What are your Top 5?
How do you see them playing out in your life?
I LOVE meeting new people! Every day presents new opportunities for me to make strategic connections that elevate my business, family life and friendships. I get a massive rush when attending networking events. Not only do I feel positive about meeting new people, but I am also dipping into my mental Rolodex when someone mentions to me that they need help in a specific area. I find myself saying, “Hey! I just met someone who can help you with that.”
Using my talents to help others attain success is my number one goal. My Communication talent theme allows me to present my ideas, or the ideas of others in a format that is easily understood by all in attendance. Plus, I love having fun and enjoy any time I earn positioned under the spotlight!
To me, the future is always bright.
What's your favorite theme?
Most people expect me to say WOO when I’m asked this question, but my favorite theme is Futuristic.
I seriously get stoked when I think about the un-tapped possibilities that await me! I don’t find myself spending too much time reflecting on the past. I feel that you can learn from it, but too much time spent concentrating on history stunts the growth of our future.
What's the one theme that "gets in your way"?
Communication. I am often told that I have “a lot to say.” Duh! It’s how I express myself, but I have to be cautious not to speak over others or during moments where silence would prove more blissful. But when I do have something to say, my words are chosen carefully.
How has knowing your top 5 empowered you to live a more authentic life?
This response is going to force me to place my communication in check! For far too long I was told to avoid getting involved in concerns that didn’t directly affect me. But I felt an overwhelming desire to use my talents to help others express themselves. I’d run into people daily who’d explain to me that their ideas or visions were simply too difficult for them to express to the public. Hearing that, I’d ask them to explain it to me in their own words, and then allow me to refine their pitch in an effort to maximize its appeal and WOW factor!
This ability to help others communicate has given my life a massive boost of meaning, love and joyful fulfillment.
