I’m convinced most people don’t know who they are. Life conditions us at a young age to suppress our true selves. We suppress ourselves to protect ourselves, to fit in, or even just to make sense of why something did or didn’t happen. Yet at some point the brick wall we’ve built around ourselves begins to hold us back. We’re not really living our best lives.
In this episode I discuss:
- How we lose ourselves
- How we can find ourselves
I’m so excited to share my podcast interview with Rosetta Thurman (my business coach and mentor) of Happy Black Woman. I’m really passionate about helping women (black women in particular) grow themselves so they can live their best life and experience all that this life has to offer. To me that means:
- Rediscovering the truth of who they are beyond the life that happened to them (or better yet for them). Deep reflection is the starting point to rediscovering your true self and positioning yourself to live authentically and purposefully.
- Investing in personal growth continuously. Always be closing the gap between where you are and where you want to be. Attend personal growth events. Start in your own backyard. You don’t have to travel far or spend thousands of dollars. Or check out Rosetta’s events. Read books. Find out one of my favs on the podcast!
- Be interested in finding out if you’re interested. Stop waiting to know with absolute certainty what you should do. You’re not a psychic! Follow your interests and you’ll find yourself.
- Always move on your goals. Never sit on a dream. Don’t give up on your dreams for there are more dreams in the wings waiting for you. Eyes have not seen and ears have not heard….but you’ve got to get moving.
- Get started and stay started. Don’t start and quit, start and quit over and over again. Be consistent. Be diligent.
