A woman said to me last week, “I’m working on living the life I desire, not the life I’m supposed to show up for.”
Wow. Her words hit me right in the gut.
Isn’t THIS what it’s all about?
Letting go of everything you’ve been taught you were SUPPOSED to want and instead showing up to live the life you ACTUALLY want?
And let’s get this clear right now – living the life you desire IS NOT SELFISH, for so many reasons.
One – When you’re happy and filled with joy for life, you show up better for other people.
Two – When you throw away the rules you’ve been taught and create your own rules for life, you break barriers. You become a change maker.
Three – When you stop worrying about doing what is “right” you do MORE good in the world.
Four – When you let go of perfectionism and proving and people pleasing and follow your true inner voice, the voice of your desire, you make an impact. You’ll share a dissenting point of view with your boss. You’ll put the idea out there that you’ve been pondering for months. You’ll write the song or poem or book and share it with the world. You’ll decide your heart is calling you to start a business or run a nonprofit or become a teacher and you’ll go do that thing.
Five – Pleasing others is not the purpose of life. YOU get to create your own definition of success. Impacting others and making a difference is definitely part of that definition, but when you let go of expectations and live the life you desire, that impact comes from your soul. It comes from your truth. It’s driven by mission and purpose, not pressure and standards.
The belief that living the life you desire is selfish is just a lie you’ve been taught.
It’s time to create a new belief.
Thank you for coming to my Ted Talk 😀
THIS is what my new program, Beyond Perfect, is all about. It’s for women that identify as overachievers, overdoers, perfectionists, and/or people-pleasers because this is my story and the story of so many of my coaching clients. These are the challenges getting in the way of so many women living the life they desire and sharing their true voice with the world.
Not the voice you’re “supposed” to share. Not the cookie cutter voice of the overachiever. Not the hustle puppet. Not the imposter voice. Your voice. Your truth.
I’m here to support you every step of the way. Let’s get started.
Registration ends this Friday. See you there!
