I used to think I needed to make myself into someone a little bit better FIRST, before I could let people see the real me.
I thought I had to wait until I had it all together, until I knew what I was doing, until I was more or less competent at all the things—and THEN I could let people see who I really was (because at that point, who I really was would be AMAZING).
But that isn’t how it works.
Because for one thing, I am never going to be perfect. That’s just part of being human: we’re not perfect. We connect in the imperfection and the mess and that’s just how it is.
And for another thing, if you’re pretending to have it all together, you keep yourself APART from everyone else. No one can know you because no one can see you. That doesn’t do anyone any good, not even you.
For me, everything changed when I finally gave myself permission to show up as my whole self. Not my perfect self. (That self doesn’t exist.) Not my pretending-to-have-it-all-together self. (That “self” is a mask and leaves me feeling lonely even in the middle of a group of people.) My real, whole, sometimes scared, sometimes anxious, sometimes distracted, sometimes completely wrong, sometimes ridiculous (often ridiculous) self.
So how do you DO that?
How do you give yourself permission to be who you really are and to show up in all the ways you need to show up? How do you give yourself permission to be “too much” or “too different” or not at all what they expected?
I’ll tell you the whole story in my new book, Permission Granted—and I ALSO thought you could probably use some straight-up TOOLS for giving yourself permission.
So I created Permission Granted: The Essentials.
The Essentials is an audio course that teaches the five tools that I believe are absolutely essential for learning to give yourself permission.
These are the tools that will let you quit trying to be the person you think you’re supposed to be so you can become who you really are.
- A 25 minute audio course (so you can listen while you drive, or while you wash the dishes, or while you do anything at all, this is kind of up to you)
- A printable workbook with exercises for working out your ideas on paper
- A PDF transcript of the whole audio course (in case you’d rather read than listen!)
For FREE Dollars
