I know from my own experience how worrying about what other people thing can crush the dreams and hope out of us.
When it comes to our career/ business, we end up doing what we think we should do to gain approval in the eyes of others – and (sadly) gaining self-validation through this.
We postpone that career change or starting that business.What will my manager/ colleagues think? If I walk away from this great job role, will my value be diminished? What will my high-achieving peers/ parents/ family friends think?
We agonize over doing that video blog post (oh yeah, that resonates!) What if they think I sound an amateur?
We question stepping up & being BOLD with our dreams (yep, that resonates too). Will people think I’m an arrogant so and so? Have I really ‘earned’ my rights to do this?
POINT IS THIS: We let ourselves be ruled by what others think and stay in Stuck City. And we all know Stuck City is a sad, desolate place. If we want our pass out and have the self-conviction to follow our truth – the only way we can experience our true greatness – we need to shake up our perspective on the ‘what other people think’ situation….
In today’s vlog, I answer the first BURNING QUESTION from Annabel whose been grappling with this issue for a while. She opens up to how caring about what others think is getting her wildly off track- and I really open up about WHY this is, HOW it held me back too, and WHAT I did to keep fear at bay and have the courage to be true to myself and build the career and business I really want.
It’s a longer than usual one because well- it’s such a juicy topic and I’m kinda passionate about it – but all the more goodness for you.
