Speak Up

August 4, 2014

images… or no one will EVER hear you.

Our words are extremely powerful, yet we do not know how to use them. Generally speaking, we stuff them down and don’t say what we really want to say for fear of what others will think of us.

Your work is to be able to be honest with yourself and then honestly communicate yourself to others. You don’t win any points in life by holding back and not speaking your mind. When you hold back, you become a pawn in someone else’s play. And you are not here to live out someone else’s drama.

You are here to live YOUR PLAY, no one else’s. No one loses but you when you choose to NOT express yourself adequately. Now that does not mean to unleash fury onto people but it does expect that you speak your mind kindly, constructively and compassionately. When you can do that, you have done all you can to ensure a positive outcome in your own play.

The words we use can either make or break us. But the words we DON’T USE, never have the chance to help us.

Aren’t you tired of censoring yourself? Your feelings are important and your expression of your emotions leads to your evolution, so start talking. Your world cannot change around you if you are not communicating with others. After all, people are not mind readers and it is not their job to try and guess how you are feeling. It is your job to express yourself kindly, constructively and compassionately (without censorship) – then your work is done. You only get one life (this time around), don’t waste it holding your tongue. Things don’t get better by holding your tongue; they get better through clear, kind and constructive communication.

When You Walk With Your Head Down

… you walk into walls. It’s common sense. When you’re not looking where you’re going, you’re most likely going to end up somewhere you don’t want to be. Most of us sleepwalk our way through our lives — running the mouse wheel of life. We are so busy trying to make a living that we […]

It’s Not About Making The Right Choice

… it’s about accepting the choice you’ve already made. Our life’s path is made up of choices and there are no mistakes when it comes to making choices, because there are no right or wrong choices, there are only different choices. Don’t get caught up in the choice you’ve made – make it and move on. […]

Looking Back to the Past

… is only helpful to the extent it allows you to move forward into your future.  If it doesn’t, it keeps you back. Your life is only ever in front of you, never behind you. The past can be an informative tool if we don’t get trapped in it. If you want to uncover the […]

A Mid-life Crisis

… requires a mid-course correction. A mid-life crisis can happen at any age, but the wisdom here is that the secret to healing it, is in the way we define it. Life naturally has its ups and downs, and life is constantly asking you to define who you are in relationship to it. You’re never […]

When You’re in the Flow

… everything moves with you. And when you are not, nothing works. When you are in the flow of your life – flowing downstream — everything flows along side you. When you are out of that flow – pushing upstream — things are much more difficult. How do you know the difference? Ask yourself how […]
