As founder and CEO of Brenda Stanton, Inc. and The Modern Woman’s Toolkit, Brenda is a woman who lives by her philosophy to Claim Your Worth!
For years Brenda has helped women to leverage the platform of creative multi-faceted business as the perfect tool for full-on self-realization and spiritual evolution. Through her transformative visionary teaching, mentoring and consulting, Brenda helps women see their full potential by transforming their sabotaging hold-backs into immense clarity, courage and confidence for un-limited possibility – and strength – so they can step through their greatest fears and into their Divine Purpose.
Brenda’s passion for creative entrepreneurship and spiritual growth had taken root years ago after a long-stint in publishing and advertising at some of the nation’s top media and consulting firms. Discovering that the corporate halls didn’t hold her answers for meaning and fulfillment, Brenda took her “burnt-out” Self and followed her heart’s call for MORE.
Today, Brenda owns and operates a successful Life-Style business where she teaches, leads, and inspires women with Big Visions to step into their greatness and teaches via a variety of platforms including: Business Retreats, Workshops & Events, and Private One-Day Intensive Consults.
Brenda writes a powerful and insightful weekly eZine “Note Worthy” where women find inspiration, stories, and advice to help them claim their worth. She is a Certified Life Coach through Coach Training Alliance and a graduate of Umass Amherst’s School of Management.

”Believe nothing because a wise man said it.
Believe nothing because it is generally held.
Believe nothing because it is written.
Believe nothing because it is said to be divine.
Believe nothing because someone else believes it.
But believe only what you yourself judge to be true.” ~The Buddha
How does our history become sad or happy? How and why do our experiences affect the way we think and feel? Are human beings born to be miserable? NO! We are born to be human and to evolve through experiences. We are born to win!
There is no doubt that we all have a big variety of situations or experiences during our existence that we allow to affect the way we think and therefore the way we feel. There are people, objects and intangibles things that we meet and they become part of our experiences and therefore our history.
We all make choices, every day, every moment. The reason we are happy or unhappy is not our experiences but the way we deal with our experiences; what we think about them, therefore the attitude we take. Everything we do either makes us successful or unsuccessful, moves us forward or backward, every day, every moment.
Being miserable or happy is personal; it is a matter of choice and this choice has to do with the attitude each of us has.
Attitude is everything! Things are the way they are, they cannot be otherwise. The problem starts when we label our experiences with our own beliefs. Our attitude is the outcome of how we feel and how we will respond. Sadly and ironically, many of us build such an attitude that instead of solving the problems we already have, we create even more problems. Ironically again, this is the history of the so-called more intelligent being on the planet.
So, what we can do to be happy? How can move forward instead of backward?
First we have to consider cause and effect…
Our mind stores our experiences as thoughts, thoughts create feelings or emotions, and what we feel is the way we act. Our attitude is a reaction to our thoughts, feelings and actions; it is positive or negative based not on what we think, but how we think, and how we think is related to our level of awareness.
So, the roots of our misery, problems, disillusions, worries and sadness are in our thoughts; how we think about things. When we have negative thoughts, we are creating misery in our lives and if it’s something that we don’t want for our life, it is time to take control and put our brain to work to form a new attitude by creating new positive thoughts.
You will only be happy, move forward, be the champion you are meant to be when you are honest and take action. Start to motivate your mind with positive thoughts. Start with thoughts of love, optimism, and creativity. Start by appreciating and valuing every second of life, everything you are and have, and become passionate about everything you do.
Stop labeling! Things are the way they are but if you decide to label them, then label your experiences, with your fellow human beings and with your environment, in a positive and optimistic way. Regardless of what happens, paint your life, daily, with a smile in everything you experience. The more you do this, the happier you will become.
Move with the flow. Things are the way they are, they cannot be otherwise. If you row in the direction the river is flowing, its energy assists you. But, if you row against the river’s flow, it is only a matter of time before you become exhausted, overwhelmed and defeated.
It is super important to be clear; to understand that happiness is not dependent on the outside world. Nobody can make you happy or unhappy. Be responsible for your life. You and only you have the power to control the way you feel.
When your desire to be happy becomes as strong as the need to breathe, you will be happy. If you want to be happy, make happiness part of your daily thoughts, emotions and actions.
So, be happy, it is not only your choice but also your right! Be happy, regardless; you definitively deserve it. Remember, sixty seconds of sadness is one minute less of happiness!!! ^_^
To listen to my interview with Craig Hamilton, author of Broken Open, simply go to the Link, “AM-WWLZ820 Talk Radio” and click on “Craig Hamilton, Surviving Bipolar Disorder and Beyond…” I promise you won’t be disappointed. This is an amazing account of Craig’s struggles and triumphs with Bipolar Disorder, and his amazing work in helping others through this difficult illness. Craig quotes Martin Luther King, Jr. at the end of the show with “Our lives begin to end when we remain silent about the things that matter.” That sums it all up. Thank you so much Craig Hamilton, for being the beautiful soul that you are. Many blessings to you!
”I could only do it by letting go and trusting—trusting that my intuition was right, that I would get the help I needed, and that things would unfold as they should.” – Peggy Rome
Trusting your intuition isn’t always easy. We tend to second guess ourselves when we get that “feeling”. Am I really able to reach that dream? Why am I feeling like something isn’t quite right? I am being told one thing and sensing something else. Always trust your intuition. It isn’t something that requires forcing, just believe in its truth. Go with your feeling, be true to yourself, and all the rest will play out. It WILL come to you.
When you follow the path you know is right and healthy for you people and projects will begin to fall at your feet. It often requires patience and perseverance so be prepared to gather your strength and travel with it. If you have a wish for your future, whether it be personal, professional or a simple project, keep it with you. Write it down, step into it one day at a time and keep your mind and heart on your desire. Manifestation is a powerful tool. Use it and never give up. If you turn off your path it’s never too late to get back on and allow the universe to work with you in reaching what is meant for you! Just remember, the more you turn off your path, the longer it will take to reach your destination. Your choice, your future.
What is your intuition telling you? LISTEN and you just might find that HEART of gold at the end of your rainbow.
“I never jumped in and rescued you,
but I wanted to
I didn’t tell you which way to go,
’cause I thought you’d know…
I never told you I told you so, but I told you so
Have to let it go
It’s time to let it go”
~ Barenaked Ladies, lyrics to “Told You So”
We’ve all been there, thinking we can control the outcome of someone’s destiny. Trying so hard to help and hold on, but is it really helping you or the person you’re trying to “help”? Oftentimes, we are only getting in the way of the lessons that require learning. If someone you love has a path of many face plants, then you must accept that and let go of the illusion of control. In most cases, the lesson will be learned. If not, well, it was never your lesson to be responsible for in the first place. It’s time to let it go….
On the flip side of this coin is YOU. Only you can steer your ship, no one else. You must be the one to pave your way, put the energy and work into your dreams, and drive to your destination. However long it takes, no matter how many mountains you must cross, stay with your own journey and you will stake your flag at the end of the marathon. This doesn’t mean that you don’t reach out for support along the way. Those that truly care about you will be there for you, as you are there for them. Gather support from your friends, family, loved ones, and all universal energy. You will be well on your way to your dream fulfillment.
Allow those you love to experience their own path. Release energy into your journey, let go and give Source the freedom to guide you, all the way to the finish line. Namaste.
