Your biggest fear, your greatest message

Standard

What’s true for me today is …

My biggest fear is my greatest message.

I wish I could take credit for this idea, but it’s something the speaker said in a teleconference I hosted earlier today. She was talking about fear in the context of business — in specific, how some people are afraid to start new health consulting businesses because they think/feel they need to be perfect people with perfect habits, that their clients will expect it, and so they do nothing.

Turns out, it’s not true. People like talking to people they relate to, and the more you share your story, your experience, the easier you are to relate to. That’s how your biggest fear can be your greatest message;  the more you are willing to share your fear with others, the more opportunity you have to form meaningful conversations, relationships, and connections with other.

Don’t know about you, but I like it – makes fear seem useful.

So the question is, what is your biggest fear and how will share it with others?

Personally, not sure. The first thing that comes to mind is writing – do I write enough to be successful (whatever “successful” means; a whole other conversation)? Hmmm … Looking forward to sharing more on this.

One-week check in

What’s true for me today is …

It’s been about a week since I started this blog and I am happy–and a bit surprised–to see that I have managed to post something new almost every day.

Several people have been encouraging me to work on a project like this for the past few years, but I put it off, made an excuse, couldn’t make up my mind what to write about. Silly really. I was just a bit squeamish about putting my ideas “out there” in such a permanent way. And while I can’t say I am over that entirely, so far so good. I’ve thought of something to say every day and, perhaps more importantly, I posted it.

It’s a bit inscruitable what we decide to focus on, or worry about, in the time we can just be having fun with what it is we are doing. Mysterious, really.

What’s true for me today is, I am very happy to be here, in this moment, writing and sharing this blog with you, and I invite you (always) to leave a comment and post what’s true for you today.

About this blog …

Standard

Sometimes things seem to change quickly, sometimes glacially. I have been feeling more the tortoise than the hare lately.

However, I have also decided that though I may not feel it, though however imperceptible it made be, things are–in fact–changing all the time. My logical mind tells me this. My heart, hmmmm …. working to catch up.

To do that, I have decided to look at the small, simple truths I think and feel on a daily basis because: #1 I suspect it may be very entertaining (and I like laughing) and; #2 how better “to be” in my daily life than to immerse myself in the tidbit details of how I actually live.

That’s what this blog is about–the details–and a daily (at least frequent) response to the simple prompt: What’s true for me today is _________________.

I invite you to comment on anything that rings true for you AND to post your own response(s) to the prompt. I look forward to sharing this daily writing practice, daily experience with you.
