You Are THAT Woman.

[With my on-camera coaching client and friend, Stefani Threadgill on her CW33 TV  taping]

 

Hey Sista,

As I was cleaning up my messy desk today, I came across this notecard I had saved a few years ago. It made me think of a powerful experience I had yesterday with a few other ladybosses. The notecard does not say who the writer is, but it could have come directly from me:

 

“I am that woman. I have a brilliant heart & a beautiful mind.

I am me, a perfectly flawed, beautyFULL work in progress.

I promise to lift women up, have their backs & make it safe for them to be exactly WHO THEY ARE. 

I’m on a MISSION to raise the standards for how we treat each other, how we treat ourselves, and how we treat the world. 

Every time I look in the mirror I’ll remind myself that I’m not alone, that I’m beautiful, that my voice matters & 

that I AM ENOUGH.” 

 

I encourage you to print that out as a reminder. If you have been following SOS for a while, you know this is my mission and it has been a beautiful experience to go out in the field and work more 1×1 with women. To see women in action, pushing past their fears, living this mantra, and stepping into their purpose is mind-blowing.

My on-camera coaching client Stefani is one of the hardest working women I know! She was given her own segment on the hit CW33 show NewsFix and hired me to sharpen her on-camera presence. She is a brilliant sex therapist with a dream to reach more people and save marriages.

With any dream there are many components that go into it. For television, the list is endless from your voice, delivery, content, energy, charisma, makeup, hair, wardrobe and on and on. I have been on a zillion sets with a zillion producers, makeup artists, stylists, camera operators, etc. Just one of those people can have a bad vibe and wreck your flow. That’s an overall life lesson in who you surround yourself with and why I have copied Oprah’s quote and posted it on the right side bar of this blog, “Be responsible for the energy you bring to this space.” 

 

[With MUA Daniela Bell]

 

Yesterday, Stefani had a big tape day and knocked it out of the park. My amazing makeup artist friend, Daniela- owner of The Makeup Zone– did her makeup so beautifully. The collaborative effort was total perfection! Back to this part of the above quote:

Lift women up, have their backs & make it safe for them to be exactly WHO THEY ARE.

I left the shoot with tears in my eyes. Not just because I was a proud coach, but proud to be part of something so special and witnessing a purpose-driven woman step into her greatness. Regardless of our profession, shouldn’t we all strive to be THAT type of woman?  I challenge each of you to be more conscious and intentional about lifting  women up. The first step is to stop being so self-absorbed and stop making everything about you. Sorry, not sorry, if that pisses you off. We have enough pressure and things that tear us down. Don’t add to that problem. Help eradicate it.

 

 

In my on-camera confidence workshops, I teach women to change their physicality to get out of their heads before stepping on set or on stage to speak. Loved catching Stefani do her “Wonder Woman Pose” before filming started. This works and helps you go in to any stressful situation. I like to flip my head over and shake my hair and always pull my shoulders back and WALK TALL. Do you have a quick physical confidence builder?

 

Make it a daily habit to lift, compliment, hug, smile and empower other women.
GROUP FIST PUMP!

DO THE WONDER WOMAN SPIN [Repost]

quote-courage-is-the-most-important-of-all-the-virtues-because-without-courage-you-can-t-practice-any-maya-angelou-5507

[Rarely do I have time to go back and browse through my blog posts, but I’m glad I stumbled (well, let’s keep it real.. God led me to) this post from June 1, 2013. June is always special to me because it marks the halfway point of the year and I love to pause and reflect on how the year is unfolding. Also interesting– this week marked the 3 year anniversary of Maya Angelou’s passing. I pray you take some time to reflect and get even more intentional about how you  want to rest of 2017 to play out.]

Hey Wonder Woman!

Last week I watched an episode of Oprah’s Super Soul Sunday with Maya Angelou.  Have you seen it? Her story of courage, triumph, bravery and success has been resonating with me all week.  In this interview with Oprah, Maya spoke of the concept of courage being the foundation of all other virtues (above quote) so it forced me to look inward at my own level of courage.  Often throughout my life, I have been courageous and brave, but there are also many times I have tucked my tail between my legs and chose to shrink back.  We all have a certain level of courage, but what is that special ingredient that gives us that little bit extra tenacity to tap into our inner Wonder Woman and push forward instead of shrinking back?  Can you think of a time right now when you consciously chose to dig deeper and dust off your red + gold bustier?  It’s a great exercise to reflect on those moments as a reminder for the next time we are tempted to be a coward instead of courageous.

Courage is the ability to confront fear, pain, danger, uncertainty or intimidation.

I takes courage to walk down the aisle and make the vow. It takes courage to wake up everyday and raise your child.  It takes courage to follow your dreams.  It takes courage to walk away from a toxic relationship.  It takes courage to speak your truth. It takes courage not to conform.  It takes courage to let go of your past. So, yes– I definitely believe in Ms. Angelou’s concept that it takes courage to practice all the other virtues consistently.  Cheers to all of us having more consistent courage this week, this month, this year.  Even if you have to fake-it-till-ya-make it.  You can be courageous even when you don’t feel like.  I love John Wayne’s quote, “Courage is being scared and saddling up anyway”. Go lock yourself in the bathroom and do the Wonder Woman spin if it will help….

THIS WEEK I WILL:

  1. Reflect on my many courageous moments.
  2. Dig deeper when I feel my wimpy self taking over.
  3. Not shrink back.
  4. Dust off my imaginary red + gold bustier.
  5. Remember God is always on my side.
  6. Be brave!
  7. Never ever ever ever give up.
  8. Not allow anyone to intimidate me.
  9. Face my fears head on.
  10. Pray to have more courage.
  11. Do the right thing.
  12. Put my shoulders back + WALK TALL!

WHAT’S FEEDING YOU?

fullsizerender-114

Hey SOS Sista,

One of the things I love the most about Instagram is coming across thought-provoking quotes and messages. Social Media– if used properly– can be a great tool for your personal development and spiritual growth. (So be conscious of who you follow!!) A few days ago, the above quote really caught my attention. It made me stop and ponder on what I’ve been feeding on this year. Soul sucking or soul enriching food? It’s the perfect time of the year for us all to think about this.

I’ve mentioned how much I love this time of the year because I take time to cocoon. Being a person who is easily distracted, I learned what steps I must take to get focused. Cocooning is a wonderful time for to catch up on reading inspiring books and watching motivational videos. I know you busy mama’s are time restricted especially around the holidays so try taking small chunks to cocoon. Maybe an hour before the kids get up or an hour after they go to bed. It’s vital to our growth that we take time away from meaningless distractions, people who drain us and get focused on the changes we need to make. That truly is the core of SOS! You cannot depend on that once a week sermon you hear on Sunday mornings. If you deeply desire to make hardcore and lasting changes— it takes effort, time and laser-beamed focus.

What have you been feeding yourself in 2016? 

FEED: verb

  1. to give food to

  2. to furnish something essential to the development, sustenance, maintenance, or operation of feeds the mind>

Will you let another year go by feeding your mind and spirit junk food?  2017 is right around the corner and I know you have those goals to set, fears to overcome and a breakthrough around the corner.

Are you ready?
Are you dragging your feet?
Are you allowing insecurity and fear to lead the way? 

I can help you get ready.

I can help you get motivated.

I can help you build more confidence!

Do not allow more time to go by and you get to mid 2017 and still have not made changes. Consider me you spiritual dietician. Let’s get you on a healthy spiritual diet. 

Stop letting yourself down and make 2017 the best ever!

To make it easier on you to take that step forward, I’m offering a holiday special on private sessions. Buy one private session and get one session. ($300 Value for $150) Let’s work together for 2 hours for the price of 1 hour. 

Special offer ends Dec 15, 2017.

I AM… A BIT BOSSY // New Video

Hello Gorgeous!

It has been an amazing, life changing, sometimes frustrating, work in progress to build my brand and Sanctuary Of Style. The tool that has helped me the most is video!  I crack up when I look back at some of the very first SOS videos and how green I was. But, dang it— I had drive and passion! With those two things, we can accomplish anything even when all the pieces aren’t in place and things aren’t perfect. I shot my first video on my phone without a light kit or fancy editing.  Now, I not only coach/mentor women, but I also get to teach people how to get started sharing their message on video! Regardless of your career or ministry, video is a wonderful way for people to get to know you and your business.

With that said, I’m excited to finally have a new video sharing my mission: 

 

I would love to hear from you!

What have you learned on this journey with me?

Have you made lasting changes? Like what?

 

Did you get my FREE ebook? As a gift for joining the mailing list at TiffanyHendra.com, you will receive my ebook of 101 Affirmations and a list of “I Am’s”. I’m a firm believer in speaking powerful words over yourself on a daily basis.

Love & Ladyballs,

Tiff
