Yet Another Thing I Think I Know About Personal Branding

The more value found in my signal, the stronger it will be.

I think of my signal as how I am perceived by others. Like a radio signal, my signal appeals not to everyone but to certain people.

I think of my value as how I am of service to others. The more I understand and grow it, the easier I can communicate it, and You can connect with it.

So I tune in. I listen to the marketplace and my community for ideas on what I’m signifying with my brand. And I listen to myself.

Who is tuning into me? What am I tuning into? Are there any discrepancies in what I am are hearing and experiencing internally and externally?

When I work on knowing my value, I work on “developing my authentic voice”. My true voice expresses what’s inside me, and my brand. And the more She shares, the stronger my signal is, and the more of You it will reach.

My signal holds a lot of power. So I need to be careful with it, my communications. I need to be mindful of how I connect with you, and how I share my passions, my values, and my talents with you.

When I find I’m not communicating to add value, it’s wise to choose not to broadcast. Thoughtful communications are what serve me and grow my signal stronger.

Our Inner Critic

A reflection of our disdain for authority in our own life.

The things our critic says are likely things we heard from an authority figure.

Things we did not agree with — but heard anyway.

Things that once were someone else’s ideas about us, that have now become our own.

It’s not the truth.

It hurts us anyway.

We hurt when we allow those ideas to have power over us again. Whether they come to us from an external source or from inside.

Our pain is our disdain for the un-truths we believe.

Our pain can be a tool.

If we observe it, it can support us in letting go of what we are holding onto inside.

It can show us where we can create more freedom. From authority. And from our own critical self.

When we drop the disdain, the judgement of authority, we can too drop the pain.

If we let go.

Of thinking we aren’t good enough. Of the stories we tell our self.

Can we accept that all the people in our life, even the most controlling, have added value?

Are we willing to let go of our pain around the authority that hurts us, and release the power our inner critic has over us?

Can we accept that our greatest pain can be our greatest power?
