(VIDEO) What Do You Want to Be Known for?

What do you want to be known for? And I’m not necessarily talking about being known as the best boiler, baker or candlestick maker. I’m more so referring to what you want be known as in regards to your personality traits. What do you want people to say about you? Do you want to be known as professional, trustworthy or an all round great person?

I’m curious, what reputation are you striving to create? Leave a comment below.

    Good words to think about, what do I want to be known for and live those words. Had to do some hard thinking. And my words are I am authentic. No fluff or spinning what I do, and how I am with friends and colleagues. And know that many times if I tell it as it is, some people get challenged. But this is me and the way I want to live my life. Be true to myself and others. I do also wear my heart on my sleeve. Thanks Andrew for getting me to dig deep within. Like the ukulele ? track.

    He made a real difference so that business owners could live a larger life and then gave back to their communities.

    I find it intriguing when people want to promote that they are, for example, trustworthy. I think why would you need to say that? Wouldn’t you just be trustworthy anyway. Then I start thinking, mmm the fact you have to mention that makes me think, that maybe you’re not alway trustworthy.

    Maybe a way around it is to talk about the qualities you most admire in others without necessarily saying they apply to you. People may then associate you with those qualities. Now I sound like I’m being manipulative. These are random thoughts before my morning coffee.

    I think your point is do it and be it and it will be so. (You can use that if you like).

    By the way, great video technically as well. Good framing, depth to the background, audio solid, colourful shirt, brilliant natural -dare I say – authentic delivery. 🙂

    Now where’s my coffee…

    This is something I thought very carefully about a fair while ago. My answer is this:

    I want to be known as someone who understands what it’s like to manage a small business with mental illness and who makes it her purpose to help and support others in the same position. I want to be known as someone who is real, who connects wholeheartedly with people and who is not afraid of being vulnerable to enable her to serve others.

    Enjoyed your chat Andrew. I think your comment around alignment is so key. Decide what it is you want to be known for and then make sure your actions describe it for you.

    I’m known for caring – caring enough to make a difference in the lives of others. I live it and I love it. Great question Andrew – makes us think!
