Recently, I got an email from one of my private clients that made my heart sing. This was not a normal “testimony” from a satisfied customer. This was much more raw and heartfelt and touching. I don’t think it’s right to share his identity–the sentiment is so personal that I think it is best left anonymous…but I do think it is worth sharing.
You see, he is responding to the benefit he is getting from our work together, but more than that, he is responding to my foundational belief that we all have amazing, magical talents to share, that those gifts are not added to you but brought out of you (that they are inherent in you ALREADY, just waiting to be discovered, activated, nurtured and spotlighted).
If you are feeling battered and bruised, beaten down by crappy work, vicious colleagues, mind-numbing circumstances, or an endless stream of disappointments, then you need to be reminded of how magnificent your brand is. You do have gifts to give; you just need to discover what they are. My personal brand allows me to see the gold in others and find ways to best highlight that to others. What’s yours?
Here’s the email my client sent:
P.S. Happy Valentine’s Day!
