Today, I'm embracing my quirks and it may seem contradictory to what I usually say.
In my best-selling book 'Expert Unrivalled' and sell out programme Expertology, I give you an exercise to complete. In the exercise you take someone you truly admire and write down all the qualities that you admire about them. You then write down ways in which you have demonstrated them in the past and how you can harness those qualities in the future. It's certainly a powerful exercise!
But there are times when no matter how much you admire a quality is just doesn't come naturally to you and actually that point of difference, that quirk, when you embrace it as a strength, it could be your ticket to your future success.
So today I'm declaring a quirk that I'm embracing, accepting and harnessing...
***Quality I admire in others - ' Grace'.
I've never had much luck with grace (in my mind it's that quiet leadership that's powerful and respected)...
... even as a child, I was referred to as a 'fairy elephant'. Whilst I do indeed demonstrate grace in certain situations, on the whole, I'm excitable, passionate and loud with it.
But the thing is, I've been told that my passion is infectious and being that my greatest attribute is being motivational, without this quirk, I don't truly believe I could utilise this superpower.
Forget quiet power, it's just not me... bring on the loud passion and the childlike excitement!
Quiet has never been part of my DNA. Strong, loud, passionate and excited oh so definitely is. And for creating a movement of powerful entrepreneurs who own their worth, expertise and uniqueness, these are all incredible strengths.
This quirk allows me to be BOLD in the face of uncertainty and it allows me to motivate and inspire. It allows me the ability to shine a huge beaming light on what makes people 'unique and special'. It allows me to be brutally honest (with an arm around the shoulder) with my clients, and most of all it allows me to be truly me.
