Luvvie Ajayi Jones on Finding the Courage to Speak Your Truth & Be A Professional Troublemaker￼
How can you be unapologetically, authentically you? Luvvie Ajayi Jones, 3x NYT bestselling author, sought-after speaker, podcast host, and self proclaimed professional troublemaker saw her blog take off when she simply began to show up as her full self. She shares how to find belonging by speaking your truth, why we should welcome conflict, why you should tell your story, how to make your dreams a reality without a 5 or 10 year plan, and how we can all practice acts of generosity and love.
Keep listening to what feels good and the universe will get you into the right places. You don’t need a grand plan. Just do what feels compelling for you, what feels true, what feels right to you today.
Being a professional troublemaker means speaking the truth, knowing it’s difficult but doing the hard things anyway.
When we choose authenticity is when we belong. Because the people who are your people will see you. When you’re in the room where you are truly yourself and you belong – that is harmony.
Conflict is a growth opportunity. Welcome conflict in, because on the other side of it you have an understanding of who this person is even more.
We were not born to people please. We were born to pursue purpose.
None of us are supposed to be perfect. Giving yourself grace is probably the best gift that you give to yourself. You can always do better tomorrow.
Life is not just about you. It’s about how you can use your power for the greater good.
You don’t always have to get it right. But you’re always worthy of love and grace.
