§ We came to this world to LIVE OUT LOUD!

 

I have upleveled nearly every important area of my life in just 2 weeks.

I signed my family up for 2 weeks in Mindvalley U this summer expecting to grow, spend time learning new things that are important to us, forming connections with like-minded people and exploring Croatia.

Little did I know that these 2 weeks would catapult us into a different reality.

Sure, the workshops were interesting and we learned A LOT. The speakers were top-notch and spending a couple of weeks in a seaside town in Croatia was exhilarating.

But what made the biggest difference was surrounding ourselves with people who were inspiring, innovative, making a huge impact in the world and determined to live life on their own terms.

Mindvalley U is the sort of place where you can share any dream or desire with just about any person you meet and be met with enthusiasm, support, and ideas and personal connections to turn your dream into reality.

Research has shown that your life is greatly influenced by the 5 people you spend the most time with.

And I realized just how true this is at Mindvalley U. We met some amazing people: adventurers, explorers, global nomads, world schoolers, unschoolers, people who spent most of the past year volunteering with their kids in refugee camps, very successful social entrepreneurs who work less than 20 hours per week while living their life to the fullest, people who are really making a difference.

Our idea of what is possible began to expand.

We started to consider world schooling, unschooling, homeschooling or moving to Mediterranean Europe.

I really got how my fear of the limelight has kept me playing small. I was inspired to change this so I can share more of myself with the world, to be of service, without apology.

I began to have a clear vision of what my business could look like – with me focusing on what I love to do while somebody else takes care of the parts that I don’t – and recommitted to get that book done and do more public speaking this year.

I met some amazing women – experts on hormones, relationships, mind blowing sex, business and mindset – and enrolled them in joining my online Extraordinary Life After 40 Summit. We will now have a combined reach of 6 million women and can make some real impact! (More on this in the coming weeks!)

My husband and I learned amazingly simple yet effective tools (more so than years of therapy!) to communicate with love and really hear each other’s feelings. We started connecting like newlyweds. And committed to continue actively learning new skills to uplevel every area of our relationship and family life.

We were offered amazing opportunities for the girls to grow as global citizens. For our oldest to volunteer with refugees in Greece and assist with orthopedic surgeries in Kenya next summer and for our youngest to learn all about turtles and marine life by volunteering at a rescue center in Costa Rica. Our middle daughter had a profound personal experience which left us very proud of the choices she is making as an adult woman.

And I know this is just the beginning. We are just starting to assimilate all the learning and growth.

All this in just 2 weeks!

That’s how quickly it can all happen when you surround yourself with people who inspire and support you.

So, what about you? What helps you grow? Who are the 5 people you spend the most of your time with? Do they inspire and support you in reaching your dreams? Or do you need to find your tribe?

As always, I love hearing from you so feel free to leave a comment below or get in touch at natalie@nataliematushenko.com.
