007: Claim Your True Purpose By Acknowledging Who You Truly Are with Julie Cross

Embrace your true self, claim your purpose, and share your unique stories. Julie Cross discusses the importance of being authentic on the Raise 1000 Voices podcast.

Claim your true purpose

Don’t you think it is more than a little crazy that as we get a little older society expects you to act and show up in a different way? Not only is it crazy, these expectations sometimes erode your voice and diminish your purpose. In this episode of the Raise 1000 Voices podcast we get really serious about allowing our pathway and purpose to unfold by falling in love with who you truly are with Julie Cross.

Julie Cross CSP is one of Australia’s most inspiring keynote speakers. By combining compelling insights into human behaviour with practical strategies, Julie knows how to leave audiences with tools that help them to live their best lives and set a high standard in their existence – and this is exactly what she is bringing to the world of Raise 1000 Voices

It can be so easy to feel lost and confused when you listen to what others dictate as their expectations of you. But giving yourself permission to feel comfortable in being yourself allows your purpose to become more obvious. AND you realise that the personality you have was deliberately designed for what you’re meant to do.

There is nobody else like you and the world needs you to show up as you are. Your stories are meant to be shared in your own unique way. You must remember you are enough, more than capable of changing your story – and in doing so, you confidently move towards your true purpose.
