We asked Adefolashade for Clues

Something that catalyzed your growth - besides working hard?

Finding myself has definitely been my superpower. I wish it was as simple as it is to say, but it has been a journey. The discovery that what we need is already inside of us is simply liberating. I love that I get to help teens and everyone within their ecosystem find and use their unique super powers, and own it early.

Taking action and studying the track those actions left behind helped me realize my genius. Putting myself in higher systems like communities where I was serving also made people spot my strengths and tell me. But studying my track record and the changes my gifts were creating was key to finding myself and coming into my power.

Everyone is truly powerful!

Something you're most proud of?

Hands down is the transformation I help parents achieve with their teens  within a very short spanx of time. 

It feels great and humbling that I’ve been given a gift that can change people’s lives. Parenting difficulty and regrets can be tough to deal with and being able to help parents flip that is precious. 

On Showing Up

Don’t be afraid of writing or rewriting your story. Be the lead in that story by taking daily, intentional actions. 

Believe in the beauty and transformation of your journey; that as you take strategic actions, you will not stay at the same spot. 

So be okay with your pace, and relish the joy of looking back and saying “ That was me, but see where I am now”.

Be true to your journey and by all means, enjoy it.

Worth Remembering

What you have is enough. Like a seed, it may need to be nurtured in the right environment and systems, but within that seed, is a full capacity and working mechanism to bloom and thrive just like you.
