I can't believe how quickly we are already through the first month of the year.
I have been a busy bee and keeping my focus on doing the important things that will continue moving me forward.
I am happy to say that I am staying on top of my planner,(I am so wanting to dominate this organization thing!) and it has been really helpful.
I also decided to go back into a book- EAT THAT FROG from Brian Tracy. It seriously helps you prioritize what is important and do the things you need to do FIRST that will continue you toward progressing to your goals, and stop procrastinating. So if you struggle, I definitely recommend taking a look at it!
Now onto the POWER OF BEING YOU! For the longest time, I had struggled with knowing who I am, or just being comfortable enough in public to be who I am & not trying to be what I thought others wanted me to be. So, of course, I became confused, even more uncomfortable and never enjoyed being out.
This even was showing up in my work in class at AMAW. I wanted to "work", I wanted to "impress" and throw away the uniqueness that is me. For we are our biggest critics, sure, but we are also so special and unique. No one can be you but you.... and we need to learn to embrace that. That is where our power and strength lies, and ultimately, being you is going to help open up many doors vs being someone you are not.
I am now discovering that I have to embrace that I am a little ball of energy, I can speak a mile a minute and that I am that cutesy girl next door with a comedic edge. I have been fighting against this for so long, and avoiding doing anything that resembled it for I found it a weakness.
But, thankfully so much to my teacher, Nina Paul Rausch, she just opened up and broke down so many walls within these last few weeks and the light bulb went off.
I leaned in towards that fear of I speak too fast when I get excited or passionate, I do have so much energy and afraid to let it fire and move around and just embraced it.....and happy to say that I went to a workshop recently and sat down with an agent....
I let ME be completely in the room- I was ME in the character, I wasn't pretending to be a character, but BEING ME and being that role to life from MY perspective and I enjoyed every second of it. I didn't feel in the "hot seat" so to speak... I let my instincts fire, let my ball of energy do what it needed and if I got passionate about something, I didn't limit how fast I spoke.
And guess what? For the first time, I got an AMAZING compliment from this agent from doing just that. I wont' go into too many details but seriously was amazing...for I stopped holding back WHO I AM, Let my inner self shine and he got it. He got to see who I am, what I can offer and I had amazing feedback.
So, don't filter yourself, don't hold back. Do not give in to the fear of being YOU. You are so unique, so powerful and once you surrender into that--again, so many doors will open and you will be around the people that you are meant to be with!!
NEVER FORGET THAT!
