Most of us weren't taught how to effectively express our emotions, wants or opinions.
What we did learn (way too young) was how to survive.
We learned that the world is a hard, scary place. And we have to seek security.
We lost faith in any good (though we really want to believe there is good).
We thought dreams, doing things for the love, and being creative was not in the cards for us.
We thought joy and peace would come once we had the job, the house, the [fill in the blank]. Until we realized, there's something missing. There must be more...
We believe that it's up to us to make sure everything is good and orderly, because, in reality, no one has ever really had our back. Even if it means sticking with something even if you hate it.
It's always been you against the world. And it sucks to feel that way all the time. In fact, it feels lonely.
Unfortunately, those beliefs (that strong shell you have) created some destructive patterns.
- Passive-Aggressive Behavior- Holding your feelings in but letting them out in not-so-obvious ways (think grumpy, stubborn, sarcastic, or go on strike from doing the dishes).
- Not Being True to Yourself- Keeping your true feelings, needs, or opinions in. Or waiting until you’re so frustrated that you become depressed or explode, ultimately hurting trust and relationships.
- Fear of Walking Away from Things Because they Bring Security
- Dealing With Problems Alone
- The list goes on...
When you learn to keep it real, speak your truth, and claim your space by creating clear intentions, your life changes.
When you can express your needs with ease and grace, joy and satisfaction spread into every part of your life.
In fact, this is a huge secret that most wildly successful people aren't sharing!
Guess what? Emotional intelligence is how they got to the top. But since it still seems foreign to most, they don't publicly admit it.
Being aware of, in control of, and freely expressing your emotions are a game-changer in life and business.
When you can keep your cool during hard times, there's seriously no stopping you.
And I don't mean cool on the outside but bursting on the inside.
I mean truly feeling at ease, knowing that it's going to be okay, trusting that you are going to be okay - down to your bones.
Feeling SO GOOD you STEP OUT OF THE SIDELINES and INTO THE LIMELIGHT. Owning it. While being genuine and graceful.
And to get there, the first step is to realize that YOU'RE NOT UPSET OR HELD BACK FOR THE REASONS YOU THINK YOU ARE. You're dealing with symptoms of not living from a place of inner peace.
This is what you'll uncover through this journey together.
