You consider making your first video for your website…

…and this voice pops into your head.

You think about following up with the woman you met at that event who expressed interest in working with you…

…and you hear it again.

You know you should raise your prices…

…but that same voice just keeps holding you back.

You know this voice all too well.

It’s the snarky voice in your head that likes to mouth off whenever you think about being bold, a little decadent, or more self-nurturing.

And it slings out the same six syllables that steal your mojo every time…

“Who do you think you are?”

These six snarky syllables steal your mojo every time: “Who do you think you are?”

Usually this voice doesn’t act alone. It’s a collective. It’s your worst high school nightmare mean girls mob hanging out in the smoking lounge sneering at you.

Every woman I know has her own version of this mob waiting in the wings.

Even Oprah admits that every time she wanted to achieve more, the first voice she heard was:

“Who do you think you are?”

In other words: Stay down, play small, shut up, and don’t embarrass yourself. Don’t even bother because you won’t make it, you don’t deserve it, everyone knows it, and they’ll all laugh at you when you fail.

So, next time that voice tries to rob you of your divine right to make a bold move, here’s what to do to take your mojo back…



Answer it.

Really.

Who DO you think you are?


————-

A little background:

Many years ago, I told my first coach about some fears coming up around a choice I was making.

I said, “…and all the voices in my head are saying, ‘Who do you think you are?’”

And he looked at me and said, “Well? Who do you think you are?”

I smiled and continued with my story.

He cut in.

“Stop! I really want to know, Christine. Who DO you think you are? Tell me right now.”

In a very tiny voice, I told him.

Then he made me say it again in a bigger, stronger voice.

And again after that.

And one more time.

He said, “There. Now you have an answer for your voices.”

And I am STILL living into the amazing results. (Thank you, Thom.)

So, dear reader, here’s your assignment:

In the thread below, answer this question:

Who do you think you are?

Answer it AUTHENTICALLY.

Don’t get all lofty or holy on me.

Don’t get all “I’m a divine being, living in divine perfection with power and grace.”

Okay, fine.

True as that may be, if these words don’t resonate with you, you’ll never feel any bolder. And the mean high school girls will put their cigarettes out on your shoe.

Get gritty. Get granular.

Share it with the world, with the mean girls, with your family, with the snarky and the un-snarky, the Upleveled and the Downleveled…

Who do you think you are?

(And after you share your answer, I DARE you to go take that one bold step you’ve been avoiding…)

What an amazing coach! And ya, you go first. Lol! I guess I would just like an example because it's a really broad question and also I am unsure of how to get gritty and granular when answering it. Sorry I am slow :P, but that's not my answer! Lol!
