When a song hits a nerve, it's about so much more than a nice tune. And when a song hits a nerve that spreads throughout the virtual world, and which gets over 32 Million views and 297,000 thumbs up, it is worth paying attention to something that is probably not being spoken about enough, until me.
Chances are good that everyone feels "like a freak" at some point, or throughout, their life. And those messages, from without and/or within, which hold us
back are not only punishing, but are also a good part of what makes people fear public speaking. We are SO afraid that what we have been taught to judge about ourselves will be observed by everyone else, and the punishment will be increased to the power of 10.
This song, this video, this movie speaks so intensely to me and to what I am doing with this business of promoting women's visibility.
That this video has garnered over 32 million views says something to me about the need we have to be unapologetic about being freaky. We have to be part of a group of others who "get it", and who hold us in love as we do them. And together we have to be bold enough to stand up and say, "Hey, even freaky, I am magnificent, and meant to be here, and worthy of all good things."
It's a powerful message, and it goes to the heart of what I teach for. I care that you become the kind of woman who can be visible in all of your brokenness and all of your magnificence, simultaneously. As you can see from the video, that kind of authenticity is power.
Entrepreneur, Actor, Speaker and Rebellious Game-Changer - that's me. I coach women, helping them recognize, understand and break out of the social "shoulds" to become empowered, powerful and masterful communicators, on stage and off.
