Choose to be Epic with Carolyn Buck Luce
Let's enjoy walking and listening to this interview with Carolyn Buck Luce, inventor of The Decade Game®, co-founder Imaginal Labs LLC. Carolyn is a culture shifter, talent innovator, executive coach and speaker shares how women need to stand up for their power and their purpose. Carolyn has been a diplomat in the Soviet Union, an international and Wall Street banker who reinvented herself and created The Decade Game®. One of the amazing things about The Decade Game® is Carolyn can trace its origins from when she was 8 years old. Carolyn has been on a journey of reinvention and showing women how to choose to be epic. Listen to this conversation with host Natalie Benamou and Carolyn Buck Luce as they discuss how you can rewrite your future starting today. Get Started with Choosing to be Epic: Commit to being epic by making the choice. Be the heroine of your own story. Center on the fact that it is your choice to be Epic. Other Inspirational Notes: Imagine what would be the most epic identity that reflected your greatest power, 10 years from now. Visualize how you will know yourself and be known by people you love. Embrace that identity and make it as epic and bold as possible. Stop waiting for something to happen, for something to change. When thinking about the past year with COVID-19 rethink it as happening for you, not to you. Create meaning for others in 3 ways: Go inside yourself and listen to what's longing to happen. Listen closely to the people who you love and say, what can I do that matters to them? Commit to your own mastery and that requires you to lean into what's really longing to happen. "There is no such thing as the wrong move. It's only the next move." - Carolyn Buck Luce Song by Maura Rampolla on YouTube: “I’m Gonna Love You” LinkedIn: Carolyn Buck Luce Facebook: The Decade Game® Websites:  Decade Game The Decade Game with Imaginal Labs Imaginal Labs Carolyn Buck Luce, inventor of The Decade Game®, co-founder Imaginal Labs LLC Natalie Benamou is the CEO of HerPower2 Lead and HerCsuite™ an online platform for Executive Women.
