When I rebranded my business to Start With You back in 2015, it was after a lot of exploring and soul-searching, primarily about why I do what I do and what it’s really about.
(I can highly recommend Simon Sinek’s book “Start With Why” and his online resources to help with this process, by the way. Oh, and it wasn’t until the following day after I’d settled on ‘Start With You’ that I realised it was only one word off his book name. Hilarious.)
Anyway, from my point of view, Start With You is primarily about the fact that we can’t control everything around us, but we can take charge of ourselves. We can have what I call sovereignty: meaning dominion over ourselves – over our emotional, mental, physical and spiritual self.
My personal mission is to help as many people as possible to experience and live with sovereignty.
For people to not be at the mercy of their emotional reactions and external circumstances, but to be able to choose their state of mind, their energetic frequency, and in turn, be an empowered force of good in the world – for that is what I find most people ultimately want to be and do.
Our capacity as humans to make conscious choices and not simply react is what distinguishes us from a single-celled amoeba!
Opportunities to strengthen our sovereignty…
Right now, the circumstances of the pandemic, lockdown and post-lockdown and so on are providing many stressors, pressures and challenges – take that as code for giving us many opportunities to strengthen our sovereignty!
These stressors and challenges raise different things within each one of us – whether it is certain fears or amplifying our stress etc. Whilst that can be hard and not very fun, they do give us a chance to work with those emotional responses and strengthen ourselves.
So, all of that is to say, I have felt very much called to offer a programme in the coming months to help my clients and subscriber community to up-level at this time and build new levels of resilience and self-mastery.
You can find out all about the programme here. I would love you to join me on this three-month journey to strengthen yourself on all levels.
Wherever you are within yourself right now and whatever the challenges in front of you, you will most certainly be in a different place within yourself by the end of the programme. 🙂
