This was so beautifully articulated. I agree, it's important to operate in business from a place of feeling competent and authoritative while working WITH ones unique skill set - as opposed to against it.
But I wonder about advancement and moving outside of our comfort zone toward creating or innovating. Perhaps we still operate from our skill set as a foundation and then stick our toe in the water into unchartered territories. Would love to hear your thoughts about this.
My hit is that getting to the sweet spot is an ongoing journey from the inside out, from that authoritative place from within. And sometimes that Impostor Syndrome emerges when we venture beyond our safe home base, with a lack of confidence thinking, "I'm not good enough," instead of allowing for untapped depth to come through.
Your post really had me thinking this new years eve. I'm still thinking about it.
WIshing you peace, health and a successful 2014. JudyMartin8
