A couple of weekends ago, our leadership team had the opportunity to attend the RISE Conference hosted by Rachel Hollis in Dallas and let me tell you, we all walked away with a new fire in our hearts.
Today, we wanted to take a minute to share some of our biggest takeaways as well as why you should put this event on your bucket list for 2020.
Here's what Halee our Retail Manager in Indiana, had to say about RISE:
One of Chris' good friends, Kelsey, came with us and here's what her biggest takeaway was:
Candy, our Office Supervisor, had some great breakthroughs at RISE:
After the conference, I wrote down 11 big takeaways and folded them to an overarching theme. Here's what I thought about RISE:
"I walked into this weekend, ready to receive and implement. I'd read Rachel's books and knew I loved her messaging so seeing her live was incredible. I don’t know about you, but I have a bit of a control issue and that resonates in my personal and professional life, although, I do feel like I’ve made great strides in letting it be (thank you, Beatles). A consistent theme at RISE was that you can control how you show up for life. You can make the conscious choice everyday to decide how you are going to go after a new goal, how you are going to be present at work, how you are going to be a patient wife. Only you can decide how you’re going to attack each day. So the next time something happens that is out of your control, stop, drop, shut ‘em down and open up shop. For those of you that’s didn’t get this reference, GO TO RISE, but also shift your focus to what you can control (PS- you can also control your reaction when things don’t go your way.)
In February this year, I hosted my own women's conference and when Rachel shared that the first RISE had 200 women attend in 2017, my eyes got so wide. My own conference had 150 women and that just reassured me that dreams that we turn into actionable goals are possible with the right habits, the right mindset, and the right energy. So cheers to continuing to be grateful for the journey."
Chris is the reason that we were all able to have this eye opening experience and as an employee, I can truly say that I have seen her make a major shift in the last 10 days. She shared this the other day on her Instagram:
"I feel like the last 4 years of my life are suddenly making sense. The dark days finally have a meaning. I’ve never felt more motivated to be the best version of myself so that I can help the women around me realize how amazing they are and bring light to their dark days. At RISE we talked a lot about the negative voice in our heads, mine is a real prize, she loves to tell me how overweight I am, how I’m not pretty enough and how unlovable I am. People gave names to their voice, but guys the more I’ve prayed about it, that voice isn’t me, that voice is Satan and I’ve been letting him win.
If you’re starting this new day, this new week not knowing how amazing you are, how capable you are, how beautiful you are, how deserving you are, girl you are letting the lies win! God wants more for all of us! We are leaving a legacy for every girl that comes after us, do it for yourself and then do it for her. We are so much stronger then we let ourselves believe. Put the work in, get 30 minutes of movement a day, shut down the voice and any external voices of negativity in your life, choose your mood! You are in control! I’m going to say it again, your life is not out of control, you are in control!"
As you can see, this experience was so powerful for our leadership team. The rest of our staff is still a bit confused when they see us jumping around the office and dancing to shift our minds, but we think they will catch on eventually. If you ever get the chance to go to one of her conferences, we highly recommend it.
We are looking forward to bringing this renewed energy to CCB and sending a little bit of empowerment with each order. Here's to a great weekend!
