The One Mindset Shift that Makes Being ‘You’ Easy
The one mindset shift that makes being ‘you’ easy:
One of my clients, an aspiring celebrity, explained to me that she faces a lot of, “who are YOU, and what have YOU done?” when she’s around other accomplished role models. In these situations, she felt the need to prove herself, or shrink away for fear of being seen as ‘less.’
I looked at her and asked, “so what if you just told them your name, what you do, and that’s it?”
She looked at me like I was telling a joke.
“Seriously. What if that was enough? What if when your favourite singer gives you the eye roll at a party, you could reach your hand out to shake hers, and say, ‘hi, have we met yet? I’m ______ and I do ______’ instead of questioning all of your triumphs, hard work and worthiness?”
Make no one responsible for your worthiness but you. How treacherous, to give someone else that job! You are enough — but you’re also the one who decides you’re enough. From there, life is a playground.
