It has taken me a while to get here, but with a lot of hard work and more than a few bumps in the road, I can now say I am blessed to do what I love and to be in my element is a dream come true for me! A feeling of freedom comes along with being in your element. Your stress levels lower and you experience feelings of bliss, gratitude, pride but most importantly, fulfillment.
So just what does it mean to be in your element? When you are in your element you are in a natural, comfortable situation or environment. Being in your element means to be doing something you fully enjoy, with a high level of competence and comfort. It means to be doing something you are extremely familiar with. It usually means you are good at what you are doing, you may even be an expert. There is little, if no struggle. Everything flows with ease and things seem to simply fall into place. But most importantly, being in one's element means spending your time doing something you enjoy so much that you could do it all the time. It is being in a space where time stands still, and not wanting to leave that space. You may even be willing to do it for free, to teach it to others.
The definition of element refers to any of the four substances that compose the physical universe. They are air, water, fire and earth. Each of these elements are represented in the four colors used in True Colors® being, Green, Blue, Orange and Gold.
At the end of my workshops I always ask my clients, "What do you know now that you didn't know before learning your True Colors®?" The best compliment I ever received was when one of the participants answered "For the first time in my life I am OK with who I am!" WOW! Teaching True Colors® allows me to show others how they can be in their element. True Colors® is a simple, fun and very effective personality assessment that reveals to you what your natural gifts and talents are. Knowing your True Colors® will expose your values and you will understand your annoyances and frustrations. You will come away with a better understanding of who you are, which of course helps you to understand others and why they behave the way they do. Having this knowledge allows you to make wiser decisions when it comes to your education, career and relationships. Wiser decisions leads to being in your element!
Are you in your element? Do you know what your element is? What would it take to get you there?
