How Multiple Roles Enhance Your Life Story

Image

This Week’s Episode:

I’m in the audience at a business conference when the speaker suddenly asks, “Who here is an artist? Raise your hand.” While a lot of hands go up, mine isn’t one of them.

My friend in the next seat elbows me in the side and says, “Raise your hand.”

I whisper to him, “I’m not an artist, I’m an athlete.” I’d never think to plaster that label on myself. Being an artist is reserved for painters and pop stars, not me.

He whispers back, “Hello! You’re a Black Belt, a Martial Artist. You ARE an artist.”

In that exact moment, a lightbulb goes off. He’s right. Martial Arts *is* an art form. Hello - it’s literally in the name! I also realize then and there that the labels I put on myself are subjective and not necessarily a complete picture of who I am to others and to the world.

My guest today is a military officer, an orthodontist and pageant queen who knows all about labels and turning them into your competitive advantage. In today’s show, Dr. Corinne Devin talks about the commonalities you can discover between very different careers, building confidence on the inside and the outside, and overcoming the stories others try to tell you about yourself.

How can you translate common skills between completely different jobs? How do you deal with limitations that others want to place on you? What do people get wrong about confidence? Discover the answers to those questions and more in this episode!

You’ll also hear about the career counselor giving questionable advice, how to harness the energy to prove wrong those who say you can’t be, do, or have what you want, and what to do when you’re multi-passionate and feel drawn to play very different roles in your life and career.

What you will learn in this episode:

  • Why admitting your struggles is actually a sign of confidence
  • What you can do to gain instant confidence if you lack it
  • How to reverse the limiting stories you tell about yourself

"Storytelling is an art form - and Kymberlee Weil is the master! I’ve been fortunate enough to work with some of the most talented creatives in the world, and Kymberlee is close to the top of that list. She has an uncanny ability to uncover nuance and layers in a story - details often overlooked by the author - and has a deep understanding and connection with the value of well-executed presentation. Working with Kymberlee is more than a journey, it’s a transformative experience."

"Kymberlee helped me tremendously in the weeks leading up to my TED talk and afterwards. I have given hundreds of talks to audiences big and small. But the TED stage is a different beast -- every word matters.Kymberlee kept me on point, focused, and she took the time to figure out what my objectives really were and how to get me there. She is a true master of her trade and I am extremely grateful to have had the opportunity to work with and learn from her."

"I thought I had public speaking down pat. I've addressed audiences all over the world ranging from 62 to 1000 people. But going into that red circle at TEDx, and connecting with a vastly diverse audience is like moving to another planet. Kymberlee made that move effortless and exciting. As a former Green Beret, I have followed a lot of quality leaders and coaches, and I would follow Kymberlee anywhere… Especially into the red circle."
