Make and Break Your OWN Glass Ceiling!

We hear a lot of chatter about women trying to break through the proverbial glass ceiling – that barrier in the corporation that women seem to have trouble shattering. I respect the women throughout history who have worked to break through the glass ceiling – whether they accomplished it or not – because I see the courage to try as the success, not the outcome. And it occurs to me that we all have glass ceilings in our lives and in our workplaces – where there exists beyond them, a new and improved version of ourselves – where there exists a new idea, a new book, a new creation, a new business – something outside our zone of safety and comfort. And if you’re like me, you are constantly intrigued at what waits on the other side. So as your motivational speaker, today I want to encourage you to not only find that glass ceiling in your life, but CREATE a glass ceiling in your life. Some of us run into an existing ceiling (Example: Nobody will publish your my new book) and we work to break through. But sometimes you need to create a ceiling – raise the game on yourself – create a new goal beyond the comfort zone, whether it’s small or large. Train yourself to constantly push yourself  – not because you have to, but because you want to. The more you do it, the more natural it will become. This, I believe, is one of the key ingredients to mastering your art and reaching your dreams. I never settle for good enough. In fact, I don’t even settle for brilliant. I just want to know if there’s more on the other side. So let’s go create a new glass ceiling today (only it won’t be glass because we can see it – but let’s not overthink this). And then let’s shatter it.

Are you ready? Me too! See you on the other side of your comfort zone!
