To the First Clarity, Clients & Cash Graduates of 2015.

You know who usually gives commencement speeches?

People we see as inspirational or talented, someone unexpected with a message that brings tears to your eyes. It’s a hoopla, a remembrance of the struggles and victories you’ve faced while pushing through countless obstacles.

Yet, sometimes, these motivational speeches don’t resonate after we flip our tassels to the other side and toss our caps away, watching them intermingle in the air. By dinner, we’re thinking about the future again: the last chapter has closed. The fear comes back.

How can I apply every lesson I learned without my guide to remind me? Damn, I wish I would have been able to talk to them today.

That’s how it goes for me, at least. Because while it’s awesome to hear from someone with great success or an impeccable sense of humor, these people didn’t live through or feel the same as you, and – often – they’re quoting someone else, not even giving you their full experience. While the speaker might have gone through another course like yours, they didn’t sit next to you reading the same material or hearing the same conversations on conference calls.

Only you and me and the rest of the CCCers did that, gang.

Our last call was Wednesday April 8th, and I missed you the second we hung up. Some of you left kind messages in our group and others send me emails, yet there was no hoopla, no event or celebrations given from my end.

That’s simply because I needed a few days to process exactly what I wanted to say to you.

In 2013, Oprah spoke at a Harvard commencement.

“It doesn’t matter how far you might rise. At some point you are bound to stumble. … If you’re constantly pushing yourself higher … the law of averages, not to mention the Myth of Icarus, predicts that you will at some point fall. And when you do I want you to know this, remember this: There is no such thing as failure. Failure is just life trying to move us in another direction.”

Maybe you were behind in the program for the majority of it. Maybe you’re still working on clearing blocks. Shit, maybe you resigned yourself to “failing” CCC long before this email made it to you. If there is one thing I want you take from your entire experience with me, it’s that your past performance can’t determine your future unless you stop trying.

No matter how impossible something feels, how long the road appears before you, or how much money you’re going to have to come up with to take your business to the next level, know the Universe has your back. That your effort doesn’t go unnoticed. That not only are the big U and CCC alum there to remind you you’ve got this, but so am I.

You might reach a breaking point again. You might change your entire business model (I did). But that doesn’t matter as much as choosing to continue down the path, to face the fear and keep going.

CCC was designed so that you could use it over and over again, even when you fall.

What I’ve seen of each of you – your determination and bravery, your authenticity and bravery – prove to me this program worked for you, even if you haven’t realized it yet.

I’ve done a lot of things in my career. I’ve won awards in many areas of my life, but the most rewarding moment comes from completing the first round of CCC and knowing that you, my friends, are heading exactly where you’re supposed to be.

What a gift you’ve given me in seeing you succeed.

Thank you for being a part of my journey too.

    Thank you for posting this Becky. I’m so touched! I was so scared signing up and whilst the road is still hard at times CCC has been a once in a lifetime experience. The women and Sean who have come together as a group under your guidance have helped me in so many ways. I love your style and honesty and am forever grateful that somehow fate brought me here before I’d really even thought about joining an entrepreneur group on Facebook. The big U definitely had my back before I realised. X

    Thank you Becky, for all that you have done for me, for all that you are, and for all that you have bought to this world.

    The course helped me on so many levels, business, mindset, marketing and I think most of all the essence behind the course. The soul that you encapsulated within, beyond and beyond. Your soul, your unique voice.

    You taught me not only business but how to create MY business, MY way, with MY voice.

    The course was… well… beyond great. You honestly have set high standards that I will hold myself too and that I will look for in others.

    The course was raw, authentic and right to the point.

    I am grateful for the seen and unseen things that this course and you have given me.

    Thank you,
