I’m a personal development junkie. Personal growth? I’m all about that too.
Learning and growing is fantastic …
But that doesn’t mean you’ve begun to recognize your true power, just what you’re capable of, how powerfully your unique gifts and talents can serve in your own life and in the lives of others, or that … even if you have begin to recognize it, that you’ve decided to step all the way into it and stand firmly in it.
How do you get there?
One necessity … you gotta be willing to take a good hard look in the mirror and get real with yourself. Personal discovery is required for development, or even simply embracing, of your own personal power. But it does not work if you’re lying to yourself, or rationalizing, when you look in that mirror of yours.
Personal discovery requires being radically honest, ideally while releasing judgement, though that part can certainly take some practice too.
Because it’s insanely tough to hear the whispers of your heart, your spirit, if you’re constantly denying, to yourself, who you truly are, what it is you’re all about, what it is you really want to do, what gifts you would enjoy bringing to the world every day.
The problem is, we often think that all those things aren’t important … or that no on else would value it … or maybe even that it’s selfish to pursue because it feels like it’s just all about you.
That belief, that thought, trips up a lot of people. Including me. But now that I understand how untrue it is, it’s like a whole new world has opened up … again 🙂
Same thing happened when I realized that I could allow my children to learn and grow in their own way, in their own time … really, truly honoring their unique design and their unique journey … and that families were already actually doing that and it’s a valid approach to learning and living this life <3
My hope is that you get to feel that in your life, in your business, in your leadership, in your mission, in whatever it is that matters to you … too.
Lots of love,
