When I was a news anchor, we started every day announcing the ratings from the night before.
My mood would fluctuate along with the highs and lows of that feedback.
I took it personally.
Over time I developed a habit of enjoying myself through other people.
I wanted to be liked – my job depended on it.
I started to rely on others’ opinions to feel good about myself, leaving me in a continuous state of trying to please them.
What I thought they wanted became more important than what I wanted.
I started to lose sight of me.
Through coaching, I re-discovered what I genuinely desire in life.
I learned how to like all of me – the good, the bad, and especially the different.
I learned the process of allowing people to think whatever they want.
What do you want in life?
Why do you enjoy being yourself?
What if it’s okay for people to be wrong about us?
