Sadly, many people have the belief that if they reveal who they really are, it will
scare others away or be so horrible that no one will want to know them.
Many seemingly normal people believe this about themselves. In my work as a Life
Coach, I’m constantly amazed at the number of people who have these limiting beliefs
and who are always modifying themselves so as to blend in and be acceptable.
This problem is so widespread that what we have in our society is vast numbers of
people restraining their personalities to fit in with other people who are doing the
exact same thing. Very few people are confident enough to be themselves when
they are with others and sometimes even when they are alone.
A far more empowering way to be in society would be for everyone to just be who
they are. Some people will like you and some won’t but that happens even when you’re
trying to not be you so you may as well relax, be who you really are and remove the
stress of maintaining the pretence.
When you start honoring the person you really are, living your life with integrity and
truth, things change…for the better. The best way to live your life is to be
confident and proud of who you are, the journey you are on and the things you have
experienced and learned from.
It is not helpful to compare yourself to other people – you are not other people.
Everyone has their own journey and their own lessons and when you compare
yourself to others, it is usually in an unfavourable light which creates disempowerment
An important thing to remember also is that you never really know what another person
is thinking about you. You are not a mind reader and when you try to guess what is
in someone else’s thoughts you will be influenced by what you believe about yourself.
We very rarely see ourselves as others see us and usually we are much harder on ourselves
than others are. And remember, it’s actually none of your business what others
think of you, just as it’s none of their business what you think of them…
What I always work towards with my Life Coaching clients is rock solid self esteem and
self worth. When you have that deeply entrenched belief in your own value as a human
being, you can achieve anything…that’s right, anything!
When you give yourself permission to shine, to be who you really are, your life leaps
forwards in the most incredible and unexpected ways – all of it good!
Let me help you find that deep well of self esteem and self worth so you can let your
