This week’s marketing strategy doesn’t contain any how-to tips, but I think it’s a message you need – and want – to hear, nonetheless. It’s about that little voice in our heads – our Ego – who constantly tries to keep us safe by wanting us to play small.
However, playing small doesn’t grow our businesses, does it?
I hope you’ll take a moment to listen to the audio recording as well as read the blog post. Most importantly, I hope it inspires you. ♥
I love to create graphics that enhance the learning in my weekly marketing strategies. Please feel free to share these on your social media!
Just who do you think you are. You are getting too big for your britches. Let me remind you that you are just you. You are not Oprah or Sir Richard Branson. You are not Doreen Virtue or Marie Forleo. You are not Brene’ Brown or Louise Hay.
You are you. Who do you think you are?
Have you heard this before? Chances are a version of this has played in your head, in a loop, for years (maybe your whole life).
It’s a voice. Perhaps it sounds like a parent or a childhood teacher. Or maybe it sounds like a past mentor or a friend.
So, let me ask you. Who do you think you are?
I can tell you who I am.
I am a mom. I am a wife. I am a daughter. I am a pet owner. I am a sister. I am an aunt. I am a friend. I am a mentor. I am a volunteer. I am a member of my community.
Oh, and that’s not all.
I am an international bestselling author. I am a marketing coach for one of the best marketing mentors in the business. I am a marketing teacher for my tribe. I am spiritual. I am creative. I am a writer. I am a Lightworker.
I am flawed. I am impatient. I am jealous. I am judgmental. I am scared. I am anxious. I am an introvert. I am an avoider.
I am fat. I am tall. I am vain. I am beautiful.
Who do I think I am?
I am Jill. Every last inch of me.
So, when that little voice creeps into your head and demands to know, “Who do you think you are?”
I want you to answer back: I am ______________. Fill in the blank with all the things you are. Good and bad. Praiseworthy and cringeworthy. Physical and mental. Tell that Ego, that voice, who you are, and what you are – and do so with great pride.
And here’s one final thing to tell your Ego.
I am destined for greatness. I am living my purpose on this Earth. I am making a difference. I am gifted. And I am unstoppable.
