Think Different . . . The Set Up . . . As a woman, are you looking for something . . . but maybe not sure what you are looking for? Are you interested in considering to “Think Differently?” What if . . . someone challenged you in a way that maybe you’ve never considered? What if being challenged really stretched you . . . maybe to the point of feeling like it hurt? How would you respond?

Personality & Frequency What does our personality and our frequency have to do with learning to think differently? If something you believed to be true . . . was not true . . . would you want to know it? How do we as women learn to see things from a different perspective, from a different personality / frequency? What are our strengths and weaknesses for each of the personalities / frequencies?

Why Do I Do All The Work? Have you ever felt, as a women, that you have to do all the work and wondered why those around you weren’t helping? Hmmm . . . this topic may hurt a little . . . as maybe it has to do with our personality / way of thinking? Maybe if we learned to come at things from a different frequency, maybe we do have far more control over our lives than we think we do?

Q&A and Discussion4. What Women Don’t Know About Women What do women not know about women AND other women won’t tell them AND men won’t either? 🙂 As a women . . . how well do you think you know yourself and other women? If a man were to share something that he felt women didn’t know about women, what would be your response? 🙂 It’s interesting today as the story is told about three young women / mothers and how when they were 10 years old or younger where they discovered something about men that most adult don’t know. Brianne at the age of 10 years old made a list in her head about what her 14 year old brother didn’t like about girls and then set out to NOT be that type of a girl. Brianne’s husband now benefits from that type of thinking as to all the men that Brianne now works with through her own business. Elise, at the age of 8 years old got upset on the inside at her dad having all types of drama and being defensive and made a decision to NOT be like her dad. GingerAnne who is 29 years old, twin newborn girls, and a 3 and 5 year old son learn, in spite of her more passive personality to be driven from her grandmother when she was 8 or 9 years old and now men love working with GingerAnne and her three companies.

5. Project of Leverage, the Art of Positive Motivation and Manipulation  How does this topic apply to single moms? What do single moms not know?

There are many ways that men take advantage of single women, and this brings great harm to the mom, and to her children.  How do single moms become prey?
What state of mind is a single woman in when she is not taken care of properly. . . and she doesn’t seem to listen to advice of peers or friends? If this man has children of his own who he doesn’t care for, what is the rationale that he will take care of someone else’s children?
Our hearts go out to single moms, and we hurt for them when they see the situation repeated. The best thing we can do is to be available for support. . . even practical help with childcare so the single mom can go out with her friends, and emotional support so the mom can be lifted up. They need to know that people care about them, and that they can learn to think differently about their situation.

Good & Bad Drama . . . Wow, is there such a thing as good drama? What’s most interesting is that often those how say they hate drama actually create a ton of drama themselves and don’t seem to know it . . . or . . . they act innocent? Most men won’t touch this topic with a ten foot pole so it’s interesting to get a man’s perspective. Most interesting to look at how each personality can create drama in their own way. How do we know the difference between good and bad drama? How can we as Awesome Women really be awesome and create good drama and get rid of the bad drama that hurts and tears people down?

7. Could We Be SELFISHLY Doing things for Others? In conversation, are we the center of the universe…or do we include others? What are our motives when we feel we are “indispensable” — are we really training our children to take on responsibility, or, so that we feel like we are great moms, are we hanging on to tasks we should let go? How many tasks do I do for others, that I really am doing for me…to feel good, to not lose control, to have it done my way? Join us for the Q& A to discuss * Why do we always have to “belong” to a group/ be recognized for our cause/ demand equality for our perspective? * When I give of myself, and others don’t recognize or thank me, will I get angry? What does that say about my motives? * How do we teach others to not need us…because we won’t be here for them forever?

When couples are newlyweds, they easily meet each other’s needs and expectations — they want to give their best to the relationship, and they both are content. What happens when the honeymoon is over? When does our selfishness need to turn into selflessness? How does one make the change? Who is in my life that I can share these videos with who can benefit? How would sharing these with others ultimately help me?

9. If I Am Totally Honest, Will I Still Be Able to Keep my Friends? Building and maintaining healthy relationships is much like building and maintaining a healthy body…it doesn’t happen on its own, and it takes work, and doing things that aren’t fun. Did you ever need to tell someone the truth, but you were afraid because you feared it may harm the relationship? Do you ever “skirt” a real problem because you don’t want to lose a friend? There are tips to sharing heart-felt concerns with a friend: ** make sure it’s for their benefit, not yours **prepare them by using the “Grandpa Boersma” Principle **be humble **learn to grow relationships beyond the superficial Get into the subject in the first 7 minutes, and stay for the Q & A.

Or, when we send them the recording, how do we make sure that they listen to it? When we talk about subjects NEW to our thinking…some would call them controversial…is it a conscious decision woman make to not return? Are some women so set in their thinking that they cannot discuss their belief systems, or grow when needed? The most likely women who will find value in our conversations are “Out of The Box Thinkers”…who like to be challenged, who want to know when their thinking needs to change…who see value in growing, even through the busy times in our lives.

11. The Ratchet Principle – How can we prevent the cycle of slipping back into bad habits/ destructive feelings/ lazy thinking? Do you see that you’ve taken two steps forward, and then, not one, but two or three steps back? Why do things go well for a while, and then we slip back? When we gain momentum, things go well for awhile . . . and we get comfortable. The Ratchet Principle is a two-step process to help us KEEP the ground we have gained through hard work, motivation, and accountability, and VAPORIZE those things that pull us backwards. What are we missing? What is the benefit to myself and others to FIX this issue at the CORE level? How can we improve, and then hold our ground? What SYSTEM is there to make sure that we don’t fall back? Listen as women share their hearts and seek to not give up…

A massive number of books and lectures … prescriptions and oils …sick days and missed events … depression sucks the life out of women who, most of the time, can just push through and get by.

What is the best way to think and do when working with men? Are the challenges because of gender, personality, value systems…or something else? Listen as Brianne tells her experience as a 10-year-old who wanted to impress her older brother. He didn’t like the common characteristics of girls — drama, silliness, etc. — and Brianne decided that she would do all she could to stay away from those actions which may not please her brother. Hear how “thinking like a man” has given her an “edge” in her business, and she finds that she enjoys working with men, and they prefer her, many times, to other women. Learn how to “be yourself”, but think like a man — complete projects with ease — and how to “put away” some common female characteristics that do not serve women, or the men in their lives, very well in business or life.

14. How Do Our Mothers and Mothers-in-Laws impact our life as adults? Our special guest, Rose, asked a great question…”Do parents receive more sympathy from their kids, or their kids-in-laws? Do our kids not see the changes that we go through as we age…but our in-laws see it sooner?”

How is their advice different? They have a different way of seeing things, or a different approach…they can give more of a suggestion, rather than a push. They see how we deal with situations and discipline, and can help us see things we cannot. We want to remember them as young, and sometimes forget that they need to slow down, and may not always be able to come to our rescue. When we become the care-giver to our parents, are we able to keep them active physically and mentally? As moms and moms-in-laws, do we do unto others? How are we passing on these tips to others?

20. No Longer a Victim

What happens to someone suffering ABUSE? Has something happened to you that was not your choice…not your fault…but you are hurting from the consequences?
Through a poor choice, are you in a bad situation…one that you would not chose again…one that you would not chose for anyone?
Do you find yourself repeating the cycle that continues the ABUSE to you, or to others?
Pastor James McDonald shares how we can become victims, and gives steps to take. NO LONGER allow victimization to define us…continue to haunt us…keep us from finding healing,
Listen to the recording of his sermon, while it is available.  Here are some main points:
This acronym describes ABUSE. Are you experiencing any of these?
A: Accelerating Hate
B: Berated as Worthless
U: Unjust Condemnation
S: Shame and Publication
E: Enduring Condition

23. How Can I Be a Strong, Independent Woman, and also NOT a “B-word”?

When someone feels that our strength, confidence, or expectations deserve a “calling out”, they may try to get our attention in the most shocking way…

How do we know when we are being manipulated to stop us from moving others? How do we show that our strength is an asset to our family and our business? How should we respond? Introspectively check our motives?
Take this SURVEY to see if your personality makes it “easier” for you to be a “B-word”…
Look at yourself in the mirror. Are you really a “B”? Check your attitude. What percentage of what you are hearing could be the Truth ?

Do you give Affirmations — “you can do it”, “good job”, and “way to go, champ!” with little thought of possible long-term consequences? How long should someone NEED to be affirmed, before she believes for herself that “she is doing great” or “you made the right choice”? When does the NEED for AFFIRMATION mature into a FEELING of SELF-CONFIDENCE . . .a personal motivation and discipline for success? What if someone is “hooked” on affirmation, and cannot function on her own?

25. Where Have All the MEN Gone?

Heather Wilhelm wrote  a recent newspaper article In the NATIONAL REVIEW on the attack on boys and manhood. She says boys are beat down, not given attention, because they are boys…while girls are lifted up because they are girls.  

Mark Boersma has been an executive coach for 30+ years. He has seen numerous ADHD/ADD boys who have been prescribed Ritalin …grow to men. Reports are now that boys’ testosterone levels are down 50 % from the past.  What is that doing to our boys? How is that affecting our men?
What does being a white male over 50 have to do with being lazy?
Having discipline? Keeping their word? 
Is it different for others? 
How can men realize that they NEED to work HARDER NOW than they ever did in the past?
Why do white males not “march on Washington”? Because they are working. They didn’t ask their boss if they could take the day off — they just want to produce. They are not lazy.  They don’t want to make waves…they don’t want the drama. 
Q&A 
Who are protecting our boys? 
Who is standing up for the men?
Do MEN openly SEEK to be told they are AWESOME? 
How does performance in the workplace breed self-confidence and discipline…less drama and excuses… ?
WOMEN: 
What is our part in all this? 
What does Our Life Vision have to do with anything?
How do we bring back the “manliness” in our boys?  In our men?
SEE the future before it happens. 
A victim doesn’t want to see it; it’s too painful.

26. Positive and Negative FRUSTRATION   
frus·tra·tion
frəˈstrāSH(ə)n/     noun  – the feeling of being upset or annoyed, especially because of inability to change or achieve something.

 

Positive FRUSTRATION pushes us to do better, try harder, reach higher…it is one catalyst for growth and improvement. Have you seen a child learning to walk? It is a challenge, but with encouragement, our children walk.
 
Negative FRUSTRATION pulls us down, makes us feel “stuck”, tempts us to give up. Have you seen a child study something, and they just don’t “get it”? Do you suffer from repeated failure or weakness?
 
The FEELING of FRUSTRATION can be harnessed to encourage us through the tough times…through the mistakes…reminding us to focus, try again, don’t quit. Positive FRUSTRATION tells us to embrace the pain and accept that we are growing. 
 
A “dimensional jump” is a difficult move to make, both personally and in our business.  How does FRUSTRATION propel us through to the other side? See here how your personality pushes or pulls you towards success.

28. The topic of HELP verses HEALING…How are they different?

We hear, “I want to HELP you.” What does that mean? Is it a permanent fix, or temporary?

What does “HEALING” feel like or look like to someone? Is it possible to solve pain at the core?
The Atomic Ball Principle shows how pain or hurt creates energy. When that energy is directed towards doing good, or choosing positive actions, or focusing on the future, how can we get on the road to HEALING?
What does being a victim have to do with “HELPING” or “HEALING”?
How do we HEAL from our own Pain?
Continue with the Q & A…
What happens when someone doesn’t choose to be HEALED? What can we learn from taking ownership of our pain to HEAL?
Could there be benefit to the pain? On the other side of the pain — can we see how being “thankful” for the experience can be a positive thing?  Not thankful for the bad, but thankful for the positive we can make from the bad…
What is the connection between emotional and physical pain in finding HEALING?  Are there ways to HEAL at the CORE without medication?

29. Answer: You should make LIFE experiences “spill over” into BUSINESS… 

QUESTION: When we find ourselves in a tough situation, how do we make the situation livable so that those around us can survive — so there will be the least amount of damage? ANSWER: take a lesson from LIFE !

Realize that experiences in life with babies, children, teens, a husband, friends…all of these experiences should be applied to business —  OUTSIDE the realm of life at home. Remember the contractions of labor and delivery? They came harder and faster…would more DRAMA added to the situation have helped the process? No.  So, adding DRAMA in the workplace, or to relationships, or to challenging situations probably won’t work either.
Imagine that you have to catch a plane in 2 minutes…you will do everything to make sure you are not late. Think about that focus…what if we applied daily life experiences to BUSINESS…and business experiences to LIFE !  We could transform all areas of our lives!
How can I transfer this knowledge to the business world? How do I help others to make connections with their learning?
Have perspective in situations…make sure we think about things with an open mind. Look at challenges from a global perspective…learn to apply lessons of life to EVERY area of life — home, work, business, spiritual, physical, … and more !
How can we acquire the GIFT to apply home lessons to business, and apply life lessons to friends, and apply childhood lessons to adulthood?  Once we can see the need, how do we capture the energy and motivation to move that GIFT forward to others?
Join the Group Discussion to talk about meeting business deadlines, dealing with grudges, getting through the every-day challenges, selfishness, and more!
And, next week’s focus: “How do we accomplish more at events WITH intention, rather than WITHOUT intention?”

30. How Do We Accomplish More at events WITH intention, rather than WITHOUT intention?

From Business meetings to Birthday Parties…What is the Biggest Challenge of Women to get to “C Level” people? Why is it harder for women to connect?
It seems that the environment that men and women DO Business is different.
While women expect business attire and a round table of shared ideas,
men DO Business on the golf course, at boxing matches, and sporting arenas.
Why don’t women socialize in these networks? Because women are usually home with the kids, or not expected to attend.
So, women must learn to DO business in every environment, and with all their networks.
Women can have INTENTION to move forward at every event.
How can women LEVERAGE all social, religious, and personal events?
What are the steps to making money in business?
First, find your WiiFM – “What’s in it For Me”, your Driving Force.
Set some monthly / weekly / daily goals.
Build a system to create your income.
JOIN FOR the QUESTION and ANSWER time…
I don’t want to be “that person” who is always trying to “sell” something to my friends. How can I avoid that?
Where do I find resources to give away for free? Check out these Free Resources –   and search on “Cool Free Stuff”.
What do I do if people would rather whine than change? Some just go to events to hang out, relax.
Write a white paper that can subtly help people in their process…tell at the end what I can offer them that may cost money.
Ask people what their Biggest Challenge is for the next week’s call. Offer to feature their BC on the call, and send them the recording.

31. How do Moms deal with Whiny BOYS?  How about Whiny MEN?

When boys whine, what is an effective strategy to eliminate it?  What does it teach a BOY when he “gets his way” after whining?
Have you heard a MAN whine? “I’m so busy…I’m not sure what to do…No one has time to help me…” What is a MAN going to do when someone steps in and saves the day? What does it teach the MAN?
Could there be a link between WHINING and not being successful in business? With entrepreneurs, we have learned that when we maintain focus and discipline, there is no time for whining. Why waste the effort? Why add the drama?
Listen to personal stories in the Discussion…
What is the best way to “call out” the BOYS in our life who whine?
Should we send this recording to the MEN in our life who whine?
Listen for 10 minutes to hear “5 Time Management Freedom Fighters” to head off challenges that might tempt you to whine yourself…
What if a man or woman doesn’t think they are whining?
What does it mean if they get angry or upset?
Share this call with one woman before next week who you think could benefit!

32. How Do I Deal with Fear when it Takes over My Whole Mind and Body?
The video, “Just Stop It”, gives a hilarious look on the time and energy we waste upon fears that…really…never are going to happen.
What are results of fear? What causes it? What are physical and emotional symptoms? What is the positive side of fear?
The Four Personalities all have different causes of fear, and ways they deal with it.  What are ways we can overcome our fear?
 
And, in the Discussion…How do we GET OUT of the cycle of fear? What if we make a bigger mess when we try to figure it out, or make a mistake?  There is an easy question to ask ourselves to help us GET OUT . . . 
 
Realize, ladies, who you are, how much you are needed, and what you have to offer to the world !  BE EMPOWERED to push through fears that WILL come, and know that you are not alone in your search for wholeness. :))

33. How Can I Best Use My Gifts and Talents to Impact My World? 
The 7 T’s to Stewardship of mine and others can be studied to make sure we can see our gifts and talents, and turn them into economic benefit for everyone. WIN ! WIN!
How do we see our children’s gifts, and direct them to impact the world? Listen to Melissa’s story of how discovering her own personality and Life Vision and  those of others helps her to be a “cheerleader” of people.
Q & A in the group: What if we include our family, friends, or network in our efforts?
How can a Passion Circle help me to get started?
How does including my family and loved ones help me gain perspective as I work with others in business? How do our personality and talents help others. . . and how can we be more effective as we train our own 7 T’s to Stewardship?
What impact could this recorded message make on your network? Who can you send this to, and who will you invite to the AWESOME WOMEN mastermind call next week?
Next week, we’ll be discussing  . . . .”How Do we Win OTHERS, and Influence our FRIENDS?”  (did you catch that play on words?)

34. How Can One Learn to Keep Her Cool when Things Get Heated, so that Learning Happens, rather than a Fall Out? 
First, do you really NOT want to have the Drama? What benefits are lost when there are no Fall Outs?
Which personality benefits the most from Fall Out and Drama? How does the use of Drama help to move things forward . . . help people to solve their Biggest Challenges?
Group Discussion: 
Are we SURE that we don’t like Drama? Since we cause most of our own challenges, are we aware that we probably cause most of our Drama, too?
What about getting tasks done . . . moving relationships forward . . . not making matters worse . . . ? How can we USE drama to our advantage? How could we GROW and LEARN through times of Drama?

35. Why is a MAN involved in leading the Awesome Women Mastermind?
What questions do women have about life that they want to ask, but they don’t know they need to ask? How is Mark like “one of the girls” in understanding some of the issues women face? What are some things that Women DON’T want others — especially men — to know?
Women are sometimes a “silly” creature . . . Men know about these things, and seeing our life from a different perspective can be a rich and powerful experience!
What part do WOMEN play in the Awesome Women’s Mastermind? Attending, inviting others, sending out the recording, BRINGING something of ourselves to add value; listen to the discussion to hear so much MORE !

37. What does it mean to step in your courage?
Dr. Erin our special guest speaker presented the idea of women being courageous.  Are women really courageous?  Do they look at the things they have done and have accomplished and still have a sense that “I can’t do this?”
What part do WOMEN play in the Awesome Women‘s Mastermind? Attending, inviting others, sending out the recording, BRINGING something of ourselves to add value; listen to the discussion to hear so much MORE!
We are working on having guest speakers who will take us out of our comfort zone and help us to think differently. Our first 7 minutes present the topic and then the other 23 to go over questions and answers.  We are looking forward to having Nancy Virts owner of Tanglewood Conservatories join us very soon. Who will you INVITE to the call? Invite someone to take this 3-minute Survey. 🙂
