Keeping in the spirit of our April newsletter about Authenticity, we came across this Ted talk by Caroline McHugh about The art of being Yourself. Unbeknown to Caroline she is our new best friend and her Ted Talk is now placed in our Olyinkamag™ inspirational hall of fame.
Caroline McHugh is founder and CEO of the company IDOLOGY, a movement dedicated to helping individuals and organisations to become fully, original versions of themselves. She has developed the "I Complex" model which helps individuals and organisations determine what the "I" really means, when you say "I".
In the Talk, Caroline beautifully and eloquently describes her Model and at one point even presents a video clip of Jill Scott and Erykah Badu, that perfectly demonstrates what it means to "Know thyself" - the Olyinka mantra! We wont say too much, but our new favourite word is now "Queendom" Yasss...That's right Queen!
We believe that Caroline's Ted Talk is important because we understand that being yourself is not always easy, especially when society moulds you into someone you are not or when parents and peers force their ideals and aspirations on you therefore becoming what they want you to be, rather than who you really are.
There are numerous reasons as to why people are not living their authentic life and we discuss this and the steps you can take to operate in your truth in our April newsletter
We believe that "being someone other than yourself is not being your best self" and we want you to become your best self so be encouraged by Caroline's Talk, take notes and also sign up to our monthly newsletter for more inspiration. Enjoy!
