Hi friends, how are you? I was just reading a post by a friend who asked her 4 year old "How did did I get to be the mom of the most beautiful girl in the world?" answer: "I was born" Check out mom Jozie Jennings and her amazing photography and senegence products. What confidence. Don't you wish you could speak up like that? Last week I asked you to ask for how you want to celebrate Valentine's. Did you? Did you make a plan? Did you speak up? If not, why not? In my coaching I hear all kinds of answers. I know for myself, I didn't speak up for the longest time because I was afraid of one thing or another. So are my clients. They are afraid. afraid of repercussions afraid of not being understood afraid of being laughed at afraid of saying the wrong thing Fear is always the underlying factor. What if you were more afraid of staying where you are and not speaking up? Then you would be motivated. Wouldn't you? Its hard to take the first step. I get it. It's hard to leave your comfort zone, even if the comfort zone is extremely uncomfortable. There's a way to speak up without criticizing or shaming the other people involved. I can teach you how. It's a skill you can learn. Basically you focus on yourself. Always. What is my truth? What do I want? What is my goal? How do I want to show up? What would love do? Your words have a much better chance to be heard if they come from a place of calm and confidence. And that can be build! Just think: Do you want to hear from somebody who is yelling and angry and calling you names? Or do you listen up when someone speaks kindly, clearly and firmly? How can you make your words the most effective? More on this next week. And yes, from now on it will go out Thursdays in the evening. PS: Message me for a free consult to start speaking your truth.
You are loved. Deeply loved. Loved beyond measure.
