My men and I going to a white party on New Year’s Eve in Mexico
Happy, happy new year, ladies! I’m back from nine days away and I must admit I’ve already jumped knee deep into many exciting projects (or continued with them, anyway)…you?
As we head into January and as I head into a pretty extensive re-brand photo shoot this coming weekend (!) all I can think of is the “IT factor”…you know, that IT factor that people talk about certain brands or people having? How do you get it?
Well, to me, the IT factor is easier to “get” than we think as long as you’re doing two things. You’re not born with it, you make it:
1. Innovate (the I in IT). We must constantly be innovating (changing, creating, renewing ourselves and our ideas/projects) in order to stay fresh and in order to communicate the most charismatic version of ourselves. Self innovation ~ I even LOVE the way that sounds. It stretches our happiness 1000% and in doing so we become way-hay more interesting…everyone wants to be closer to the girl having the most genuine fun at the party.
2. Truth (the T in IT). We must consistently live in and speak from our truth. We’re in flow in this spot…the sweet spot.
So there. You can have the IT factor in your business, your life and in all of your most thrilling projects. And you can have IT more and more everyday as long as you’re doing these couple things; really making them a habit, no matter how easy it might be to do the opposite.
Assess now…do you have your I and T in order? And, if not, is there a trip, a blog post, a book, an event that you could plan NOW (no more waiting) to jack both the I and T closer to a 10?
