The Art of the Deep Yes

988669_10152882434160652_1893030052_nWelcome to another Tuesday with TED. Today we have one of my all-time favorite bloggers, the self-proclaimed badass writer, Justine Musk. Actually, I don’t think she needs to tell anyone she’s a badass. We can read (or watch) her work and KNOW.

Justine recently spoke at the TEDxOlympicBlvdWomen Conference and gave this brilliant and moving talk about saying no in order to make room for one’s Deep Yes. It’s about other things too, but mostly it’s about identifying your authentic purpose and then finding the strength to claim it.

Watch and explore the “deep yes” of self worth: what it is, why we lose it, and how we can get it back. I think every woman needs to watch this talk. Prepare to be inspired. I mean, really, really inspired. Enjoy!

What is the heroic story that YOU long to live? What is your Deep Yes, and what do you need to say no to in order to make room for your dreams? Share your answer in the comments.

Until next time,
Cynthia Patton
