Happy Sunday Sistas!
I trust you all had a wonderful weekend and are taking some quality “ME” time to prepare for a fab week ahead. I had such a fantastic week filled with several beautiful experiences and witnessing women lifting one another up and fanning each other’s flames. You know that is what SOS is all about! This morning, I was thinking back on the week and realized the common thread weaving through each event I attended and the clients I worked with– was women were COOPERATING instead of competing! It’s remarkable when strong, confident women operate from a state of cooperation and collaboration instead of competition. As I get older and work with more and more women, I realize those who feel the need to compete are just insecure and unsure of their gifts and talents. I know I say it often, but it’s the truth– women are truly powerful beings all on their own, but when they unite….it changes the world! All of the women I collaborated with last week work in the same industry as I do. Many women would shy away from helping someone in their industry because they would view it as competition. When we realize that what we have to offer the world, complete with our unique abilities, personality and talents– then competition is nonexistent. I give mad props to personal stylist- Rayne Hagstrom, life coach- Kim Somers Egelsee and TV Host- Patricia Kara for operating from a higher level and helping other women to come up higher as well. You ladies inspire me!
The definition of compete: Strive to gain or win something by defeating or establishing superiority over others who are trying to do the same. Synonyms: contest, race, rivalry. NO THANK YOU!
The definition of cooperate: Act jointly; work toward the same end. Assist someone or comply with their requests. Synonyms: Collaborate, pull together. YES!!
THIS WEEK I WILL….
- Seek out people to encourage.
- Operate from a place of cooperation.
- Appreciate my unique gifts + talents.
- Realize there is no competition when I am being authentic.
- Compliment a stranger.
- Walk in love no matter what.

- Not dummy down and dim my light.

- Help others dreams to come true!
