This week has been an amazing time here on Beyond Brave. A friend of mine left a comment that said “You sound so at peace in these posts.”
The last few weeks I have been on this journey with God. Just feeling His amazing Love and wrapped in His Holy Spirit knowing that I’m at peace with where God has me and trusting Him and only Him to what He has ahead for me.
Some of this incite of who I am and what God created me for came from my dear mentor and friend Tami Heim. She did a session at the Blissdom Conference this year called – Branding YOU: The Journey from the Inside Out. I’m excited to say she’ll be speaking at She Inc. in June!! Woo Hoo!!
She’s been sweet enough to allow me to share some of this framework with you. I encourage you to come back if it becomes a little overwhelming and break this down in bite-size pieces. I promise you you won’t be disappointed.
Part One – The Journey from the Inside Out
Identify Your Core Values
Develop a list of core values that represents what is more important to you and then rank them in order of priority. Use Core Value worksheet.
List Your Strengths
Identify four or five of your greatest strengths. Strengths are those talents assessed using formal measuring tools, have been acknowledged or affirmed by others who know you well, or describe a state of being which gives you the most energy. See Strengths reference guide.
Part Two – Being You
In this section, we were to list priorities and goals and the impact success in achieving these would have on others.
Two of mine were:
Goal: Amazing Wife
Impact: Loving and Lasting Marriage
Goal: Kids that are on fire for God
Impact: Generational Heritage and Godly Legacy
Then we were to construct an “I AM” statement. Who you are, what you do, and how it impacts others. Make this a blend of your strengths and core value selections.
Here is mine:
“I AM a passionate wife and mother who desires to be authentic and effective. I desire to encourage those around me through humility, gratitude and kindness.”
Your own Being You Worksheet
Part Three: The Merger of Your Reality and Their Perception
Behaviors follow thinking. Extraordinary behaviors follow extraordinary thinking. You choose. The consistency of what you do will work to align your reality with the perception the world has of you. List specific behaviors that reinforce and reflect your stand.
Here are mine.
4. Life in the present
Don’t forget to leave me a comment letting me know what your I AM is.
See you next week!
