“Every person you meet, every single one, is looking for their story.”
~ Inspired by every person you meet.
One of the biggest mistakes you can make if you’re trying to figure out how on earth to tap into your own uniqueness: copy-catting other people based upon how they flow in their uniqueness.
Shoot. When you still are trying to find (and express) your voice, don’t do that.
I’m going to contradict myself just a pinch here because I myself had to follow a lot of people’s work before I figured out what I was meant to do. What distinguishes what I did from deliberately copying is that I used their success as inspiration. I realized that and it helps me I operate more freely in my own creativity now.
I know that you have immense potential, and just maybe you have been exercising all your abilities and skills with much success. Alternatively, you might still be struggling creatively. Do any of these types of challenges sound familiar?
Common Blocks that Inhibit You
You have to do what you have to do, and so you compromise, taking a less than okay job. As a result, there’s no time left to pay the bills and do what you really long to do.
You have too much to do, but you spend far too much of your time aimlessly perusing the internet, or watching Once Upon a Time and you end up writing mystical nonsense like this.
You feel frustrated or blocked in some other way because of some internal turmoil.
Whatever the case may be, it’s keeping you from living in the fullness that is you. It’s keeping you from all the wonderfulness of an inspired life full of the passionate world-changing, people-helping, business-thriving, and creative career-making that’s in store.
Even if you know what you’re good at and you envision your future clearly, you have to start by speaking it. You have to breathe life into it (that’s the meaning of “inspire” by the way) and you have to have the voice to do that.
Questions that Will Help You Find Your Voice
- What do people ask you for help with already?
- How do they talk about you?
- What did you do well in your previous jobs? This includes side gigs and odd jobs too.
- What types of places did you work for?
- If you ever did something solo, what made you excel in that?
- What words did people use to positively describe you, your characteristics, and your work ability?
When you give that some thought about what you are and have always been good at, you stop going against the grain and start working your way up your own ladder to success.
Someone referred to me as a life coach a few weeks ago. And although that’s not what I do (but it’s not too far removed) I was very encouraged by that kind of feedback. Translation: life coaches help people, and I can say that’s certainly what I want to do.
I should add that what people say about you will not be the final word that dictates what you say and do. It should only help give you a sense, a fresh perspective that can feed back into your consciousness, a breath of fresh air to breathe in as you breathe out your inspired words–
—into your career, your passion, your business, and your life.
In hopes of your expressive, fullest life,
How do you express yourself and share the work that you do? And just what is your work? Speak up. Tell me in the comments, why don’t you?
