Throughout your life, everyone you cross paths with will have an opinion or comment, idea or suggestion that has the potential to completely alter your life. Sometimes, this can be a push in the right direction. Other times, it can be a complete derailment of this train we call life. The good news is that we are all born with an amazing gift: Our inner voice. Call it your gut feeling, hour higher-self, your intuition, or anything else you wish to call it. We all have it and we are all free to use it. To sweeten the deal, the more we use it, the better we get at using it.
Being true to yourself means that you’re able to take in the input of others, good or bad, and make a clear decision as to whether this will serve you or not. You are free to choose whether you adopt or reject the idea or opinion, based on what your truth is. Here is an example: I am a great physical therapist and get so many fantastic comments from all my patients, whether they come for massage, for the Aromatouch® technique or just a sore back that needs healing. As much as I love healing people with touch, my heart is calling me to changing lives through coaching. So, I am following my heart and focusing on where it’s guiding me.
Your heart won’t steer you wrong. It will always be a clear yes or no. Yes: you feel good about the idea, it calls to you, it excites you. No: you get an uneasy feeling in your gut, you feel unsure about the idea, you are not so tempted by it.
The best advice I can give you about being true to yourself is this: Get your head out of the way, don’t over analyze anything’ as a matter of fact, don’t analyze anything. Listen to your heart and you are good to go!
