Right time, right face

Do you remember playing pass the parcel as a child? Holding onto the parcel and hoping that the music would stop whilst it’s in your hands. Hoping that you would get the big present in the middle of the parcel?

With both personal and business relationships we need to un-wrap the outer layers to get to the prize at the middle.

The world of business is overflowing with “professionals” who try to be pristine and perfect, but they come across as having suffered a charisma by pass and have as much depth as a cardboard cut out. It’s not about being professional, it’s about being authentic.

When you come from a place of authenticity doors open and people let you in.

When you speak your truth people will trust you.

When you open your heart, it gives permission to those around you to open their heart.

Your authenticity removes the wrapping and is the foundation to your brand.

Ps. I started writing this blog three years ago with a handful of subscribers.

On my website you can’t find my first years worth of blogs because they weren’t very good.

I used to write what I thought people wanted to read. Once I stopped editing my soul I found peace and a few more subscribers: 20,406 to be precise.

A heartfelt thank you for your support.

Humour

A man is at work one day, when he notices that his colleague, an accountant, is wearing an earring.

The guy knows that his colleague is normally a conservative chap, and is curious about his sudden change in “fashion sense.”

So he walks up to him and says, “I didn’t know that you were into earrings.”

“Don’t make such a big deal, it’s only an earring,” he replies sheepishly.

The man falls silent for a few minutes, but then his curiosity prods him to ask, “So, how long have you been wearing an earring?”

“Ever since my wife found it in my car.”
