Day 4 Never mind how you have been previously cast. You are done with being seen as the work mom, work wife or your company’s fixer – Olivia Pope, or any other ridiculous role they have plugged you into.
Here we go – you are stepping into work today and in a big or small way you are going to show the real you.
My aunt Corrine even when she was well into her 80’s used to be able to walk into a room and everything would stop. She had this click to her step, the angle she held her head at – gleminginy friendly eyes and a killer smile. Men admired her women wondered what that quality was that she had and everyone instantly felt like they had a great new friend
You don’t have to be my Aunt Corrine.
So you’ve journaled on how you want to be seen. Today you are going to try it out. It can be a meeting or a simple conversation but you are going to intentionally bring in an action that will get you closer to how you want to be seen.
Choose something from your ideal that you will do today. Speak up in that new way. Do some small action that gets you closer to your ideal version of how you want to be seen. Do something to shaw the real you!
The funny thing about this is if you have spent the time to deeply think this through the awkward part isn’t this new behavior. The awkward part is letting go of the old behavior that you have been hiding behind.
Hiding feels bad because you are not playing a game. It can also feel comfortable even though it feels bad. Releasing how you want to be seen the real you is actually a relief. It will become easier and easier with each step you take into sharing yourself with others.
Now, Im going to warn you – some people – the ones who want to keep you small – the ones who see you as a work wife, work mom or even your companies Olivia Pope – the fixer may not like this at first.
Who cares? You are not the work mom work wife or fixer – you are so much more.
Go into to work today and show them who you really are.
