Who Do You Think You Are?

I recently resigned from my job to focus on my business full-time after being in Corporate America for about 20 years!!! {insert Beyonce dancing gif here}

I will share the whole story with you one day soon. But just know that I learned so much about myself on this journey.

The biggest realization was how much I cared about what other people thought of me. I never realized I cared so much about that! So much that it was dictating what I would and wouldn’t do, even when something felt true to me.

And not just stuff like posting pictures and videos of myself on social media (although that was part of it too), but also big stuff like not telling people what I was doing just in case I failed.

A friend posted something recently that said, “We focus on trying NOT to fail instead of trying to succeed.”

That was me (and sometimes still is). I focused so hard on not failing because I worried about what others would think if I did.

Digging into it more, I didn’t want people to say “Of course she failed. Who does she think she is? Who is she to be coaching somebody on their life?” Because the truth is that I didn’t know who I was. I didn’t know who I was to be coaching somebody on their life.

I had spent my life being who I thought I was supposed to be that I didn’t know who I really was outside of that. I had to lean on God to show me who I was and to know that I’m who He says I am. Through my faith, I learned to be true to myself about who I was and who I wanted to be.

So now I get to focus on succeeding instead of not failing because first of all, I WILL fail. That’s part of the game. The more I fail, the closer I get to success. Second of all, I know who I am and just because I fail doesn’t mean I’m a failure. A failure is someone who quits. I’ll never be that.

Are you worried about what people will think of you? Is that holding you back from being who you want to be? I get it. Let’s talk. Click HERE to schedule a time that’s convenient for you.
