Have you ever paused the madness of your personal and professional life only for the purpose of pondering your authentic essence?
es·sence ˈ- “the intrinsic nature or indispensable quality of something, especially something abstract, that determines its character.”
Simpler said: “What do you stand for?”
When you invite people into your life as friend, client, partner, associate, neighbor, acquaintance, what are they “getting?”
What’s in it for them to have you in their lives?
What qualities do you ooze that attract the right people into your life?
I hereby challenge you to “save a date” 2 weeks from your first reading of this blog post as a deadline for identifying all the words you can which describe your essence. Write them where you will see them frequently – on a white-board or clip board that you carry with you,
If you get “stuck”, feel free to call a friend, family member, or work associate to ask them what THEY think they get through their relationship with you.
If you REALLY want to get the most out of this “exercise”, gather a group of your favorite people to do this with you thereby adding an oft necessary component commonly known as “ACCOUNTABILITY”
Upon reaching the “deadline”, assemble all of your essence words and distill them down to no fewer than 3 and no more than 7 of these about yourself:
quintessences – “the most perfect or typical example of a quality or class.”
Now that you know (better) who you are, what you stand for, and your true benefit to others . . . claim this power within and do MORE of all that and less of the other stuff every minute of every day from here until eternity.
THIS is where the rubber meets the road in terms of authenticity as you serve the right people at the right times without judgement and regret.
Truth telling writ large . . .
Will you do this and let me know how it goes?
