Be yourself, everyone else is taken
You are the secret sauce to your own success
Being you is your superpower
While I wholeheartedly agree with these sentiments I know that there are many layers to embodying them.
On one hand it really is that simple and on the other, it’s not
If you feel some resistance when you hear these phrases that’s because it’s a dissonance from what society feeds us. From an early age we’ve had the messaging that we’re not good enough that we need more credentials, more degrees to be worthy. We need to specialize in more things. So how do you peel back the layers from what you’re told and really embrace who you are/want to be?
It can be confusing, especially when you’ve spent a big chunk of your life, living from the outside in
Seeking for external validation, for approval, instead of checking in with “Who am I? What do I like? What do I want? What feels good to me?” And then you also see people living as their authentic selves and they’re telling you “hey you too can be yourself and thrive”
Wherever you’re at, simply start. There’s no rush. You’re not behind. You’re exactly where you’re meant to be. You’re watching this video because maybe this time this is your time, or maybe you can save it for later, but in being yourself and honoring your light, your authenticity, who you are, means showing up.
Embracing your flaws and who you are in an unapologetic way. And it took me a really long time to understand that. I knew what, my goals, what my desires were, but I had so many other stories and beliefs hat were weighing me down.
It wasn’t always that comfortable to show up as myself
And some of the stories was fear of taking up space, or thinking that I’m not an expert. So if you’re on this journey of really reconnecting with yourself and understanding who you are, I see you, I hear you I know that it’s not as always as easy as it sounds.
But it can be. If you’re courageous enough to look within and to hear what comes up in the process, that’s the first step in deconditioning and coming home to yourself.
Are you ready? To show up as you?
If not, what’s holding you back?
