Wanna know the biggest problem I see that stops my ladies from living an authentic life? Are you ready for it?… It’s that we are too nice! What? Yup! Did you ever think being too nice was gonna be a problem? I certainly didn’t, but the more I understand what living an authentic life means, the more I understand what’s truly stopping us is caring too much about how others perceive us.
Not too long ago we lost two absolute legends. First, David Bowie, then Prince. It’s definitely been a sad year, not just for the music industry, but for everyone for so many reasons, but the #1 reason I want to focus on is how these two legends were able to cultivate a life of authenticity and do it with zero fucks given!
In this video I specifically talk about Prince because I read an article that gave me all the “ah-ha’s” in the world that I couldn’t wait 5 seconds before I shared it with my ladies on Snapchat (my favorite app EVER).
The response I got was incredible. There are so many ladies walking around with a very toxic disease. Want to know what that disease is? Well… I discuss it in the video but one thing I want you to remember is that being too nice is attached to expectations.
holy bombshell right? Being too nice is not authentic and is actually attached to expectations of how you’d like people to reciprocate.
That’s not really nice at all right? Well let’s get deeper in today’s video “How to be nice but not too nice,” and let me know what you took away by commenting below!
Happy TLC Thursday, and stay cool!
