The Dalai Lama said, “The world will be saved by the Western woman.” That’s us, ladies. We have the power to change the world.

Even though men are still leading the world and often women are not paid a man’s salary for doing the same work, know that you already have the skill set of an army general just nurturing your family and keeping your household running. If you can do that, you can create a CEO’s salary from home. I know, because I’m one of many women making a solid six-figure income in network marketing.

If we’re going to change the world, we need money to do it.

One of the most important skills you will learn in network marketing is how to balance your inner and outer world. You do this by making time for yourself each day to delve into that peaceful place within.

Women tend to exhaust themselves taking care of everyone else. After they spend the day doing the equivalent of running in front of an oncoming train, there is no more energy left for themselves.

I encourage you to put yourself first, giving yourself twenty minutes a day of sacred time. Here’s why: your belief systems have to change in order for your outer world to change. As you become aware of limiting beliefs, you’ll be able to dismantle them and replace them with empowering beliefs.

When I first realized I was responsible for being broke, I was annoyed. I had to come to terms with the fact that my financial condition could have changed much earlier if I had just taken charge of my thoughts. Part of my personal development journey became spending time alone each day delving inside, exploring the amazing mystery that is me, and redirecting my energy outward framed by new thoughts.

As I created new beliefs about money, my income started soaring and soon I had money in the bank as well as some amazing investments.

Journaling is what helps me balance my inner and outer world. I settle in for quiet time every day and allow my pen to write whatever is on my mind. I ask myself different questions about challenges I’m facing, then wait for my Higher Self to respond. I always get a new perspective. From there I can choose new thoughts that will evoke new feelings, propel new actions, and create new results in my life. If I don’t take the time to go inside to receive the wisdom, I get bounced around in the outer circumstances of the day. It’s like being caught in a hurricane of everyone else’s thoughts and emotions.

Within each of us is boundless peace. This inner stillness is designed to help us bloom into the outer world, just as every flower on the planet is designed to bloom. The outer circumstances around us are like a hall of mirrors. They reflect back who we are from many different angles; however, those reflections are not us. Trying to manipulate the mirrors around us to make changes in the physical world is exhausting and doesn’t work.

Think of it this way: when I plunk a pebble into the middle of a pond, the ripples start moving out towards the circumference. If I jump into the pond and try to change the direction of the ripples, I create a mess. I have to always come back to my still center, take a clear look at what’s going on in my belief system, then change my belief. Journaling helps me to identify old patterns and pick new ones. When I drop that new pebble of thought into the pond of existence, the Law of Resonance amplifies it into the world. It’s easy and it follows natural law. You are a tuning fork; everything in your outer world is your vibration resonating back to you.

I encourage you to take time for yourself each day. Cherish your sacred space. Turn off all electronic devices. Create a place in your home where you reconnect with your Self. That’s where you discover your power and learn to sculpt your world like an artist sculpts a block of clay. As your thoughts and feelings change, your world will change.

┬áIt’s a knack, this balance between the inner and outer worlds. The only way you learn how to do it is to start doing it. A vast reservoir emerges naturally when we let it flow. You’ll know you have made changes because your paycheck will grow. That’s your report card. That, combined with the amazing skill set you already have called womanhood, can transform the world.
