Leadership Freak really struck a chord in me with his latest post, The Most Powerful Thing About You.
How often do I tell stories about myself to make me feel better about me?
Do I really feel better through the telling?
Not really. I tend to feel more like a phoney when I try to plug my skills or strengths through anecdotes. It turns every interaction into a job interview and interviews tend to make me feel all faint and sweaty…
The advice: whatever you tell, tell it to serve others. Your story of overcoming fear and chasing your wild horses can set you free if service inspires the telling.
