Learning to communicate and express yourself is an ongoing process.
There are so many elements to master, both from a mindset and technical perspective. And, in my experience, just when you think you’ve nailed a skill or got it figured out…something happens that makes you realise: ‘Nope, I still have a way to go’!
That happened to me, and I’m sharing my story on the podcast this week.
As you may know, I’m all about personal and professional development, and I’m always exploring my own thoughts and emotions, to see what is serving me and what is not, what thoughts I need to let go of in order to be happier, more calm, a better mum, wife, friend, communicator, business owner, etc.
Something I’ve been working on very consciously and deliberately is my communication skills. That is, how I craft a message, how I show up, express myself, and engage an audience.
And I thought I was doing really well.
Over the years of speaking, coaching, facilitating, podcasting and learning, I’ve built up a lot of self confidence. I can speak to a large audience easily. I can present to all different types of people. I can happily record a podcast.
But a recent experience made me realise there are still parts of me that do lack confidence, that still care about what others think, and that do hold me back from showing up in the world as my best self.
And, it all started with my hair.
