Do you spend a hell of a lot of time trying to be good at the things you suck at?
Trust me, I’ve been there. I lived in that space for most of my life- trying to be the person who could organize papers, the person who was detail oriented, the person who knew where everything is.
I tried to fake it, and I felt inadequate and ashamed every day. Frankly, it didn’t get me very far: it just spiralled me further and further into shame, and left me drifting further and further from where I was meant to be.
But here’s the thing: why did it HAVE to be that way? Why did I HAVE TO FIT that box?
Why couldn't I be somewhere where my own skills and gifts- my creativity, my ideas, my intuition, my coaching skills, my ability to counsel, my approachability, my patience, my compassion, my ability to 'read the room', my ability to make people feel safe, my passion for advocacy, my writing skills-- were valued?
And guess what? When I started to actually lean into what my strengths are, when I dropped the struggle and stopped trying to be who I wasn’t… to get good at what I was bad at… my life took off. My career took off. And finally, I felt happier, healthier, and more fulfilled than I ever have.
And I want to help you get there too. Listen to this episode to learn how I did it, and how you can get there too!
