Do You Have the Power?

Screen Shot 2014-03-11 at 7.36.23 AM

Here’s a riddle: What do Finance, Yoga, and Dating have in common? Well, let’s consider who’s got the most POWER.

1) On the Trading Floor, who’s got it? The junior associate swinging the baseball bat and talking loudly to his friends in the next cubicle? OR the woman in the corner office, who doesn’t have to raise her voice. Just hearing her Manolo’s clank down the hall is enough to make everyone sit up straiter in their chair.

2) In the Yoga Studio, who’s got it? The dude who’s breathing heavily and loudly, who jumps and lands on his mat with a thump and a grunt? OR the lithe dancer who seemingly moves in slow motion so that every jump lands without a single sound?

3) In the Bar, who’s got it? The woman who enters the room with a splash, says hello to everyone and immediately kisses the bartender on each cheek? OR is it the woman who steps into the bar, pauses silently to survey the scene allowing each and every man and woman to see her, and fills the room with her presence without saying a thing?

OK–did you figure out? What do Finance, Yoga, and Dating have in common?

Answer: The person with the most quiet confidence has the power!

OK, so how do you get that confidence? Well, it’s a practice like anything else. But keep in mind, you don’t have to do a whole song and dance to convince people that you’re powerful. Just believe it. And everyone around you will too.

Watch it here:

The Myth of the “Power Couple”

Screen Shot 2013-12-14 at 8.05.39 AM

Ever wondered what it would be like to be in a “Power Couple”? You know, Kim and Kanye, Beyonce and Jay-Z, Miley and…oops, that didn’t quite work out. Well, you know what I mean.

Imagine it–a more accomplished man would sweep you off your feet, mentor you, bring you to higher levels, and together you’d “wow” the circle you both run in. You’d become a power couple!

Seems like a pretty great dream, huh? Well, it’s a myth. Here’s the hard truth–no one, I mean NO ONE is going to elevate you to higher levels of success, status and fame. Not a mentor, not a lover, and definitely not your other half. Only YOU can do that.

But here’s the good news: a man “on your level” is enough. Because YOU are enough. You’re MORE than enough! And anyone who mirrors that has got to be as awesome as you are.

In this week’s episode of BDG.TV, I share a personal example of the myth of the power couple. You might be surprised at how much this resonates with you–I mean, we’re all ambitious women, right?

Have you ever dreamed of being in a power couple? Are you in one right now? What are you thoughts on this? As always, the most interesting conversations happen in the comments section, so come on over and speak your truth!

Till I see you below in the comments section, take good care of your sweet heart!
