It’s time for your fifth clue.
🧩 Clue #5
TOGGLING instead of LOOPING
If you are not experiencing communication ease, perhaps you are LOOPING, going round and round on the carousel of past experiences. And assuming you’re doomed to repeat the past.
This is what looping looks, feels, and sounds like.
👀 It looks like obsessing over small details.
☹️ It feels like being trapped inside your head.
👂 It sounds like repeating what you usually say or write.
The trick is to start TOGGLING.
This is what toggling looks, feels, and sounds like.
👀 It looks like being nimble on your feet.
😃 It feels like shifting beat-by-beat.
👂 It sounds like saying or writing whatever is called for.
So, how do you stop looping and start toggling?
It begins with a SHIFT IN AWARENESS.
As with the previous shifts in awareness, it’s important to unearth the myths that may be standing in the way.
🐲 Communication Myth #5
“I’m a product of my communication history."
This myth is rooted in the VICTIM mentality. It snags your communication ease with hooks like “I’m beyond hope and help.” Or “I feel like a failure even before I start.” Even “Someone or something else is to blame.”
👉🏼 Have you noticed that making it about “your history” doesn’t always help?
That’s because it prevents you from stretching your communication awareness beyond your old story. It stops you from exploring a new version of yourself. And it blocks you from becoming aware of all the ways you are free to respond right now.
The radical truth is…
💡 Communication Ease comes with being FREE
Communication ease is multifaceted. It arises from being aware of it all, and being nimble.
