Have you heard the expression, “What’s the tea?” Well, it seems the tea is mostly about spilling gossip. Spilling gossip is often messy. Some people like being messy, but would you not rather pour tea and do it with Class, Confidence and Courage?
How do you do that, you ask? By becoming the best Tea Pot and pouring the best tea!
There is only one way to become a Tea pot, but many ways to pour that build people up rather than tear them down and do it with Class Confidence and Courage.
First you must learn to be a tea pot. There are all kinds of lovely Tea pots but what’s inside is all that matters.
A Tea Pot is filled with an abundance of storied flavors that when poured, fill people with hope, joy, and possibility.
The ways you can pour tea vary but you want to always pour tea with Class Confidence and Courage.
Becoming like a Tea Pot can also bring the possibility of success, wealth and prosperity if poured correctly. But it is only when you fill yourself with the best tea, that you can then pour into others.
But let us talk more about what it means to be like a Tea Pot. The well-being, self-care, coaching, and Influencer space is the tea right now.
It seems everyone and their momma has a course or program to offer their ideal audience, and many of them offer real opportunity, but some seem to be mostly hype and are very expressive, so many of us cannot be seated at the table of Prosperity because, well, we cannot afford it.
We are stuck at our menial jobs, putting up with a boss, when we would rather hire ourselves. Who would not want to be their own boss? Well, how about a simple course in Etiquette that teaches how to become a Tea Pot, pour into others, and sit at the table if Prosperity?
Before we go further, let me talk about another thing that potentially may stop others from becoming like a Tea Pot. For instance, these new celebrity ZOOM classes that teach the skills that got the celebrity to the table. Well, guess what? Celebrities are just like regular people, but they possess a special skill or talent and they make a lot more money. At least most of them do. They may possess a special skill or talent, but they have the same problems as us regular people have.
So, we can appreciate what they have to offer, but they are not the only ones. We have the tea too.
You can become a Tea Pot. Just fill yourself with the best tea and pour into others. You do not need a degree, certification, or special talent to inspire others. You just need to care.
Now, more about becoming a Tea Pot, and how to pour with Class, Confidence and Courage.
Class is about being able to meet life on life’s terms. It is about how you approach a situation. You can be messy, or you can use Etiquette. You can spill or you can pour.
“Class is an aura of confidence that is being sure without being cocky. Class has nothing to do with money. Class never runs scared. It is self-discipline and self- knowledge. It’s the surefootedness that comes with having proved you can meet life “
~ Ann Landers
Etiquette is about self-respect and respect for others. Remember, you’re becoming like a Teapot so you must choose to be the best-looking pot on the outside and fill yourself with the best tea on the inside.
You do this by always looking your best and taking the best part of your experience, knowledge, and wisdom along with any specific skill you have acquired or wish to acquire, and pour into others through books, workshops, programs, blogs, courses, mastermind groups, membership sites, product sales, seminars, and retreats, or even, Tea Parties, and finally by simply inspiring others to live their best life.
Choose your flavor of tea. Create your storied tea pot.
Confidence is belief in yourself with Faith, Purpose and Gratitude. Most people will not live up to their full potential for seeing the teacup as half empty rather than half full. In other words, you probably will not live up to your full potential or live your best life unless you believe in yourself.
Faith is an important part of being the best version of yourself. Gratitude is appreciating who you are, being comfortable in your own skin, and not being bothered by what other people think or say about you. So, believe in yourself!
Confidence is filling yourself with the best tea and living your best life with purpose.
“Confidence…is directness and courage in meeting the facts of life.”
Courage is about pushing through the fear to your Vision. If you have a vision for your life, this is the best start to living the life you deserve and desire.
Your vision must be filled with rich ideas and a strong foundation for opportunities that create success, wealth, and prosperity. We all know the best tea is hard to come by. It is never easy. Being courageous is hard. But it is the number one thing that determines success or failure in our lives.
“I am not afraid of storms for I am learning how to sail my ship.”
~ Louisa May Alcott
So, to be the best Tea Pot requires that we fill ourselves with the best tea and pour into others our experience, knowledge, and wisdom, with Class Confidence and Courage.
What’s your tea?
Be filled up,
