Whether you are socially, politically, or environmentally inclined, you are passionate in bringing about the changes that you wish to see. You are drawn to purposeful work, and leading change and transformation are where you excel.
As a leader, you advocate on behalf of those you lead, enabling professional growth and advancement. Your passion for purposeful work allows you to coach and educate others to rally them behind your cause. You are drawn to teamwork and are an excellent mediator. You have the gifts of both empathy and a research-oriented mind, making you a strong leader with excellent encouragement and persuasion skills.
You are friendly, confident, and passionate about what you believe in. Those around you know that you will not remain silent if something is not right, and your friends know they can count on you to have their backs.
As an advocate, you feel that your purpose in the world is to make it a better place. You know that things can be better; you are fiercely dedicated to your morals and feel a deep conviction to stand up for what you believe in, even when that means taking the courageous risk of standing up to an authority figure. For you, standing up for what is right is worth any potentially negative consequence, and you know that change does not come without risk. Without passionate people like you, the status quo would be limited to questioning and society would struggle to progress.
You fear being insignificant, your efforts going to waste, and letting others down. Fear is a healthy emotion that alerts us when it is time to get prepared. Fear alerts us to the fact that something needs assessing. When you live in the space of fear it can become paralyzing and confusing. The feelings of anxiety and overwhelm can present themselves as guarded and tense. The opportunity is to embrace the fear as your friend. Shift the shallow breath to a deep breath and ask yourself, “Is this fear justified?” If so, “What do you need to prepare for?” It is also an opportunity to shift your story. Are you telling the story of strong will vs stubbornness, dedication to good vs superiority, or focusing on what you can change vs worrying about what you cannot?
