Every city in the world has a word that people associate with it. New York City is ambitious, Paris is romantic, and London is stuffy. Likewise, when we think of people in our minds, we generally assign them a word. What is that word? What is that adjective that you use to describe something or someone at first thought? Think about people in your life that you love; what intial word do you use to describe them?
More importantly, what word do you use to describe yourself? I’m not just talking about what your answer to this would be in an interview, rather, I am more interested in what word you use in your own self-talk. What is the first thing you think of when you describe yourself? Is it the word that you want it to be, or is it something different?
Think about this you-word today. Pick an adjective that you most associate with and embrace that word. As you do this, you will start to discover confidence in that word that you never knew before. Embrace that word and allow it to open you up to a new sort of dyanmic living!
