DWP Challenge Day 5: Diva Circle

“Across species and throughout human cultures, females have banded together for protection and mutual support. They have groomed each other, tended each other’s young, nursed each other in illness and engaged in the aimless sociability that generally has mystified male anthropologists.
But the power of girlfriends is beginning to yield its secrets to science. For women, friendship not only rules, it protects. It buffers the hardships of life’s transitions, lowers blood pressure, boosts immunity and promotes healing. It might help explain why women, on average, have lower rates of heart disease and longer life expectancies than men.” 
~ Melissa Healy, Seattle Times

The friendships I have with other divas are absolutely priceless.  My divas have inspired me in so many ways.  We’ve celebrated together, cried together, mourned together, succeeded together, motivated one another and so much more.

Today’s challenge is to connect with 4 other divas and commit to motivating and uplifting each other over the next 5 days. It can be as simple as a mass text or email, inspirational Facebook posts, or conference calls. Whatever your schedules will allow and you can all  commit to.  My circle for the next 5 days is super diverse and eclectic! I can’t wait to see how we motivate and inspire each other.

The most common way people give up their power is
by thinking they don’t have any.

Week 1 of the Challenge:

Day 1: Write Personal Mission Statement

Day 2: Rather than criticize, coach. Motivate with positive feedback and influence.

Day 3: Do something nice for someone else – leave a soda money by the vending machine, pay for someone’s coffee, let that extra car turn during your morning or afternoon commute, etc

Day 4: Focus on the positive all day. No negative thoughts. (Warning – often when you make a conscious effort to be positive, it will seem as though anything and everything that can go wrong will – keep smiling and stay positive through it all).

Day 5: Connect with at least 4 other people and commit to motivating and inspiring one another for the next 5 days. It doesn’t have to be anything ornate – just a simple motivating text, email, Facebook post, etc.

Day 6: Have a selfish moment. Do something for yourself.

Day 7: Share lessons from your successes and failures with someone that can benefit from it.
