Meet Risa, a clinical psychologist, international speaker, and founder of 93% Consulting Advisory Council for Mindfulness Without Borders. She is also the creator of Disruptive Self Ownership. Today, we will delve into the concept of Disruptive Self Ownership in 2023, and how it can be used to benefit us. Risa believes in being true to oneself, as famously quoted by her compatriot Oscar Wilde, who said, “Be yourself because everyone else is taken.” In today’s world, people often get caught up in trying to be someone they are not. In this discussion, Risa will explain the concept of self-ownership, which is the foundation of her work.
The Importance of Self-Ownership
Risa defines self-ownership as accepting one’s good, terrible, and cringe-worthy qualities. By doing so, people may bring their complete self to their work and use their talents and abilities, even those they believed were lost. To build authenticity and grounded bravery, one must comprehend and learn from prior experiences.
Identifying Your Expertise
Despite distractions and conflicting interests, discovering one’s “superpower” is the first step to authenticity. Although self-doubt may affect relationships, clarity is essential. Embracing and understanding one’s knowledge gives honesty, integrity, and trust, letting people contribute their whole self to work and relationships.
The Power of Credibility and Trust
People can tell if something isn’t real. Even if we don’t know what’s wrong, our “BS meter” may detect minor signs. Being yourself is essential, yet not being yourself conveys inadequacy and pain. You must invest in your growth and become an expert to be confident. “Up your act” authenticity, credibility, and trust start here.
The Importance of Effective Communication
Communication demands self-confidence and curiosity. Beginning each day with an open mind and a willingness to learn creates intellectual curiosity, which helps us communicate and connect with others. Integrated communication, when words and nonverbal clues are coordinated, conveys sincerity, credibility, and trust and leaves a lasting impression.
Addressing Impostor Syndrome
Focusing on purpose, knowledge, and achievement can help overcome impostor syndrome. Knowing our purpose and skill helps us define success on our own terms and avoid distractions. Our brains are designed for change, and we may use neuroplasticity to make positive changes at any age.
Integrating All Aspects of Your Life
Understanding and integrating work, personal, and self-relationships is crucial to success and meaningful existence. It requires recognizing your joys, difficulties, and stimulants. This requires planning and implementing your life’s essentials.
Taking Action towards Personal and Business Growth
I assist individuals, businesses, and institutions make the adjustments needed to flourish as a consultant and workshop leader. It’s not enough to have ideas—you must act on them. You may succeed and be happy by recognizing and combining your life’s vital parts.
