Moxie Therapy : Moxie Up! The Secret to Extraordinary Success

Moxie Up! The Secret to Extraordinary Success

By Valery Satterwhite

What do those who achieve extraordinary success — Richard Branson, Oprah Winfrey, Steve Jobs, J.K. Rowling, Bette Midler, Mary Kay Ash, Angelina Jolie, Howard Stern, Danica Patrick, Ellen DeGeneres and Aunti Mame have in common?

Moxie

Those who rise above mere success to create an extraordinary life have the guts, fortitude, the confident courage to achieve authentic greatness with unrelenting drive and passion.

"When you feel in your gut what you are and then dynamically pursue it — don't back down and don't give up — then you're going to mystify a lot of folks." — Bob Dylan

You are here to mystify a lot of folks. In order to do that you have to muster up your Moxie! You already have within you everything you need to astound, amaze and electrify your world. You were given these gifts as your birthright:

  • M — ability to Master your opportunities
  • OOmnipotent; having unlimited power to create
  • X — the “X” factor — your Authenticity; who you really are; unique purpose
  • IIntuition: inner wisdom
  • EEnergetic expression: boldly thinking, speaking & acting with intention

In a word, you’ve got MOXIE!

Moxie is your unique expression of the human spirit. Some people call it a Higher Self, Inner Being, Soul, Heart-centered God force, or any number of other names that describe the voice of authenticity, intuition and the source of inspiration within each and every one of us.

"We are all divine, but I was the only one who had the nerve to call myself that." — Bette Midler

To apply this formula you must first ask, acknowledge and honor what would make your heart sing. If you don’t know the answer to this question or are feeling miscast in the story that is your life you may be on a path that is not your own.

Unless you are tapped in to your Nature, your authenticity, instead of your Nurture, your conditioning, you cannot express your MOXIE.

To achieve, maintain and enjoy extraordinary success you have to stand centered in the truth of who you really are. You must think, speak, act and renew your commitment to express your Moxie as you live and breathe each and every day.

“Laugh at yourself, but don't ever aim your doubt at yourself. Be bold. When you embark for strange places, don't leave any of yourself safely on shore. Have the nerve to go into unexplored territory.” — Alan Alda
