Do you ever watch a television program or print advertisement and think, “I want to look like him!”? Have you attended a conference and saw a great speaker and thought, “I want to captivate like she does!”? Why do we always want to be like someone else when we are pretty spectacular people already? (Don’t agree? Ask your loved ones – they will agree with me!!)
I spoke the other day about fakers. I really detest them. Why do people want to be fake when being real is so awesome!? Your only purpose should be for you to do you – nothing more.
You might not like this exercise, but ask yourself, “Who am I?” and write down all the pros and cons of that answer. When you write that list though, refrain from using adjectives like “ugly” or “fat” because those are not defining characteristics of the person you are. They don’t speak to your integrity.
This is a really important question as you delve into and work in social media. You really want to know who you are and how you define yourself in order to amplify your value proposition. Being able to know who you are gives you courage to treat yourself better, help others and become a good steward.
When you are finished, I would love to hear what you came up with – – please feel free to message me. I’ve got a big “high-five” already here for you on knocking this out!
