Sometimes clients come to me and the unexpected happens. They open up in ways they never expected.

The Masks We Wear - Leadership

Understandably, this can be both shocking and overwhelming because they experience themselves for the first time in a way that they have been typically hiding from the world. It takes courage and a certain degree of risk to drop the mask you have been showing the world every day and allow others to see your true self. On the other side, for me, it is always beautiful to witness it in my clients.

What strikes me in situations such as these is that strong desire to stay and fight for a belief that clearly hinders not just their position at work, but also more importantly, their physical and mental wellbeing. By their own admission and assessment, they were all on the brink of a breakdown. They were so determined to hold onto a position and fight to “show everyone” they were “worth it.” Does this sound familiar? It happens too often. Some people want to continue their fight from what has happened in their past, while they choose to ignore the present.

As our discussions grew greater in depth, it was clear that healing needed to take place. We discussed the process and what would be needed to succeed. I gained agreement. Together, we reconfirmed the following day that this was the “right” thing to do. It was what was needed. We began, only to have our session begin and end with an utter refusal to move forward. Which is fine. I honor one’s own wisdom in their knowing.

What I was left with was this. We can absolutely KNOW in our heart what we need. We can agree that this IS the RIGHT path. We can say we commit. BUT, here is the truth:

Without courage to take action on our knowing, we destroy one very critical element in our beingness–our worth.

You see, our KNOWING is ours and ours alone. This particular client came to me wanting to learn to know how he knew. Step by step he experienced the strength, resolve, and power of his knowing. And yet, when faced with action in the direction of his knowing, completely diminished his self-worth.

The heart never lies. The heart knows you in your truth. It’s the mind that tells you all those lies. You can’t do it. It’s not the right time. I need more money. I need more information. I need, I need, I need. The heart knows that all is well right where you are–in perfection. And, completely worthy.


Tips of the day:

  1. Listen to your heart.
  2. Muster the courage to follow your knowing. If you are not sure of yourself, the only way to know for sure is to follow your knowing.

Blissful love to you and knowing yourself in your knowing.

Live. Love. Thrive.
