Are You a Winner?

In The News
You don’t always get what you want, the universe gives you what you need

Every month I put all my cash in the pot to attend one major ticket event. June’s event was the WNA Launch party.

Purchasing a 2nd hand frock off a friend, I showed up with a big smile and an open heart.

I had also donated one of my Breakthrough programs and was interested to see who I would get to spend 6 hours with.

Not being a subscriber of “set really clear intentions before you walk into a room” philosophy. I prefer to tap into the universal laws and let them decide what is right for me.

Splashing out on 3 raffle tickets – a friend had just paid me for something so I was feeling cashed up – I wanted to donate to the very worthy cause ‘Share The Dignity’.

There were 2 prizes I was interested in, a piece of jewellery and the massage basket. I did do a little bit of visualisation simply asking for the right prize for me, to come my way.

The result was a little unexpected.

You see we were also in the room with a volleyball legend, a five time Olympian and Gold Medalist no less.

Natalie Cook was not only a vivacious speaker but also a generous women, spending 3 times more than the 90mins that she planned to stay.

There was a boxed golden volley ball signed by the champion herself (which I discovered later is something that Hayley had to beg for).

Winning the ball was weird. First was Yeah me!! I won the top prize!! The most valued and sought after one.

However I had my eye on the massage, (my back is always sore). Whilst I wasn’t disappointed, the second thought was, “what am I going to do with it!”

It’s pretty sizeable – I’m going to have to make space in my office for it.  I really didn’t know what I was going to ‘DO” with an ornamental trophy ball.

Trinkets and souvenirs are not my thing really, the only things I collect are practical ones.


Fighting Hayley off at the end of the night, I took it home asking for some insight as to WHY I had won it, rather than the massage treatment.

You see when a symbolic item comes into my life I like to understand the deeper meaning it brings with it.

2 thoughts came to me overnight.

First: I was reminded that we don’t always get WHAT we want, WHEN we want it, but if we consistently show up with a genuine desire to serve others and share our gifts, we will always been a winner.

I whole heartedly believe and teach that eventually the Universal Law of Rhythm will kick in for us.

Additionally though, and rather personally, it’s a sign of what lies ahead for me.

Second: I have goals and dreams to reach and serve more women and couples struggling through their lives.

The ball and background story from Natalie will serve as a beacon of golden light in any time of doubt I may have.  I will be a winner.

So my message to pass on today is this…

Keep dreaming big folks, follow (and believe) the signs that are supporting you and providing the signposts along the way, showing you that you are on the right path.

‘Go For [your] Gold’

  1. Don’t get distracted by others, find the symbols to remind you of your goals and keep your eye on your own ball game.
  2. Don’t get waylaid by shiny projects, be consistent and take intentional steps every day.
  3. Be open to how and WHAT success is and the associated milestones along the way.

Then You WILL be a winner.

QUESTION: What are you symbols and physical motivators to remind you of your big goals and dreams?
