Monday Musings: Staying True to Who You Are!

By
Services for Real Estate Pros with Napa Consultants DRE00893924

In our Sunday mastermind, our friend mentioned that in his coaching of one of his business clients, his advice was simple, do what would feel good to her.  

 

She was knee deep in a lawsuit, the trial was coming up. This was causing her usual good natured self deep angst and unhappiness.  

 

After some deliberation on her part, she realized that she was under the influence of society, instead of her own true self, and her way of dealing with problems.  

 

She fired her attorney, and ended the law suit in one fell swoop, even though she had a winnable case.  For her, this was the path that felt best and resolved her angst and problems.

 

Feeling good about who you are is staying true to who you are!  There is nothing to defend and nothing to change for the sake of looking good to someone else!  If you make a change, it comes from your inner self and not from an outside influence.

 

 

"be yourself- not your idea of what you think somebody else's idea of yourself should be."

~ Henry David Thoreau

 

 

"It is better to be hated for what you are than to be loved for something you are not."

~ Andre Gide

 

 

"When you understand who and what you are, your radiance projects into the universal radiance and everything around you becomes creative and full of opportunity."

~ Harbhajan Singh Yogi

 

 

"I was once afraid of people saying, “Who does she think she is?” Now I have the courage to stand and say, “This is who I am."

~ Oprah Winfrey

 

 

"Accept everything about yourself - I mean everything, You are you and that is the beginning and the end - no apologies, no regrets."

~ Henry A. Kissinger

 

Wishing Everyone a Wonderful Week Ahead!

All great quotes to reflect upon.  Thank you for sharing them with us.  Getting to the point that you can say, "This is who I am," can be quite a road.

Sharon Lee They are snapdragons!  We were surprised that they were a trailing variety, because most snapdragons I have seen are like soldiers straight up and down.  And the color combination is amazing. A

Raymond Henson, eXp Realty You are so right about it being a road.  When my father passed away, my mother had to find her own identity.  She married young (18), became a wife, a mother, a research librarian, a head librarian in an iconic food company, a grandmother...They were all identities and labels...A

Alexandra, just loved ...loved this post... I am all about being true to myself even at the cost of loosing friends who I do not really consider friends... they are just acquaintances... I have eliminated a few on this platform because they were and are phoney  ballony people..thye  talk from their mighty thrones but when the shit hits the fan they would be underground and I supported them over the years but I learned to eliminate them and I know they know who they are... but  I feel good the negative energy they gave to me was not worth it... I wish AR would bring back the blocking button and I would not even need to see their faces and their phony comments:))Endre

I have seen many situations where it is a lot easier on our peace of mind to just let things go rather than fight and feel that we won.

Great advice! Avoid being involved in lawsuits. You are right, the winners are the attorneys. You likely remember our issue at Stoneleaf when our HOA was sued by a developer...and we were named personally, as outspoken members who opposed his plans. At any rate, it ended fine, but oh the unnecessary drama and trauma. Ha.

Debb Janes EcoBroker and Bernie Stea JD I do remember your relief at having this over with.  Years ago we joined a class action law suit involving a company we invested in.  They settled and our portion of the large 7  figure settlement was $5.  Filling out all the forms took several hours.  Now when we get those types of notices we let Shrooder eat them in its shredder teeth.  LOL A

I love this post. Good for your friend for taking control of her situation and doing what worked best for her. We should all be doing that. Life is truly so short, and we need to live OUR journey in OUR way.

This is great advice. It is easy to get caught up in hype or what others think. You really have to examine the WHY.
