REWIND: Gratitude, Giving + Genuine Abundance

REWIND: Gratitude, Giving + Genuine Abundance

November 26, 2020

This year has shown us that with all of the negativity in the world, we have to fight to maintain an attitude of gratitude. Many of us understand the strong connection between wealth, gratitude and giving, but for those who don’t know, the concept is simple: the more you give, the more you receive.

This is why I believe we all need to focus on giving in this season because giving activates abundance. Our attitude toward gratitude and giving will determine whether we will reach the abundance we desire and it will show us whether or not we’re mentally and spiritually prepared to maintain it.

In this rewind episode, although recorded three years ago, the message resonates with our current state in 2020. After re-listening to this episode and checking myself, I believe it serves as a gentle reminder to extend grace to both ourselves and others, to fight for our gratitude when times seem tough and to move through this world as great, grateful and cheerful givers.

Key discussion points from this episode include:

  • How Gratitude & Giving Connect To Abundance - 7:35
  • Check Your Spirit Of Gratitude - 14:40
  • Becoming A Cheerful Giver - 19:13

This episode is brought to you by Created For Purpose. This 5-day challenge is designed to help you get unstuck and transform your gift into a purposeful resource in the marketplace. Join us on December 7th and learn how to prevail online and thrive in turbulent times. To sign up visit patricewashington.com/challenge.

Gurpreet Kaur: Remember to Say Thank You

Gurpreet Kaur: Remember to Say Thank You

November 19, 2020

Welcome to day four of our week-long celebration of National Entrepreneurship Day. While many of us try to take the journey alone, I can’t express the importance of community and support when stepping into entrepreneurship. Being an entrepreneur is 70% mental and 30% physical, and our thoughts, beliefs and state of mind play the most important role in building success and maintaining peace.

Both in life and in business, we all need support and someone whom we can be vulnerable with and bounce ideas off of. When we try to do it alone, we allow doubt and fear to step in and stop us from living our best life. Today’s guest spent years battling depression, anxiety, and suicidal thoughts, until gratitude became the focus that pushed her out of pain and into purpose.

Gurpreet Kaur is a Mindset Transformation Coach from Northern Ireland who is on a mission to help others feel happier, more confident and in control in a world that seems ever more chaotic and filled with fear.

Diagnosed with depression at 19, Gurpreet found herself riddled with sadness and guilt as the years went by. After meeting and marrying the love of her life, she soon realized that marriage didn't magically do what she hoped it would. It didn't erase the pain, fix the relationships or suddenly make her feel like she was good enough, pretty enough or worthy enough.

Fifteen years later, Gurpreet experienced a divine interruption that took her on a journey toward forgiveness and compassion for herself and others. Now an international speaker, Gurpreet is described as “inspirational and a life changing presence” by her clients. It is her purpose to ensure that anyone she ever comes in contact with knows that there is a power that is unlocked when one has faith and gratitude.

Key discussion points from this episode include:

  • Speaking Opportunities Into Existence - 4:29
  • The Journey To Launch - 10:01
  • Salvation From Suicide & Depression - 13:25
  • From Purpose To Platform - 18:32
  • The Simpler Method & Minding The Gaps - 21:07
  • Preparation For Such A Time As This - 23:11
  • Fulfillment & Feedback - 26:43

Remember to Say Thank You Takeaways

  • “God sends you everything that you need the moment you need it.” - Gurpreet Kaur
  • “You can’t sell something that you’re not confident about.” - Gurpreet Kaur
  • “I couldn’t transform it into a business because I wasn’t able to think of it as a business.” - Gurpreet Kaur
  • “I was fighting to live a life that I didn’t want to live.” - Gurpreet Kaur
  • “Depression wasn’t going to take a holiday just because I had.” - Gurpreet Kaur
  • “When was the last time you said thank you?” - Gurpreet Kaur
  • “God was with me the whole time.” - Gurpreet Kaur
  • “The moment I knew that I had the power to change me, that’s the day I knew my God given purpose.” - Gurpreet Kaur
  • “You’ve got everything you need within you to do whatever you want to do.” - Gurpreet Kaur
  • “I strongly believe that we speak our life into existence.” - Gurpreet Kaur
  • “Money wasn’t where I wanted to begin, because purpose is where I began in the first place.” - Gurpreet Kaur
  • “Money is the natural byproduct, but what I’m more enamored with is fulfillment.” - Patrice Washington
  • “There may be people that you never meet, but to know that you left an imprint in their life, that’s what it’s all about.” - Patrice Washington
  • “The impact is beyond me, it’s beyond you, and it’s bigger than us.” - Gurpreet Kaur

Evelyn LeVasseur: No More Shrinking

Evelyn LeVasseur: No More Shrinking

November 16, 2020

There are so many national days of celebration, but I recently learned that November 17th is National Entrepreneurs Day. This day is centered around highlighting and celebrating entrepreneurship throughout the country and sharing the stories of those who took a leap of faith, endured the challenges and trials of building a business, and designed their ideal lifestyle.

The work pillar is all about living your life’s purpose and getting the clarity needed to execute successfully. My main focus is to help people earn more without feeling like they have to chase, and I’ve watched countless women transform their lives and others by becoming entrepreneurs. For this reason, I found it necessary to turn National Entrepreneurs Day into a week-long celebration.

This week you can expect exclusive bonus interviews with amazing women from the recent cohort of my signature program, Purpose 2 Platform. Sharing how they gained clarity and now live purposeful lives, this week’s guest wants every woman to know that she can want to change her body, and love it at the same time.

Evelyn LeVasseur is the owner of Evelyn LeVasseur Fitness, a company that focuses on helping busy, overwhelmed moms reach their body goals without dieting or deprivation. Evelyn knows that moms can be especially hard on themselves and expect perfection: in our homes, jobs, marriages, and of course our bodies.

Most importantly, Evelyn knows that moms want what's absolutely best for their children, and having negative feelings about ourselves can lead our children to have negative feelings about themselves. So, Evelyn is sure to approach all things from the angle of knowing that our actions shape our children and the legacies of health that we leave them.

Evelyn is a certified Group and Personal Trainer, a Hormonal Fat Loss Coach, and has a B.A. in Psychology with a Masters in Education. She is dedicated to living her life to its greatest capacity and providing her daughters and all women the tools to live their greatest lives with strength, resilience, self-compassion, kindness, faith and health.

Alexandra Elle: After The Rain

Alexandra Elle: After The Rain

November 12, 2020

How many times have you allowed validation from others to determine your self-worth? How many times have your decisions been based on what someone else thought was best for you?

I’ve met so many Purpose Chasers who have accepted the choices and opinions of others as validation regarding how they live their lives. Placing limiting beliefs on themselves and refusing to claim their power, I’ve watched purpose driven women use fear from past hurts to prevent them from walking into what they’re truly purposed to do.

It’s time to detach our identity from others and discover our own self-worth. It’s also time to learn how to heal from within and lean into the power that you are your own validation. Today’s guest is here to show us how to heal, after the rain.

Alexandra Elle is an author and wellness consultant who found healing through journaling. She teaches workshops and retreats that assist others in finding their voices through storytelling, poetry, and narrative writing rooted in truth without shame.

In her new book, After the rain, Alexandra releases a moving collection of essays that help to rebuild self-worth by tearing down limiting beliefs, dispelling imposter syndrome, and removing toxic relationships.

Writing multiple books and journals, most recently After the Rain, Neon Soul, and Today I Affirm: A Journal That Nurtures Self-Care, Alexandra Elle is on a mission to build community & self-care practices through literature & language. She is currently an author at Chronicle Books and the host of the “hey, girl.” podcast.

Key discussion points from this episode include:

  • Change: The Journey To Self-Discovery - 6:54
  • Creating Space For Motherhood - 14:05
  • Mending Parental Relationships - 19:12
  • Time: Lessons Learned From Absent Fathers - 24:52
  • Validation: Lessons Learned From Situationships - 30:28
  • Love: Learning How To Let Others Love You - 36:55

This episode is brought to you by our complimentary Purpose Chasers community. Want to share your aha moments with a group of like-minded purpose chasers from all over the world? Visit iamapurposechaser.com and join NOW.

Master The Margin

Master The Margin

November 5, 2020

When was the last time you took inventory on how you genuinely feel? What isn’t working for you in this season or preventing you from who you say you want to become? It’s time we get to the root of what or who or where your peace is being robbed, and it can often be a result of how you master your personal margin.

Personal margin is the difference between your time and energy that results in peace.

Living in the midst of a pandemic has placed many of us in a negative space when it comes to personal margin simply because we didn’t establish a well-rounded perspective or view of how we could continue to move purposely through the world prior to change. Our routines consisted of bad habits that combined excuses, unused resources, and wasted time. We relied on one person or one activity to bring us peace, when we should have set time aside to do the things that bring us peace first.

What are the excuses you are allowing into your personal space that are contributing to you wasting time and energy and money that could be redirected toward your personal margin?

The six pillars of wealth contribute to how we are impacted by life’s events. When we take the time to focus on our space, faith, fit, work, people, and money pillars - we are able to achieve overall well-being, which we believe is the ultimate form of wealth.

In this episode, I want to share with you three ideas that I believe you can adopt today that will help you master the margin and reach a peace beyond understanding:  

  1. Take Inventory - 07:57
  2. Figure Out Where Resources Are Being Wasted- 16:45
  3. Spread Your Opportunity For Impact.- 25:33

We don’t just want to walk out of life with more experience or more money, we want to have peace as well. It’s time to become the master of your own life.

This episode is brought to you by my new book, Redefine Wealth for Yourself. We have compiled the greatest lessons and exercises that we’ve learned on the Redefining Wealth Podcast to bring you the ultimate guide to redefine wealth for yourself.

Want to stop chasing money, find fulfillment, and live your life’s purpose? Pre-order your copy of the book by visiting patricewashington.com/preorder/.
