Last week, you learned how to reveal yourself. Here’s the next step in your Executive Evolution:
Stand for yourself.
You have all the answers within yourself.
How great is that? Now you just have to do the work to find the answers. They don’t come easy, but once you crack the code, you’re golden. You’ll likely need the help of others to find these answers.
For example, I am not you. It is quite likely that you exist within a framework that does not allow you to have what you want. I do not. Inside my framework, what you want is totally possible. So, it’s unlikely for you to hang out with me without change – without getting what you want – because I don’t “buy in” to your limiting framework, I won’t believe (or co-sign) your B.S… and soon you won’t either. Hear me on this one: Find someone who cares enough to call you on your “stuff.” Your Limiting Lies.
This is why searching for the latest/greatest strategy, technique, tool, trend will fail you every time… grabbing desperately for any lifeline or distraction won’t work either. At best, these will provide only temporary relief. Because you are focusing out instead of in. When you focus out, you aren’t standing for yourself. You’re asking for the answers outside, and you will NOT find them there.
This is where a coach comes in. They guide you to do the work to find out who you are and what you want. Just make sure the coach you choose has the chops and the successful exec’s and businesses behind them to prove it.
Standing for yourself requires the decoding of the relationship you have to create success in your area of challenge – PLUS figuring out what you’re truly more committed to – succeeding or not succeeding. You’re going to get infinitely curious about the stories you tell yourself and if they benefit you. Along the way, of course, you’ll make sure your business strategies and tactics are sound and workable – we ARE business people, after all.
At this point we’re talking about aligning all the parts of you that are in conflict with what you want for yourself and your company and your life. But I’ll cover more on that 3rd step (align) next time. For right now, I want you to focus on Step 2 – Stand for Yourself. And begin to surround yourself with a coach and a team that facilitates this and inspires you.
It’s profound. Be SURE you’re ready. If you ARE ready, then having a coach who can help you figure out what you stand for – and what you don’t – is key. I will MAKE room in my BAI program for you this July, IF you are serious. (And I’ve added new dates all over the country if the West Coast isn’t your thing!) Teaching my Mighty Formula for Executive Evolution is MY “stand” for Christine.
