Have you ever thought about forgiving yourself? I hadn’t either. In this episode, I talk through my thoughts after learning of this concept.

Be A Legend In Your Own Mind

“Be A Legend In Your Own Mind” is chapter 28 in 52 Ways to Live a Kick-Ass Life: BS-Free Wisdom to Ignite Your Inner Badass and Live the Life You Deserve by Andrea Owen that has stuck with me since I read it a few years ago. When I read that book, I created my own study guide to work through all of the topics I was reading about. This chapter is the one that stuck with me the most, and I printed the page from my study guide and hung it next to my makeup area. I see it every single day.

When we think of legends we think of people who are known across the world for one thing or another. Being a legend doesn’t mean you have to reach that level. Andrea Owen wrote a chapter in her book 52 Ways to Live a Kick-Ass Life: BS-Free Wisdom to Ignite Your Inner Badass and Live the Life You Deserve that has impacted my life for the years since I read it. I want to share with you how it has impacted me.

I’ve recently realized that I and so many of you, overuse the word need. I am talking about how I see the difference in these two words.

Our Many Personalities

I feel like there is a stigma around the topic of having multiple personalities depending on our situation. As you heard that, I bet you thought of the mental health definition of multiple personality disorder, but that’s not what I’m talking about. What I’m talking about is the difference between our personality with one group of people or person compared to our personality with another person or group of people.

Each of us molds ourselves into the different situations that we are in, some of us more than others. I am definitely one of those people and I recently realized how bad it is. I am challenging myself to unite all the different piece of my personality into one whole me.

Do What It Takes

I want to talk about careers today. I’ve been doing so much personal growth, but I haven’t talked about the part of my personal growth that is impacted by my career growth. Some people may tell you that these two things are separate, but I disagree. When you grow personally, you grow in all things that you do. When you grow professionally, you are growing as a person as well. 

I’ve mentioned a couple of times that I was promoted at the end of 2020 and that I have a tall order to evolve the teams that I lead. There are a lot of quotes and definitions from many leaders and coaches about what makes a great leader and I can go blue in the face talking about those things, but today I want to talk about one thing that I think any good leader would do. That thing is doing what it takes.

What does “do what it takes” mean to you? I’m doing what it takes to maintain output from my team, which means I made adjustments to my life to make it happen. Are you doing what it takes?

You’ve Changed

You’ve changed. I can hear people saying that about me right now, and I am pretty sure some of those closest to me don’t like the changes I’ve been making in my life. Change happens to each of us. It’s what we do with that change that determines the course of the rest of our life. Yes, I’ve changed, and I am still evolving. I am always changing and growing and changing. If I don’t allow myself to change for fear of what friends, family, or even acquaintances think, then I am not true to myself.

Change is inevitable, whether we embrace it is not. I am choosing to change and evolve and it means that I might be changing away from people that I’ve been close with. Sometimes this change is exactly what we need to move to the next level.
