Day 13 – Honesty is the best policy
Lord help me – it’s only day 13!
*Sigh* I guess I should be happy since we’re nearing the halfway point.
Ya! Halfway woohoo!
Alrighty, so today’s challenge is all about websites, so I’m thinking, ‘Yes! Free pass – I already have a website.’
Then, I read the question: What 3 things would I most like my website to have? ‘Boo! Go directly to jail! Do not pass go! Do not collect $200!’
Aw snap! Does anyone happen to have a ‘Get out of jail free’ card? LOL
That question encouraged me to go back to my website with fresh eyes. So I go to the homepage, read the header and it says,
What if your fear listened to you for a change?
Get in charge of your fear – and of your future. Change fear, explore its hold on you, question,
overcome and reposition it, so you can live the life you want to live…
And I’m like…’WOW Sherice, what happened?! Sure it sounds good and all but where exactly is this exploration and introspection?
Then there’s the midsection where I feature a few people that were instrumental in my life. Initially the plan was to add more people and resources over time, but I think somewhere along the way I got stuck…
I was torn between what I thought people expected and what I wanted.
Geesh, can someone had me a stick of dynamite so I can blow up this site?
Ok…what I would like to have?
1. My website needs to be a better reflection of me.
2. It needs to be clear who the website is for? I think it should be overachieving perfectionists regularly plagued with self-limiting thoughts – The recovering (people like me), uncovering and newly discovering). How’s that for narrowing a niche? LOL
3. It needs to be clear what I’m offering if I’m offering something. I think it’s pretty clear to me that I’m an executioner not a coach (even if people expect me to be). I’ve always been resistant to that terminology and questioned whether it was Resistance with a capital ‘R’ – it’s not. Time to take all that consulting terminology off the site.
I still feel really passionate about helping people and I think that’s something that will never change. I don’t think I could even if I wanted to. But it’s got to be different because I am different.
You know, now it’s beginning to make a lot more sense. The reason I haven’t been blogging on the site is because it’s no longer a reflection of me. I think if anything it was more a reflection of who I thought I should be.
So…who am I?
Simply…I’m someone who wants to be honest about the struggle. Honest about the fact that although I’m loving my freedom and pursuing my dreams, I still have the occasional doubt and fears.
Ok let’s be honest Resistance has pretty much beaten a path to my proverbial door.
Buuuuuut regardless of how much it yells, beats its chest and pounds its fist –
I shall not lose…
it shall not win,
because...it’s not the only one who knows how to resist ;).
