    Finding Purpose Past the Pain by February 2015 Blogger-in-Residence-Monica Leak

    In 2002 Pastor, Rick Warren released a book entitled The Purpose Driven Life. The book became an instant bestseller that according to Publisher’s Weekly was the bestselling nonfiction work in history on the basis of its answer to this fundamental question, what on earth am I here for? The book took on a life of its own as people across the world gathered in churches and small groups to take this journey with the result being that of discovering of purpose. The question of purpose raises its head in so many different ways. Students may question the purpose for a specific course that seemingly has no relevance or employees may…

    Hey Brilliance- How are you directing life? Have you manifested your dreams? It’s been a while, but you already know, Couture Purpose releases posts when we sense the need to affirm and confirm to you—YOUR Brilliance is needed to advance the common good. The current climate around the globe may seem tumultuous. Many of us discern the shakings in the atmospheres we occupy, and life is requesting we lead in love or fear. Our questions to you are “Whose report will you believe?” “Whose voice are you listening?” “Does the “Voice” you hear reflect love, hope, peace and wealth?” We want to energize you to—take the time and develop and…

    Question???

    Hey Brilliance- How are you? Are you feeling abundance or are you contending with lack. Wherever you CURRENTLY, find YOURSELF.

Couture Purpose is intentionally positioning ourselves to catch the next waves, movements and moments in social entrepreneurship. We keep noticing one thing…WOMEN DO NOT ASK ENOUGH QUESTIONS!!!

    You Are First…Go Lead!!!

    Hey Brilliance- What have you been up to? Hopefully manifesting a dream, which will positively change the life experience for mankind. Often times we seek mentors, counselors, teachers to assist us along our journeys. But, what happens when the teacher has not or never appeared? What happens when you discover YOU are the teacher? Many of us are being called into “First” position. Even though society has evolved over the years—women are still being told WHAT THEY CAN NOT DO! When you research the deficit of female CEOs, pastors, business owners etc.…there is an overwhelming amount of evidence you Brilliance maybe called to be “First.” In viewing the interview with…

    Alignment is CALLING!!!

    Hey Brilliance- I hope you are feeling the light and love of this season. We know you are busy manifesting your greatness so this is going to be short and to the point. Today is 12-12-12. Many numerologists and scientists are calling this day a phenomenon in our generation. Oxford Dictionaries defines phenomenon as a fact or situation that is observed to exist or happen, especially one whose cause or explanation is in question. I agree with these thought leaders. I view “Phenomenon” as a question waiting to be addressed. Our question to you—what’s keeping you out of perfect alignment with your “Truest Self?” We encourage you to take the…

    RePURPOSE the “GIFT”

    Hello Brilliance- It’s been a while…I hope since our last chat you proclaimed what YOU REALLY want. How are you feeling? I mean how are you really feeling? If you are like, so many of us during this time of the year, you are more than likely revisiting your 2012 goals and sensing some of your goals are unachievable. It’s not your fault you are brilliant and your master plan is taking a little longer than initially forecasted. In our professional opinion…SO WHAT, STOP WORRYING! (This professional opinion is back by three academic degrees and one professional license…hehe). Brilliance, instead of falling into a deep depression and ruining your “Pretty.”…

    Call Your Sisters Forth

    Good Day Brilliance, I hope your space is filled with love, faith, hope, acceptance and purpose. This past weekend I had the honor of reconnecting to my “Genesis.” I define “Genesis” as my beginning, divine connections and the origin of my authentic space. While I was around some powerful women, it was revealed to me how important it is to be connected with women who want and can call you forth. If you surround yourself with women who are vested in you staying confused and stagnated you will more than likely never find your authentic self. One key element to developing your “Genesis” is truth. Those connected in your “Genesis”…
