How we get locked into online personas that keep us from evolving and speaking our truth.
In this episode, I talk about the rise of personal brands and the expectation that we present one continuous persona online — and how that limits the expression of our fullness. How a fear of being inconsistent with how you have presented yourself in the past can stifle your ability to evolve into the future. How a fear of not being palatable to everyone can keep you from speaking your personal truth.
Ideas we’ll explore in this episode:
- How the internet and social media created an environment of “context collapse” where we are no longer allowed to present different aspects of our identities in different settings
- Why we hide certain aspects of ourselves, our passions, and our personas and how we can reconnect with them & begin to show ourselves in fullness
- How opening to small linguistic shifts in how you describe yourself or your offerings can have a domino effect and spark new evolution
