The Velvet Hammer

What most often stops women from making a big shift in their life is the fear of hurting someone’s feelings. In my business, I’m affectionately known as the “Velvet Hammer” because of my soft-but-tough stand with my clients. But personally, I worry as much as any gal about hurting someone’s feelings.

What I’ve learned is to NOT let that stop me from making a decision that is right for me. Here’s what I do: When I feel myself contracting, not wanting to upset someone, I always ask a powerful question my mom, Kailash (an awesome coach on these kinds of sticky situations!) taught me. The question is:

“What is it YOU really want?”

I then answer the question, without fear of upsetting anyone. In that moment, I have found my truth and from there, can respectfully and compassionately have a conversation or take action from a place of authenticity and power, rather than from guilt or worry.

Relationships are tough but they get surprisingly easy when we come from our place of truth, no matter what.
