First blog post in 2019! I'd like to highlight my exploration last month at Resonation 2018 and dedicate this special post for all women. Here are a few things that I picked up from the inspirational ladies..
First, we had Jenny Jusuf. She is a scriptwriter for many movies including Filosofi Kopi and Cek Toko Sebelah. She shared about how she went through her past life; abused by her father and traumatic mother and a canceled engagement. But, that didn't stop her from embarking to her writing career and becoming an award-winning scriptwriter.
“Refuse to stay as a victim, I choose to be a victor”.
I learned from her to find joy, that you have to go after your dream, and you have to be willing to do it even if it doesn’t give you anything yet.
Gretta van Riel, a Multi-million entrepreneur asal Australia menceritakan perjalanannya untuk sukses. She started her first business, Skinny Me Tea in 2012 with only $24 in her bank.
Seiring berjalannya waktu pesanan produk tersebut tidak dapat dikerjakannya sendiri, sehingga ia membuka pabrik di China yang sempat membuatnya mendapat kerugian sebesar $1.3 million karena ketidakbersihan alat dan bahan saat diproduksi. She learned from her mistake and started again from the beginning.
Tidak sampai disitu saja, ia melanjutkan membangun 4 bisnis baru yang membuatnya tercatat di Forbes 30 under 30.
“In the end my biggest fear lead to my biggest learning – that it was all repeatable”
Final session: Idil Ahmed founder of Idilionaire
This session was to release all self-judgement and the pain of the past. Dengan kegiatan Soul Healing, agar para perempuan dapat memaafkan dan menerima diri sendiri dan berani untuk mewujudkan mimpi. Sesi ini diiringi dengan musik harpa yang dimainkan oleh Maya Hasan (versatile harpist).
“I forgive myself from the past, so I can change who I am right now”
She made us learn to heal ourselves from past beliefs, renew ourselves and manifest every dream.
I'd like to give a note that these ladies aren't just successful financially, but they were able to let go of any resistance, dare to set their dreams and feel good about it. And that's what's important.
Hope this can inspire you to make things happen!
