Was Lady Macbeth a cunning, evil, manipulative, murderous villain, or a fierce, smart, badass influencer who did what needed to be done? Now I’m not saying conspiring to murder your husband’s boss is OK! (it’s bad!) But what’s a woman to do when she has IDEAS, a POINT OF VIEW and a PLAN and absolutely no “right” to show up in her power? I’m calling you, beckoning you, down a dimly lit hallway, a gravelly, uneven path, where we will hold up Lady Macbeth as our cautionary tale of what happens when you step outside the socio-political roles that history has written for YOU, for US, as WOMEN. When we say - THIS IS WHAT I WANT, and then go after it. When we show up in our sovereignty as WOMEN. When we let our AMBITION show, even just a little. When we stand naked and visible in our POWER. We are going to LAY BARE all that history has given us on female agency, ambition and power by having juicy conversations with leading experts on women and gender studies, Medieval experts, and Shakespearean scholars about what life was actually like for women during Lady Macbeth’s time in history vs. the experience we live today. We’ll also talk with bad-ass women (like you!) who have laid their ambition out for all to see and have suffered the overt and subliminal consequences that are built into our social, corporate, and family structures. We’ve been conditioned for thousands of years as women to give up, deny and side-step our own agency. To not rock the boat and to never show up visibly in our own power. OR ELSE. This show is all about revealing our current reality by unearthing the past, all in an effort to create change at scale in our future, for women everywhere. The BIG questions we will be grappling with are, “How far have we, as women, REALLY come since the Middle Ages?” and “How can we normalize women’s ambition, help them activate their agency, and stand firmly and boldly in their power?”
Trade-offs as a Strategy
26:53So often we say, “yeah, but that’s the trade-off” like it’s BAD thing. Almost as if we’re not good enough to do ALL of the things, so we “drop the ball’ in advance. But what if the opposite were true? What if we could embrace tradeoffs in our life and our work as a strategy to move us forward in our goals AND to help us experience the kind of life we want to live day to day and hour by hour? Let’s look at a tool that can help us identify potential trade-offs we can declare and own, all in the name of growth.
Releasing Resistance to The Present Moment
13:46What if what you are doing in each moment is EXACTLY what you need to be doing? As we strive to become the best and juiciest versions of ourselves, we often convince ourselves that there’s always something different or better or MORE we ‘should’ be doing. Or different ways we should be BEING. Today we’re exploring a question that can help you release resistance to the incredible human you are being in each present moment.
