Rebel Black http://rebelblack.com Tue, 05 Apr 2016 22:46:35 +0000 en-US hourly 1 https://wordpress.org/?v=4.4.10 You Are Enough http://rebelblack.com/you-are-enough/ Sun, 01 Mar 2015 22:24:36 +0000 http://rebelblack.com/?p=614 This is my first video blog or post since August last year – why?

Because I got immersed in other ‘doing’. I had some numerology done recently and I have lots of 7s apparently…representative of ‘doing’…makes sense to me! I have, during the course of my life, spend A LOT of time DOING…often to my own detriment…but my business partner and dear friend Phoebe has gently guided me to the art of BEING and the value it brings in my life.

So my disappearance from blogland/videodom was me giving myself permission to BE a little more and DO a little less.

But I am back – and OMG am I BACK!

Yesterday (Sunday) I set my intention for the coming weeks – that each morning, before 11am, I would do a video (because it brings me great joy and I REALLY missed dong it), I would practice meditation or do some Emotional Freedom Technique on areas of my life I need to clear and empower, I would write 1000 words on my book and I would develop a new piece of content for my business THE Rural Woman.

I felt amazing about all of that – it felt completely disciplined, in alignment, easy and incredibly satisfying.

So, feeling supported because I had blocked the time out in my calendar and my phone on silent and my list to hand..I sat down this morning to do my first video, since August 2014.

And I started with a topic that I have struggled with and am, through the deep personal work I do every day, really coming to grips with.

Worthiness – the feeling of being ENOUGH.

Wow. This has shown up in my language, behaviour and decisions time and time again…but no matter how hard I tried to change it, it was never enough…so I got brave and dug deeper and realised that my thinking/acting that there was never enough was reflecting a deep belief that I WASN’T ENOUGH.

Gugh…

But I have been working on it. Clearing the old limiting beliefs and replacing them with new ones and..it’s working.

Can you see the purple glow on the right side of my head…it’s a sign that it is!

I don’t know if you are into auras and the universe and past lives and other stuff – I know I am just starting on my journey to discovering all of this – but I saw the colours that appeared whilst I was making this video as a SIGN that I am on track – that I am living into my higher purpose and that with the message I was delivering, I am making progress.

If you are into auras you will know what vivid purples on the left hand side (right side on video) means – for those who don’t (which I didn’t), I looked it up and you can read more about it here 

This is incredibly powerful for me – and I hope it is for you too.

It’s a message to keep going – to keep digging, to keep supporting myself, to keep sharing the message, to keep shining for others so they in turn can shine…I feel more at peace and in purpose in my life than EVER and I want to cry tears of joy!

YOU ARE ENOUGH…

but it’s not enough just to say it – you have to believe it…and if you don’t believe it, then you have some work to do – if you want your life to be everything you desire. If you don’t know where to start – reach out…to someone, read a book, explore something you have been afraid to, ask yourself deep questions or reach out to me and I would be happy to help!

YOU ARE ENOUGH!

Features And Benefits Selling Is DEAD http://rebelblack.com/features-and-benefits-selling-is-dead/ Mon, 25 Aug 2014 03:57:24 +0000 http://rebelblack.com/?p=606 You know how they talk about the ‘good old days’….well, in selling, they are dead too!

The old way of doing business is almost over.

Consumers – our customers and clients, are more informed than they have ever been – the want MORE than features and benefits; they want to CONNECT with YOU and your product or service.

There is a whole series of videos to be done on this; but I just started with a simple step.

I refer to it as the ‘old’ Question and Answer model…

Check it out!

What’s Your Celebration? http://rebelblack.com/whats-your-celebration/ Tue, 19 Aug 2014 09:00:25 +0000 http://rebelblack.com/?p=603 It’s so easy to get caught up in ‘doing’ and we often forget to celebrate our achievements, breakthroughs and awesomeness along the way.

I am still not great at it, but, because I shifted my attention to it, I am better than I was.

I NEVER remember celebrating, on the inside, that I survived my first day of school, won ribbons in shows in cattle judging and parading, was made school captain, opened the doors for my first business, won awards, secured hundreds of thousands of dollars for the communities I live in, made big sales, rapidly grew businesses, etc, etc (36 years of achievement etc)…

There might have been outward acknowledgement of the achievement, but in my mind and heart I was already onto the next thing.

Even today…I made a MASSIVE inroad into the $30 million capital raising project I am volunteering on this year – and didn’t even take a SINGLE MOMENT to be like…FUCK YEA, that was awesome!!!!

WHAT…A…WASTE!!!

So.

In order that we don’t end up as bitter old hags who whinge about how NOBODY ever gave us any recognition or that our lives went by so fast and we didn’t appreciate what we had and celebrate our successes…

I want you to do this…

Go to youtube and find a song you LOVE…that makes you want to dance and sing and have an amazing time…and I want you to ‘favourite it’ and EVERY TIME YOU DO SOMETHING AWESOME take the 3 -4 mins (unless you choose a meatloaf song, then you will need longer!) to sing and dance and move and CELEBRATE YOU.

Paralysis By Perfection http://rebelblack.com/paralysis-by-perfection/ Wed, 13 Aug 2014 02:32:27 +0000 http://rebelblack.com/?p=599 Paralysis By Perfection.

It’s a real disease among people I reckon and it’s the killer of entreprenerial pursuit, fun, happiness, best life ever and brilliance!

What’s the point in starting something if you are going to kill it with your perfection and then starve the world of your greatness?

Luckily for me I don’t suffer – and this video proves it :)

Patience With Persistence – Veggie Patch Biz Wisdom http://rebelblack.com/patience-with-persistence-veggie-patch-biz-wisdom/ Tue, 05 Aug 2014 09:00:50 +0000 http://rebelblack.com/?p=593 I just LOVE spending time in my garden – it’s a great source of inspiration and earthing for me as well as physical energy.
Occasionally flashes of light come to me in this space – and I am reminded that in all of life, there are lessons that are universal.
Patience….everywhere I look there are lessons on patience.
Check out how a delicious surprise in my veggie patch reminded me of the incredible blessing of what I call ‘patience with persistence’!

Stop Beating Up On Yourself – See Your Strengths http://rebelblack.com/stop-beating-up-on-yourself-see-your-strengths/ Wed, 23 Jul 2014 09:00:49 +0000 http://rebelblack.com/?p=579 We are REALLY good at giving ourselves a hard time for all our weaknesses…all the things we don’t do well…all the things we suck at.
BUT in my early 20s I was given some GOLD advise from a mentor and I thought I would share it with you – because in my most DIRE times of self bashing, it has come in really handy.
It’s a strategy for thinking flipping!

Sometimes You Have To Get Help To Get What You Want! http://rebelblack.com/sometimes-you-have-to-get-help-to-get-what-you-want/ Thu, 03 Jul 2014 09:00:34 +0000 http://rebelblack.com/?p=566 There have been loads of times that I simply have given up because I didn’t know what I didn’t know and then, there have been a tonne more times when I have actively sought out the people who had the answers to what I didn’t know…paid them and then BOOM…got what I wanted!

There is no shame in not knowing what you don’t know – sometimes we seriously need to get over ourselves and be able to take a long hard look and say…

1. Do I really want this thing I am going after?

YES – continue to Q2

NO – go find out what you DO really want

2. Do I know everything I need to know in order to get it?

YES – WTF are you waiting for? Go do it!

NO – continue to Q3

3. Who do I know that DOES know what I don’t that is going to get me what I want and how can I get them involved?

4. Who do I know that will DO what I need done?

5. Who can I learn from (in a paid capacity) that has done or is doing what I need to do?

 

The hint is – all these things require INVESTMENT of some kind; whether it be time, money or energy…

That thing you REALLY want isn’t just going to fall out of the tree and land on your lap. You are going to HAVE TO INVEST!

Check out this great video…slash smoking ceremony…to learn the process I applied in creating a woodfired pizza oven – that gives great lessons in business (because, as you know, if you have been following me for a while, EVERYTHING in my life offers a lesson in business!)

Do You Own Who You Are? http://rebelblack.com/do-you-own-who-you-are/ Tue, 24 Jun 2014 04:50:46 +0000 http://rebelblack.com/?p=496 I used to compete in public speaking competitions back in high school; and I was pretty good. I took  home a few trophies in Australia and in NZ (where I lived for a few months on a Rotary Exchange)

Brag over.

BUT

I DIDN’T win with a speech that started with a pretty amazing introduction (check out the vid)….but it taught me a couple of really valuable lessons that I wanted to share with you!

Including – how to OWN who you are – and be proud!

WARNING: Witches Screams May Scare Children – But The Lessons Are Exciting!
