“You Already Know You’re Good Enough & Doggone It…”

…that’s “People Like You” in case your bedtime conflicted with the SNL show, or you didn’t have a TV in the early ’90s to be inspired by iconic Stuart Smiley.

Missing from this headline is “Smart Enough”—and most leaders definitely know or at least think they are that. GWBW wants to inspire more to lead by becoming brighter than smarter—that’s by leading with authentic power. And the fact is whether you’re a corporate leader by title, default, wannabe—or leader of your home—true Leaders are expansion- and growth-oriented people.

Authentic power? Let’s courageously push forward with our quest for authentic empowerment in the home, school and workplace to be the brighter leaders we are all meant to get back to. The ease and grace of leading effortlessly with joy and true vision, is born in us all. This blog will explore ways to return to that natural state of effortlessness—the way to living and leading with true meaning.

Because, doggone it!, this modern world needs us all to reconnect and align with our truest selves.

Freedom Cry: The RE-Abolitionist Movement

If you know nothing else about your GoodWitch/ BadWitch, you know that I’m all about personal FREEDOM for all. I coach it for personal and business living, I try my best to maintain it in every sphere of my life. But the fact is…

We are NOT all free! So all the more, Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. Day. While some people make it a tradition to jump on a Freedom Train to celebrate, this also made it the perfect day to bring to light a topic I have known about only on its periphery for the past five years in every state in America (and around the world): Human Slavery Trafficking. While most of us associate it with sexual slavery trade, the numbers show that only accounts for about 20% of the slavery occurring, oftentimes, right under our very noses. Domestic slavery still exists! It’s 2012, our culture is not used to seeing or thinking about slavery as a current practice. 

Dr. David Bastone, PhD, professor at USF, took a year sabbatical to travel and research this modern day event, and figure out ways people can come to action. He calls it the Re-Abolitionist Movement. His site NotForSaleCampaign.org is chockful of eye-popping info, and actionable options. The social site SlaveryMap.org notes real sightings and case notations of documented slavery cases possibly in your neighborhood and all across these free United States.

No one is free until we all are.  —Simone

Sail Along…

Healthiest and expansive 2012! It’s all about raising your vibration, babies!

2012—Mayan hype aside—promises to be the hinge year in this 9-year, likely evolutionary, cycle of change even the biggest deniers among us are experiencing. Are you ready?

I’m no doomsayer. Just sayin’: think of yourself all warmed up and stretched out over the last three years, for the rest of this marathon of transitions. These cosmic sign posts urging us all to grow and expand. And that is what 2011’s “losses” and transitions showed me professionally but mostly, personally, that it’s not the hard changes that we resist as as we’ve been taught to dread or outright fear, it’s the long transitions in between, where we have to do all the work that tests the mettle of us mere mortals. But really it’s not even the transitions that worry us, it’s how we react as indicated by where we focus our attention. Remaining focused on what doesn’t work or how things used to be can be reframed with where you want to be and feeling a true gratitude for what does work in our lives. …and, I’m no Pollyanna, either! Where attention goes, energy flows—raise your vibration, babies.

So, lovlies and gents, set or right your course, show up and do the work every day, no need to fight it, then you can…raise your sail (aka vibration) and let the wind and currents carry and flow you where you are meant to be…

If there was ever a time for your Inner Optimist to make a jail break, think of our times as a youthful-revealing exfoliation!  —Simone

P.S. Yes, one of my transitions included amicably, with celebration and mutual respect, “breaking up” with Lakenda (nee GoodWitch) this year. Our separate but parallel business paths will surely serve us both best. “GoodWitchBadWitch” was a name I (branding maven) envisioned as “encompassing both” (I’m also embracer of life’s paradoxes)—I’ve just come full circle. It’s all good. Will update you with her new site and info when she’s ready. Peace.

Royal Witches: One Did It One’s Way

I say, jolly good party at ole Buckingham Palace last night (thanks for the invies, Wills & Kate)! …Alas, I’m afraid that party blur left me looking for the keys to the pumpkin this afternoon, as your lovely witches were sporting royal tea bags on their eyes earlier on this fine commoner Friday.

Actually, we’re working dang hard to integrate all our recent fabu personal and professional changes, including actively putting together a custom de-stress program for medically-based clients. Be back soon to fire up our blog machine in earnest…and a lot more. Now, pardon me while I move the pumpkin, it’s street cleaning today. Thanks for your support and, ta ta for now! — Simone

Teaching Sharing: Lesson Plan

Share and share alike. In and out of the home, real schooling for today…and their tomorrows.  — BadWitch

Readers Are Spellbound & Perplexed…

Dear GWBW — Our daughter and son are 2.5 years apart. The older is 6 and in first grade where she’s now being influenced by some of her friends in ways we’re not so excited about like never before. How do we help both our kids learn how to share? Alpha Influentials

Dear Alpha Influentials,

Welcome to the world of school age children. Yes, your little one is growing up and stepping out into the big wide world and unfortunately, not everyone raises children with the same standards. Your children will be influenced by classmates, television, movies, and even you and your friends in ways you least expect.

Your job is to give your children a stable foundation they can springboard off refer to. Sharing is a classic. Most kids do not share without training. As they see new way (read: excuses) to not share, they will try to work these new ideas for themselves. The best way to combat that is to be vigilant in your correction. The more your child realizes that not sharing, maybe loses them the toy all together, the less they will try the new ideas. If the outcome does not work, your child will learn  sharing brings more joy than not sharing.

Remember to be vigilant and loving. Remind them that you love them no matter what, but you do not like the behavior being displayed. It’s important that kids know they are loved unconditionally, especially when they are facing discipline and correction. It doesn’t mean they get off light. Discipline and correction are necessary to raise strong, self-assured, good people from childhood to adulthood. Kids with no boundaries rebel more and more to get attention.

You can not really stop outside influences. You can only make your influence more compelling through your own actions (show sharing, donations and generosity in your own behavior), as well as correcting when less than ideal new ideas come into your home.

Good luck!

Dear Alpha Influentials,

Hey, ‘rents, teaching sharing is both instructional and influential (how and what you value) as it is associative (a “chair” = “for sitting”). Having said that, as you teach your kids to share, you are sharing your own knowledge base. This is how humans develop. Sharing is beyond “things” and goes straight to the heart of your emotions, what you know, and how you believe the world “is.” What you teach about sharing is important. No doubt. Balancing that with good parental guidance is key, and learning how to share is forever (her future employers thank you). And then, you have to let go and trust your own lessons.

Be aware of your daughter’s influences: from media exposure to close friends (du jour) she spends a lot of time with (especially out of the classroom). Try to get to know their parents. Set a standard both your kids can understand and follow, such as you must speak with a new friend’s parent(s) before spending time at their house, you must meet new friends, etc. Let your kids see your concern around the sharing issue/lesson by exemplifying sharing within your family. Utlimately, you can talk until you’re blue in the face, but kids copy what they see you do, not what you say.

No foolin’ about sharing today or tomorrow,

BadWitch
