How do you feel in your version 2.0? Your most successful, Rich, loving, impact making, or whatever it is you want to achieve, you?
I am standing in front of an audience, for the first time with this speech. I’m feeling nervous. Can I pull it off? Am I really going to do this? We have had never so many people attend, is what I hear and I swallow. Great, I would not have mind fewer people.
I step into my role
Slowly I start to feel it, and then I take a conscious step. I’m stepping into my confident, well presenting me. That person that has given over hundreds of workshops, and who recalls that those workshops all went well. I am that person, I just tend to forget whenever I need to present a new speech. That person that is capable to respond to the audience, and who realises when someone looks bored, it doesn’t necessarily mean the speaker is rubbish.
Then I ask the audience: “When you are the CEO, the CEO of your life, how does it look like? How do you feel? What do you do? And what don’t you do?”.
Think about it. How does it look for you?
Take a step forward
Now, I ask everyone to stand up. There is some giggling and people shuffle their feet, but in the end, everyone stands.
I ask them to take a step forward.
A step towards their CEO-ship. Some people have put down on a piece of paper on which they wrote ‘CEO’. They step on the paper. Others just take a step forward.
It becomes silent.
Everyone is seated again.
Something has changed. Unremarkable though clearly. It feels lighter.
I see astonishment. I notice relief.
Something has changed in that one minute
People tell me:
I feel more powerful.
I am more confident.
My self-doubt has disappeared.
I thought I am just going to do it.
One step, that was all it took.
One step to experience, that what is already inside of you.
To reach that power that you have in you, taking back control, and standing up for your true value.
To do it your way.
Allowing you to make more impact in less time.
One step to be the CEO of your life.
Take that step forward
Would you also like to experience this? I’m here to help. Book a focus call with me, in 30 minutes we will discuss what it is you need to take that step.
P.S.: When you have read my story attentively, you may have noticed that I also took a step into my speaking role. A good CEO is also able to speak well :-). The above-mentioned principle is therefore applicable to many areas in your life. Do you want to experience this as well? Send me a message or directly book an appointment.
