How to Be Transparent in Relationships

How many of you can honestly say that you show up in life as the full, 360-degree version of yourself? You know, the version of you with all of your STRENGTHS and all of your IMPERFECTIONS on full display?  

If you are like most people, you are probably not raising your hand right now. And trust me, you are not alone #Yana.  

It is difficult for us to share our vulnerability and be transparent because we’ve all been judgedjudged for sharing our truth or sharing our heart. And the way we’ve been treated in the past often causes us to shut down or shut ourselves off from the future. 

Our minds make assumptions to keep us safe. Our minds tell us that if someone hurt us in the past, someone in the future is going to do the SAME THING. 

Anytime we think about taking a risk or playing BIG (like pursuing our dreams or starting a business or being open to a relationship) our minds automatically go back and look in the mental file cabinet to bring up a memory of something similar that might not have worked. 

Our minds are designed to collect evidence and mitigate risks. 

In this week’s episode of The Lisa Nichols Show, I explain how the mind can only go backwards and pull from files that were already lived. And why it’s SO IMPORTANT to blend your thoughts with your passion, your intuition, your beliefs and your resiliency. 

I share how I started to embrace my imperfections because perfection is just an ILLUSION. I know I’m growing and striving every day to be a better version of me, and that gives me more peace of mind. I’m more AUTHENTIC and more COMFORTABLE with myself, and YOU can be too.

I know I am stubborn, and a control freak, and a bunch of other things. But I show up now as the 360-DEGREE version of me. And, I challenge you to practice doing the same.  Because people can either LOVE you, LIKE you, or they can just LEAVE you alone!

I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE reading your comments. So please share below what your biggest takeaway was or your #BOL (Breakthrough out loud). This is THE place for courageous conversations and delicious dialogue in a safe, supportive space. This is your COMMUNITY, your TRIBE, and your HOME.

Remember, I love and believe in you—the whole 360-degree version! 

Your sister in prosperity and possibility,
