I have been invited to a couple of events where I'll have to introduce myself.
Ooohh I'm suddenly feeling kind of vulnerable.
After having an enforced year out of working there's no protective mantle to hide behind. Well ... that's not absolutely true, but a great deal has changed in my perception of personal and professional life. I can no longer turn to the tried and tested 'elevator pitch' it somehow doesn't fit like it used to. I always believed myself to be authentic and transparent and often struggled to wear the cookie cutter designs I'd learned throughout my own business mentoring.
If nothing else this past 12 months has taught me to embrace my true self, to take risks, trust my heart no matter what, and never again squeeze into someone else's idea, even if it is a proven formula, of what suits me best.
It's time to get really real for my own sake and yours too
We both deserve it.
There's no point in me or you trying to morph and shape shift - if we're not a perfect fit for one another, if what I say doesn't interest or inspire you, that's okay - we are both allowed to discard what we don't want, leave it in a pile on the floor if necessary and move on. Wow, how freeing is that?!
So, I'm off to consider a little of what I'd like to share with you about me because we all know how much first impressions count
How about you?
Are you still masquerading under a guise you've outgrown? Would you like to reconsider and maybe try something else for size?
Would love to hear your thoughts.
There's a space below. I promise to come back to you if you do us the privilege of sharing. You never know who else you'll inspire x
