Have you ever noticed how young children say what they think?
They tend to speak up and show us their real selves. They haven’t been conditioned otherwise – at least not at that point.
But, ultimately, what have we learned as we’re growing up?
To hide away our real selves in order to be liked by as many people as possible. To hide away our feelings and opinions and passions for fear that someone else will disapprove.
Yes, it’s important to fit into society and learn social graces. I’m not knocking it. But for many it goes hand in hand with stifling our authentic selves.
We no longer know how to go about expressing our truest selves because we fear that we’ll be taking too big of a risk.
I say, “Enough!”
It is time to rediscover your authentic self.
It’s time to nurture that inner knowing at your core and begin focusing on what you want for yourself in your business and in your personal life.
If you aren’t sure who your authentic self is, then I invite you to begin asking yourself what your values are, what makes you happy, and what your strengths are.
Start inviting your truest self to shine and it will.
Be open and curious to learn about yourself.
Think back to when you were younger and felt free to express yourself and try new things. What made you happy? What interests did you have? What were you curious about? What made you giggle? What made your heart sing?
What makes you happiest about being an entrepreneur? Can you create a list of all the things about self-employment that delight and inspire you?
Find out who you are and choose to embrace your authenticity. When you do that, your business will soar.
Embrace and express your passions, opinions, dreams, and desires.
We want to get to know you – the real you! We want to do business with the real you – the one who is passionate and excited and genuinely interested in everything they do and everyone they do business with.
This, I believe, is the secret to a successful business and a fulfilled life.
I invite you to take the first step today.
Tap into your authentic self and let yourself shine even brighter than you already do.
