1. What are you?
A woman, personality, presenter and manager. Inspiration, stubbornness, beauty and mistakes. On the path to the best me.
2. A book that you would recommend others to read – why?
From those recently read:
Tomás Navarro: KINTSUGI Embrace Your Imperfections and Find Happiness - the Japanese Way.
An in-depth book with conclusions reached from more than 20 years of practice and research about how to develop the courage within oneself, to be true and authentic, how to overcome various difficulties and failures in life, and not to be closed to people and life, but the complete opposite. To become more complete, more courageous, and truer and in the end, a happier and more fulfilled person.
Margie Warrell. Stop Playing Safe.
A great book which explains the importance of courage in our lives.
3. TEDx talk, which one do you recommend watching – why?
Brene Brown. The Power of Vulnerability. The power of humanity or vulnerability. About our humanity, authenticity, and the strength of personality. About the power to be real.
Elizabeth Gilbert. Success, Failure and the Drive to Keep Creating. About how to overcome failure, but also great success and good fortune.
4. What inspires you and gives you energy?
Two sons and the world around us – journeys near and far – a different culture, people, the experience and conclusion that the world is so broad and possible.
The moment that I see that I have helped to create something new, inspiring, but the main thing, meaningful and lasting in other people.
5. Why authenticity?
Not only what we do, but what we create around us, in others and for our selves, is very important. Authenticity is not a quality which a person either has or has not. It also isn’t the authorization to be as you are without thinking about those around you and your effect on others. Authenticity is a practice and a conscious choice, assuming responsibility for the exercise and development of one’s abilities. The power of our authenticity is in our personality – our stumbles, values, abilities, talents, and what we create for ourselves and those around us. This is not always easy and requires courage. How to speak with oneself and understand one's values, that which is truly important and real. How to understand one strengths and needs for development. How to develop the courage not to be perfect and why mistakes are required on the path to successful professional and personal development – that is the path, and that is also my path, which I support others to follow as well.
