 Something I’ve learned on my journey is this: you’re not here to control external circumstances, you’re here to master your internal response to external conditions.
Of the internal realm (your thoughts, feelings, wants, desires, decisions and actions) you are sovereign.
#5: Teach what you need to learn and lead with integrity.
A course in miracles says that when it comes to your inspired calling in this lifetime: “you’ll teach what you need to learn because no one learns more than the teacher.”.
This, in my experience, is irrevocably true. I’ve also noticed three distinct responses to this statement:
1) The people who will judge someone for teachingsomethingtheyarenotperfectat(hello red egos, and inner mean girls & guys). These peoplearemostoftenjudgingtheirgiftsalsoand not fully expressing them in the world. So, not your business.
2) Those who will ignore this advice and continue to try and avoid cleaning up their mess by trying to clean up other people’s.
3) Those who know that you are called to teach in areas you both have learned a lot, and still have a lot to learn, so therefore, to be in integrity with what you’re showing: know that you must be willing to learn the lessons you’re being called to learn along the way and transmute them into wisdom to share with others.
#6: Focus on mastery, not what’s easy.

for including low self-esteem in women, and in terms of selling the ‘magic pill formulas.’
It’s easy to get it into your head that to compete with others in your niche that you must sell something quick, easy, and straightforward.
However, this has nothing to do with mastery of skills like coaching.
I wrote a social media post about this recently, on my view on 90-day life coaching certifications and less! (I found one online for 13 euros!! > facepalm moment).
Then you have these people setting up a Facebook page and calling themselves a qualified life coach and thinking that’s all it’sgettingabitoutofhand.

I’m more of a subscriber to Malcolm Gladwell’s 10,000-hour rule from his book “Outliers.”
Where it says, it takes 10,000 hours to become world-class at a skill. (Don’t use this to overwhelm yourself and not start; just ensure you’re climbing the right mountain before you begin!!).
