Years ago I wrote a blog post when for another platform about “upgrading yourself” rather than resolving to be someone else. I am a big believer in goals, intentions, and visions. But, I don’t like the whole “new year, new you” stuff. I think it’s the wrong message.
There is nothing wrong with who you are.
You are the only You and I know that’s woo-woo but it’s true.
One of my clients and top podcaster Cather Heller loves to remind her listeners that “you won the lottery.” The chances that You became You are one in how many million. So, why trade yourself in just because it’s a new year.
I like to think of new goals, intentions or visions as doing an update or an upgrade. My iPhone X is still an iPhone. It can do more things because technology has changed. But, at its core, it’s still an iPhone.
This week, as the remaining promos and discounts claiming to be the key to the new, improved you flood your minds-eye remember you are amazing. It’s ok to Upgrade but there is no need to become something or someone else. The world needs You!
