Charting a Fearless Path: Discovering Your Inner Growth Compass
"You have within you right now everything you need to deal with whatever the world can throw at you." – Brian Tracy
Do you know how to access your own inner growth compass? Navigating the complexities of business, life, and relationships can be daunting, and it is not always clear which direction to take. In the midst of uncertainty, how can you be sure you are on the right path? It is essential to learn how to access your inner growth compass and trust its guidance.
Many people believe that if something feels scary, confusing, or uncomfortable, we should avoid it. While this is sound advice when it comes to physical danger, it's a different story when it pertains to personal growth.
Throughout my life, I have been terrified of public speaking. However, I discovered that this fear and uncertainty were actually signals from my inner growth compass, guiding me toward the areas I needed to develop. Joseph Campbell's famous quote, "The cave you fear to enter holds the treasure you seek," perfectly captures this idea.
Embracing my fear, I joined a public speaking program, secured keynote speeches, and prepared for my first TEDx talk. As I faced these challenges head-on, I experienced profound fulfillment and aliveness. My fears served as a guiding light, directing me toward personal growth and achievement.
As a coach to high-performers, I recognize that I can only take my clients as deep as I am willing to go myself. That is why learning to trust my own inner guidance system is so important because it allows me to teach my clients to do it for themselves. If you aim to make a difference, create abundance, and play a big game in life, learning to trust your inner compass is one of the most powerful tools at your disposal.
