Greatness exists within you, it is there and I can see it. If we spend some time together, if we speak by email, I see it in the words you use I hear it in your tone of voice, I notice it in your actions.

Even if you have no idea of your true capabilities or you have been at the elite of your profession for years, I see the deep well of untapped potential inside of you.

As a coach, it is my job to show it to you and guide you to unleash it into the world. It can take many forms, but it is there and to me, it is blindingly obvious.

If you want to bring out your own greatness there are many ways to do it and a belief that you can is not required for it to happen.

This is the first in a series of posts where I share practical things that you can start doing today:

Number 1 is: Filtering your opinions.

How often do you consider what others might think of you? When do you hold back for fear of sounding silly or getting it wrong? What about the times that you try to impress someone? (a boss, a colleague, someone you are attracted to)

Any time you stop yourself because of that fear, you are holding yourself back and crushing your true self. You are suffocating your spirit.

To unleash greatness it requires that you do things that feel uncomfortable, that you connect to your own inner wisdom. The most basic way is to say what you think; to consider what really matters to you and to stand by that.

If you want to unleash the greatness that exists within you, start by deliberately saying what you really think. Throw away the filter and risk saying the wrong thing, risk being made fun of, dare to be you and to be fallible.

You can start as small or as big as you want; as long as you start to make this a new way of being, you will connect to the amazing person you really are; with your own valuable opinions and your own values that are clear to see.

Caring too much what people think is one of the biggest regrets that people report when they are dying. Don’t wait until it is too late to do anything about it, start today!

What is one opinion/idea you have that you never share with anyone because of fear?

I invite you to share it here in the comments. Make THIS the place that you make a stand!
