I want you to be honest with yourself here. As a woman in business are you on your stage or waiting in the wings?

You know exactly what I mean by this and you also know what is true for you at the moment.

This is about whether you’re playing small or full out, whether you’re the understudy or principal dancer, whether you’re hiding your light or allowing it to shine. Whether you’re feeling anxious or disconnected, or whether you feel fully alive and connected.

Because if you’re not ‘out there’ right now – what are you waiting for?

You do realise that You are the only person who can dance Your Dance?

That only you has the unique combination of skills, talents, experience and expertise to showcase your dance, to express your dance fully? You may think it’s no different to anyone else’s in your particular arena, but let me tell you it is. It is if you believe it is - if you believe in yourself, if you believe in your message, if you believe in the value you bring. If you believe you’re here to make a contribution to the world and to be the best You can possibly be.

Because I believe that’s the reason for being alive – for you to dance joyfully and to express yourself fully, for you to dance to the best of your ability, to dance as if your life depends on it – because it does! Being you and dancing your dance is THE way for you to really live – and if you’re not really living then you’re dying a little every day.

What kind of role model do you want to be to your children, to the next generation? Demonstrating that it’s ok to wait in the wings, to always be the understudy in your own life and in your own business? That it’s best to shy away from being the star?

What message does that send?

It tells the world that you’re not important. That it doesn’t matter that you don’t get to shine. That you becoming the star will make others feel bad or will stop them becoming a star too.

But that’s just erroneous thinking, because there are enough stages for everyone to have their own, to design and set their stage just the way they want. And there is enough time, space, attention and money for everyone to be the star on their own stage.

There is no need to be an understudy. You are meant to be the star - we’re all meant to be stars and shine on our stages, to connect to our audience, and to creatively express ourselves in such a way that we feel joyful, connected and fulfilled.

This is not a pipe dream people, and this is certainly not a dress rehearsal.

This is your time, your stage is waiting...

So will you step up, step onto your stage and step into your greatness, into your feminine power? Will you allow yourself to come out from the shadows and showcase your own fabulous dance?

The rewards are amazing. And they’re there for those of you with the courage to go for it. So I urge you to act on these success tips, to step out from the shadows and to dance centre stage.

You just don’t know who’s been waiting for you to show up!
