5 Clues For Communication Ease - #1Nov 08, 2022
Welcome to Week 1 of the Communication Quest! 🏔✏️💬
It’s time for your first clue to communication ease.
🧩 Clue #1
INSOURCING instead of OUTSOURCING
If you are not experiencing communication ease, perhaps you are OUTSOURCING your communication to other people. And giving them power over what you say and write.
This is what outsourcing looks, feels, and sounds like.
👀 Looks like a carbon copy of someone else.
🥴 Feels like faking it with the hope of someday making it.
👂 Sounds conventional, similar to what others are saying.
The secret is to start INSOURCING.
This is what insourcing looks, feels, and sounds like.
👀 Looks unique.
😃 Feels like being real and true to yourself.
👂 Sounds fresh and interesting.
So, how do you stop outsourcing and start insourcing?
It begins with a SHIFT IN AWARENESS.
And that means first uncovering myths that may be standing in the way.
🐲 Communication Myth #1
“I should copy others in order to fit in.”
This myth is rooted in the infamous SHOULD approach. It snags your communication ease on hooks like “I should belong here.” Or “I should fake confidence on the outside until I feel it on the inside.” Even “I should parrot the way others speak or write.”
👉🏼 Have you noticed that communicating “in order to fit in” doesn’t always work?
That’s because you’re not being true to yourself. Instead, you’re reaching for an outside fix to ease your insecurities and discomfort. We all do it.
The radical truth is…
💡 Communication Ease is an INSIDE JOB.
Communication ease is rooted in who you already are (or maybe forgot who you are). You access it by following your inner promptings.
