Hi Team...

Happy Friday...

I know you got it done this week! Me too.

Before I jump on a plane to Florida, I wanted to send a quick message.

Last night, after I spoke at the Conference in Virginia, the Organizer, Ruth, gave me some great wisdom that I wanted to share with you...

She told me, " I tell all my kids, take the action, free yourself from the result"...

I asked her to unpack this a bit...

She said, "Coach, if you are holding on so hard to the result, it will change your actions. You will not do things authentically and do them being your true self. You will allow your desire for an outcome to drive everything, which can inhibit you from being you."....

Powerful.

How many times do we change ourselves even slightly to match the room? 

To connect with other people?

To showcase our "BEST" self in a situation.. when really we are showing up with our false self?

The other day I was coaching a client who was in the mix for a new job...

She has to do a group interview for final approval....

When she asked me for my advice, I gave her the words of KOBE BRYANT-

"BE YOURSELF"...

And, if you do get the job, you got it being you.

And, if you don't get the job, you got a blessing.

It was not the place for you.

Simple stuff.

Don't let your desired outcome change who you are...

Never adapt the "who" of your persona for a result...

In the end, it is just too hard to fake it in life.

Living like a fake is exhausting... 

Cheers to YOU.

Let's GO!

Chase Greatness..

Your Coach, 

COACH DANA CAVALEA
