What do these ultra wealthy women all have in common? They each navigated their way to millions and billions by journaling, listening within and following their intuition as a life practice. They tapped in to a few of the divine success secrets that I share with my students in my Supernatural Success Course and coaching programs to help ordinary women manifest big abundance.
Do the same, and you’ll navigate your way to big riches.
Let’s take a closer look into their stories:
She’s the star of the hit home remodeling show, Fixer Upper on HGTV.
As a practice, she meditated. She prayed. She trusted her intuition on her way to success… now she and her husband, Chip, have multiple thriving businesses, multi millions of dollars and they are on their way to billions.
She remembers a time, in her meditation moments, where her Supernatural Success Partner spoke to her and said: ‘I have a calling for you. You’re going to have a platform one day. There’s going to come a time where I’m going to say ‘go’, and I’m going to need you to step out and go’.
“When I met my husband, I shared with him about all of the businesses that I wanted to start, but I never did anything about them. I just dreamed about them. He encouraged me to step out and make those dreams happen. And we started our first shop, Magnolia Gardens”, says Gaines.
She recounts God telling her: “If you trust me with your dreams, I will take Magnolia Gardens farther than you could’ve ever dreamed. So trust me”. She plugged in and listened to her Supernatural Success Partner.
A few years later she got a call from a network asking her to do a quick video of she and her family and what they do in business. That turned into a now hit HGTV home remodeling show.
“I can remember sitting under a tree, journaling and meditating on what this next year would look like for me, for my family and for our business. I felt God saying – ‘It’s time’. I said ‘time for what?’ He said – ‘…time to reopen your store’. I said ‘I don’t think I can do that’. He said: ‘Trust me’. So I did. What happened next is our sales, our foot-traffic, our media attention and the community outpouring of love and support were all bigger than anything I could’ve ever imagined”.
Years ago, Sarah Blakely was a struggling 27-year old looking for what was next in her life. She wanted to get out of her door to door sales job selling fax machines. In her own words: “Ever since I can remember, I’ve always felt very compelled to help women and to see every woman on this planet treated equally. But I wasn’t sure how to sort of, arrive at that place of purpose”.
So she got quiet in her meditation time and asked her Supernatural Success Partner- “What should I develop? What should I do next? What product should I put in the market?”
He gave her Spanx and now she’s a billionaire. “…And I’ve never even taken a business class in my life”, says Blakely.
“I specifically wrote down in my journal that I wanted to invent something that I could sell to millions of people and I wanted it to be something that made people feel good. And one day, out of a frustrated moment, I couldn’t figure out what to wear under a pair of pants, and like most women, I cut the feet out of a pair of pantyhose and wore them under my pants and they worked well…
…But they kept rolling up all evening. And then it hit me—I have to figure out how to make these stop comfortably beneath the knee, stop rolling up, and create a whole new type of undergarment for women that was in-between traditional underwear and the heavy duty shapers girdles…
…I remember saying: ‘I’m looking for a sign’. And then I was watching Oprah, where she was saying, she cut out the bottoms of her pantyhose – and said: ‘That’s it. That’s my sign’”.
She tuned into her intuition, worked her way in to meet with the buyer from Neiman Marcus and a year later, she appeared as a guest on the Oprah Winfrey Show to tell the story, and is now a billionaire.
In her own words: “So looking back, I would say—Trust your gut. Don’t be afraid of what you don’t know. Get help. Keep going. Be grateful”.
JANICE BRYANT HOWROYD
Janice Bryant Howroyd is founder and chief executive officer of The ActOne Group, the largest privately held, minority-woman-owned personnel company founded in the U.S. As a trailblazer, she is the first Black woman in America to build and run a multi-billion dollar company with a $900 loan from her mother.
She had a desire to employ women, but with no real capital or business experience she knew that she would have to trust her gut, hustle, act fast and innovate wherever resources were lacking.
Now she has one of the largest staffing firms in the world and operates in 19-countries.
In her own words—“You have to spend some time alone, asking the right questions and listen within for the right answers. Because here’s the thing— Business growth comes in phases. And the growth happens as quick as you are able to up level your mindset. People don’t quickly get that. And no matter who SIGNS your check, YOU write it. You do it by betting on yourself, being humble enough to ask for and receive the help when you need it, and take action quickly. The rest will fall into place”.
So what do each of these women have in common?
1. They practiced presence and stillness.
Meditation time really is ‘conquering’ time. It’s what keeps high achievers grounded, grateful, and prepared for great gains.
When you meditate on your goals, your vision and your ideal outcome, expect a shift in your thinking. Try not to focus on problems, stress or the things that make you anxious. Instead, only focus on the outcome that you want to attract. Start thinking about big increase and big, exciting things happening for you right now. What you focus on tends to expand in your life. When you start focusing on feeling happy and successful then that is what you will attract more of.
2. They activated their intuitive inner-guidance.
Try getting up early in the morning, finding a sweet spot to retreat to and actually sit and meditate. You will gain clarity around your day, your next steps and tap into your intuition. Write down whatever ideas, hunches and thoughts come to you. Then start following your gut feelings, and go with your hunches. Simply put—listen to your gut. Listen within…and if it feels right, move forward.
3. They practiced visualization.
Whatever your goal, you have to see it and believe it before you manifest it. Spend time in the morning meditating on how you want the outcome to be. Dream big, ponder questions and write down the answers that come during your meditation time.
Visualize your desired end and then work backward to create it. Make it real: See it, feel it, and emulate it in your thoughts. This simply means that you can experience your ultimate success RIGHT NOW just by closing your eyes and visualizing it. It’s time you harness that power and put it to work for you!
4. They all kept a journal.
What’s written is real. Whenever I’ve wanted to break barriers, come up with the next big idea or achieve the seemingly impossible, my Success Journal has always been my go-to manifestation tool. Oftentimes throughout my day, I’ll write a question in my journal (Who do I need to connect with to complete xyz project? What is the final step to completing xyz goal?). Then I’ll begin free flow scripting possible answers and watch the solutions begin to unfold for me.
The same will happen for you when you begin to script questions and write what you hear. Your reality can unfold exactly as you see it and script it.
5. They took fast action on what they heard.
Instead of listening to the critics or defending their ideas. They were committed to pursuing their ideas. You must learn to act on the guidance you receive. When you act on your intuitive ideas, you in turn will grow stronger and stronger. Once when I was in the Oprah contest for her TV Show Host, I was asking God to show me what to do. As we neared the end of the contest, I had an intuitive thought to tweet and use social media more to talk about the contest. It worked and I came in 3rd place.
How to recognize when your intuition is speaking:
- Sometimes you hear an inner voice.
- Sometimes you just FEEL funny about something and can’t explain it.
- If something is wrong, your inner peace is disrupted.
- If something is right you feel peaceful, at ease.
These are the things they did. And they each became a big hit.
SO THIS WEEK: Set aside ten to twenty minutes each day to meditate. Experts usually recommend meditating in the morning, soon after you wake up. I’ve done this for many years and I wouldn’t start my day any other way! Start your day expecting success, inspired ideas and productivity. If you’ve never done this before, it might seem silly, but if you want your business to take off, meditation is the secret key—it will become your daily life-changing moment! Insight comes early. Capitalize on your mornings to do uninterrupted work, strategize and create products while everyone is sleeping. If you first sit quietly in the morning and meditate, and then listen within, you will discover brilliant ideas that are ready to burst out of you.
If you’re ready to truly activate increase, attract prosperity, join me in my Supernatural Success Course.
If you’ve ever given up on a dream or goal because you just didn’t believe it could really happen…this is the class for you. Not only will you see the power in setting your intention, but you’ll see the vision in accomplishing your heart’s desire. You will learn how to manifest what you want–anytime you want!
