It has been an extraordinary few days for me and I finally have a moment to reflect on the Summit of Greatness.It has been an extraordinary few days for me and I finally have a moment to reflect on the Summit of Greatness.
The people of Ohio have the BIGGEST hearts & I loved having a home away from home. Some people were a little puzzled as to why I was in Ohio but I was more than happy to share why. One of my drivers said "This Lewis Howes must be pretty special if you travelled all the way from Australia for his conference". But before I could utter a word I heard her say "Girl! Your smile just said it all. I need to attend his school"
So to Lewis Howes, the Summit team and the phenomenal speakers my deepest thanks. As I write this my heart continues to sing

In a space of a few days I had the privilege to meet so many extraordinary individuals. Each and every one of you is a beacon of light and it was an incredible honour to have shared this EPIC moment with you all. My family has gotten bigger

I used to struggle with seeing myself as great but the Summit opened my eyes and heart. My understanding of being great is:
The power that a smile has to inspire.
A heart which beats so passionately that the world is a much better place. A fire within which gives us courage to face fears. Being vulnerable. To love deeply, laugh often and live a life of gratitude. Wherever you are on your journey to greatness know you will always have a friend in me, supporting you and cheering you on. I'm always happy for a chat
If you're ever in Melbourne let me know. I'd be more than happy to show you around.
Wishing you all much love & happiness. Show less

I'm just now heading home to Arizona from Ohio and have finally had the chance to reflect on this past weekend.I'm just now heading home to Arizona from Ohio and have finally had the chance to reflect on this past weekend. Something has been nagging at me for days that I couldn't quite put into words; but it finally hit me and I want to share it with you all...
Lewis finishes every single podcast interview by asking 'what's your definition of Greatness?' I have heard him ask that question hundreds of times, and I have listened to every single response he gets. I have contemplated over and over in my own mind how I would answer that question but have not yet been able to get there. I know what Greatness feels like, but I have not been able to figure out how I would put it into words. I finally figured it out.
We tap into our Greatness when we allow ourselves to be led by the fire that burns within us, rather than allowing ourselves to be minimized and controlled by the darkness that surrounds us. Greatness is about connecting with others through love and possibility, rather than pain and fear. We live in a world where our learned behavior is to constantly search for comfort and safety. We are surrounded by people who are stuck in a viscous cycle of believing that tearing others down is the only way they can truly lift themselves up. A world where the majority relates to each other through pain. What we all just experienced was a group of people who brought out the best in each other. Just by showing up, we collectively raised our standards of ourselves and of each other. I felt it with every conversation I had. So I just want to thank each of you for showing up, for raising the bar, thank you for every time you stepped outside of your comfort zone. That is where the magic happens.
This event was the very essence of Greatness. To me, Greatness is when we connect to the deepest part of ourselves that wants to make an impact in this world no matter how big or small, and we allow ourselves to be moved by it in spite of the comfort and safety that our egos are constantly searching for.
And I write this so I can anchor this for myself but also as a nudge to those of you who are worried about losing the momentum of this past weekend - Keep the bar raised. Don't lower your standards to fit into a world that may not be working for you. Don't minimize yourself for the sake of someone else's comfort. Every moment that we allow ourselves to be led by our own greatness, we hold the space open for others to find the greatness within them.
I am so grateful for you Lewis. There are no words to describe the amount of courage it takes for a person to show up in this world the way you do. You have shared your story with the world, and continue to do so. But only you truly know what it took to get here. I just want to acknowledge you for that. Through you we are able to tap into a level of greatness within ourselves that most people only dream about. Thank you for creating and holding that space for us.
I love you guys. Keep the momentum going. Finish the year strong. We've got this. Take a stand for your Greatness. Show less
