How easily do you see the good in yourself?
How comfortable are you telling yourself and those around you about the talents you possess, the great things you have achieved, the incredible qualities you have?
I was driving down to the beach with my youngest daughter Ava at the weekend and as we were driving along she asked me what I was really good at.
Fortunately I was conscious and aware enough of the importance of this conversation, that this was a potential turning point in her life and that how I answered could influence the way she thought about herself for a long time.
As a result I didn’t fall into the trap of trying to downplay or dismiss my qualities and my strengths.
I told her that there were lots of things that I am great at. That I am great at explaining things to people and helping them, that I’m great at sport, that I’m one of the best drivers I know, that I’m especially great at figuring out the smart way of doing things and making the things I want in life happen.
She asked me if I was good at everything. And I told her no, that there were also plenty of things that weren’t my talents, but that was completely OK.
She sat there quietly and thought for a few seconds and then told me how she’s really good at maths and English, how her art is fantastic, that she’s really strong and really fast, and how she’s really funny and great at making people laugh.
I know that unless she sees me being completely comfortable seeing and acknowledging the great in myself neither will she.
We talked through how how some people may react against her when she says what she’s great at, but that, that reaction doesn’t change the underlying truth of her talents and gifts.
How the world, HER WORLD, isn’t served by her playing small.
That false modesty is still false. And doesn’t help anyone.
I saw the breakthrough inside of her by making sure she had the right way of thinking installed before the world tries to program her with the wrong way.
You can do this too at any time.
Simply recognise the truth that you have incredible talents and gifts. Acknowledge them. Embrace them.
Because they are part of who you are.
She’s in it to win it ✨ Tomorrow I’m making time to sit down and talk about my journey to how I got to this point in my life. It’s time to talk about my business, my goals, my overall current life status 🔅🍇📸. There’s a ton of curiosity around how I got here. I get a lot of questions about influencer marketing, blogging, photography, social media, and the biggest thing I hear is “wow you’ve made it”. (nope) .
I can definitely appreciate that my efforts look that way. But it’s soooooo far from the truth. Real talk: this is phase 1 of a million more phases I’ll need to get through to get where I want to be. I feel like the wizard of oz most of the time 🤦🏼♀️ The reality behind this entire thing is so much different than opening a box and posting a video with a shopping link. It’s all about three, maybe four major things that mean so much more to me than any of that 🖤 I’ll be sharing the main highlights tomorrow and adding the full video to my IGTV & YouTube channel if you want to watch!
. 🌿 “In my own words” is so much more than a quote, or a blip of my real life, it’s really what this entire thing was created for in the first place. I can’t wait to share my story with you all soon 🙏🏻 #inmyownwords #motherhoodwine
