Are you showing up fully? Or are you wasting energy hiding parts of you?
In my conversations with people, I am always surprised how much this happens to all of us. We are truly our worst enemy when it comes to judging ourselves.
Talking with a client last week, I was sharing with him how my 'big issue' has always been not feeling good enough. He was surprised as he had not seen any indication of me feeling that way. And I get that a lot. People see me and think I have it all going on and that my life is all rainbows and confidence...
If you have read my stuff for a while you know that is NOT the case. I don't hide that part either BUT I did for a long time. I truly and really disliked that part of me. The insecure, scared, small me.
Until, one day, after a LOT of work, I decided to start to appreciate me, the full expression of what makes me, ME. And it has been an amazing journey!
Accepting ourselves is the first step to a more fulfilled life. It is also the beginning of developing your personal brand. Nothing is more unique than you and your story. We are all perfectly imperfect.
It's taken me a while, but I am closer and closer. I am learning and accepting who I am fully. And at every step, I can see how everything around me gets transformed in an amazing way.
To think of all those years disliking, disowning and hiding who I was... What a waste of energy!!!
I want you to think today: What parts of you are you hiding or rejecting? We ALL have parts like that. So please be honest with yourself.
Allow yourself to look at those parts of you, see them, let them be.
There is nothing better than a person being proud to bring who they are fully, wherever they go. Believe me, your life just gets better and better as you go through this process. And that is why I love the work I do so much.
Having the opportunity to see people stepping up and shining brightly as they own who they are and their uniqueness is so powerful!
Are you ready to become your most authentic, confident and charismatic self? If you are in Perth, I would love you to join me for my next Presence Formula workshop, where I will be taking you on this journey in person.
In this full-day training, we will hone in on who you are, your point of difference, your personal brand, and your communication style. And how to use all these new awarenesses and knowledge to take your career or business to the next level!
The next Presence Formula Workshop is on July 23rd. You can read more here.
The path to increasing your level of leadership and influence begins with self-mastery. This concept is probably the most important foundation to achieve the success you desire.
