Don't be afraid to tell your story.
It's what makes you unique.
The skills, knowledge, beliefs, perceptions and experiences you've accumulated along the way are assets that you can use to serve others and make a difference in their lives.
All the situations you've encountered (even, and especially, the challenging ones) give you the ability to understand, care for, and serve others in similar positions.
What you think are you biggest challenges or weaknesses might just be your biggest strengths.
Some of my pivotal challenges/experiences include:
➡️ Overcoming an eating disorder in my teens (which now provides me insight, solutions and empathy for those dealing with disordered thoughts)
➡️ Wanting an abundant life but not having a clue how to get there (I ended up creating a company teaching others the answers I eventually uncovered that allowed me to change my life)
➡️ Moving to the other side of the world on my own (I can understand the resistance people face in relation to taking chances and making big changes in their life)
➡️ Dealing with extreme amounts of senseless online negativity (I learned to back and love myself and tune out the inevitable opinion of others, and know how big of a task it is for others)
➡️ I built a 7 figure company and managed a team of 12 (so can relate to all the challenges, emotions, and weight that comes with this responsibility).
➡️ I lost my partner to cancer at 24 (which provided me not only incredible amounts of compassion for those going through that, but also mass amounts of health knowledge that changed my life and the lives of those around me. It also gave me perspective, gratitude, appreciation and an understanding of how to effectively process grief. It also became a large part of my "why"). Did these experiences seem positive in the moment? Nope. They are when I've felt the weakest at times. But they're also a big part of what make me, me.
Your challenges and experiences are what make you, you. The lessons you learned, perspective and knowledge you gained, and empathy you now possess are your superpowers.
Tell your story. It's one of your most valuable assets. ✨
