HOW TO S.T.A.N.D O.U.T IN LIFE!
Fitting in. That is something that has never appealed to me personally ever since I was a child. I always wanted to be different and stand out. You wouldn’t blame me if you grew up the way I did. I was number 3 of 5 girls and my Mum loved dressing us up in similar clothes for special occasions. If you have ever attended Nigerian parties, you will totally understand where I am coming from.
How can you S.T.A.N.D O.U.T?
START BY KNOWING YOURSELF
This is one of the best ways to stand out in life. In the entire universe, there is only one YOU. No one else talks like you, walks like you, thinks like you and acts like you. Even if you are an identical twin, your likes, dislikes, talents and experiences will not be identical. Make it a priority to discover who you are and uncover all the things that makes you uniquely you. If you operate from a place of authenticity, and not a copy cat, you will shine brightly and be easily noticed even in a crowd of many.
TAKE YOURSELF SERIOUSLY
It grieves me to see a lot of people with so much potential and capabilities play small with their lives because they have low self esteem and lack a deep sense of belief in themselves. Too many of us seek external validation and approval to feel good about what we do and who we are. You cannot stand out if you are insecure. You have to take yourself seriously for others to sit up and take notice. We teach people how to treat us by the way we treat ourselves. You don’t need anyone’s approval or permission to be yourself and do what makes you feel good. Show up as your phenomenal self always and people will become more curious about you. Live with intention and give the best account of yourself always. You are a brand so be an excellent one.
ALWAYS HAVE A POSITIVE ATTITUDE
This is an easy one to note because we have all been in the presence of people that stand out for their negative attitudes and wanted nothing to do with them. Meanwhile, we all can recall the faces of people that lit up a room when the walked in and their pleasant and friendly disposition that made them attractive to warrant our attention and time. Start by smiling a lot. Respect others and display emotional intelligence in all your personal and professional relationships. There are certain people I will never work with because theirs attitudes stink and makes me uncomfortable so I avoid them as much as possible. A positive attitude opens many doors of opportunities for you. Dazzle people with your great attitude and stand out from the pack.
NEVER CHANGE THE CORE OF WHO YOU ARE
DO WHAT YOU LOVE AND INSPIRES YOU
Why should you be ordinary when you can be PHENOMENAL....
That’s us done with Part A of this blog post on how to stand out. Watch out for Part B where I will delve into what O.U.T stands for and how you can make sure you live as the authentic masterpiece you are, fully shining your light and living a phenomenal life.
That is what you deserve and I am here to support you and cheer you on as you journey through life with the right attitude and confidence to be 100% YOU.
