I’m as much of a self development junkie as the next hopeful entrepreneur - especially on the first day of a new year. It feels like a big ole blank slate, just waiting to be highlighted and calendared and sticky noted into perfection!
THIS is MY year. THIS is when it all changes. When I finally implement all the things, and consistently perform them the RIGHT way.
But, that’s a lot of pressure to put on yourself, right?
What if instead of New Year, NEW You, we went with New Year - MORE you. Sharing more of what makes you special. Letting people in, and showing them that they’re not alone. Being open and honest about our journey, with the intent of helping others move forward in theirs.
You can help them, because you WERE them. More often than not, your ideal client is a mini you - who you were before you discovered the solution to what you were struggling with 3 years ago. That’s why you’re such a good fit for them!
If we stop worrying about reinventing ourselves completely just because the calendar changes, and lean into who we ACTUALLY are, there is freedom in that. And, (bonus!) we won’t be slouching on the couch eating ice cream by the 2nd week of January because we failed at all we took on.
We will continue to move forward, sharing our message and influencing others positively with our message.
I’m not saying you shouldn’t put that budget in place, or join that health challenge, or sign up for that course you’ve been wanting to join. I’m all about growth!
But let’s take off some of that pressure, and not insist that THIS is the year everything changes.
Let’s use our social media channels to share more of ourselves, shining a light on normal, and inviting our followers to share themselves as well. That’s how we connect and create real relationships.
What do you think, does that take some of the weight off of the whole New Year, New You thing? Let me know what this means to you.
