Most of the time we spend at work we have a mask on.
This mask hides us from the insecurity, dissatisfaction, frustration and discomfort we feel many times in our day to day. But this mask also helps us to hide and thus cover our authentic value, our unquestionable potential and our true importance. And it doesn’t matter what position we hold in the company.
All this is because we have not been taught to connect with the only true resource internal that we all have: LOVE towards ourselves.
Let’s start by recognizing that we are PERFECT in our imperfection, that we are VALUABLE despite the messages from the environment, and that we are IMPORTANT regardless of how many times we undervalue ourselves.
And this is our great job, to make ourselves responsible for seeing ourselves with our own inner gaze like this.
So regardless of the work environment you’re in, whether it inspires you or demotivates you, you can start to establish this new way of looking at yourself, little by little change your look internal, and connect with that source of value, love, and presence that you already have and that you have had buried.
DO NOT look for SUCCESS, and focus on DOING what you have to do, THE BEST YOU CAN and FROM THE HEART. Allow yourself to SHINE from the most authentic and professional part of yourself.
SHINE from your talent, from what you are passionate about, from what you know how to do well, from your strength, from your wisdom, from your intuition, from your courage, from your love for yourself or yourself, from your connection with others, from the DAR.
There lies the beginning of a new way of seeing yourself, of working, a new and transformed way of being and being in your work. From permission to be good at what you do, to be great, to share it and let the world see it.
But always from the heart, if we don’t confuse ourselves and seek the approval of others from our ego…I’m not talking about the approval of others, but about your own approval, about what you really are and how you can raise awareness of yourself and impact your life and your environment in an absolutely incredible way.
Ask yourself before making any decision, sending an email, entering a meeting, starting to negotiate:
HOW WOULD I BEHAVE IF I WERE THE BEST AT WHAT I DO?
This question is profoundly powerful and connects you to that part that SHINES within of you…and that he wants to get out…
In line with what I am telling you, I want to share with you a fragment of the book “Back to Love”, by Marianne Williamson, another of today’s most important spiritual leaders.
Marianne in her book “Back to Love” left us these words:
“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful without limit.
It is our light, not darkness that scares us the most.
We ask ourselves: who am I to be brilliant, beautiful, talented and fabulous?
Really, who are you not to be?
You are a son of the universe.
Playing small does not serve the world.
There is nothing enlightening about shrinking so that other people around you do not feel insecure.
We are born to make manifest the glory of the universe that is within us.
Not just some of us: It is within each and every one.
And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give others permission to do the same.
And by freeing ourselves from our fear, our presence automatically frees others.”
Take a second breath and read it again if you want.
Repose the strength of the words and start giving yourself permission to shine.
