So much has happened since my vacation at the end of July. I really want to share everything with you but I don’t want to bombard you with a super long post. I will be sharing my adventures hopefully a piece at a time over the next little while.
If you’re a regular follower of Being Elle you’ll have noticed the design change. I like to change things up every year or so. Over the years, Being Elle has grown and changed much like I myself have grown and changed. I’ve been searching for such a long time. I’ve had my ups and downs and I’ve struggled, especially over the last year or so, with trying to find my “purpose”. (More on that another day.) For now, just know that I’ve had some real momentum in finding my purpose. Since we’re on the topic of purpose I’ve come to realize I can be doing so much right here! I’m excited to really bring my passions out and show them to all of you!
I’d like to share with you my most recent adventures which happened Wednesday of this week. A couple of weeks ago, a friend invited me to a women’s conference and there was just something about it that made me say Yes. It must have been the title: ROAR – Reach Out. Achieve Results. I knew very little about it going in, so I had no real idea what it was going to be like. Man, I am so glad I went! It was truly amazing. First off, there were quite a few men who attended which I thought was really amazing. The speakers were exceptionally powerful, and truly approachable, their whole vision is exactly where I’m at.
“You are meant to be all that you are uniquely created to be. At ROAR, we believe it’s not only possible, but within your grasp.” – Excerpt from ROAR’s Vision
I took notes, lots of notes, and I want to help start a movement! The best way to do that is to share what I’ve learned. So, the following in italics are notes I took, primarily from the Keynote Speaker, Diana Kokoszka. (NOTE: The ideas are not my own, however, the notes were written down by me while attending the conference.)
ROAR stands for Reach Out Achieve Results.
Change Your Thoughts and Change the World!
Today’s western society is very much a HAVE — DO — BE way of living. If I have the same things as that successful person and do what they do then I can BE just like them! But that doesn’t work, does it? The way to change is to BE — DO — HAVE. To be like someone else you have to think like they do. Successful people live like everything they wanted has already happened.
Are your thoughts the hero? Or the villain? We get addicted to negative thinking, Instantly change those negative thoughts into positive. Change impossible to I’M POSSIBLE. You can have fear or faith, but you can’t have both.
I will leave you with one last nugget of gold from my notes. This really stood out for me. The acronym for FEAR:
So, let’ get out there and do some roaring of our own. Be BOLD. Be Powerful. Be Everything You Set YOUR Mind To!
