Last week I launched my latest entrepreneurial endeavor, The New Status Quo, a non-profit organization that is dedicated to helping people figure out what they want and holding them accountable as the take the steps to make it happen. The launch party was a HUGE success– I was completely humbled by the support I received not only from my friends, but from the community. As I shared the mission of the movement, I knew in my heart that this would be something very powerful for the Tulsa area (and eventually the country) and I was overwhelmed by the peace that came with it. Of course, as the universe would have it, this peace and amazing turn out did not come without a little lesson…
One week before the launch, I sat on my couch sending message after message promoting the upcoming event. As I sat and typed I could feel my body tensing up– I felt much more stressed than enlightened and my body knew it. The initial excitement of the idea had settled just enough for my fear to come out and play with my mind. Questions like, Who are you to try and start something like this? Do you even know what you’re doing? and What if no one shows up? raced through my mind as I seriously considered trading in my green juice for the largest margarita Tulsa had to offer…
But being the spiritual person that I am, I decided to take a breather and ask God just what (or she… whichever you prefer) would have me do. After a few tears and some deep breaths, the next step was very clear… let go. Throughout my spiritual evolution, those two syllables have been reoccurring, offering guidance when nothing else seems to suffice. And there they were again, guiding me to participate in the spiritual paradox or getting results by letting them go. By then I knew it worked and as hard as it was at the moment, the stressed out message sending was much harder. So I switched up my prayer. Instead of praying (more like demanding) that every soul in the greater Tulsa area walked through those doors on launch day, I began to ask that everyone who needed to be there would be there. With this simple shift in perception, my messaging time became filled with peace and I was once again very satisfied with my green juice.
One week later, the proof was in the pudding, baby! The room was filled with people who were passionate about the movement and eager to get involved. In addition to my beautiful friends that came out, I met new like minded people– among those people were potential funders, someone willing to share their location and media wanting to highlight the non-profit. It couldn’t have gone any better, and I am convinced that it’s because I was able to turn over the outcome to something bigger than myself and just LET GO.
I know there will be days throughout this journey that I feel this attachment again– whether it be to The New Status Quo, romantic relationships or the next project I work on– and each time I will be reminded of this experience and how once again letting go helped so much more than pushing and forcing ever could have. I am so excited about The New Status Quo and the impact I KNOW it will have on our country. For more information, check out our website: www.thenewstatusquo.com.
