Do you want to know a secret? Psst… come closer… closer still… are you paying attention?
… OK Here it is… I’m an undercover crystal junkie… you know, the sparkly… magic... totally rocking my mojo crystals kind.
The kind that gets my heart singing with joy when I lovingly fondle them with awe and respect because I get just how powerful and healing they are.
So what’s crystals got to do with the Internet and what the hell is a Paragon anyway?
I’m glad you asked because you’re going to be taken on a little magical journey right now…
This story is for real… and it’s infused with a sad flavour, but I don’t want you to focus on the bad stuff, the crap and the tears… I want you to take this and file it away as an important life lesson to help you get more of the things you want.
You can do whatever you set your heart on… and achieve your dreams. I have full confidence in YOU + here’s why…
If you want to know how to crack the seal of the holy business grail and find abundance + joy in what you do, then you need to keep reading.
How little Monika turned into Nika after discovering her true purpose
Look I’ve been around the business block for some 8 years now. It certainly has been an interesting and exciting journey for most of the time. But there were times when I didn’t have such a great time… when I was frustrated, angry, depressed and wondering what the heck I was doing…
I’m sure you can relate to this if you currently steer the rudders of your own business ship.
I failed 2 businesses in network marketing and discovered my love for the written word instead. Interestingly enough I’ve always been better at expressing my feelings on paper (or digital fairy dust), than in person.
- I’m not big on meaningless chatter – I prefer to be surrounded by awesome people I trust and have life-changing conversations with them.
- I’m not a big socialite – unless I’m in the presence of dear and true friends.
- I’m not social – unless I’m in an environment that suits my personality.
- I don’t make friends easily – TRUE friends I can rely on for life – but when I make them they are for keeps.
- I tend to laugh and snort for no apparent reasons – and I admit to getting the odd curious look from strangers when I turn from perfectly normal (what is normal anyway) to crazy hysterical hyena in a matter of minutes.
- I’m head strong and don’t take criticism lightly.
- I don’t hang out with negative, complaining and whingeing people – I generally give them a wide berth.
- I’m strong, bold, funny, happy, reasonably balanced, smart, intelligent, CREATIVE, passionate, stubborn, silly, emphatic (an essential character trait for any copywriter worth her/his fee), sassy, caring, generous, kind (unless someone pisses me off), nurturing, spiritual (more on this shortly), and visionary.
In short, I’m human just like you. And chances are we may be so different we never become real-life friends, but we can certainly have an intelligent conversation if we’re to meet in the queue at the coffee shop, or in transit at the airport… or of course here.
So why am I telling you this?
Because for years I’ve kept this integral part of me locked away… for safety reasons. I threw away the key to the “real” me because I was afraid of being judged by people like you… by anyone.
I’ve grown up being misjudged by my family and it turned me into fearful… having-to-please-everyone-Monika.
Only my husband and my close friends knew the real me, warts + all.
Then a few months back a mentor made a comment that changed my perspective on how I SHOW UP in the world. He said: “you always aim to please others, don’t you Monika?”
That comment angered me at the time because I didn’t see eye to eye with it. But when I got home that night I thought about it some more and had to agree with my mentor. Admittedly I didn’t like the truth (who does anyway), and it took me some time to admit it to myself.
Which brings me to YOU…
How you show up in the world has a huge impact on the results you get…
Let me repeat…
How you show up in the world has a huge impact on the results you get.
Because when you show up in tune with your true persona… as YOU… with all the bits + bobs that are annoying about you, and despite your flaws… people will LOVE the real you and they won’t run away from you when you voice your opinion.
It took me over 40 years to learn this lesson my friend.
I was afraid to show my true colours because I didn’t want to be judged for having an opinion.
People who’ve been waiting for me to show up are attracted to me now because I’m being authentic and true to my spirit. They’re grateful I’ve showed up and the new Nika is who I truly, sincerely am. I AM the creative force that’s come out with my wRiteBrain brand and who is no longer afraid of speaking her truth, regardless if it gets me judged by you.
In fact… I now know that every person who judges me wrongly, brings me one step closer to the my Paragon.
And my Paragon is the person who allows me to live my life with verve. Because my Paragon = my client model of excellence. And the Internet empowers me to reach out to my Paragon.
So there you have it. This is how crystals, the Internet + a hungry Paragon allow me to live my dreams, every single day.
Your Paragon will enable you to live your life on your terms, as long as you stand in your power and operate from spirit.
