“It is not in the stars to hold our destiny, but in ourselves.” ~ William Shakespeare
Often, we convince ourselves that if things outside of ourselves change, we would be different, content and have what we need. While it is true, we live as a part of a larger system which often influences a lot of our personal experiences; our internal landscape is what ultimately determines our experience of the external one. And, often what appears to be masked as external obstacles in our life are really internal ones. We hold the power within ourselves to create our own destiny. And when we fully own and utilize this power, we are poised for success with endless possibilities.
“Knowledge is power.” ~Sir Francis Bacon
As women, we are often not consciously aware of how our responses to systemic barriers and societal norms cause us to sabotage ourselves into colluding with systems that are not always structured to promote our success and well-being. Gaining knowledge and insight increases our self-awareness, providing us with an opportunity to make conscious choices and decisions which lead to the desired outcomes in our work, life and relationships.
“When we know better, we do better.” ~Maya Angelou
At Mahoghany, we believe, when we know better, we can do better. Knowledge is indeed power, but when we gain this power, we then have a choice as to how we want to use it, or what we want to do with it. So, the power lies not only in having additional knowledge, but also in our choice of how we use it. We believe when you use this knowledge to your advantage, you are then equipped to expand your options, and better support you in making informed decisions that positively impact your future.
“Your beliefs pave your way to success or block you.” ~Marsha Sinetar
At Mahoghany, we believe success is driven from the inside-out. This is why our fundamental approach focuses on helping you increase self-awareness and sharpen your insight. Because when we truly are in touch with who we are and grounded in our intrinsic beliefs and values, through this knowledge and understanding, we are empowered to better recognize our extrinsic value as well, which influences how we view ourselves, our life, relationships and the world. In this way, we are well positioned to effect the personal changes needed to actualize our goals and aspirations.
Our guiding principles are fundamental to the way we do business, baked into our program development and defines how we always strive to operate. We strongly believe adopting these principles and putting them into practice facilitates internal shifts and drives purposeful behavior which creates a roadmap for success.
