Are You Comfortable in Your Own Skin?

Are you comfortable with who you are after asking yourself, who am I?

Network Marketing brings about a lot of soul-searching especially for professionals.

Taking on a different personality to cater to the expectations of other people is a clear sign that someone is not comfortable in his or her own skin…. To become more comfortable with yourself requires self-reflection to consider what causes your discomfort, why you feel the need to act differently with different people, and whether you have an overwhelming need to be liked….

The gentleman sitting next to me was in his late eighties…. When he was in his forties, he considered leaving the corporate world and becoming a teacher, but ultimately decided against it. “The reason I didn’t do it was because I was worried about what ‘they’ would think, ” he told me, “You know what? I’m eighty-nine years old now, and I spend a lot of time thinking about things. Who were ‘those people’ I was so worried about, and why did I care so much about what they thought?” Author: Harry M. Kraemer, Jr., From Values to Action

Who are those people who impact what you think and do in your life and why do you care? Put yourself in the old folks home and then ask what difference they make in your life.
