Show Notes

"Spending time alone helps us silence those external influences and get better at distinguishing between all the outside noise and our inner voice. In turn, you can get clearer and clearer on knowing what you really want." 

What is it like to walk the path of curiously discovering who we are? This episode is inspired by this cool quote from the leadership coach and bestselling author, Robin Sharma.

"The starting point of discovering who you are, your gifts, talents, your dreams is being comfortable with yourself. Spend time alone. Write in a journal."

 Tune in now to discover how you can know yourself through Sharma's three suggested steps: 

  1. Be comfortable with yourself. 
  2. Spend time alone. 
  3. Write in a journal. 

In this week's episode, we explore: 

  • Why feeling comfortable with yourself expands your capacity to hold and accept more of who you are. 
  • Dialling down the all-consuming external noise to reclaim space in our heads.
  • Building awareness of the factors that shape our decision-making. 
  • The bubbling up that happens when we sit in silence.
  • Why this distractible age keeps us stuck in surface-level thinking..    

"The more we can hear our true self, the more we can make decisions that are aligned with what's going to make us happy." 

  • The link between silence and surfacing our individual wisdom. 
  • Journaling as a side-kick for maximising alone time. 
  • When you make your thoughts tangible, you reflect YOU back at you. 
  • How loving scrutiny is a gateway to deeper insight. 
  • Managing our expectations around journaling. 
  • And more... 

Journaling is a powerful tool for knowing who we are. It's an important journey. The more we know who we are, the more we can shape and shift our lives into the direction that can bring us the most joy, fulfillment, and connection with our best selves.

"Depth is a differentiator.  Depth is where the clarity comes from. The more complex thoughts we can juggle and move through, the more we can surface insight and wisdom.  We want to get beyond the surface and superficial chatter."
