I’ve probably mentioned that change takes time and how you should feel about it.
Not long ago I found myself in a spot I was uncomfortable with. I wanted to create a network within my community to share and think differently about the subject.
I then went out into the world with a new approach. My new approach included being open to the fact that there are many people who could benefit from my services. With this new approach, I now viewed my world differently and had detached from the outcome. Too many of us attach our self worth to the approval of others. When we let go of that everything becomes easier, we just allow ourselves to be.
Once I removed myself from thoughts that they needed to understand interest. Suddenly many people were interested in my services. Others just wanted to chat with me more about what I do. The people who weren’t interested didn’t seem to matter. I was okay with that too. Did I look for approval? No. Did I plan it? No. Did I make it happen? No. By allowing yourself to be who you are, you can change how you are perceived, simply by the power of your presence.
Even if you don’t have your own business, changing your thoughts and employers alike. Give it a try; you may be surprised by the results.
