I talk to my clients and students all the time about their unique brilliance. At first people can find the idea of being uniquely brilliant intimidating. We are often taught that it's not OK to claim our greatness. Quite frankly, that just isn't true. It's a myth perpetuated by those who are so afraid to claim their own greatness they don't want anyone else to do it either. That's not what I want for you and the world.
I can promise you that when you connect with your own deep wisdom you will never want to go back to playing small in any way. You truly do have a uniquely brilliant message that will resonate with your ideal clients and make doing business fun and effortless. That message comes from your heart and supports and infuses all of your professional messages. It's reflected in your brand, how you work, who you work with and everything about what you stand for. This is what connects you to the people you will serve best and the higher income that you want and deserve.
When I work with clients, I use a series of processes that leads them directly to the magic of their work that they can express in their Signature Talk. Today I want to share with you six of the questions I use with clients that will help you explore the message that underlies your brilliance.
Take some time this week to journal about the following:
1. What is it that you are here to share with the world?
2. What are you meant to teach people?
3. What have you learned through your own experiences?
4. How are you already serving the world?
5. What is your unique brilliance that sets you apart from the crowd?
6. What do you do that is different (even a little bit) from what everyone else does?
These are big questions so it may take you some time to uncover your answers. Relax around the information and let the answers take the time they take to bubble up for you. If they don't spring immediately to mind, sleep on it! Let the questions marinate in your subconscious. Set an intention that the universe will bring forth answers for you.
