Lucinda Cross: Get Off Your ASK

Lucinda Cross: Get Off Your ASK

May 28, 2020

When it comes to asking for what you want in life, are you the type of person who tries to figure things out on your own or are you the type of person who is willing to ask for help and support?

For many women, myself included, it’s hard for us to ask for what we want because we’re not taught to ask.

For me, I think about why I waited so long to ask for help when my business was crumbling in the last recession and it’s because I grew up in a household where I was not taught to ask. I was taught to figure it out.

Combine that with the fear many of us have about asking for support, and it’s no surprise so many women hold themselves back professionally, as entrepreneurs, and even in their relationships.

Today, Lucinda Cross, author of The Big ASK and an International speaker and influencer, joins us to unpack why so many of us fear asking for help. Lucinda pulls from her own experiences and from the hundreds of people she’s interviewed on this subject and has come up with some practical steps you can take now to get closer to asking your big ASK.

Through this program, you’ll receive accountability and support in a dynamic community designed so you can finally make progress and be ready before you even need to pull that trigger on what’s no longer serving you.

Get Off Your ASK Takeaways

  • The fear of asking usually comes from either not having clarity on what to ask or having asked before and been let down. – Lucinda Cross
  • Come up with 10 solid reasons this thing matters, then when you get rejected, remember those reasons and keep asking. – Lucinda Cross
  • When you tell people to ask for what they want, they usually only know what they don’t want. – Patrice Washington
  • No one wants to do anything for someone who is doing nothing. – Lucinda Cross
  • Don’t be an ASKhole (i.e. someone who keeps asking and asking, but then does absolutely nothing). – Lucinda Cross
  • Even on your best day, when your swagger is at 100% and everything about you is hot and on full blast, there will be those who don’t feel you. – Lucinda Cross
  • Two-thirds of 7 billion people want to say yes to you. They just need to know you exist and know what you have to offer. – Lucinda Cross

As you work on your big ASK, use Lucinda’s work as a guide. Walk through the ten reasons why this thing matters to you and as you go, get more and more clarity on your ask. You also want to avoid being an ASKhole, so be respectful of the person you’re making the big ask of and don’t waste their time.

Do you have a big ASK? Have you ever been an ASKhole? And how can you avoid it from happening again. Let us know in the comments below.

How I Learned to Love Myself

How I Learned to Love Myself

May 21, 2020

Have you ever struggled with loving yourself? I know I have. And since a Redefining Wealth community member recently asked me how I’ve learned to love myself, I figured it was probably a good topic to discuss, since it’s still an ongoing process for me.

For me, I grew up feeling very ugly. I compared myself to others in school, I felt I wasn’t as pretty as my cousins, and even at home, I grew up with too many people saying that I was ugly. So, in that respect, it wasn’t just a feeling, it was something I was told.

And because of that, I became addicted to achievement. My whole identity then became about being the best student with the highest grades, being the captain of the basketball and volleyball teams, and being class president – all fine things. But all were done from a place of trying to be loved, not from a place of purpose.

Since then, I’ve learned to love myself, but it’s something I have to continually practice every day. It is through evolving and learning new ways to embrace who we are and how we love ourselves that I’m able to love myself, and it’s the thing I want to share with you in today’s episode.

This episode is brought to you by Purpose 2 Platform, a 20-week business accelerator and mentorship program that will get you clear on HOW to package your PURPOSE, communicate your PROMISE to your ideal audience, choose the best PLATFORM for your personality and lifestyle and create a PREMIUM offer.

Through this program, you’ll receive accountability and support in a dynamic community designed so you can finally make progress and be ready before you need to pull that trigger on what’s no longer serving you.

How I Learned to Love Myself Takeaways

  • I have the power to reject what does not serve me and receive what empowers me. – Patrice Washington
  • You don’t have to pick a compliment apart or give a compliment back – just say thank you and receive it. – Patrice Washington
  • Learning to love myself comes from getting up every day and choosing to chase your purpose. – Patrice Washington
  • The more I see how my sloppy progress is a blessing to others, the more I fall in love with myself. – Patrice Washington
  • Loving myself has nothing to do with achievement – it has to do with fulfillment. – Patrice Washington
  • I don’t need anyone to tell me how to be me. – Patrice Washington
  • God was not practicing when he created the masterpiece that is Patrice. – Patrice Washington
  • Every day that I wake up with breath in my body is another opportunity to do my best to get it right. – Patrice Washington 

Are you struggling to love yourself? Are you struggling to find your purpose, or rather, to follow it? Are there topics or questions you’d like me to cover on Redefining Wealth? Let me know where you need support, and I’ll do my best to cover it in an upcoming episode.

Deborah Tillman: Parent With Purpose

Deborah Tillman: Parent With Purpose

May 7, 2020

If you’re a parent, then you already know parenting isn’t always easy, and parenting in the time of COVID-19 is something altogether different.

Our kids want to go to school. They want to play with their friends and have birthday parties and sleepovers, and go places. And they can’t do any of that right now.

Not only that, but for those 8 to 10 hours they were at school every day, they’re now at home. And you’re home with them trying to manage everything.

It can be a lot to handle, and it’s why I invited Dr. Deborah Tillman, host of America’s Supernanny and author of Parenting on Purpose, to give us parents some actionable steps we can take to be better, especially in the wake of this pandemic.

Join us as Dr. Deborah breaks down the reasons why parents need to encourage, connect and respond to their kids. As she says, “It’s important to give children the space they need to communicate what’s wrong and not be judged on or criticized for what they say.”

This episode is brought to you by Purpose 2 Platform, a 20-week business accelerator and mentorship program that will get you clear on HOW to package your PURPOSE, communicate your PROMISE to your ideal audience, choose the best PLATFORM for your personality and lifestyle and create a PREMIUM offer.

Herdyne Mercier: Stop Policing Grief

Herdyne Mercier: Stop Policing Grief

April 30, 2020

Does grief always have to be reserved for the loss of a loved one, friend or pet? Can you experience grief with any loss like the loss of a job, loss of normalcy or loss of your finances? 

According to Herdyne Mercier, Chief Grief Crusader and host of the Redefining Grief podcast, grief is a natural response to any loss and you have the right to grieve anything you want.

In the midst of this global pandemic, it’s normal to experience grief and not even realize that’s what you’re experiencing. You might be grieving the loss of your job, the loss of your income or the loss of being around friends or visiting your parents, and that’s normal and okay.

In today’s episode, Herdyne walks us through the anchors of grief and goes deeper into explaining why grief is normal and natural and how embracing grief and our grieving process is one of the best steps we can take for our future.

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.

Stop Policing Grief Takeaways

  • It is better to go to a house of mourning than to go to a house of feasting, for death is the destiny of everyone; the living should take this to heart. – Ecclesiastes 7:2
  • We should give people the dignity of their own grief process. – Patrice Washington
  • Grief has no timeframe. – Herdyne Mercier
  • Stop policing my grief because none of us are immune to heartache. – Herdyne Mercier
  • The ability to tell the truth about your heartache is freedom. – Herdyne Mercier
  • When you connect with someone who sees you, hears you and validates your feelings – that’s power. – Herdyne Mercier
  • I know what darkness is and I’m not going back so I have no choice but to anchor in my faith. – Herdyne Mercier
  • I want to die empty and die knowing I gave it my all. – Patrice Washington

As we’re all navigating life differently now, a lot of us are probably grieving our schedules, our titles, our routines, our income, etc. – and that’s okay. Grieve what you need to grieve, but also know that this time can produce a new normal that’s more glorious than how things were before. 

Let us know what you’re grieving about and how you’re processing that grief in the comments below.

T-Kea Blackman: Success Doesn’t Make You Exempt

T-Kea Blackman: Success Doesn’t Make You Exempt

April 23, 2020

With everything going on in the world right now it’s understandable that people are worried and scared. We’re in a time where our normalcy has been stripped from us and it doesn’t matter if you’re rich or poor or black or white. COVID-19 is no respecter of person.

Some communities are obviously more impacted by this virus than others, but we’ve seen both celebrities and everyday people stricken by it, and we know no one is exempt.

Not only is the virus detrimental to some, it’s having a catastrophic effect on our mental, physical and spiritual health. There are so many people out there who are suffering and afraid to speak up. 

That’s why this rewind episode with T-Kea Blackman, author of Saved & Depressed: A Suicide Survivor’s Journey of Mental Health, Healing & Faith and owner of Fireflies Unite, a mental health media and communications company, is so important.

Join us as T-Kea and I go deep into the topic of mental health. We cover everything from T-Kea’s own struggle with depression and her attempted suicide to society’s understanding of mental health.

This episode is brought to you by the Wellness Recovery Action Plan – a 4-week online self-designed prevention and wellness training that anyone can use to get well and stay well, so they can create the life they desire.

Hosted by T-Kea Blackman, this training is for you if you’re battling burn-out, struggling with making self-care a priority, especially in a season like this, and unclear about how to detect the early warning signs of deteriorating mental health.

The Wellness Recovery Action Plan is an evidence-based practice and was initially used by health care and mental health systems all over the world to address all kinds of physical, mental health and life issues. 

To find out more and claim your seat, visit firefliesunite.com/wrap.

 

Success Doesn’t Make You Exempt Takeaways

  • I didn’t realize my desire to end my life could be linked to depression and mental health. – T-Kea Blackman
  • We all have mental health. The problem is a lot of people use “mental health” and “mental illness” interchangeably and distort what each means. – T-Kea Blackman
  • People assume if they have mental health – good or bad – that they have issues, but that’s not true. – T-Kea Blackman
  • Depression is not a synonym for sadness. – T-Kea Blackman
  • When people use depression and sadness interchangeably, it minimizes the severity of depression and can cause more damage. – T-Kea Blackman
  • Sadness tends to fade away once a situation gets better, but with depression, there’s a lingering sadness that actually never leaves. – T-Kea Blackman
  • If we understand that depression is truly a disability, we can have a greater level of compassion for those suffering from it. – Patrice Washington

You can’t always see someone’s mental health just by looking at them. In fact, oftentimes, it’s the high-achieving, high-functioning people who have poor mental health or are struggling with a mental illness. That’s why we need to always show compassion for those struggling and really offer support instead of judgement.

Now, let us support you. How has COVID-19 affected your work, relationships, family, etc.? How has it affected you mentally, physically and spiritually? Are you struggling with or ashamed by what you’re feeling in the wake of this pandemic?

 

Redefining Wealth Rapid Wisdom Questions

And with that, let’s dig into T-Kea’s responses to our Redefining Wealth Rapid Wisdom Questions.

Define Success:

“Walking in my God-given purpose.”

Define Wealth in 3 Words or Less:

“Wholeness and peace.”

Real Money Answers for Every Woman: How to Win the Money Game With Or Without A Man by Patrice Washington

Tiffany Aliche: Ready to Be Realized

April 16, 2020

Varian Brandon: Committed to Truth

Varian Brandon: Committed to Truth

April 9, 2020

When it comes to getting clear and committing to your truth, what do you think is involved? And if you’ve spent your whole life pleasing others and doing what you think they’d want you to do instead of what your truth tells you to do, then how do you change?

According to Varian Brandon, a transformational business and leadership coach and an expert in helping her clients stand boldly in the truth of who they are, you’ve first got to tell yourself the truth.

For Varian, the equation of power is Truth2 + Voice = Power. Truth2 means truth to yourself first, then truth to others. For many of us, we won’t even tell the truth to ourselves, which makes it impossible to tell the truth to others.

In today’s episode, Varian and I unpack this idea of Truth2 and get into how she became committed to truth. Join us as we cover everything from Princess Diana to setting personal boundaries.

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.

Committed to Truth Takeaways

  • Unprocessed pain always becomes a part of your personality. – Varian Brandon
  • We don’t know people. We think we know people by what they look like, what they do and where they come from, but we don’t know people at all. – Varian Brandon
  • You have a choice not to like me and it doesn’t mean I’m bad. It just means that you’re exercising your choice. – Varian Brandon
  • I’m not a selfish person, but I am a self-first person. – Varian Brandon
  • I’m not attached to money and because I’m not, it has no leverage. – Varian Brandon
  • Truth is about awareness – you don’t automatically have to go to judgment. – Varian Brandon
  • Tell the truth to yourself knowing that then you get to decide what you want to do with that truth – if anything. – Varian Brandon
  • The most powerful thing you can do is look at your own truth and not turn away. – Varian Brandon

Truth is about awareness, not judgement. Given that statement, can you appreciate your truth more? Does it change what you tell yourself? Oftentimes, we tell the truth and then go immediately into judging whether it’s good or bad. 

What if you suspended that judgement? How would that change your truth? Let us know in the comments below.

Allie Casazza: Simplicity is Relative

Allie Casazza: Simplicity is Relative

April 2, 2020

When it comes to decluttering your home or office, it’s probably a chore you don’t get too excited about. Especially with all the emotions that can come up as you’re going through and purging things.

I get it, believe me. But I also get that the people who are most successful, don’t live in clutter – they can’t because they wouldn’t be able to function at their highest level if they did.

To help tackle this topic, I’ve invited Allie Casazza – founder of The Life Minimalist and host of The Purpose Show – to discuss what it means to live a minimalist life, and how decluttering your space can not only reduce stress, but can make you more successful in life and business.

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.

  • Living a minimalist life is about having less crap so I can focus on living my life instead of cleaning up after it. – Allie Casazza
  • In my business, I don’t have to know how to do all the things, but I have to know all the things that are being done. – Patrice Washington
  • Less time is not always the way to simplify in your business. – Allie Casazza
  • There is something deeply therapeutic about getting a closet cleaned out. – Allie Casazza
  • How we treat our space teaches other people how to treat us. – Patrice Washington
  • If I take myself back down to the level of status quo, there are people out there who will not be reached because I retreated. – Allie Casazza
  • I learned how to be a rich person. – Allie Casazza

 

Where are you when it comes to clutter? Are you someone who keeps stacks of anything and everything around or are you like Allie and purposeful in what you keep? Has decluttering made you more successful in life and business? We’d love to know.

Darnyelle Jervey Harmon: Next Level Everything

Darnyelle Jervey Harmon: Next Level Everything

March 26, 2020

How many times a day do you stop and compare yourself to someone else? So-and-so has a 6-figure business, and I don’t. So-and-so has a sold out program, and I don’t. So-and-so had all of these stunning pictures taken, and I’m still stuck with a headshot from three years ago.

Truth is: We’ve all compared ourselves and our journey to others. It’s natural. But if we get too caught up in comparing ourselves, it can only be detrimental to our success.

Today’s guest, Darnyelle Jervey Harmon, knows all about this. In fact, a major struggle for her has been around comparison, because she knows from first-hand experience how it can stall success. Fortunately, she’s been able to overcome it, but not without faith and trust in God. 

Join us as we talk about faith, God and the importance of each of us realizing how incredible we are.

This episode is brought to you by Purpose 2 Platform, a 20-week business accelerator and mentorship program that will get you clear on HOW to package your PURPOSE, communicate your PROMISE to your ideal audience, choose the best PLATFORM for your personality and lifestyle and create a PREMIUM offer.

Through this program, you’ll receive accountability and support in a dynamic community designed so you can finally make progress and be ready before you need to pull that trigger on what’s no longer serving you.

Next Level Everything Takeaways

  • I don’t care what other people think of me, I only care what God thinks of me. – Darnyelle Jervey Harmon
  • Either faith is going to win or fear will kill you every time. – Darnyelle Jervey Harmon
  • The only constant in life is God. I might change my hair, my man, whatever, but God is always God. – Darnyelle Jervey Harmon
  • If you were to realize that you’re incredible and if you were to help others realize that they’re incredible, too, then the world would be incredible. – Darnyelle Jervey Harmon
  • God created you. He did not have time to create a nobody. – Darnyelle Jervey Harmon
  • No one goes to bed a blunder and wakes up a wonder. – Darnyelle Jervey Harmon
  • God can’t use me the way he wants to use me if I’m overweight and can’t stand on a stage long enough to do everything he needs me for. – Darnyelle Jervey Harmon

Have you let comparison slow your success? Have you allowed disobedience and fear to keep you from your God-given purpose? What can you do today to move through this and step into the person God called you to be? Let us know in the comments below.
