6/1/2016: Trust

A reminder to listen to your inner voice and trust your talents! $25 giclee print available at the Made Vibrant Art Shop.

I believe so much of what we do with our lives first begins with how strong our conviction is that we are meant for great things.

It’s not always easy, of course, carrying this conviction. There are DAILY moments when doubts and fears creep in. When years of self-talk habits convince us we’re ordinary.

But those are the times I do whatever I can to bring my awareness back to what makes me unique, what my superpowers are, and to TRUST the talent that I have. And I don’t just mean talent like skills or a specific aptitude. That’s what we tell ourselves sometimes because it feels safer to believe we don’t have talents to cultivate.

Here’s what I believe in my bones: EVERYONE has a talent. Whether it’s being a good listener or connecting people with each other or organizing things or taking care of kids… we all excel in SOMETHING.

The trick is that we have to listen closely to our inner voice and TRUST those talents. We have to take action to harness them to get us closer to our dreams.

You know what definitely DOESN’T get you closer to your dreams? Standing still. Doubting yourself. Criticizing yourself or convincing yourself you’re not special.

You ARE special because, ironically enough, we’re all special in one way or another. Figure our what your talent is and then TRUST that if you let it, it will lead you where you want to go.
