Living Your Truth (Summary Notes)
Just you alone with your thoughts in silence. What’s been on your mind lately? And what is that internal voice nudging you to do or to explore or to say? Spend a moment with that concept. Explore where living your truth begins.
Living your truth requires listening to the silence. For in the silence, you find out who you really are. The truth that is you, cannot be found in the chaos. Clarity cannot be found in chaos.
There’s something deep within, something ancient, something true and real. Living your truth requires listening to the primal voice deep within. Such is the path to finding your independent voice in this world.
“Seek not greatness, but seek truth and you will find both” – Horace Mann.
What Does Living Your Truth Require?
When I coach someone that’s unhappy, truly miserable, I usually find they have lost their truth. Living your truth cannot be optional. Living your truth has requirements:
- Living your truth requires understanding your story.
- Living your truth requires a sense of purpose.
- Living your truth requires honoring your path.
But how to meet those requirements?
What has life been about for you? What is it about right now at this moment? What are the top priorities in your life? And here’s the big question: Are those priorities serving you? Are you making choices that support the life you seek?
Living your truth requires clarity. Living your truth requires purpose. Living your truth requires discipline.
If you were to walk past a zen master, would he judge you to be in alignment? Meaning, would he say, yes, how you are and how you live are in sync?
As you write words with the time that you have been given, what story are you trying to tell? And most importantly, are you the writer? Are you the writer of your own story? Or are you living out of obligation?
Living your truth requires firmly walking your own path on your own terms. You have to slow down and really pay attention to listen to the voice within and what is it telling you.
Five Indicators That You Are Living Your Truth
- You feel secure in your decisions, you feel secure in your decisions.
- You go to the beat of your own drum.
- You trust your path.
- You don’t settle in the areas that matter most.
- You don’t need to avoid the silence, you’re okay with the silence.
Living Your Truth Is Living What Is Real For You
What’s born from you living your truth? To live your truth is to honor what is real for you without apology. It’s fully choosing to be you. Living your truth is being yourself, the good, the not so good, without apology.
Nobody gets to decide who you are, that’s not up for negotiation.
In other words, your life, your story, your message to the world folks, they all matter, they all matter. Life is so very short and so very precious, don’t waste it by living out someone else’s hallucination of who and what you should be. Living your truth requires claiming your voice. Fully. Passionately.
What truths define who you are and how you live? What truths define who you are and how you live? And is there anything you want to change? If yes, what would that be? Is there anything you wanna change? If yes, what might that be? Be honest, keep it simple, don’t overthink your answers.
