We all have this voice within us that plants ideas, shares dreams and helps guide us. This voice while coachable to be stronger in most of us is nothing more than a whisper. It’s been so unsupported, unvalidated and in some cases all together silenced that it doesn’t always know when or how to move us anymore.
There was a time when my voice was nothing but a whisper. It sent me dreams and wishes but I actioned nothing. I felt small and powerless. I acted more selfishly and with less perspective. As a result I got stuck in this perpetual cycle of monotony. Life was bleh, I was average and my life was mediocre. This wasn’t what I had envisioned my life would be like.
But how to escape the this pit of a life? How do I change? How do I evolve into the person I really want to be and have the life I really want to live?
Start saying YES when you usually say NO.
Taking risks was one of my first steps towards validating my inner-voice. Each time I dug deep to hear that tiny whisper I honoured myself. Each time I actioned a thought, created and followed through on a goal I got stronger. Over time my inner-voice became louder.
My inner-voice is so loud that taking risks today is almost second nature. I’m almost as willing to go the extra mile, learn a new skill, try something new and stretch myself into the person I want to be that I can’t imagine no longer being true to that inner-voice.
Who I am today is truly driven by my mind, body and soul being in alignment. Who would’ve thought it would stem from a simple yes instead of a no?
Share a time you said yes instead of no and it changed your life.
This is sounds so scary to me but I totally see myself in your description of your past self! I’ve been saying there’s got to be more to life than this. I can totally see how it would be hard at first but would get easier and more fun! Thanks for the reminder and great blog Jordanna :o)
Hi Julie I couldn’t agree more. The first time you take risks and begin to explore that side of empowerment it’s pretty scary. It can downright make you want to run back the other way. But that’s when you can really begin to trust yourself which is so incredibly powerful. Can’t wait to hear what you’ll do!
Jordanna, having been a part of the beginning of your journey I’m truly proud of how far you’ve come. You become the person I always knew you were. It’s awesome to see.
Kim – Thank you so much for your coaching and guidance. It truly impacted my entire being and forever altered my path. I hope you’re having the most amazing vacation.
