What Unleashing Your Potential Really Means: It’s simple. And complex.

I help my clients Unleash Their Potential.

People resonate with this. They feel something inside, a deep knowing. They think to themselves, I’m not fully living up to my potential. And they want to. So, they come talk to me to see how I can help.

But what does Unleashing Your Potential even mean?

In essence, Unleashing Your Potential means living from your True Self.

This is the simple part.

Unleashing Your Potential means being yourself. Fully. That’s all you need to do. You don’t need to try to be anyone else or “do” anything spectacular.

Because when you live from your True Self, your natural gifts will be activated, your flow flowing, your spirit shining, your intuition knowing,

(Yes, I made that rhyme. Helps to remember things :))

But, if it’s so simple, why aren’t we all doing it?

This is where it gets complex.

Conditioning. Ahh. Lovely, wonderful, horrible, teachable conditioning.

Many of us are taught – unconsciously – to suppress ourselves. To suppress the true nature of our being. And then, together in the collective consciousness, we reinforce this. So, it’s kinda hard to get out of.

How many times have you had a gut instinct you didn’t follow? You decided to ask someone else for their opinion, and instead of sharing from their true self, they shared from their fear. And you listened. And it didn’t work out so well.

Can you relate?

I certainly can.

The good news is that it’s possible to get out of the conditioning.

The first step in unleashing your potential is Awareness. If you are aware that you are not living from your True Self, at least you can begin to look at your patterns of how you operate in the world from a curious, discerning space. From there, you can begin to make actual choices.

Because, let’s face it, when you are operating from default conditioning, you aren’t really choosing. You are just defaulting. You *think* you are at choice. But you are running from a deeper, subconscious system.

You can change your programming.

Unleashing Your Potential is a process of unfolding. It is getting so deeply in touch with your soul and spirit, listening to yourself on a whole new level, and taking inspired action from that place. This is where the magic happens. This is where you begin to live the life you always knew you could live.

Because, deep in your soul, you know that you are meant to live from your True Self. You know that there is a life waiting for you that you are meant to have.

And all you have to do to get there is to be yourself.

Pretty cool, huh?

What within yourself will be you become aware of today?

Until next time…
