In my previous post I laid out the three key components to flying your freak flag so you can AMP UP your shine factor and make more money.
In this post I’m going to talk about key #1: Owning who you are and what differentiates you from all the rest.
If you want to own who you are: you got to know who you are!
You need to know what drives you, what is special about you, and give yourself permission to be 100% you in your full freaky glory.
Start off by answering these questions:
Why would someone want to hire you instead of someone else?
What is your unique perspective about the world and how it works?
What are your super powers?
If you can answer these questions – Yay!! You’re on your way to flying your freak flag high and proud.
If you can’t – you are not alone!!
I see a lot of people getting stuck and having a hard time answering these kinds of questions.
Are you taking these things for granted or having a hard time seeing them to begin with?
Have you taken the time to really get to know yourselves intimately, learn what works, or what your preferences are?
Are you too caught up in the bus-y-ness of life and trying to do everything the right way – that you’ve lost touch with your own way of doing things?
I suspect that you spend way more time thinking about how you can “fix” yourself and improve your perceived flaws. I’m going to tell you right now you wasting your time doing that. You’re way better off spending your time thinking about all your talents, preferences and what makes you rock!
Give yourself permission to be 100% you! Flaws, quirks, strengths, freaky bits, and everything in between!
LOVE. IT. ALL
I can’t express how important this piece of the process is!
I suggest spending some time reconnecting with YOU and what makes you tick. Set aside some quiet space in your day to journal, mediate, or just hang out with YOU. Notice how you feel and what your inner-guidance is telling you. Write it down. Notice with out judgement. It’s all good!
In most cases, the things that are freaky and weird about you are going to be your strongest selling points. All you need to do is embrace them and bring them forward ( I know, easier said than done! This is something that I can help you with. *wink*.)
From an energetic perspective…
Coming to place of love and acceptance within yourself, and knowing what your super powers are is vital if you want to become super shiny to the people who are going to buy from you.
How you feel about yourself and the work you do is reflected in your energy and people unconsciously respond to it.
If you own your amazing ability to express emotion through your voice or cut through the bullshit to see where someone is blocked, then you will be sending a strong clear signal out saying, “I am great at this!” You will attract opportunities to do those things. When you doubt yourself and aren’t clear on what you’re good at; you send out doubtful energy that attracts more of the same.
Here are some action steps to help you OWN your Bad-Ass Self!
Make a commitment to get to know YOU better.
Consider these things:
- Pay attention to what you do naturally and what interests you (this is where your super powers can be found).
- Acknowledge your strengths and your weaknesses and find a way to embrace both.
- Notice your natural rhythm and the way you like to work with people.
- Pay attention to what your point of view and unique perspective are.
- Identify what you stand for in your life and your business. What kind of revolution would you like to lead? (This is really important, and I’ll talk more about it in the next blog post.)
