As I mentioned in the last post, I have seen some unsavory things in my business circles that are just appalling. Lies spinning this way and that, sucking unsuspecting people into the tornado and just creating a swath of ugliness wherever it goes.
I’ve heard of people outright stealing ideas from others (this is nothing new, I’m sure) and it includes some big names in my field. (Not woo but business coaching)
(Shakes my head) Two years ago, when I was newly on my own with PI and feeling very lost, I had delusions that I was a ‘thought leader’ like a couple people I studied under.
I am many things but new paradigms and ways of thinking do not fall under my amazing skill set.
So, I flat out stole some words used by one of my teachers and made them mine in an online training. And I got busted so hard by her, it almost knocked me out of the park for good. Her way of doing it was atrocious but it was what this wee Snarkela needed to get the message.
The issue was, as I see it in hindsight, that I wasn’t in my area of genius.
As noted above, I am not a thought leader.
But I am a clear channel for Guide teams. I am someone who can see next steps for others and support their empowerment into those steps. This is who I am and what I do.
And when you know that, you don’t have to wander around stealing other people’s ideas and identities.
My Guides keep screaming at me (because I’m listening but every now and again want to run off the reservation) to shut up.
To just let things take their course.
Those who need the lesson will find it. My lesson: SHUT UP. hehe
