Your fear and freedom is in self expression

Happy Thursday!

I appreciate you and the challenges we all face every day in being our best selves. This week's post is an inventory challenge for you to gain immediate clarity on your current relationship with fear around self expression.

Fear has this tendency and ability to disguise itself, even from you, but it is easily identifiable for those who are willing to ask the right questions and find and act upon the honest answers that they find.

If you answer these questions and look for where you can act on them, you can experience some of the potential joy of personal freedom immediately.

I am not perfect or claim to have nailed everything, but I have set an intention based on a desire to break through my own barriers and to build my impact and community of like minded purpose driven people that means I experience a skilling up, what I call 'layer drops' as I continuously strive and fail to be my best self. In fact, the more I fail, the more I win.

I want to share with you a lesson I am learning clearly with my most successful and committed high performance clients about the fear and freedom in self expression.

Let me start with a question - how comfortable are you in fully expressing yourself?

Let's think about this in your professional life and personal life and see what you can learn and activate today to move towards the joy and pride of personal freedom.

Your task here is to hunt down your fears and act on them to step into freedom from them immediately.

With all of these questions, don't let yourself off the hook with vague answers, demand specific answers based on clear action that you are fully engaged in today and every day as a habit. Ask yourself to see the evidence... Always ask, how do you know?

You could also score yourself on each answer out of 10 and every score below an 8, go to work on.

Professional expression.

  • How clearly and frequently do you express what you really want in terms of your ambitions for yourself, your team and/or your company internally with your team?
  • How clearly and frequently do you express what you really think and feel about the performance and efforts of your team and/or your company with a view to improving and appreciating their challenges and efforts?
  • What about externally, how clearly and frequently do you express what you really want in terms of your ambitions for yourself, your team/and or your company to your clients? 
  • What about on social media platforms where there are people waiting to be engaged, how frequently and clearly are you engaging there in your own authentic voice?
  • How clearly does your office space communicate your dreams, ambitions and beliefs without you being in it? Are there posters or quotes on your walls that mean something to you that make it clear who you are and what you're about?

Personal expression.

  • How clearly and frequently are you expressing and reinforcing the belief to your own self about what you really want in terms of your ambitions?
  • How clearly and frequently are you expressing to your partner, significant other or yourself what you really want for your relationship?
  • What about how you really feel about that person, including you, in terms of love and appreciation and gratitude for them, how deeply and frequently is that being expressed and verbalised and felt?
  • How clearly and frequently are you really expressing to your kids, friends and family what you really want for them and how you really feel about them in a proactive way?

These questions are based on my learnings in coaching and in my own journey towards unlocking more personal freedom and I'd love to know what insights they unlock for you.

Please share and practice self expression in sharing this post with others that you feel will engage with the questions in search of real answers too.

I wish you great joy, presence, connection and abundance in your day today and everyday, on purpose.

Thank you for reading.

Lee.
