Good Morning FGB Community.
This morning I am writing about a topic that is hard to discuss because a part of it comes from something we can not completely understand or explain. But I am going to do my best to attempt this discuss, bear with me if you will.
Each morning I spend time on LinkedIn and each day I put up a post of words of wisdom I have found searching the internet. I post these words of wisdom for two reasons, I find motivation in the words myself and I find inspiration in helping others. When I first started putting out these posts on linkedin I felt silly. I thought: Wow, this is cheesy. Who wants to see the memes I think speak to me on that day? Why would anyone care what I have to say? But another part of me, a voice in my head said do it, people have always told you you are good leader, believe them you are, and do it. Take the risk, it's ok to be vulnerable, have faith and you will find you are on the right path for your journey. While I was on linkedin this morning, one of my contacts reached out to me and said thank you for your posts, I really needed that this morning. She and I started a conversation and she is having a really tough time in her life. Feeling as though nothing is working out, she is not getting any opportunities, she has done nothing wrong to deserve this hand in life and feeling like she should give up. I shared with her my thoughts, on trust, people, power in being alone, faith in life. I can only hope that I helped her. For no one should feel alone and to doubt their own amazing uniqueness and abilities to the point that they self sabotage. When we get wrapped up in the negativity we dig our heels in against our journey and things seems to always get worse. If you put your faith into the things we cannot explain the resistance always seems to subside and our journey opens back up to bring us where we are supposed to be. The place we are supposed to be is not typically what we thought. But always better than we imagined. Part of our challenge in our lives and in our careers is to have faith, be vulnerable, challenge yourself and take on your failure as a stepping stone to your successes. On my journey I have found an internal struggle against myself. I struggle with my own inner voice. A year and a half ago, after I left a toxic work environment, I started a new relationship with that inner voice. I stopped arguing with that inner voice so much. I stopped giving that inner voice energy and just let the thoughts come in and pass by. Yoga... The lessons about our mind and what it does to us resonates with me. I started to be present in life instead of trying to control life. When I visualize this concept it is as if I am lifting my feet off the ground and riding a wave of light/energy and letting that guide me through my path for my career and for my life. When I lift up my feet and let this wave guide me then the inner voice is also let go because I am not giving energy to the thoughts but letting them pass by. The path is still not without bumps and bruises when you fall off, but the reward to pick up your feet and stop the resistance is amazing. That is what this ride feels like to me, if you pick up your feet then you are no longer digging in and causing resistance against your journey. Be from a place of love and even during the hard times everything seems to fall into place. Be true to yourself.
