Yesterday I spoke up during a group call. I allowed my gut vision for someone else to come into play. And then…wait for it…I articulated it clearly, specifically and did not pull any punches; being brutally honest and communicating from my core. This gentleman envisions himself speaking in front of people – inspiring many with his words. He truly has so much to share with the world. HIS story is very powerful and would touch many. It touched me.
I passionately suggested he stop holding back waiting for everything to be perfect. Suggested he share now via blogging – which generates a following – which results in the speaking engagements he sees. He thanked the group for our words, encouragement and direction.
So for the last 24 hours I have been feeling really good. I am hopeful he will follow our encouragement and if he does I have played my part with my words.
Interestingly I’m just realizing this….seriously….as I type….I gave him the same advice I need to be giving myself. Whoa this whole blog just shifted.
So…the advice I need to take is that I have much to offer. My stories. My struggles. My ability to adjust and grow and learn. Combined with my ability to share and articulate the vision…these are within me NOW. I do not need to wait until something huge has shifted to take my stand. I need only embrace what I already have at my disposal and the rest will come. I have something to offer and what I say has the ability to help others. I need not wait.
Apparently I’m a little slow on the uptake. I’m only now connecting the dots. LOLAMS – Laugh Out Loud At MySelf
Shift back to earlier this morning – I received an email from an organization hosting “A Soul Based Retreat Workshop for Entrepreneurs” – they accepting my proposed session. I will be speaking at this retreat in a few months!
I found me!
Now THAT was fun! I typed a heading. Then had an idea in my head. Once I started typing it just shifted, rearranging itself into the above post. Thank you for sticking with me on this one.
