Shalena DIVA Broaster is a global business coach who helps new online coaches start their online coaching businesses. DIVA stands for discover, invest, value, and appreciate.
As we are entering a new year filled with dreams and aspirations, Shalena gives us some tools to help us realize our wildest dreams. She shares the obstacles she faced as she walked towards her dreams, which included being homeless and losing custody of her son.
Shalena literally is light and shares some amazing ideas about creating the life we want.
Here is the CliffsNotes version…
- Start by asking for what you want. You can’t manifest what you want without knowing and saying what it is.
- Sometimes you have to make a decision, and once you make a change, things start to happen. But you have to go with the information, the tools, and the information that you have at the time.
- Everyone wants to talk about those, those mountaintop moments. But Shalena tells people about what they’re going to experience in the valley, because we’re made in the valley.
- Choose a goal that is worthy of you. A goal that is worthy of you is one that stretches you. It stretches your way of thinking, it stretches your way of believing. It stretches your way of being.
- Know that you will have setbacks, but don’t let setbacks become a red light that stops you. Know that it just comes with the territory of goals that are worthy of you.
- There is no right way to do things … and no wrong way. You have to go back to trusting and listening to your inner self. There is no right way. There is your way.
- Remember that when you plant a seed, it takes time for it to grow before you can harvest it. Don’t get discouraged or try to reap right away.
