Episode 75 ~ with Noreen Mejias-Bennett
Possibility and potential – two words that we long to know personally, in the lives we create. And yet sometimes, we pull back from the truth of who we might become, as we come face-to-face with the jagged edge of the impact and implications in our lives. Although it’s not always easy and it’s not always fun, the great and soaring effect of embracing who we might become, demands that we first and foremost, be true to ourselves. That takes courage – and the willingness to see what we see, hear what we hear and know what we know.
In conversation with: Noreen Mejias-Bennett – WEL-Systems Institute Affiliate and Certified CODE Model Coach™ – brings both wisdom and experience to any conversation! For many years, as Noreen applied her significant skills and expertise to attending to people’s money, she soon discovered that far more compelling was the need to assist them in determining where meaning would be found in their lives.
Beyond her skills, credentials and willingness to engage, one of Noreen’s greatest gifts is to ‘call ’em like she sees ’em’. The courage to speak out loud the unspoken undercurrents that far too often highjack people’s lives, is a reflection of her greatest gift: her willingness and ability to become the jagged edge of possibility.
In her own words: “Leadership comes when I am willing to re-claim my VOICE. When I allow my voice to carry the message that comes from deep within my body, my life changes. The time is now. Leadership must come from women who are willing to re-awaken, re-connect, re-define, re-claim for ourselves that which is meaningful and sustainable … that which will allow us to stay healthy and well.”
