One of the reasons it’s important to speak and share your own truth is that it allows you to really hear and feel it in your bones.
By “your truth,” I just mean what is, for you, right now. You’ll see.
The counterintuitive truth of speaking your truth is that it’s usually not the first thing that comes to the top of your mind. It can take a little digging.
This audio piece helps you calm down and work through the process of finding, acknowledging, expressing, and sharing your truth.
While, on the face of it, this piece and topic may seem random, it has a lot to do with being productive and flourishing. The more you’re aware of yourself and where you are, the better you’re able to create better experiences and outcomes.
Or maybe just settle down and breathe. 🙂
You might find the backstory interesting on this one. It came from a Twitter conversation with Sinclair and I had been reflecting on the topic for a bit. I was inspired to record it and didn’t want to mess with a bunch of audio equipment, so I put my headphones on and recorded it in one take. Had I messed with the equipment, I would have lost it.
Hence the beautiful imperfections of the piece.
I kicked the audio to the team, since all I’d hear were the imperfections. If you like it, know that Megan and Marissa saved it from the scrap heap.

There is nothing like the journey of self-discovery: know who you are.
If you don’t know who you are, how are you going to help others? Know your strengths and weaknesses; know about your limitations; know what motivates you; and so on.
One of the ways to find out about yourself is by experimenting with different ideas. Take actions based on those ideas, and you will find what works for you and what does not work for you.
The great philosophers of the world have always put a high premium on cultivating awareness about yourself. Cheers.
Have you ever read The 4 Agreements? It definitely compliments everything you’ve written here. One of the hardest things that I’m still learning is how differently everyone else can see the same situation completely different than I see it. I’m now more aware of it, but it’s still surprising!
Hey Charlie, I really like this audio clip. “When we are in the present moment, we can better channel our resources most effectively.” Spot on! The present moment is really the only time that we can decide, act, and make a conscious difference. The past is nothing more than a bunch of “present moments” built up on top of one another. And the future is the potential “present moments” we will experience later on. But the actual moment we are experiencing right now is our only opportunity to act and create.

Great audio track Charlie. Very calming. This has everything to do with productivity. Getting in the right mindset, getting present, and freeing yourself from the resistance is the key to getting things done…getting great things done.
