I’d pat myself on the back for being a good listener. I could sit here for hours and hours to listen. Because I love getting to know people.
What I found to be SUUUUUUUUPER difficult for me is when tables are turned and I get to share about myself.
The last time I was discussing the next directions for my business with my sister, I remember her asking me how I felt about an opportunity that had presented itself. And I instinctively went, “Wait, let me think.” I start to rationalise and pull on all the frameworks that I know of to organise my thoughts. #truestory
It’s very hard for me to drop into my heart and share with my authentic self.
Today, when I want to tune into how I feel, I’d take a few deep breaths and get mindful of the space. Then, I’d listen to myself with a quiet mind.
I feel the very first sensations that come out.
I tune in.
I’d like you to try doing the same. Without rationalising, reasoning and regurgitating, let your authentic self out.
Speak from your heart, and only from your heart.
