One of the cruellest things that I get to see as part of my job is the manifestation of the product or products that I dreamed up and created and feared out how to do like. So many of you as a business owner, you get these ideas in your head and it is incredible to get to watch them come to fruition and I started dreaming about one of our most popular products thus start today journal. I served dreaming about this a couple of years ago. I had been doing this daily practice based on several different people. I had heard about several different things and I gotta put them together into one daily practice, which was every single day. I wrote down the dreams I had for my life, but I wrote them as if they had already happened. There's something really powerful about claiming a goal as if it's already done, and I rode down every day- and it was how I set my intentions and then I would post about it on social and so many people. What are you doing? What is that? Where do I get that journal and I was like eyes: it's not a journal, it's just a notebook, I'm just riding down the same thing every single day, but what I think is interesting, as business owners or creators is often times. In fact, most of the time your audience will tell you what it wants from you and I kept pushing it off because I was like you guys. This is not a big deal, but it was an people kept asking for, and I finally just thought what, if I turn this into a product and I started to dream and plan- and I literally taped pictures to the wall of my office, of what I dreamed that my journal would look like in the intention behind it, and I wanted the covers to be really pretty, and I wanted it to be something that you could do once a quarter and then, as you completed, each journal. You'd have a stack of this evidence of how intentional you were about your life and we figured it out, and I mean you know some times we messed up on the shipping and sometimes we rest up on the interior, but we failed our way to where we are today, which is the start today journal in the hands of hundreds of thousands of people. So incredible such a blessing for me to be able to go on Instagram and see hashtag start today journal and see people all over the world using this practice as a way to aim.

as little girls, many of us were the ones who organised exactly how the barbie accessories would be distributed fairly.
We were the ones who instigated play, dates or ran for drama club president. It was

That's why so many of us struggle with the mantle now we do.

I need you to embrace the idea that you are a leader, in fact,
We all need you to do that I've.
Spent the last half decade of my life building up a community of women, but
online and in person who believe in a similar philosophy. As I do, we,

Here is the truth from the very bottom of my heart. I am,
Looking for one more fan
I don't need one more woman too, like my instagram feed or think my shoes are cute.
Not trying to develop a community of fans,
I'm trying to develop a community of leaders.
Are you an influenza?
Are you and media
Do you run a conference, a business, a podcast
Are you a mom in the peach here? Are you
a teller at the local bank.
are you a volunteer for Sunday school at church? Are you are high?
students? Are you a grandma of seven great?
I need you, we need you,
We need you to live and to your purpose we need.
you to create and inspire and build and dream
We need you to blaze a trail and then turn around and light the way with your magic. So other women can follow behind you. We need
you to believe in the idea that every kind of woman dessert
a chance to be who she was meant to be
and she may never realized, if you- yes, you don't speak.
That truth into her life.
We will be able to do that if you first practice the idea of being made for more in your own life after all. If
you don't see it
How do you know you can be it?
if women in your community or your network, marketing group or yours, zoom but class- don't ever see an example of a confident woman how,
They find the courage to be confident.
If our daughters don't see a daily practice of us feeling not only comfortable but truly fulfilled by the choice, to be utterly ourselves
How will they learn that behaviour?
pursuing your goals for yourself is so important.
and I'd argue. That is an essential factor in living. A happy and fulfilled existence
But it's not enough simply to give you permission to make your dream manifest. I
want to challenge you to love the pursuit enter
open we celebrate who you become along the journey.
When your light shines brighter others won't be harmed by the glare they'll, be
encouraged to become a more luminescence version of themselves.
That's. What leadership looks like leader
We are encouraging leader share information leader,
hold up a light to show you the way
leaders hold your hand when it gets hard
True leaders are just as excited for your success as they are for their own
because they know that when one of us does well, all of us come up
when one of us exceeds all of us, succeed,
be able to lead other women too that place if you truly believe that every woman is worthy and called to something sacred that require
opening your eyes and your heart
to certain women. You may not have noticed before
and though it may seem slightly off topic for a book on personal growth. I want,
to ask you to consider who you're, including in your sphere of leadership,
