Often, people spend a lot of time learning about relationship strategies, investment plans, and career tactics, hoping to create a life that honors their deepest desires and goals. But what they don’t learn enough about is themselves.
They don’t learn what excites their souls, what ignites their hearts, or what delights their bodies.
They don’t learn how to resist peer pressure, restore self-integrity, or reset their goals.
Some people rarely do the reflective work required to figure out how to live holistically and authentically. As a result, they follow outdated scripts, somebody else’s research, or pre-packaged life plans that don’t align with their innate strengths, dreams, or lived realities.
Some people even copy what’s popular, not appreciating that they must customize everything they learn because they are a divine design. They are unique treasures full of great promise and a unique purpose.
Prayerfully, I am learning to accept and embody MORE of my truth, knowing that I may lose money, friends, and followers.
And as I learn more about myself, I am sharing and living my truth fearlessly and unapologetically. I am not hiding what I believe, especially when it comes to justice and equity. Yes, doing so is extremely risky, but living your truth and being free always comes with substantial risks and losses.
But since I know that fulfillment and peace are on the other side of truth, I take more risks, knowing that my truth will set me free and free others.
My truth will ensure that I stay well, whole, and worthy of everything God has for me.
My truth will help me walk in clarity, stand in courage, and speak with authority.
To me, honoring my truth is crucial to preserving my integrity, gifts, and talents. And most of all, honoring who I am ensures that I avoid or don’t invest in organizations or communities that don’t value my humanity or contributions.
This month, I am focusing on a few critical questions to support my clients. I am asking:
- How well do you know YOUR needs?
- What lights YOU up?
- What tickles YOUR fancy?
- What steals YOUR joy, sleep, peace, and power?
- What values guide and galvanize YOU?
- What would help you tell yourself and others the truth about who you are, what you want, or what you feel called to do?
- What role is fear currently playing in your life?
The questions are complex, but life becomes less complicated when we accept the truth about ourselves. Why? The truth unlocks, reveals, and optimizes who we are; it’s the key to unlocking vital doors in our lives.
I’m excited to share more about the power of knowing YOURSELF in my high-touch communities, Rooted To Rise, and I Dare To Be Me. If you are a leader, visionary, and truth-seeker who dares to be more of yourself, join us.
Remember, success is never about knowing more stuff; success is about knowing more SELF!
Let’s Dare To SOAR HIGHER as we learn more about ourselves so we can be free.
