You know those moments when you hear or see something you know is gooood? I had one of those this week with a dear friend, Rev. Dr. Terrlyn Curry Avery, a woman to be highly admired, and followed. You can follow her on Facebook here and check out her latest program here.   

 She had created an acronym that caused me to think about some past clients who were caught in a cycle of not wanting to be “cocky” and getting ahead of themselves, so they were playing it small, too small. It was a false sense of humility that denied how amazing and creative their businesses were. How can you sell your business services or a product if you downplay its importance or impact? You need to believe in it completely or uplevel it so that you can…

 Rev. Dr. TLC created Humble:

  • H – Honest
  • U – Unique
  • M – Memorable
  • B –  Bold
  • L –  Loving
  • E –  Excited.

 That says it all… If you, your services, or your product are terrific – Be Honest – OWN IT!!!

 If you are to succeed – you better have something unique to offer – to differentiate yourself- Amazing service? Amazing skill? A unique approach to a common problem/situation? Be Unique!

 You better stand out in the crowd – there are lots of people out there doing what you are doing- in what way can you stand out? Quick wit? Generosity? Supportive? As a resource? Find what suits you and perfect it! – Be Memorable 

 I have never been accused of being subtle – or hesitant to make a major change in my life or business. Being bold – having the audacity to exist– to risk- to thrive & to reach for your dreams is imperative if you are going to love your life – become your best self, and truly live – Be Bold

 It is all for naught if you can’t be loving. Loving life, loving the people close to you, as well as your clients & your vendors. Being kind is being loving and its natural and feels good– Be Loving

 One of the best parts of life is our passion, our joy, and our ability to be excited about those things that make us feel most alive. If your career, your job, or your life is bringing you down, why? Is it something about them or is it your attitude in general?  Something needs to change and ASAP. Get help if needed, or simply assess where you are and where it is you want to go. What do you need to do to get here?  Get excited about the movement forward. Movement means you’re not stuck – and that’s great news. Get Excited!!! 

 Get ready to flaunt your wares, come alive, and go for it – HUMBLY…

 As an example, in true humility, I know I can help you get there.

Call if you’re ready to fly and want support or accountability along the way!!!
