Celebrate Your Uniqueness – TPS526
While reading Spellbound by Dr. Dan Lieberman, who I interviewed in the last episode, I was struck by the sentence, “The purpose of life is to become your true self”. I have been thinking about that a lot and, in this episode, I share some of my thoughts.
Although you may share some characteristics with other people, no one is exactly like you. You are totally unique and perfect the way you are.
We are programmed to always be looking for people like us, yet it is our differences that can make life interesting.
I don’t think that our uniqueness has been celebrated enough.
A lot of our societal loneliness is due to people not knowing how to know love themself.
We aren’t taught to appreciate our differences.
For business people, our businesses are an opportunity for us to learn more about ourselves.
Because of the Covid pause, a lot of people are evaluating their lives and what’s important to them. They’re also asking, “What do I want to do now and who do I want to be or become?”
I talk about the process I’ve been going through in putting together my new business.
In business, we have to learn how to interact with other people who are not us.
Everything you do in business is your opportunity to learn more about who you are, your values, and who you were willing to be in the world.
Giving ourselves permission for self-exploration is one of the greatest gifts we can give to ourselves.
You have the right to love and take care of yourself.
Each one of us is given what we need to become who we’re becoming, and that’s different for every person.
You have the opportunity to ask yourself, “What do I want to keep and what do I want to change?” It’s important to not judge that which you want to change as bad.
Getting in touch with yourself is one of the most important things you can do.
