What is your ruby?

This past year I was given the opportunity to share an inspirational message to a group of 400 Life Coaches.

What is your ruby?

This past year I was given the opportunity to share an inspirational message to a group of 400 Life Coaches.

I spoke about Living with Courage.

You see, I believe that we all experience things in our lives that require us to be courageous. 

I call them rubies, because a ruby is a gemstone known for its courage and strength.

I believe that we are meant to share these rubies, so that we can inspire and encourage others.

 

Many of these rubies are life altering, scary things, like an illness, the loss of a loved one and the upheaval of our security (our job, our home or a relationship).

But I believe, with every inch in my body, that when we acknowledge these rubies and share them with others, we create a stronger bond between the people around us.

This increases our authenticity and gives others hope to face the rubies in their lives.

But often we want to understand WHY or even HOW our experience might impact others, before we share it.

But we simply need to believe that it WILL.

It is not up to us to know why, how or even when, we SIMPLY need to acknowledge there was value in experiencing it and tremendous value in sharing it.

So, as you prepare to celebrate New Year’s Eve, I encourage you to reflect on something you experienced this past year that caused you to be courageous.

What was your ruby?

And I challenge you to continue to be courageous and share your ruby with someone this next year who might need to be inspired and encouraged.

Your ruby can give someone else hope.

It can inspire and encourage them, but only if you have the courage to share it.

What was your ruby of 2019?
How will you share it today?
