We all have a purpose, a special gift, and a mission in life. The key is to find a way to share your gift with others.
My hope is that by the time you finish reading this page, you will be empowered to get out of your own way so you can share your unique gift, and impact the world!
I have been travelling around the states over these last few months, speaking to women and some wonderful men of all ages and races, inspiring and empowering them by giving them steps, techniques and insights to help them get clear direction so they can live their true purpose.
When Angelika Selle, the National President of the Women’s Federation for World Peace USA, asked me to speak at the 2018 leadership retreat in Atlanta, Georgia, I was honored. It was truly an incredible and unforgettable day for me. Chairwomen from around the country attended, including the amazing Las Vegas Chairwoman, Mary Hida, Vice President Sera Hirano, and Development Officer Raluca Heim, who are all from my hometown.
Even though I have been delivering keynote speeches for many years and have spoken at the WFWP’s 24th and 25th Anniversary Assemblies, this time I felt different. I could not think of an appropriate subject or title. You may ask why. I certainly asked myself, “Why am I having a difficult time?” I just couldn’t understand it.
Then I realized that I was speaking to leaders who have been serving and sharing their unique gift with their chapter members for years. These leaders are truly walking the talk. They live by their motto, “Living For The Sake Of Others.”
They always make sure to cherish and nurture their members’ unique gifts, but they don’t stop there. They support, empower, and encourage them to become the leader they are meant to be so they can make a difference in their communities and the world. The WFWP leaders are one of a kind. They certainly inspire me. What can I say or do to inspire them?
Of course, I meditated and prayed on it. Within two hours, I got my message. I heard my inner voice guiding me, telling me what to speak about and why. As I mentioned, WFWP’s leaders are doing an amazing job of serving our members. They feel comfortable, confident, and they are very clear on their message.
I seriously needed to stop and think about this. WFWP has been serving people around the world for 26 years. They are a federally recognized 501(c)(3) NGO in general consultative status with the Economic and Social Council of the United Nations. They have brought together hundreds of thousands of people from all around the world of all races, cultures, and religious creeds for the sake of peace.
I continued asking myself. What more can the leaders of WFWP really do or establish? What can I say to a group of incredible leaders who are already leading from their heart and NOT from their EGO?
I reminded myself of the many years I spent looking for an organization like WFWP that has the same mission and vision, and how I felt at home when I finally found them. The more I got to know about the Founder’s mission and vision, the more I felt at home and more blessings came with that. It didn’t take me too long to realize that I am no longer alone in trying to make a difference in the world… I have been given the opportunity to serve, share my gift, and live my purpose through The WFWP’s mission and vision. Nothing can describe that feeling!
After I had my “aha!” moment, I realized that all I needed to do was to speak from my heart, share my gift, and be the authentic me. As soon as I came to that conclusion, I stopped thinking, surrendered, and allowed God to work through me. Sure enough, God was guiding me on what I needed to do. I went on the WFWP’s website to learn more about the founder, Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon. Sure enough, the topic was, “What Do We Need To Do To Continue To Make More Impact In the World.” With that, the 3 B’s were born…
Here is “why” I wanted to talk about the importance of being authentic, even though I had no doubt that all of the leaders were very authentic: When we come from our authentic self, we serve, share, and speak from our hearts. The fear of other people’s judgment disappears in the presence of our authentic self.
It is very easy for us to be our authentic selfs when we are in our own environment. It takes a lot of constant practice to be in our authentic self when we step outside of our comfort zone. Champions practice every day for a reason. The leaders of the WFWP are willing to do anything to make the world a better place. They just needed to be reminded to continue to be their authentic self when stepping outside their comfort zone.
One of the reasons we aren’t fully confident when we are talking to someone about our mission, vision, or sharing our message is because we don’t know that person very well and we are not sure if they even care.
We get into our thinking brain and away from our authentic self. Therefore, our confidence goes down even if we know our subject 100 percent. It is not easy to switch hats. The solution is to get out of our thinking brain and practice staying in touch with our authentic self every day.
The reason I wanted to remind the leaders of the WFWP to always be prepared is because many people out there are looking for an organization like the WFWP. See, when I met the Las Vegas Chairwoman Mary Hida, I was attending my dear friend, Sandy Kastel’s, WIMA event. I was so impressed with Mary. I told her that I had been looking for an organization like hers for years. You can only imagine how happy I was when I found this amazing organization. I really enjoyed my conversation with Mary. I did not want to stop talking to her, we had so much in common. Then, she surprised me and told me that she knew who I was and had already read my book. Mary was definitely in her authentic self, confident, and prepared. That is what drove me towards her.
The leaders of the WFWP did not need me to teach them anything. They just needed me to remind them of what they already know.
As I learned more about the founder of the WPWP, Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon, and watched her videos, I saw something amazing, powerful and beautiful about her. She is completely in her authentic self, confident, and prepared.
The founder of the WFWP’s mission is to empower women with knowledge, skills, and a supportive community to discover their unique values and bring lasting peace to the world.
“History is calling for reconciliation, compassion, love, service, and sacrifice. Today’s problems cannot be solved by the logic of power… Our present problems can only be solved by the logic of love.”
– Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon
As I mentioned in the beginning, we all have a purpose, a special gift, and a mission in life. The big question is this: How can you live your true purpose, share your gift with others, and make a difference in the world? The answer is very easy, but it is not simple. The key is to be surrounded by like-minded people who encourage you and empower you to stay on your path no matter what!
Today, I am definitely living my dream by sharing my gift and making a difference in the world!
I am so honored to be the Special Liaison Officer for the “Women’s Federation For World Peace” USA. I am so excited to share with you that on November 12, 2018 in New York, Dr. Hak Ja Han Moon is going to share her message of “Peace Starts With Me” with over 15,000 people coming from all around the world of all races, cultures, and religious creeds for the sake of peace. It is so inspiring to see someone who puts so much effort into sharing their unique gifts with the world.💖
Always practice staying in your authentic self, building your confidence and being prepared.

” You don’t have to be perfect to be beautiful and powerful; all you have to do is be your authentic self”
