Speaking Your Soul Story
Part of living the truth of who you are is speaking the truth of who you are.
Speaking your truth isn’t just about public speaking. It’s about sharing your soul story, from whatever “stage” life presents you. Whether you’re giving a TED Talk or hosting a book club, whether you’re a team lead on a corporate project or an entrepreneur seeking funding, you have an opportunity to speak from the truth of who you are to effect positive change.
In this Circle Up, you will identify your “stages,” as well as your soul story – the certain angle that you see in almost any given situation, creating the lens that is your unique perspective. My soul story is that everybody is a light, everybody has a shining spirit, and everybody is connected to the divine. That souls story tints my lens, and subconsciously almost every interaction I have becomes opportunity to create a space – whether it’s brunch with friends, a Power Circle, or the EWLive stage – where that light can shine through.
It’s easy sometimes to try to adopt someone else’s lens – especially if we see that person having success. But another’s lens will always be a little foggy. By developing the power and practice to come from your own truth, your Home Zone as Gail Larsen calls it, you maximize the opportunities to connect, influence, and have meaningful impact.
Let’s explore how to own that soul story, how it has been shaped by our life experiences, and how to use it to help us do the work we are meant to do in this world.
