Women Creating New Realities

Yes I Can

Universally, the most powerful words that all empowered women say to themselves is ‘Yes I can!’

These three simple words have courage, creative genius, power and magic built into them.

‘Yes I can.’ is the very stuff of dreams coming true.

Everything Is Going To Be Alright.

Coach Judit

Everything is going to be alright. Intuitively, we know this. We also know that we are strong, powerful and resilient.

Globally, we know that the pandemic will flatten, the dust will settle and we will return to normal, a slightly altered normal but normal nevertheless.

Let us remember…

That cool heads prevail, to discern the facts from the drama. To be informed but to stop news binging. To talk ourselves down from our anxiety by disproving our fear based inner dialogue with actual facts. 

And …

To breath deeply, to reduce our anxiety quickly and naturally.

To journal about our thoughts and feelings with pen and paper.

Review our options.

To think creatively.

Act responsibly, follow the rules laid out by our government and medical officials.

Focus our attention on daily random acts of kindness, ours and others.

Fear is normal, leverage it, get proactive, creative and productive.

Also …

Clean, organize and purge your home, car, office, electronic files ….

Start that creative project you’ve been thinking about.

Learn something new, read watch a documentary or e-learning …

Go for walks in the park. Play with your children. Jog. Meditate. Workout …

Reach out with a helping hand to the vulnerable and frail in your community.

Mend those fences, forgive and make peace.

Watch or listen to comedy! Dance! Listen to nature sounds, meditative music and your favourite bands, musicians.

Engage …

This is our time to govern our thoughts and feelings, open our heart and reach out to others with a helping hand and kindness.

If there was ever a time to have an immersive self-empowerment experience it’s now. Consciously, let us embody our authentic power and move forward with our innate creative power.

You are not alone, we are in this crisis together …

The Currency of Success …

Discomfort is the currency of success in life, love and leadership. If you feel uncomfortable, out of your depth, overwhelmed or scared then know that you have inadvertently stumbled or intentionally pitched yourself out of your loathsome yet comfortable rut. You are on a life altering adventure, moving towards the light of where you belong, your brilliant life, career and relationship. Lean in, level up and just keep going. You’ve got this. 🦋

Fear Is My Ally

I will never be fearless nor do I want to be. Fear is my ally. When fear creeps into my thoughts I know I’m on the right path. Fear alerts me that what I’m about to do is important for my soul’s calling, my personal evolution and empowerment When fear slithers into my consciousness it signals that it is time to suit up with courage and get moving in the direction of my heart’s desire. 🦋

Unstoppable

If you have the courage to believe in yourself unconditionally then you are unstoppable. 🦋

C.R.A.P.

Fear is temporary. Regret is forever. Faith is courage. 🦋

Slaying My Dreams

I was so overwhelmed and tired that I decided to throw in the towel. My inner Warrior threw it back at me and said ‘Wipe your tears girl, we’re almost there. We can do this!’ And so we did. 🦋

Never Done Before

What is the one thing you could do today, that you have never done before, that would exponentially increase your capacity to manifest your most coveted goal for 2019? Do that today! 🦋

Courage & Wisdom

Be Proud of You …

Should you not be proud of who you are, then it is time for you to gather up your strength, courage and dignity and begin to respect yourself for all that you are today.

It is time for you to feel genuine satisfaction in all that you have achieved, the qualities of your authentic self and how you bestow goodwill in your world.

2019 is a new year, a new beginning, decide what is worthy of your attention, effort and creativity and then commit to it fully, to the very moment it materializes.

Appreciate the journey, for you are the journey! 🦋

The Fragrance of Forgiveness …

I believe forgiveness is one of the highest forms of love and respect in any personal or professional relationship.

It takes courage to say ‘I’m sorry’ and an even more valiant heart to say ‘I forgive you’.

~ Judit 🦋

Do It Scared …

Because courage is a part of our DNA, fear is not a reason to not do something, it’s an excuse. Courage is ‘doing it’ scared!

A True Friend …

Wondering who your true friends are? They are the beautiful brave souls who walk alongside us during the best and worst of times, love our light and accept our darkness, celebrate our successes and joy and most importantly they are the warriors in our lives who have the courage to step up to confront us when we are royally fucking up and then they suit-up to help us slay the dragons as we are righting our wrong. Because a true friend loves us completely and always, they will never abandon us no matter how rough the journey and never ever enable our bullshit.

Divinely Anointed …

It is through the process of ‘struggling’ that we are compelled to tap into our potential, to breathe life into our dormant abilities and to do things we never thought possible. Struggling is an opportunity to exercise our courage, to become mentally and emotionally stronger, and most importantly to deepen our trust in ourselves. When a challenge emerges in our lives we need to own it, leap into the fray and move through it the best that we can. Turning away from or giving up in the midst of struggling is a natural response however, we are inherently entitled for more than what desertion could ever offer us, we are divinely anointed to be the victorious heroine or hero of our own story. 

To Do or Not To Do …

Drop your excuses and start to live your dreams with conviction and courage. The choice ‘to do or not to do’ is always yours.

Coulda, Woulda, Shoulda …

LS3D-WCS (2)

‘Coulda, Woulda, Shoulda’ … three of the saddest words uttered throughout the ages … 3 words that cause our greatest grief and anxiety … they are the socially unacceptable words of regret … the misgivings we have shoved down … the remorse we pretend doesn’t exist … we all have them … moments when we cautiously withdrew from someone or something because we were afraid of being rejected, of failing, looking foolish … they are the life defining moments we defensively, justifiably, self-righteously took a detour from and headed into a new direction … believing we are ‘now’ safe … yet as we journey on our new path we quietly carry our invisible baggage of shame, guilt and self-loathing, mumbling I ‘Coulda, Woulda, Shoulda’…

A recent survey by Allianz Life Insurance Company of North America found that roughly one-third (32%) of Americans regret major choices in their lives.

Happy Newsflash … it’s never late to dump our baggage … to embrace our innocence … our vulnerabilities … to acknowledge that we did our best with what we knew at the time … to exercise our courage …. to step up and smash our ‘Coulda, Woulda, Shoulda’… to either do the ‘ it’ … or … to forgive ourselves … for our past misguided decisions … at this juncture we can’t fool ourselves … we know what to do for ‘done’ to pop.

Reconciliation …

Toronto-20160626-01272 (1)

This morning as I am walking along the shores of Lake Ontario, I come across a quarried boulder with RECONCILATION etched on its one side. A fallen white tissue positioned just so in front of it. As I sit on this boulder … now my boulder … observing the hypnotizing ebb and flow of the lake … reconciliation begins to whisper … promising love, peace and joy … slowly shape-shifting into a bridge of hope … beckoning to cross over to grace … rumbling thoughts of reconciliation begin to roll through my mind … crushing illusions of fear … soothing anger … commanding to stand down … as I begin to loosen and relax … forgiveness purifies my guilt … our guilt … my eyes mist, tears flow … my heart breaks open … hmm … am I brave enough?  I continue on my walk … seeking courage.

A Life Well Lived …

LIVING SUCCESS 3D--SELF-BELIEF

Today is my Birthday …

I feel privileged that I have lived on this earthly plane for 55 years and I am looking forward to another 100 years or more .

As I journey forward, I reflect on my personal philosophy of believing in the power of my truth … My Authentic Self … A Self that is rooted in purpose, driven with passion and empowered to transform all things in life through imagination, vision and the courage to make it so.

To know this is a gift of a life well lived. I am blessed.

Acceptance! Not Submission.

LIVING SUCCESS 3D--ACCEPTANCE

Acceptance is courageously embracing all of life’s vicissitudes, to carry forward with faith in a new dream, birthed amidst the ashes of what could have been.

~ Judit e. Szabo

The Fatal Flaw that Derails Leaders …

LIVING SUCCESS 3D--EGO

An unregulated ego is the number one reason why leaders derail.

Ineffective leaders are usually unaware, that their ego driven behaviour is creating havoc amongst their people in their organization. Extraordinary leaders, are willing to take a hard honest look at themselves and their overall performance. They know their tenure and the success of their organization depends on their ability to open their eyes, to be honest with themselves and have the courage to transform their short comings.

W. Clement Stone

Fearless …

I learned that courage was not the absence of fear, but the triumph over it.

The brave man is not he who does not feel afraid, but he who conquers that fear.

~ Nelson Mandela

A Brave Heart

February 14th is a day that we honor those that we love with heartfelt greetings and gifts. It is a day of love and loving. How did Valentine’s Day become a part of our culture?  Experts believe Valentine’s Day originated with a Roman priest, Valentine, who secretly performed marriage ceremonies even though Emperor Claudius II forbade it. In the end, Valentine was apprehended and eventually executed on February 14, 269 A.D. Legend suggests that Valentine left a farewell note signed “From Your Valentine” for the jailer’s daughter, who had become his friend during his imprisonment. Pope Gelasius dedicated February 14 to honour Valentine’s valor.

Courage

St. Valentine, the patron saint of love, courageously lived and stood by what he deeply believed in. The word courage is derived from several Latin words— heart, always and creed. Etymologically, courage means, “to always stand by the creed of one’s heart.” Courage implicates taking a stand for what we believe in and transcending our fears—fears that may emerge when we decide to do the ‘right thing’ in the face of contrary or opposing opinions of others.  Oftentimes, when we think of courage,  we are unaware of  its necessity in living our everyday lives. Usually when we think of courage we reflect upon the grand sweeping acts of heroic men and women who have valiantly shaped our history. To acknowledge this natural inherent quality in our day to day lives, we give ourselves permission to live on a higher plane — being more authentic, speaking truthfully, manifesting dreams, loving  deeply, acting intuitively, making changes, expressing our creativity… When we choose to tap into our innate courage, we are rewarded with living our lives successfully with a greater sense of passion, integrity and dignity.

The Triumphant Heart …

A few ‘courageous’ questions to ponder…

  1. What dimension of my life, work or leadership would I like to transform?
  2. What is my highest vision for this dimension?
  3. What is stopping me from experiencing my highest vision?
  4. How would I feel if I tapped into my inherent courage and animated my highest vision?
  5. How would my life change if I dared to ‘do’ the dream?
  6. What are the first 3  steps that I can take right now to move towards living my highest vision.

 

Life shrinks or expands in proportion to one’s courage…
