Victoria Labalme – Risking Forward: Embracing uncertainty and unlocking your hidden genius 

How much do you trust your inner current? That inner nudge that comes from the ideas, people and directions that ignite you. The voice that says this needs to be explored.

Next question – what about your ideas? How much do you trust your ideas? I’m not talking about the great earth shatteringly brilliant ideas, the ones that arrive like an avalanche and everyone applauds. 

I’m talking about the quiet one, the one that isn’t quite right yet. The one that feels like a collapsed cobweb when you try to pull it out of your brain to explain it to someone else. In the words of my guest today – ‘the idea that leads to the idea’.

If you answer yes to both those questions, you live a life of risking forward.

You’ll Learn

  • Why the most influential moments of our lives rarely come with a fanfare
  • Why shifting your focus from ‘recognition’ to ‘contribution’ is one of the most powerful decisions you can make when it comes to momentum.
  • The concept of the ‘through line’ 
  • Why hyperactivity is a form of self-hypnosis 
  • How to start trusting your ideas 

What I love about Victoria, and the idea of risking forward, is that it’s not about taking massive action. In fact, it often begins as the opposite. Putting down the pen long enough to sink into moments of not knowing. To let the last chapter fade, so you have the chance of writing something new. Trusting your inner current, even when you have no idea where it’s taking you.
