A while ago, I made a pledge to myself: to be true to my authentic self, to put my whole heart and soul into everything I do. I promised myself that whatever I do, I will let my brilliance SHINE through it! But that didn’t stop the doubts from coming (remember the Buzzing Bees I spoke about in Episode 10?) – those buzzing bees came, they tried to derail and even to STOP me from even getting started.
But I did it! I overcame those buzzing bees and I launched Shine Happy Hour over the Weekend!
Not only that, I launched it as a "hybrid event" which saw me collaborating with influencers from Spain, Nigeria, United Kingdom and the United States. How did I turn the situation around?
It all begins in the mind-space. I reminded myself that nothing is impossible when you want to achieve a dream, you just have to get to the point where the force of your dream is stronger than the force of your fears and doubts. The moment you are victorious in your mind-space, in your thoughts, success is assured. The physical has no choice but to fall in line!
When you liberate yourself from your fears, your actions actually liberate others. The first step is to recognise you have a responsibility to release yourself and those around you from any form of comparison. Remember you are an ORIGINAL, not a copy! Discovering your own UNIQUE gifts and using them in your own unique way is what helps you SHINE your very brightest!
When we all let our light shine, we of course give other people permission to do the same – it’s like one flame lighting another, until together we create a huge fire. This is what is possible when each of us answers our Shine-Call and operates in our Shine Mandate!
Shine Happy Hour – was an idea for a targeted networking and outreach, to bring people together for dinner, conversations and networking.
So, as I celebrate my victory, I recognise and I’m humbled by the fact that it is by extension a victory for others, and the proof can be seen in the positive reviews coming in so far about Shine Happy Hour inaugural experience.
Here’s what Diana Richards had to say:
Thank You Clara for your event and for providing the space for us women to SHINE. It was full of wonderful positive energy and lots of smiles. You’ve done amazing. - Diana Richards
