Bringing All The Different Sides of You Together As One
When you look into the mirror, who do you see?
Do you see the person that you are to the outside world or do you see your inner self? Many times we go through life separating who we are in our professional and personal life. We can find ourselves being one type of person at work, a different person with our family, with our friends or even maybe when we are by ourselves.
We can feel that we aren’t able to blend these different sides of us together and truly be who we are. Our perception may be that in one situation or another, the outside world may not accept who we are because they only know us that way or we've decided other people expect us to be a certain way.
I did that for a long time. I wouldn’t let my professional world know about my yoga side of my life, for fear of being judged or thinking it may affect me professionally. I also didn’t share with my yoga classes that I was a CPA, Technologist and traveling Keynote Speaker.
But, then one day it happened. A client of mine came into my yoga class, not knowing I was the instructor. They started referencing our business relationship, and then I heard mumbling amongst the students, and one piped up and said, “Did I hear that right? You are a CPA?”
This ended up bringing us all closer. They started sharing the work that they did in their outside life and the other CPAs they were related to. I found that it made them more interested in my class knowing my background as well. I then started to bring up yoga at work and found that people loved hearing about my outside interests and they started sharing theirs as well. This created a new sense of who we were as people and created a closer bond as co-workers.
How do we get back to our authentic self, no matter what situation we're in, whether we're at work, whether we're at home or whether with our friends or by ourselves? We spend a lot of time making sure we exercise and eat right, but we don't necessarily spend the same amount of time on our brain health and how to bring all of the things that make us unique together so we can be one person, no matter what situation we find ourselves in.
How do we take that person that we see in the mirror, that person that we enjoy being, and integrate it all together?
We can do that by going on a learning journey and taking time in each day to spend time on ourselves. Actually taking 5, 10, or even 30 minutes, to work on our thoughts, to work on our feelings, and maybe why we do the things that we do. When we break these thoughts down in our minds, we work toward being better for ourselves and the people around us.
That is what the B3 Method Institute is all about. We want you to go on a journey so we can help you dedicate that 5, 10, or 30 minutes a week to setting intentional goals to better understand the interactions that you have with people in your life and get back to your authentic self. We want to go on this journey with you to help bring all of these sides of you together in order to feel more fulfilled.
Whether you're at work, at home or with your family, you shouldn’t feel like you have to be a different person to different people. Rather than putting your own expectations or perceptions on other people or the outside world, we will strive to help you gain a better understanding of why you feel that you need to be a different person in each facet of your life and how you can change that paradigm. The goal is to create more positivity in your life so that you can create what we call Bliss, the maintenance of happiness. Sometimes we find it and then we can lose it again - it's a practice to maintain it and learn how to shift when we need to.
It's just as much of an exercise to work on ourselves, as it is to get better at exercising, painting, learning a foreign language, or whatever may interest you. It takes consistency and we have to intentionally do it each day. We are here to help you on that journey and that is what the B3 Method institute is all about.
