Create the life you love:

Another important speaker who came to speak to our organization was Sarah Glitzer.  Sarah is a professional coach, facilitator, motivational speaker, and owner of Sarah Glitzer Consulting.  She specializes in coaching individuals, teams, and businesses to identify their strengths and to use them to elevate their performance to successfully reach goals.

Creating the life you love was a very powerful message that Sarah expressed to us.  She described struggles with her own life, but asked us to remember how many people often struggle in life in various situations as well.

Sarah created an environment for our members that made us really reflect on our own lives.  She wanted us to be open with ourselves in order to think about what would changes our lives for the better.

Some of her advice was…

  • Know what excites you
  • Know yourself
  • Get out of the way!
  • Make a bold statement
  • Honor yourself

We need to keep pushing ourselves to be the best we can be but not be afraid to fail.

This was one of the most passionate and heartfelt speeches I have ever heard.  An hour flew by listening to Sarah Glitzer speak.  She recommends to all individuals that we discover our defining purpose.  Find what makes you tick.  And to find what makes you tick, you must know yourself.

Once you find yourself, take everything negative out of your life.  Take the routines, excuses, and negativity that you or others put on you, and get it out of your life.  Make a bold statement by taking risks and keeping your support system nearby.

Finally, honor yourself.  With all of this information, none of it is worth it if you don’t stay true to yourself.  As students, many of us get scared or anxious if others have their lives figured out and we don’t.  We need to keep pushing ourselves to be the best we can be but not be afraid to fail.

To all my fellow students: Just a few more weeks left of the semester!  You can do it!!

And to those students graduating in May, don’t fret!  Just finish the semester, and be the best you that you can be!

Thank you very much to Kathy Cruz from Umbaugh and Sarah Glitzer from Sarah Glitzer Consulting for providing the Women in Business organization with such amazing advice and encouragement.  We will definitely hold on to it.
