Have you ever just wanted to fit in more? Have you ever wished people just got you and understood what you’re all about?
If you’re sitting there thinking yes, then chances are good you’re surrounding yourself with the wrong people.
In today’s episode of She Takes on the World TV, I’m going to talk to you about the power of being a black sheep and why fitting in just might be getting in the way of your success. (Trust me, I’ve got the pantsuits to prove it.)
I’m going to share some hard-earned advice, including how to lovingly set boundaries with well-meaning friends and family who just don’t get it and the number-one thing you must do now to stop feeling like the black sheep in your group, plus one BIG DECISION that made all the difference for me when I was feeling like a total failure at fitting in.
Jim Rohn, an entrepreneur and one of my favorite motivational speakers once said something that really stuck with me…
You really are the average of the five people you spend the most time with.
So my actionable for you, my fabulous black sheep, is to ask yourself: Who am I spending the most time with right now? Are these people raising me up or are they dragging me down? Do I feel understood and accepted or desperate to fit in?
Then take one some small step to find YOUR tribe, like looking for a Meetup in your area, or finding a conference or event where you’re likely to meet like-minded people. Be sure to share what you plan to do in a comment below.
Climb out of your shell a little and I promise – you’re going to find people who feel like your people. There are lots of us out there who can’t wait to meet you and love you just for being you.
