What does your 'Personal Brand' say about you?
Not your logo or your colours
I’m referring to:
I’m speaking to you about being ‘Who You Want To Be’, decided by you and not by societal or anyone else’s norms.
It's unique, specific and special to you…..Why would you want it to be dictated by others or by thoughts that are not true to you.
Your ‘Personal Brand’ speaks to your character, reputation, values, how you think and what’s important to you. It also outlines how you approach all aspects of your life.
One of the most important elements of your 'Personal Brand' is, the ability to unapologetically be ‘Who You Want To Be’.
For me, my ‘Personal Brand’ is about being certain of myself, without ego or arrogance. It’s a place that feels honest and comfortable. It’s about having respect for myself and others, you will notice it in the way I interact and communicate. It’s taken time and personal development, which has all been worth it. I still enjoy spending time working on developing myself but I’m here, where I want to be and it feels great.
I’d like to share some tips and ideas for you to be able to do the same.
Your ‘Personal Brand’ - How important is it to you?
During lockdown did you spend some time reflecting, challenging some of the ideas you have about yourself and go to work on changing any of these?
The truth is our thoughts, fears, aspirations and dreams don’t go away during challenging times, if anything we become more acutely aware of them.
So here I am offering a new perspective to you, some help in finding ways for you to identify your ‘Personal Brand' and if you aren’t already there some tools to start being unapologetically ‘Who You Want To Be’.
You have a lot to offer no more or less than anyone else. Your views are important so please share them. The people you're speaking to will hear and receive them as you’ve intended. When you share what’s on your mind it will highlight to someone else that they’re not alone or simply offer them new perspectives.
If you shy away from being visible by sharing your views, thoughts or what you know, we’ll never know who you are and what you have to say.
The way you communicate is a key part of your 'Personal Brand'.
When you spend time becoming more self-aware, get to know who you are and become comfortable with what you see, you’re better able to speak with confidence and authenticity.
Being self-assured is a game changer.
When you’re sure of yourself and your values decision making becomes easier, because it just feels right.
Identify 1 or 2 things that you want to improve or change in your life, use your strengths to help you work on the areas you want to change. Ask for help if you need to.
There is no shame in wanting to grow and develop, these are a natural part of life.
How about starting now, work on something daily so you can really start to live a life, being who you want to be openly, honestly and unapologetically.
