“My life is my message.” - Mahatma Gandhi

You have something amazing to contribute to the world.

As a leader, you can make a huge impact through your MESSAGE + VOICE.

When you fully step into this, you feel free to express and act upon your ideas (even when those ideas push against popular convention).

If you’re familiar with the chakras, your VOICE is aligned with your 5th chakra, which is located at your throat.

When your 5th chakra is balanced, you find your true voice, in word, thought and deed.

When you’re out of alignment here, watch out. You can only keep the facade going for so long.

Your body won’t let you lie to yourself or to the world forever.

I learned this the hard way in my early 20s when I was living a life I thought I was “supposed” to have:

Public relations agency executive.

New York City.

Traveling around the world on a project with the soccer star Pele for my client.

So busy that I’d practically shovel my lunch into my mouth while sitting at my desk, attempting to work while I ate. (Not a good idea.)

I had just met my now husband and started realizing that my career path wasn’t a fit for me anymore.

It was terrifying to have that THOUGHT.

But what was even more terrifying was the fact that during many mealtimes, I felt like I was choking on my food.

I distinctly remember panicking when the food would start going down my esophagus. It felt like the food was too big … like I literally had bitten off more than I could chew.

My mind would start racing and I would start pacing the room, not knowing what to do to stop these horrible feelings and thoughts.

It wasn’t until I transformed my life and started living in alignment that these panic attacks stopped happening.

On this episode of Get Gutsy, we dive deep on this topic. Come on in and receive.

Spiritual leadership is the way forward.

I want to talk to you today about what it is and why it’s crucial for our future and your success.

Spiritual leadership is knowing how you need to be showing up in the world, so that you can do your best work.

It’s about knowing how we’re wired so we can operate at our highest level and fulfill our greatest potential.

I learned this the hard way through many years of being lost, of not taking care of myself, of not taking care of my body, of following somebody else’s path that I thought was the way and realizing that it doesn’t work for me.

Spiritual leadership is realizing someone else’s benchmark of success is completely different than yours and being really mindful to live your life and serve your people YOUR WAY.

On this episode of Get Gutsy, we dive deep on this topic. Come on in and receive.

Excited to hear what you think of this one. Hit me up in my FB group (join at http://GutsyGalaxy.com) or on Instagram – @jennyfenig – and tell me!

You’ve got to really embrace FAITH + HUSTLE as you do your work in the world.

When I say doing your work in the world, that applies to you whether you’re a full-time entrepreneur, a corporate gal building your venture as a side hustle, a stay-at-home mom launching your venture when your kids are sleeping, or perhaps you work in the government sector.

There are so many ways to slice it. The point is you’re creating a body of work that you’re proud of.

Hustle looks like this: doing the work, doing the work, doing the work even when the results aren’t instantaneous, even when the results aren’t immediate. Getting up and doing the work. Being consistent and showing up.

And the faith piece is trusting that it’s all happening. It’s all happening for you. But it’s the inside job. You’ve got to have a belief in something greater than yourself.

On this episode of Get Gutsy, we dive deep on this topic. Come on in and receive.
