Stepping out of the shadows can be a scary thing to do,
particularly when you’ve spent a lifetime playing things safe.
Whether it’s playing small to protect ourselves, or dimming our
light to make other people feel more comfortable around us, there
are many ways in which we learn to contain what we think, what we
say and what we do.
And when the moment comes to step into our mission it can feel completely overwhelming to step out of the shadows and into the spotlight, even though we know it’s what we were born to do.
In this week’s episode we look back at my conversation with Monique DeBose, award-winning jazz singer, songwriter, playwright, diversity consultant and spiritual coach. As we listened to the many contexts in which women hold themselves back, we also witnessed what it is to experience that change in power and energy when we own who we truly are, and become unapologetic for sharing that with the world.
This Insights episode is all about the dance with resistance that we experience whenever we are ready to take the next step up in our life and leadership. Understanding our own experience of this deeply personal part of us that exists to keep us safe, so that we can work with it to help us soar.
If you’re ready to step into your own spotlight, take a listen.
