After reading this title, with one eyebrow raised, you might be asking, “What does truth have to do with business?” I totally get it. There might have been a time when I even asked myself that question. However, with wisdom under my belt, I have come to appreciate that if you don’t know what you’re passionate about, or what really drives you — from a truthful place — then how are you supposed to build a successful business that will bring you joy?
Being truthful can be very painful for many because, as they say, the truth can sometimes hurt. It requires you to analyze not only what you like about your life, but also what you don’t like about your life. When identifying what you don’t like, you also have to take responsibility for the fact that it’s up to you to change what you don’t like.
But don’t let the pain and fear get the best of you. What’s on the other side of truth is a beautiful thing — clarity and awareness! Clarity and awareness bring power (and a natural shift in mindset). It also allows you to celebrate who you truly are. Once you get clear and aware of what you don’t like about your life and business (more on awareness in our next issue!), you’ll be clear on what needs to change, and from there, you can create a plan to make those changes.
