of processes and techniques to get there.

These are five recommendations all of my leaders hear from me.
