So, I decided to allow my hair to do what it wants to do. My hair loves to curl, my tresses love water, and I’m o.k. with that.
No more weaves, no more trying to get it to do what it naturally does NOT want to do, I am me, fulfilled and free.
Since deciding to embrace my natural curls I can truly say that a new door of freedom has opened up for me, not just personally but professionally also.
I recently booked an opportunity to do recurring group coaching sessions with upper level managers on a quarterly basis, adding to the growing list of clients that I serve. Talent opened the door, confidence sealed the deal.
A new found confidence comes when you are your authentic self, and confidence is attractive. You know it’s funny, I get more compliments now that I am rocking my natural hair, than I ever did when I wore extensions.
Now don’t get me wrong, I am not anti-weave. My decision to embrace my natural tresses was also a necessity. All of that hair on my head was starting to feel like a wool hat in the summer time. So for me, it just made sense to ditch the extra bundles and allow my own hair to breathe. Who knows, when the weather turns cold, I may reach for one of those woolly weaves, but for now, I am happy, comfortable and FREE.
With personal growth comes change. Certain things and behaviors fall away in order to make room for new and more productive ones. Embrace your evolution.
Now before you assume that this post is all about hair, let me assure you that it is not. I used that analogy because I think it’s a great example of how free we become when we are authentic and real.
I am a firm believer that there is no greater path towards ultimate freedom and prosperity than the path we were created to follow, our own unique purpose.
Sure you can work hard, doing something totally unrelated to your purpose, and you may even reap some benefit from it. However when you are fully in your purpose, you don’t have to worry about working hard, because you are flowing in what comes naturally to you.
And that is the only way to experience ultimate freedom and fulfillment.
It is only when you connect to purpose, that you will begin to reap the rewards of your labor, in ways that will satisfy your every need.
How do you connect with your purpose? Ask yourself:
- Who benefits the most from what I have to offer? Who am I called to serve?
- What talent or ability do I possess, that when I operate in it, I am 100% fulfilled?
- Where do I feel most comfortable and the least stressed?
- Why is it what’s important to me, important?
- When do I feel the most empowered?
Your purpose is your life’s mission. You have everything you need in order to fulfill it. Certain gifts may be lying dormant within you, but that doesn’t mean that they are not there. You must be willing to allow your true self to be seen, be generous with your light. Trust me, there is an audience waiting to benefit from what have to offer, and your truest riches and prosperity will only come when you say yes to YOU.
