If you want more influence in your world - more clients, more income, more acknowledgment, more of those little perks others seem to get with no problem, commit to your personal development beginning with a crazy honest self inquiry.
Here's one place to start: Know what you're a stand for no matter what.
Do you know what you're a stand for no matter what? When a new client enters my world I want to know what they are a stand for no matter what. This way I hold them to their compass when life happens -which it always does. This is what helps me hold space and help them navigate the deep end.
To create change in your life, you need to know what you unequivocally stand for. Otherwise, you'll be tossed around like a leaky boat without a rudder and no compass to course correct.
When you know what you're a stand for, you have a compass to measure when you're off course.
How do you measure your growth in life? Are you achieving what you set out to do? When you know what you stand for no matter what, you can check in with that thing and ask:
"Where am I not being true to myself? Where am I out of integrity with what I'm a stand for?"
If you've ever been lost in the woods, the desert, or anywhere for that matter- and had the privilege of a little device called a compass- (better yet a map and a compass) - then you know how valuable it is to help you course correct.
A moral compass has the same value.
I'm a stand for integrity and truth no matter what. Ask people what you can count on about 'Stephanie' and they'll tell you, "She'll tell you the truth no matter what."
When I first heard someone say that- I was a bit taken aback. Hmmm people see that. Well isn't it interesting because I AM a stand for the truth no matter what.
Here are 2 reasons why knowing what you're a stand for can help you change your results:
Reason # One
Reason # TWO
*Heads up- a crazy honest self inquiry is not for the faint at heart. It's a real 'come to clarity' opportunity to see it, own it, and make a plan to change it. (whatever 'it' is for you that is taking you off course)' We are gifted with new moments and new mornings to re-commit, start anew, and forge ahead on purpose living our truth and that thing we are a stand for no matter what.
What are you a stand for no matter what? How would you become more influential if you held yourself to this standard ALL the time?
