– Just be yourself!
Who hasn’t heard this statement before?
I think we all have!
And although it sounds like an amazing thing to do…
– Many wonder what in the world does that mean?!
– Others wonder why it is so important…
– And some have no idea how to make it happen!
If you feel this way too, I get it… I walked the walk.
Having found the answers, I can assure you that in order to be yourself, you need to know yourself first!
And although it may sound cliche, it is challenging at times.
Before I moved to London I considered myself a self-aware person, but once the plane touched down in the country that was to be my new home…
The whole new journey of self-discovery began!
Because moving abroad may make you feel slightly confused about yourself.
– Not being sure where you belong…
– Finding yourself lost in cultural differences
– Doubting your past views and opinions
– Not being sure anymore what your values are
And that’s okay! It’s the stage of the process.
The process of getting to know yourself! Again!
An amazing opportunity to improve your self-awareness, challenge and LET GO all that has been conditioned in you by your environment, culture and your experiences – all that isn’t and never was yours!
An amazing opportunity to REINVENT yourself.
To decide on who you really are.
Because our true self is who we really are when we let go all of the limited stories and labels that we have placed upon ourselves.
Knowing yourself is the foundation of ANY authentic success in life.
So, if you want to follow your goals and feel truly fulfilled…
If you want to live ON YOUR OWN TERMS…
There is no way around it but to start with developing your self-knowledge.
• understanding your drivers
• being aware of your strengths (and weak points too!)
• and identifying your values – so as you can start living according to them
Honestly, as a coach, I never stop being impressed by the ability of people to improve and progress once they get clarity about themselves.
A complete game changer!
So, I want to encourage you to get to know yourself.
Explore, challenge, be curious…
Observe, learn and grow!
Armed with information about yourself, you will find it much easier to set clear goals (goals aligned with WHO YOU ARE) and follow through while enjoying the ride!
– Just be yourself!
