I wanted to share another lesson with you from my recent trip to Vail, Colorado and what I have learned by looking inward and developing a clearer focus on my personal life vision. A few weeks ago I wrote post on “manifesting your perfect life” and mentioned my intention to share other thoughts from what was a very reflective time for me. Today, we are going to talk about busting stories.
Bethenny Frankel has manifested the life of her greatest vision and truly has it all, a husband that loves her, a beautiful healthy child, good friends, a thriving career, mega-million dollar wealth, the respect of her peers and the admiration of her fans. All of this is true but Bethenny’s journey has not been easy and along the way she had to break a number of deep rooted stories formed over a lifetime of emotional abuse, parental cruelty and neglect.
I have followed Bethenny’s story as millions of others have by watching it all play out from her runner up status on Martha Stewart’s Apprentice, to the Real Housewives of New York, to Bethenny Gets Married, and continuing with Bethenny Ever-after. Sure, watching her story play out has made for good television, yet the lessons are much bigger and provide the true value to be gleaned from the example she represents. Bethenny’s story serves as the perfect guide to what becomes possible when we decide to bust our stories.
The picture above is a thumbnail from the June 6, 2011 cover of Forbes Magazine which hit the news stands during my Vail visit and made for enlightened reading a layer below the obvious. After reading about the sale of Skinnygirl Cocktails line to Jim Beam for a reported $120 million, I thought what a perfect reward and affirmation of Bethenny’s willingness to bust her stories and take control of her life vision.
Regardless of what you want to accomplish in your life, money, fame, respect, a happy family, a loving relationship, health, a fulfilling spiritual life, purpose, etc. You can accomplish it with the freedom of a clean slate and the best part is that you control for yourself. No one gets to define you once you take back your power by embracing your past and then breaking the stories that no longer server, or perhaps never did.
