It's okay to be you - that's not true!

Stay as you are, a well-intentioned birthday wish - for me the worst wish ever!

A few days ago I came across the sentence: Develop so quickly that your friends who meet you again in a month's time will have to get to know you all over again.
WOW - this has picked me up AND GOT ME IN.

There are so many facets to it. 

On the one hand, the realisation that growth, development and change are important components for happiness - I'm definitely there and love high speed in all these areas.

On the other hand, the question: What does your environment want? Family, friends, employees...?

Do the people around you want to get to know you all the time, or would you rather live with the statement? 

Stay as you are...., because I know what I have and don't have to be prepared for any surprises.

Who then is the lid for development?

The question is, do others still recognise you when you develop further?
Which of your values can withstand intense periods of development - what are the core values, what is non-negotiable and always belongs to you and your personality, your leadership style, without any doubt?

...and what is thrown overboard?

Do the others still recognise the person they liked before, trusted and relied on?

...and then we come to the beginning: It's okay to be you.

In my opinion, the standard - it's okay - is not enough here.

"It's okay" seems like a nice permission slip -. by whom? - – for what?

Have the courage to become who you are - 100%, with all the rough edges that belong to it and are sometimes NOT "okay" for others.

Have the courage to become who you are. Clarity is king! Leadership as a LIFESTYLE.

Always a little more, or even at top speed.
Staying true to yourself makes it easy at this point, because certain things are then simply non-negotiable - and that's a good thing. Because then it also becomes clear to those around you who you are.

It's not okay to be you: It's your job to be YOU, FULL Pound, with everything you've got.....and best of all with ease!

Remember: The answers are within you - TRUST YOU!
