Last week, we dived into a poll about self-motivation versus outside cheers, and let me tell you, the results were a real eye-opener! I was expecting everyone to shout, “Intrinsic motivation rules!” but guess what? It’s a mixed bag of 50% cheers, 25% tangible results lovers, and 25% enjoying a bit of both. No one went all-in for just the inner fire.

Now, let me share a little secret. I used to be a crowd-pleaser too, in both life and business. We all wear those masks, right? But here’s the kicker – how well do we really know ourselves? Could understanding the real ‘you’ make you a Rockstar manager or a negotiation maestro?

The intriguing results of the poll stirred up thoughts about self-confidence and the delicate balance between seeking external approval and nurturing our own growth. It’s a common trap, isn’t it? We find ourselves performing for the applause, often sidelining our personal evolution in the process.

But here’s the million-dollar question: Why do we sometimes trade our authenticity for the fleeting recognition of others? It’s like we’re putting on a show instead of embracing who we really are. Maybe it’s time for a paradigm shift, a return to our roots, and a rediscovery of that inner mojo that’s the true engine behind our passion.

Imagine fueling not just professional victories but also personal triumphs with an authenticity that resonates from within. It’s about honoring your journey, acknowledging your uniqueness, and finding fulfillment not just in external accolades but in the sheer joy of being true to yourself.

Why not rediscover intrinsic motivation, fostering genuine passion for personal and professional development? When you put your head on the pillow at night are you happy with this life? Are you happy and pleased knowing that you stepped on your heart and said no to yourself only to say yes to the others? For how long this will feed your ego? Is this a healthy mindset on long term?

As we gear up for the holiday season, here’s a heart-to-heart. Are you happy sacrificing your true self for that external pat on the back? Can that really keep you smiling in the long run? How about shaking up those 2024 resolutions to put authenticity in the spotlight?

Let’s make 2024 the year of real you, not just the social media avatar.

A growth mindset starts with you, the real you, not the one that you expose online.

Wishing you a jolly Christmas and a New Year filled with genuine vibes, self-discovery, and countless victories. Here’s to making it your most authentic and kick-butt year ever!
