3 ways to stand out without being obnoxious

How we stand out in our communities, our careers and even our families . . . . doesn’t have to be stand-out-in-a-crowd-ten-top-tips-for-getting-an-it-jobobnoxious to matter. 

Sometimes, we may think that in order to stand out, we have to be different or to force ourselves to act in a manner that isn’t truly who we are. And when I say “stand out” I don’t mean the kind of stand out that people get from being obnoxious , rude or pushy. 

I am talking about that authentic charisma that is a result of  finding, honing and standing in your 100% authentic, raw, real truth.

The NO BS truth.

3 ways to stand out WITHOUT being obnoxious, rude or pushy—

1. Be real. Yep—you are enough, you matter, you have a special something, something that no other human has. Just be you!

2. Know thyself. How can you be real if you don’t know who you are? Honestly, this is the first step. You gotta spend time being with you, understanding you, knowing what you love/don’t love, desire/don’t desire. You need to spend time honing in on exactly what it is that makes you tick, tock and transcend. 

3. Be courageous, take chances, be a big weird-o.  You can’t be “in your zone” and move onto your next level of growth and awareness when you are stuck in the same comfort zone. Standing out may require you move through some fears, take some chances and put yourself out there (and yes,  you may get rejected! It’s ok, remember #1—your are enough)

Our lives have become over busy, right? And what we need to do, is calm down, get clear about what we desire and then we need to choose that—daily. Daily choosing what we love and then rinse, repeat and revisit. 

If you want love, choose to love and be as much about love as you can be.

If you want a bigger e-mail list or to sell more books—then how about just being super real and connecting from that place that is really you. Do it because it radiates YOU so deeply that people can’t say no.

Do it from the inner depths of your sweet little soul.

Dig deep, breath into the essence of you really are–you light filled super human you—and then let that shine through in your work, your love, your interaction with the check out clerk, the way you talk to your kids, the energy you infuse into you food, your home, etc…..

YOU GET TO CHOOSE HOW YOUR LIFE LOOKS AND HOW YOUR LIFE FEELS. IT’S ALL YOU BABY.

So choose, choose, choose wisely (and courageously, lovingly and with purpose)
