"When We Get our Glow ON, we CAN Light UP our world!" ~ Bets

A Little Gentle Encouragement Goes A Long Way!

When I first started giving my GloWoman talks, I struggled with being called a “motivational speaker”. I felt it was a bit snake-oil salesmany, a bit fake - and I just wanted to share my experiences and what I’ve learned, to encourage others.

Although it works for some people, and admittedly it’s great for the sportsfield, but I’m not a huge fan of that “Ra-ra let’s GO!” war-like type of motivation, and I know it doesn’t work for everyone.

Personally, I’ve always found it a bit cringeworthy when the motivational speaker works the stage to get everyone revved up and they’re all shouting a rousing “Yes!” and waving their arms in the air. 

Of course it’s not the shouting “Yes!” that bothers me, it’s the whole group frenzy thing I’m not crazy about – the mob mentality, which is seldom kind, loving and compassionate and mostly a little bit aggro and centred around “winning” or “beating the other side”.

It’s all very well to work yourself up into a frenzy of positive energy in a group, but most of the time when you need to pull that energy out of yourself, you’re alone, feeling disconnected, a bit lost, stressed out, exhausted and insecure over some perceived crisis or deeply worrying circumstances - and the mob isn’t there to help you out of it!

Ultimately no matter how connected we are, there will always be times when we find ourselves all alone, facing ourselves and our challenges and feeling weak and wobbly. That’s when a little self-love and self-care, compassion, nurturing, gentle encouragement and quiet determination can go a long way.

Regardless of what is going on around us, it is always possible to choose love and loving thoughts over fear. And it is only we who can shift ourselves out of fear and into that loving place and sustain ourselves there. The mob can incite enthusiasm and energy to fuel us up for a brief moment in time, but opening up to the love in our own hearts, for ourselves and for the world, is what keeps us connected to the Good Stuff.

Being easy on ourselves; gently, gently encouraging ourselves, loving and nurturing ourselves through our challenges, while remembering to connect with our pleasure and joy along the way, will always uplift and heal us in heart and soul. And when we do, we bring more love and healing to the world. And so the world around us changes.

I know what it’s like to feel so alone and helpless that you don’t know where to turn. So I’ve learned to become the person I always needed in my life – and I’m here to support you with tools, tips and techniques to Rock your Happiness and connect to your Joy! 

And how do I know that it works? Well, I’m just like you! And I’m doing this everyday, for myself and for others. 😊 And now I'm comfortable with being called an "inspirational speaker" and I'm happy to inspire others to shine their light and Get their Glow ON!

❤️ The love in my own heart is where it starts.❤️

With Love and all the encouragement in the world,
