This is me
This is moo
Why am I sending so many emails, and putting myself out there way moore than I ever have?
Firstly, the ‘This is me’ domain was taken.
Second, friends have called me ‘moo’ for a long time, and I’m kinda taking the piss in calling it this is moo, making a joke of how much effort, and time, some people put into coming up with the right name, and delay putting themselves out there, or starting a business, until everything is perfect (me included), and the website doesn’t make that much difference anyway, and
Thirdly, I want to motivate others to do more with their life, and create a life they want to live, as themselves. The best way I can do that is by being myself, and putting me out there, I don’t know how to be anyone else.
I’m hoping that by putting myself out there, in lots of different ways, and showing others how I do it, it might encourage them to get out there, and change the course of their own life, or create a life they actually want to live.
If you’ve watched the movie, the greatest showman, with Hugh Hackman, one of the songs is ‘This is me’ by keala settle.
Those who know me well, know that I don’t really listen to the words in most songs, or worry about the meaning, I kinda hear the words I want to hear. So this song may have a very different meaning for you, and for the singer, but for me, it’s about putting myself out there, presenting me to the world, I’m not scared to be seen, and I definitely make no apologies, this is me.
‘I am brave, I am bruised
I am who I’m meant to be, this is me
Look out ’cause here I come
And I’m marching on to the beat I drum
I’m not scared to be seen
I make no apologies, this is me’
So thisismoo.com is about helping others step up, and do what they need to do, make the most of the life they have. All though the website is a long way from finished, I might finish it sometime, it’s not that important right now.
For years I have followed others online (not creepy at all), had mentors, coaches and looked to outside sources for guidance. And while I still do, and will continue to, I realize that if I want to motivate others, I need to become the leader that I need to be, and back myself, rather than seeking validation from others.
I have taken many learnings, and lessons, from each of my coaches and mentors, but as much as I have waited for that one piece of magic, or piece of advice that would flick the switch, and get me to take action, it never came. All the time it was always up to me, just as it is for you.
If you need to flick a switch in your life, or if any of what I have to say resonates with you, reach out, and let’s start a conversation.
Life is definitely what we make of it.
This is moo.
This is me.
