What’s your trademark? Is it the way you smile? Is it the cup on Dunkin in your hand? The way you dress? Or maybe it is the way you make people laugh. Each of us has unique gifts, a unique look, unique ideas. Either way your trademark is uniquely yours, so own it.
I get it, trust me I do, its tough to own your fabulousness while fighting through the minutia (aka brave sierra) of the 9-5:00. One of my favorite movies is Office Space. As our protagonist became miserable in his job, he lost himself for a minute. It wasn’t until he decided to make a change that he was invigorated again. In the end, he defrauded the company and ended up in a construction job. Obviously, I’m not advocating defrauding you company, but I am advocating finding and following your passion.
Nobody in Hollywood today or yesteryear, could compete with the awesome persona that was Mae West. Without a doubt , her trademark blonde hair and acerbic wit were and still are absolutely legendary. I love the quote from her below. It’s not what you do or what you say, but how you say it. Say things in your voice. Do things in your own way. Be true to your identity.
As I wrote at the beginning, each of us has things that are uniquely ours. This along with the way we make people feel is our trademark. As I look at my own kids, each has a trademark of their own. Jake’s trademark is his dimples and passion for music. Goalielocks’ trademark without question is his flowing blonde hair and brilliant, inquisitive mind. The Mayor’s is well he’s the Mayor – that’s his trademark. Everywhere we go, people know the Mayor. Certainly. his cute dimples and personality don’t hurt. No matter the pressure, no matter what happens, don’t let life’s up and downs impact you amazingness.
