If you present yourself as you are
and confidently own up to how you feel and what you think and believe to be true
you will be much more successful
even if people disagree with you.
People have a great radar to sense if something is off
So if you don’t expose the elephant in the room, your vibe will and it’ll be much more uncomfortable and painful for everyone.
That’s why you see people avoiding the truth
beating around the bush for as long as they can until something either implodes or they finally give in and speak the truth.
The same goes for self-honesty.
People lie to themselves all the time, all day long.
Everyone has at least one elephant-shapped cloud
hanging above their heads that they avoid eye contact with. They try 1000 other ways to deal with their issues instead of going for the obvious one.
Be honest about what’s off.
Take advantage of the fact that human intuition is so good at sensing that something has to be fixed.
Are you happy on a day to day basis?
Yes or no and why not?
Do you feel good around the people in your life?
Do you feel good about what you do?
And how you do and how well you do it?
And the person you've chosen to be?
And the way you seem to be headed?
Act as if you were hired as a management consultant
Think about what advice you'd give someone in your position
It's guaranteed to be ugly and painful no matter what.
It's only going to get uglier and more painful
So you might as well face it head on.
If you wait any longer.....
you'll just waste more time not being great
