Sir Winston Churchill said, “Courage is what it takes to stand up and speak; Courage is also what it takes to sit down and listen.”
I know this to be true in my bones. I’ve experienced it myself and I’ve seen it in clients over the past 15 years. They step into this kind of courage as they find their voice and allow themselves to be seen.
How can we practice this kind of courage?
How do we know when it’s time to speak and when it’s time to choose silence?
We can’t get there by listening to the “shoulds” or by seeking someone else’s approval.
We get there by listening deep within ourselves and speaking from there.
Our Soul Suckers tell us to speak or be silent based on what we *imagine* others might think of us.
On the other hand, when we connect to our inner wisdom, we know when to speak and when to choose silence from an empowered place.
When we set an intention based in service, we create the space for our soul’s voice to come through.
We SOURCE the loving voice within.
When we do that, we’re speaking (and choosing silence) for the sake of something – and others feel that in their bones.
With passion & love,
