Kermit The Frog Teaches Business Owners to ‘Be Yourself’

How hard is it to be yourself in business?

When so many people are always telling you just how you should be it can be difficult to take the advice of Kermit the Frog.

“Always be yourself, never take yourself too seriously.  And be aware of advice from experts, pigs, and members of parliament.”

Interesting isn’t it?  And possibly something those of us running our own small businesses struggle with.

How to be ourselves?

Be Yourself!
Be Yourself!

Are you always looking for advice or feeling under pressure to do things the way everyone else does it?

Are you doing things because other people do it or because you know it will work for you?

What happens to your productivity and efficiency when you feel  that you are being bombarded by the opinions and suggestions of well meaning friends, family and business associates?

So as Kermit The Frog’s suggests how can you be yourself more of the time and make decisions that work for you?

Here are some self coaching questions to help you understand yourself better:

What would you like to have happen? (that situation / decision / activity)

Is there anything else about    (that situation / decision / activity)?

What kind of …………….. is that …………………….?

Where is ……………………?

Then what happens ……………………..?

What needs to happen for ……………………….. to happen?

or that to happen you need to be like what?

What kind of you is that you?

Is there anything else about that ‘you’?

For you to be like that and for that to happen is there any other kind of resource or support you need?

Notice what happens to efficiency and effectiveness when you understand yourself and are happy with your own unique way of doing things.
