It seems like we, collectively, are forgetting to think for ourselves. Or maybe it feels too risky to do things differently.
But the most impactful things happen when someone thinks completely differently. The magic is when your unique brilliance, your unique perspective is put front row and center.
I firmly believe that the world needs each and every one of us… but not if we’re carbon copies of each other. Your community wants to see what makes YOU different. They want to see why they should pick you above the rest.
How to connect to your own vision and uniqueness:
Connect with people outside your industry and in real life
Block off time to think about what you really want
Work with people who expand your perspective
Think about what you do and why — think outside the box
Can this be scary? Yes, of course. Imposter syndrome is real. But if you’re forever doing what everyone else is doing then you’ll never overcome those feelings. There is courage in sticking your neck out. In declaring or asserting something that no one else is. It’s going to feel vulnerable. But it’s the only way to become an innovative leader.
You don’t need to do what everyone else is doing. You have a unique way of positioning yourself. You just have to sit down, get out there, and figure out what it is.
