Ingredients Are Not Enough.

We’ve got every ingredient we need inside us, right now.
Every element for greatness available.
Ready to go.
Ready to be what we require it to be.

On this, I am adamant.

Yet, we believe we are stuck.
What do you do when you feel this? Do you give up?
Do you say to yourself, “I must not have what it takes.”?

This, dear one, is a lie.

You, without a doubt, have all the ingredients for becoming exactly who you choose to be.
To create in your world exactly what you choose to create.

You are the perfect spaghetti sauce waiting to happen.

You’ve got the freshness of tomatoes.
The richness of butter.
The spice of pepper.
The strength of oregano.
The zing of garlic.
The bite of onion.
The perseverance of salt.

So what gives?

What gives is we’re missing two crucial things that have nothing to do with ingredients.

We need a suitable pot.
We need conscientious heat.

We don’t get anywhere if we’re in an environment that can’t take our ingredients and hold them well.
We are not getting our special sauce to come together without some well planned and intentional heat.

So instead of throwing ourselves into the garbage disposal with this myth that we don’t have what it takes, why don’t we take a minute to look at what our environment is like? Take a moment to consider our grit and willingness to be uncomfortable?

Do you want to finally make that special sauce?
Then take all those ingredients inside you and try something new: put them in the right environment and put on a little heat.

Get contained and put on the pressure. Embrace boundaries and discomfort.

Get outta the salad bowl and into the dutch oven.

After we’ve done this, then we can tell if we don’t have the right ingredients.

All My BeastyBoss,

Ending relationships – No need to cover your bases

It’s all too common for people, especially women and other underrepresented communities of business owners, to be told to “exhaust every last solution before you throw in the towel” and have this be framed this as “being responsible.” Good advice or bad? Read on…
