Last night at dinner I was thinking about Labor Day Weekend here in the U.S. when it just struck me funny that ...
(Ok, so I added an "s" but work with me on this one ... "work with me"...get it! LOL!)
Seriously, we expend so much energy and effort trying to be "perfect" and "right" in every situation that we easily loose our true ourselves. I can just hear Dr. Phil say, "And how's that working for ya?"
I lost part of myself in my marriage in my
mid-20s that made me realize it wasn't worth it. It took some "work" to reclaim myself, but it's been the best investment in my happiness I've ever made.
Not only did my personal life improve, but so did my career at AOL. It's been a boon to my journey
as an entreprenuer as well.
Now, everywhere in my life, I'm the "real Mary". I'm not faking it at all, and lovin' it! It's so
much less work and what's really been fun is being around others who are their real selves, too.
So, this Labor Day Weekend, stop working so hard at pleasing others or being someone you're not. Be your fabulous, bodacious real self and invite others to do the same. Now, that's the making of a good party!
Happy "Let's All Be Our Real Selves" Weekend!
P.S. - If your current job isn't letting you be your real self, my "6 Steps To Win the Job You Really Want" audio workbook package could really help. It's dirt cheap, too, but only through Monday. Same for my remaining CDs that could help you in your business and career. Check it out here
