Are you yourself enough to become really successful?

Have you ever noticed that many successful and happy people really are themselves? In fact, in my opinion, to become really successful, you can no longer pretend to be anything other than you are in this time.

Look around you

Who do you know who is really successful? Who do you look up to? When I look at my list of people from whom I think: “I could learn something from that”, then they are all people who are themselves and can really relax in the meantime. That doesn’t mean they don’t care what others think of them anymore. Most people are still touched when someone openly admits that they don’t like them. But there is one big difference with people who would like to become successful, but – for the time being – will not be.

“I don’t change for anyone”

People who dare to be themselves shamelessly don’t change for anyone anymore. No matter what anyone else says or thinks. Whatever they get thrown at their feet. Even if they feel a bit shaken up. They once resolved to “I won’t change for anyone anymore” and what a strong resolution that is!

I like you just the way you are

You know that part in Bridget Jones’ Diary where all the women swoon over? Mark Darcy tells Bridget Jones that he likes her just the way she is. Once someone says that to you, or makes you feel it, it can completely transform you. Eventually you will also collect more of these types of ‘fans’ around you. Also in your work or company.

Show yourself

Those who really dare to be themselves are no longer afraid to show themselves. Then you dare to step out of the shadows and stand completely in the light. You may find it a bit exciting of course. Even our big idols often pinch him a little before they step on stage, but they do it. And when do we like them the most? When they relax, kick off their high heels and show themselves wonderfully, just as they are.

Your vibe attracts your tribe

The great thing about being and showing yourself is that it gives others the opportunity to do the same. Moreover, it attracts people who really suit you. Also business. When I Skype with a potential customer, I’m not going to pretend to be who I am. I say whatever comes to mind, don’t mince words, don’t give a fake sales pitch. As a result, I only have nice customers who suit me and my working method.

So what is really successful?

If you think I’m only talking about money and big business when I talk about success, you’re wrong. True success is much more than that. Of course money also plays a role, but I think it is much more important that you can really enjoy yourself. From the big and the small. One needs millions for this, the other manages with a nice modal income.

If you enjoy what you do and enjoy it to the fullest, in my eyes you have made it complete. People who are filthy rich and miserable, fail every day in my eyes. To be successful is to follow your mission, follow your heart and thereby achieve your intended goals. Without luck, success means nothing and is, literally, worthless!
