I’ve heard this a million different ways.
“In order to speak better in public, imagine that your audience is a bunch of coconut trees.” “To overcome your fear, imagine that they are all naked.”
“Love and Acceptance”
From my interview with Corissa, I realized that these are two things that we always strive to achieve and to give. We are so driven by external successes that we oftentimes forget to give these things to ourselves first.
To do this, tap into who you are. Accept who you are and love that person.
When done this way, we eliminate all insecurities and we are able to give wholeheartedly.
This made sense to me. If I am comfortable with who I am, shortcomings and all, I never have to worry about acceptance from others. I should be enough, right?
“Becoming better means going deep into your soul to find what you want and what you’re made of,” Corissa once said.
Being vulnerable and connected to who we are should always come first. This mindset allows us to be more genuine to the people we interact with. Before even getting to know who our audience should be, we have to know who we are first.
