In January, I went through the Emerge Retreat with Sabine Messner of Soulpurpose Branding (want to know more, you can check her out on our podcast next Friday).
And one of the amazing revelations that came from that process was Your Biz Rules! And some of the things that came out of it were hard to hear. One of the personal revelations that was brought up was the walls I put up to ‘protect’ myself. Why? Well, I have some innate skills, that are powerful, and attract people to me. Sounds good huh? Well if I’m honest – it can be overwhelming and darn right scary. Hence the walls, the tower of protection.
Having it pointed out by my dear friend, Dr. Paul Newton that even where I have set up my office in my home was this little fortress of solitude, was set up to defend and protect. Want something to stop you in the tracks – that was it. And suddenly, it was clear.
And since January, I have set out with an intent to tear down the walls. In fact, since it was pointed out to me that I had made this fortress, I haven’t sat at my desk once. Truly. Not once.
So tonight, Friday – we have completely dismantled this little fortress of solitude I had built to protect myself. I’m not into hiding. I have a purpose to serve and I’m on a mission to make it so.
What walls are you hiding behind?
