This is Video 4 in my Cuba series.
The last couple of videos I’ve been talking about the impact that I want to create in this world, which is to eliminate fear in 1 million women across the globe by 2020, so they can live their life with power and purpose and without apology.
I talk about my spiritual breakdown in the last couple of years, and my reawakening and my rebirth of the person that I want to be and how I want to show up in this world.
I am doing the top 10 things I have learned over the last couple of years.
Video 1 talks about what you want to create in this world and why you want to create it.
Video 2 is about the creation piece- what do you want to create for yourself, for the people you want to serve and for the world at large?
Video 3 talks about connection – how are you getting connected, or do you need to get more connected to your inner self, your connection to the people that you want to serve and the connection to the people who can help you and you can help them. Because impact doesn’t happen by yourself, it happens with the collaboration of other like-minded people.
So today’s video I want to talk about Engagement. How are you showing up in the world and how are you engaging with the world? I always like to talk about the 3 most important ways you can take the learning and apply it into your life, and how to apply it into your life immediately.
Today I want to talk about engagement.
Engagement with yourself. Are you engaged with your why and your what and your how on a daily basis? Do you have that constant reinforcement of ‘This is what I really want to create no matter what fear shows up.’ You can’t engage with other people until you are engaged head, heart, soul, mind and body with yourself. Because that is what people feel. They feel that energy. If there is a misalignment or a disconnect in any of that, people feel that and the engagement bar is lowered and people are not connected with you.
Engagement with others. How are you engaging with people? What method are you using to get your message out to the world, to create that message that you want to serve and support people on a grander scale? The engagement piece is – are people hearing what you are saying? Are they hearing what message you have for the world? Instead for most people, which is really sad, we are hearing the fears and the resistance that you have and the volume is just really turned down way too low. We are all meant to serve on a grander scale in this world, I really believe that, we all have a purpose. And the only way to get that purpose out into the world is through engagement with other people. How are you engaging with others? What methodology? There is video, audio, speaking, putting on events, having 1:1 conversations with people, social media, and there is real world in real time. As the internet has taken a hold of our life, we are missing that 1:1 engagement, that face to face engagement which is so important.
Engagement with the world at large. In order to get engaged with the world, you need to be motivated and driven by your why. Why are you doing what you are doing and who are you meant ot serve in this world? I say that and reinforce it because so many people out there say, ‘I really want to save the world and I really want to make a difference,’ but yet you keep your engagement really at a low level frequency. That is not going to happen, that’s the reality of it. If you have big dreams and big vision, how are you engaging with the world? What is your mission statement? Mine is eliminate fear in 1 million women across the globe so they can live their life with power and purpose and without apology. That just came to me in moments of meditation. And coming from the non-woowoo space, I realized that I was so engaged and listening to the messages that were being given to me and the only way to hear the messages coming from the God, the Universe, the higher up, whoever it is that does it for you, that if you are not listening then you are not engaging. You are not connected and you are not creating.
So the three engagements are with yourself, with the people you are meant to serve, and with the world at large. What platform are you using? Hands down you have got to use video, you have got to use the 1:1 piece and you’ve got to use the internet tools that are available to us. The most useful resource that we have is the thing that is probably in our very back pocket or in our purse, which is typically no more than 6 feet away from us – our phone. Use your phone as the tool to engage with people just like I am doing right here from Cuba. The internet is horrible, practically non-existent, but I am still creating and engaging and connecting with people through the use of video.
I encourage you to pull out your phone and shoot a video. Give it a shot, give it a whirl, don’t worry about what you look like. Just really start that engagement piece.
I look forward to talking to you in Video 5!
