Interview with Paula G...on being comfortable in one's own skin

Had a great time this past Wednesday being interviewed by life coach and BlogHer CE on personal finance, business and career, Paula Gregorowicz.

The link to her post publishing the interview is here.

I'm not sure I completely lived up to Paula's vision of being comfortable in one's own skin and how that leads to fulfillment and success. I think I made a different point...that one can be comfortable in one's own skin in parts. And that can be enough. I am highly comfortable about some things, and that serves me well...and it can serve you well too, even if you're a mass of discomfort about other things! Leverage your strengths, baby, that's what it's all about.

When I think of some of the great achievers, I'm not thinking of people who breeze through life without insecurity, or even people who seem that comfortable in their own skin. But they are driven, and who knows? Maybe our discomforts and insecurities are part of what drive us?

What does being comfortable in your own skin...or not being that comfortable...mean to you and achieving your goals?

Thanks for the opportunity to interview you & for the post. I do agree with you -- it is a journey, and being comfortable in your own skin in parts is enough. Once you are clear on who you are and what matters to you then there are definitely situations where if you're not comfortable and don't thrive in - totally a-ok because as you shared, it is about playing to your strengths. It's when you don't know what they are or are unwilling to claim them that you somehow feel "bad" about not being everything to everyone, everywhere.

I'm just excited to do great podcasts with women like you who are willing to be 100% who they are! Thanks again!
While people may have different views still good things should always be appreciated. Yours is a nice blog. Liked it!!!
