Personal Leadership
From Self-Sabotage to Sassy Sovereignty

The reality of self-sabotage

Do you know how remarkable you are? Remarkable enough to be recognized for your strength, value and realness by your peers, clients, future partner, YOU? We often forget this and make ourselves smaller than we are. We tell ourselves we’re not ready yet. Or we feel insecure after comparing ourselves to others. Know what I’m talking about?

When you want to attract something new in your life – a different audience, a new job, a loving partner – you might get confronted with a number of things that hold you back: from the ‘imposter syndrome’ (“I’m a fraud!”) to lacking self-confidence (“I am not good enough”) or simply lack of skills (“I don’t know how!”). And often we don’t even see our own shadows… or are afraid of them.

Rule as your own Sovereign

Whatever is holding you back, here’s an empowering truth for you: YOU are the Leader of your Life. Nobody else. And the best part is that you can reclaim that leadership and change the narrative. So my question to you now is: are you really showing up in a way that does you justice? Are you speaking up for your beliefs and desires? Are you authentically putting yourself out there and getting what you’re worth?

Let’s discover how you can become your own Sovereign, so you can live life on your own terms and positively serve the people around you. From the heart. Like a true King or Queen – regardless of your gender – you deserve to confidently claim your life and make a Meaningful Mark – big or small.

Tell me… What is Personal Leadership?

Personal Leadership is all about consciously stepping into personal power instead of victimhood. It means you decide to let go of old narratives. It means breaking the shackles that hold you back from expressing yourself unapologetically – in life, work and even love.

Personal leadership means doing the inner work and facing your shadows – even owning and celebrating them! – so you can then go out into the world and show yourself, in every way.

Unveiling YOU and speaking up for what you believe in, what you desire and what you’re worth. This means you answer 3 main questions:

1: Identity: Who are you really?
2: Expression: How will you show up and express yourself?
3: Message: What will you say and do to make a difference?

Inside Out: shadows and light

It’s not all love and light here. Yes, love is the underlying force of a true, heart-centered leader. But to truly reconnect to ALL of you, so you can step into your sovereignty, you need to do the work. You can’t step into the light without facing the shadows first. 

That means that you need to start with YOU, inside out. Peel off the layers, to uncover what’s hidden – all the mess, the nasty shit – and find the gold. This is shadow work at its finest. And then? Then you can show up even more raw, real and Rebeliciously – in a way that serves you and the world, and allows you to connect with your peeps more authentically.

“When we take lovingly charge of who we are, how we show up in this world, and what we do with our gifts – and we do this from the heart – we can all remember who we really are: love itself.”

Meet Michelle

Our Brand Rebel with a heart-felt cause

“We all have a part to play in this world. Most of us know this. Feel this. Desire this. But somehow, we may still not step into leadership and making it happen. The playfulness and courage that we had as kids is often shadowed by the scarring lessons we learned as we grew older. Nothing new so far; you may know this intellectually. But…

… to what extend are you aware of how this conditioning may still be guiding your daily choices? How have you given away your autonomy to fit in?

In our career we learn how to behave their kind of ‘professional’, and desire their kind of success. In our business, we parrot buzzwords such as trustworthiness, being an authority, while providing the best service. In our circle of friends, we can be a little crazy… as long as it’s not too far off.

Unconsciously you may feel it doesn’t sit with you. But to live beyond the status quo… o dear.

Hardly anyone stands out anymore. We’ve accepted mediocrity. It pains me to see this!!! If everyone has the same kind of flavors, how will we find and connect with the people we really resonate with? How can we truly love and thrive when we adjust and give up our sovereignty? Our perceived identity can fool us into a career and life that doesn’t do justice to who we are.

Time to change that. Time to reconnect with our hearts and take charge of who we want to be. And thank goodness… people are ready.

Listen… I’ve had my share of laying low too. Life hasn’t always been a picknick. I’d be honored to share my story with you.”

“Love is open. Love doesn’t want to protect itself, or create conditions, barriers or doors. Love simply wants to love and multiply. Love your clients, your colleagues, your work, your kids, your partner(s), everything you create. We need more loving energy!”
