I’m a feeler. I live mostly from the right side of my brain, intuitive, somewhat creative, empathic. Introvert. Let me tell you, it’s not easy being this way in a left-brained analytical, goal oriented, extroverted world.
In my last J.O.B.I remember being at staff meetings and making suggestions based on intuition and when asked how I knew the solution, I said, I just know. You can guess how well that went over. They much preferred flow charts, research and measured outcomes.
It would take a week for the staff to come to an answer I had in five minutes. It would be presented in different language but essentially the same thing and now no longer my idea. I never got credit.
Maybe you can relate?
Over the years, I let self-doubt set in and began to question myself. I felt not quite as good.Let me tell you what happened. I got consistent results. I was right more often than not. My clients got better. I started to get noticed.
It took me a while to own my way of being as the way that works for me and to feel confident again. But I got there. I began to hear my confidence in how I used my voice, like I KNEW exactly what I was talking about.
Now I get to live Unapologetically as ME doing what brings me JOY. I want that for you too. I’m not going to sugarcoat it. It does take a healthy does of courage and patience.
But you can do it. I know you can.
