With the coming of the new day, I had a pretty solid reminder of my values. This little story may help you with something you are stuck on too.
Yesterday, I was working hard to create an email subscription campaign. It would be nice to have a group of people that want to receive my blogs directly. Anyhow, I created the emails, the landing page, the welcome email and more… The thing is, it felt a little strange. I’m not sure how else to explain it but it just felt weird.
If you know me, you’d know that I’m a big believer in intuition and trusting your gut instincts. All things are answered in the right time. So, I slept on it.
This morning I woke to the realisation that I was not keeping it real. One of my strongest values that I honour is authenticity and being real.
Whilst creating my email subscription list, I was romanticised by what others did in theirs. I was writing what I thought others wanted to hear rather than staying true to what I’m doing. Honestly speaking, it can be challenging to summarise it into a pretty little paragraph though.
I love motivating and encouraging people to give it a go and be their best. I love providing people with the skills to empower themselves and others. I want to spread positivity and love in our world.
I also understand that to reach my goals and dreams, I also need to speak truth. Much of this truth is confronting in nature. But to be able to move forward into the future as a more united people, these stories and knowledge must be shared.
I want to talk about inspirational stories, love, respect and self-empowerment. I also want to address human rights issues related to Aboriginal affairs as well as women & children’s rights. It’s not your average combination of topics, but then again, I’m not your average type of person. Haha!
So it’s back to the drawing board for me.
I am dedicated to remaining true to myself and my values so that I can be real with you and serve you to the best of my ability.
If you’ve got something you are feeling stuck on? Take a moment to think if it is a misalignment with one of your core values. If you’re willing to share your story, I’d love to hear it.
And of course, if you want to subscribe to my email list, please comment “Yes Please” in the comments below. When my subscriber campaign is aligned with values and is true to what I’m about, I will add you to it.
Until then, Keep it real folks.
