It’s kind of hard to believe that it’s already been a year (this week) since my trip to Malawi with The Hunger Project and 15 amazing women.
Learning firsthand the magic of mindset and what a difference it’s made as people become empowered to take charge of their own futures was a powerful lesson and made me think carefully about my own limiting beliefs. And although I’ve kicked a few to the curb, there’s always more to add to that list!
Meeting the amazing villagers who had all lived in abject poverty and yet were stepping up into leadership positions to empower their communities was incredible to be part of.
Transformational Leadership isn’t just about fearless leaders rocking social media but everyday people making a difference in the lives of others – they’re the true rockstars. And it certainly put the privilege I’d been born into, into stark relief.
I remember thinking that certain awards were ‘out of my league’ or that ‘I’d never be as amazing as that person’ or that ‘I couldn’t do what they’re doing!’ So I chose to question all of that and set some goals of my own.
I wanted to travel more, write a book, do more public speaking, stay involved with The Hunger Project and have an award winning financial planning practice, and what’s really cool… is in the last 12 months, I ticked all those boxes. It’s only now that the memories are coming up in my Facebook feed that I’ve realised how far I’ve come… and what I still have to go!
Time to set some more Big Hairy Audacious Goals and get kicking!
What are you planning to set up for yourself in 2018?
