It's OK for you to stand in your truth. In fact, it's your responsibility to do so.
Because not only are you being true to YOU, which is your life's purpose, you're also empowering others to do the same; you're leading by example.
So many of my conversations with clients are around giving them permission to speak their truth.
To ask for what they truly want, no matter how vulnerable it makes them feel.
To set a boundary with someone clearly without being an asshole.
To speak their truth with compassionate conviction even if it means someone else feels offended or hurt, and stick with it, because as long as you are being soully truthful and not ego-driven, your truth is yours, and how someone else responds is usually about their own ego feeling wounded.
To receive, openly, with gratitude and ease, what is offered to them; help, money, love, compliments, miracles.
To forgive, because the REAL you knows that this will set you free and empower your to be even MORE in your truth, rather than your ego being stubborn and those hurts keeping you playing small, and playing the victim.
You can be as much a victim of your life, your circumstances, your past, your present, your future, your partner, your job, your money story, your body, whatever it is - as you like.
You can equally be the most powerful change agent, creator, and manifestor of your life, your circumstances, your past, your present, your future, your partner, your job, your money story, your body, whatever - as you like.
You can't change what happened in the past - but you CAN change how you see it, and use it to empower yourself NOW and every day forward.
Your responsibility is ALWAYS first and foremost to being true to YOU. It's not selfish - it's how you are the best version of yourself everyday, and in doing so, you are a better entrepreneur, athlete, partner, lover, employee, boss, friend, parent, sibling, coach...HUMAN.
How can you stand in your truth, speak your truth, and be a light that empowers others to do the same, starting today?
