Dr. Brooke Stuart, the founder and active president of Let Go & Grow® International, speaks about listening to her heart and recognizing that she could make her own choices in life. What did she truly want to do?
Dr. Brooke came in last place in a golf tournament as a student athlete, and needed to decide the next best step to take. It was devastating at that point in time, seeing herself as a failure, her confidence levels were broken, and she was afraid to lose her relationship with her dad.
It took courage to listen to the voice in her head, which was clear as day, telling her that she knew in her heart that what she was doing was not for her. She had neglected herself and the signs for a while, but this was the exact wake up call that she needed.
At that point in time, Dr. Brooke had invested so much time, energy, effort, and resources into the game- so her typical response would have been to try harder. But for the first time in her life, she recognized that she had a choice- that she could say no, and live life on her own terms. She made the decision to listen to her inner voice and acted on it.
When you follow your intuition, you will never be misled because your inner compass will always be inside, ready to guide you. If you listen to anyone who has ever accomplished anything, they talk about their intuition, yet somehow we learn to forgo our inner voice for the ways of the world. Somehow, we learn not to trust it until we come home to realize that we never really left- we just couldn’t see clearly. Once you awaken to yourself and choose growth, it is impossible to go back to where you came from. If you mean it, you will progress and move forward with each breath and each step!
