  • For thousands of years women around the world have suffered from what is called Cleopatra's

  • CurseTM.

  • When you hear my name 'Cleopatra, Last Pharaoh of ancient Egypt', what comes to mind? Some

  • might saybeauty” “power” “a Love affair with Julius Caesar” “a love affair

  • with Mark Antony” “a mysterious death”…

  • Did you know that I spoke 9 languages fluently?After 300 years of Greeks controlling the Egyptian

  • thrown I was the only one to ever make the effort to learn the local language to earn

  • loyalty and love? I was a powerful strategist with a genius

  • mind running my country like a modern CEO? I controlled more money than all the Forbes

  • billionaires combined?

  • Most people don't. And the reason they don't is because the

  • victors MALE roman historians wrote my his-story.It was politically less dangerous to create the

  • image of me as a powerful sensual temptress -- than admitting my power and brilliance.

  • Cleopatra's Cursewas born! Since then power for women was conceived as something

  • negative and dangerous for their reputation, femininity and life!

  • What does that all have to do with you my modern sisters?

  • Everything!

  • I'm watching youHow can it be that women still make up less than 15% of top positions

  • in corporations and only 22% of all national parliamentarians world-wide?

  • Don't you ever wonder why -- despite the fact that you all are brilliant, highly educated

  • and committedso many of you struggle to live your full potential in all areas of

  • life? Officially I might be dead for over 2000 years.

  • But my spirit lives on.I'm still ALIVE in the brain of all living women.

  • How that is possible? I let Sylvia, my German sister and Lady with the Brain, explain to

  • you.

  • (Taking wig and neckless off) I grew up in Germany as a single child with

  • parents who loved me dearly. Like millions of Germans of their generation, they were

  • inside their adult bodies psychologically, still traumatized children from the second

  • World War.

  • I was a so-calledgifted childand always the best in class through school. Whenever

  • I came home with the record card papers showing top-grades, my father would look down on it,

  • then up straight into my eyes with this sincere expression of worryand sometimes even

  • panic. Then he would shake his head in pain, “Oh honey. You are way too intelligent.

  • You will never find a husband!”

  • Having learned from my mother that the most important job of every women is to find a

  • husband by the age of 25…. I felt doomed. Surely enough all my first admirers and later

  • lovers and 2 fiancées leaving me proved my father to be right.

  • In my early 30s, after TWO university degrees, I was a rising star in Germany inside the

  • new professional field of executive coaching. I worked in an established consulting company,

  • yet I was the only woman on the team. Interestingly the top-assignments started pouring in right

  • AFTER my wedding and I asked the CEO of that consulting-company: “Hey, why is that, that

  • suddenly since I wear this ring, I get all these assignments you refused to give me before?”

  • His answer: “When you were young, beautiful and single you were considered too much of

  • a threat for our top-executives clients. Now being married you are not any longer a threat

  • for them.”

  • Cleopatra's Curse in full swing!In my understanding her curse is a list of beliefs like:

  • It's dangerous for a woman to be successful.” “When a woman stands up and speaks her truth,

  • she might get attacked or killed.” “When a woman makes more money than anyone

  • else in her company or advances her career with speed the only answer is 'she slept

  • her way to the top'.”

  • All these beliefs are strong and alive in so many people's brains today.

  • When a female executive designs her career plan or a business woman maps out her product

  • line she uses mainly her conscious mind. WHERE exactly IS that?

  • Raise your right hand like this and touch gently your forehead. What you sense behind

  • your skin, thin layer of flesh and the scull is your neo-cortex. The part of your brain

  • which is the youngest from an evolutionary perspective and also the youngest in your

  • individual development. It's finished developing at the end of your puberty around your 24th

  • birthday. You can put your hand down now.The neo-cortex makes decisions on conscious goals,

  • creates strategies and designs plans. It is able to distinguish incoming information and

  • choses what to believe or what to dismiss.

  • This decision-making neo-cortex is not fully developed when we are children! Raise your

  • hand again and touch the BACK of your head, above your neck, and gently feel what's

  • beneath your hand. This much bigger and older part of your brain is the seat of your SUBconscious

  • mind. This subconscious mind is like a sponge. It takes in EVERYTHING. It doesn't distinguish

  • between 'good for you information' or 'not good for you information.' Everything

  • you ever thought, ever felt, ever experienced, the environment you were born into, parents,

  • family, culture is deeply imprinted into your subconscious mind. Including the beliefs of

  • our collective sub-consciousness as women! Here is the place where Cleopatra is still

  • alive and strong!

  • How does all that show up in our life TODAY? A woman stands here in her current situation

  • and she feels her potential. She longs to have more impact. More money. A bigger team.

  • A wider reach. She has conscious goals and dreams. So she lays out her conscious plans

  • and decides to move forward towards her dreams. But her ego, as part of her sub-conscious

  • mind, which is committed to her SAFETY, says: “NOOOOO!”

  • Stay here.” “That's is dangerous!” “They might kill you!” “And if they

  • don't kill you -- you will lose your love.” I experienced that dynamic again and again:

  • for example my revenue after years of growth plateauing after getting married, or me asking

  • for lower coaching fees than competitors, or trusting other people's advice more than

  • my intuition losing a ton of money. The key here -- is to understand that our

  • ego -- and its our success sabotaging strategies -- is NOT our enemy! Our EGO is our strongest

  • partner inside our brain committed to our safety. Our ego got developed when we were

  • cute little girls without a mature neo-cortex to make appropriate decisions for us. The

  • intentions of our ego are always good. Just its strategies are completely outdated and

  • destructive! I repeat: Your ego is not your enemy. It is

  • your most powerful ally when you manage it correctly.

  • As an example, when a perfectly prepared, brilliant woman starts to sweat and stumbles

  • while speaking in public, it's her ego kicking in, trying to keep her safe!

  • In order to change that -- collectively we have to do what we are doing here today: talking

  • about it! Talking about these taboos. Meeting at a public leadership conference and acknowledging

  • honestly our intimate and most private fears. Because they are not only Cleopatra's Curse,

  • they got reinforced by 300 years of witch-hunts in Europe where hundreds of thousands of women

  • lost their lives!

  • These women were not cutesy little naïve girls. No, they were the business women, the

  • widows and the wise medicine women and shamans! They were often wealthy and financially independent.

  • They were intelligent. They traded. They taught. They healed others.

  • Can you imagine how 300 years of thousands of women being tortured and killed leaves

  • an imprint on our female collective subconscious mind? (This might be one of the sentences

  • I forgot. Need to re-listen to my own SUE-Talk. I have a bad audio-file on my Iphone.)

  • Generations of generations of mothers and fathers in Europe told their daughters:

  • Psst, don't tell them that you can read and write.”

  • Hide! Make yourself small! Hide!” “Be seen as pleasant to look at but not

  • heard as intelligent.”

  • We all are good daughters. With the help of our ego we make sure to stay safe which means

  • inside our old comfort-zones of role-plays, careers and life-style designs. My mother

  • 78 – still suffers from WWII effects in the form of anxiety and depression attacks.

  • She never felt for just one moment in her life that she is fully in charge owning her

  • power. My passion to empower women is fueled by her pain about her wasted potential

  • Are you ready to step into your power? Are you committed to live your full potential?

  • Are you ready to turn your ego into a powerful ally?

  • Ladies, please stand up now …..and put your hand on your heart. Repeat loud after me:

  • “I am powerful.” “I am powerful.” “It is safe for me to be powerful.” “It

  • is safe for me to be powerful.” “I am successful.” “I am successful.”

  • It is safe for me to be successful.” “It is safe for me to be successful.”

  • Thank you. Be seated.

  • I invite you to repeat these 4 sentences every morning in your bathroom while looking into

  • your own eyes in a mirror for 90 days -- and before any challenging meeting where you want

  • to show up as a powerful leader.

  • When your ego starts believing that you are safe, it turns all the energy it invested

  • to keep you small into the energy INSTEAD to move you towards your goals and dreams!

  • Please share these statements with as many women as possible, so that TOGETHER we collectively

  • rewire our brains, break Cleopatra's Curse and enjoy being SUE - Successful Unstoppable

  • and Empowered! Thank you.
