From success to significance
In this inspiring TEDx Talk, Crystal shares 4 strategies to create a ripple effect in life, business, and the world. You will also learn about your ultimate purpose, innate gifts and talents, and how to make your why bigger to achieve your dreams.
Leading a healthy life is extremely important to bring dreams to life. Making healthy life choices a priority creates a powerful vessel and enables abundant opportunities. With optimum physical, mental, emotional, and spiritual well-being, everything is possible.
An attitude of gratitude is life changing! Expressing gratitude and being grateful, spreads joy, good karma, and makes the world brighter and better. It creates a more meaningful life in every way. It helps change how we look at things, and therefore, the things we look at change.
With integrity and honesty, anything is possible. Integrity means stepping into a life full of honesty, kindness, thoughtfulness, and genuine authenticity. Owning your words and actions is the foundation of being real and vulnerable.
Creativity is integral to being. If we allow ourselves, we could be continually creating something new that could benefit ourselves and others. It’s in our DNA, an outlet, a form of expression that makes us feel fulfilled. It’s a vehicle for us to share our gifts with the world.
Courage represents being ‘true self’, while being brave and vulnerable at the same time. It is simply about taking a stand and walking the talk. Courage is to live a life with abandon, an open heart, embrace endless opportunities, and stepping into our authentic selves.
Loving, living, and exploring life and the world to its fullest potential. Trying new things outside the norm and going after big dreams. Believing that anything is possible and EVERYTHING is possible. It’s about taking a stand, opening your wings, and shooting for the stars.
Contributing to others is a way to lead and leave the world a better place. Make a difference to those who need it most allows them to tap into their opportunities and become the leaders of tomorrow. Striving to be not only the best in the world, but also the best for the world.
To inspire people to bring their dreams to life.
Change the world by igniting a movement that inspires people to realize their dreams, creating a ripple effect for others to do the same.
As Seen In
The location was gorgeous and we had ample free time to explore the village, head to the beach or hang out at the resort. I loved the balance of yoga, workshops and free time.
I would highly recommend the retreat to give yourself time to pause, reflect and refocus.”
