Manifest Destiny Part I: Whatever Roma Wants, Roma Gets
Updated: Jun 3, 2019
"I always get what I aim for And your heart and soul is what I came for."
- Damn Yankees
The timeless song, "Whatever Lola Wants" from the 1955 musical Damn Yankees is an anthem many women secretly hum when they get ready before work or a night out on the town.
That's the truth.
Fashionably manifesting your own destiny is done through self-affirmation and meditation. Write down what you want, read aloud what you want, and proclaim aloud what you want everyday... multiple times each day.
Each night before bed, I meditate and seek love - love for myself, others and for love in my actions. When my alarm wakes me in the morning, my meditation focuses on seeking motivation, wealth and success.
We've all made plans, but how many of us have actually taken specific action? You can believe that your destiny awaits and you can have faith; but faith without works is dead. In other words, after identifying what you want - but you don't know yet how to start - write your plan backwards.
What is the last action to take to achieve your goal?
What is the action that will pave way to the last action?
With whom do I need to connect to get to the next stepping stones?
And so on...
Everything (well, almost everything) that I know how to do is self-learned. That even includes my professional career as a publicist, from which bloomed loyal relationships, priceless moments and the power to say, "no." Exactly how did I learn the game of public relations? I learned the game backwards.
Speaking of formulating ways to get what I want (or, rather, to achieve my goals), I do admit that I sport alluring colors when I do business. Rome, one of my favorite cities which I visited, seduced me with brightly colored doors, thousand-year-old architecture, along with green, yellow and red food. The capital of Italy flaunts its beauty that allures all of one's senses. The sounds, shapes and aggressively beautiful colors of Rome sent me back home with a heightened, sass-injected confidence that allowed me to be more open-minded, think differently and listen to others more mindfully.
Red, blue, green, orange, yellow - stay sassy and rock it all.
