Be your own Valentine.
This week, I have a present for you!
It is not a minivan!
But it will take you places.
My present to you is the Be Yours Challenge.
Subtitle: 7 Days to Freedom from Other People's Opinions.
Where did this come from?
I spent this week
talking to successful women:
women who run the world
who do great work
who get promotions
who - seemingly - thrive.
I was talking to them
because I was doing research for a new class I'm creating
for women who worry.
And in our conversations,
one theme stood out most.
These stellar, impressive, powerful, successful women
worry about What People Think.
(By the way: I do this a little, too.
I don't know many women who don't.
We come by it honestly,
raised as we are
to care constantly for others
Here's what this worrying does, though:
It keeps women from speaking up.
It keeps women up at night.
It keeps women from fully exercising
and from fully e n j o y i n g
their voices and power.
I made something to help with that.
My Be Yours Challenge
starting on Valentine's Day.
If this resonates,
Also please share with your badass friends
who second-guess themselves.
Share with your mom and sister
and your office wife.
Together, we'll spend 7 days
practicing self-coaching techniques
that help us to unhook from What They Think
and sail freely toward What We Want.
It will be fun
full of Whoa.
It's a week of emails
and small, daily ways
to move toward big, whole-life change.
This is how we bring feminism to life.
Let's do it!
