Standing out and showing the world who you really are is easier said than done. We all have an in built desire both to be unique and special, and conversely to also fit in and belong. They are both innate, and opposing, human needs. Standing out requires us to risk rejection, to risk ridicule, looking stupid, being made fun of, and more… hence why so many people are terrified of public speaking.

So I am always looking for shining examples of people truly embodying ‘live, and lead, untamed and unafraid’ and when I came across this video on Facebook recently I was instantly awe-struck and inspired – both by the lyrics and the performance.

It’s from the movie ‘ The Greatest Showman’, and the song title ‘This Is Me‘ is the essence of living, and leading, untamed – being the real, untamed, raw, authentic you – no matter what anyone else thinks. Both the title and lyrics of this song honour that intention 100%!

I’ve since shared this with many of my clients and they have all be inspired by it and are stepping up to show the world who they are in bigger and bolder ways. So I’m sharing it with you too, in the hope that will inspire you to do the same.

I am including two versions/recordings of the song performance below. The first is what I call the ‘Raw Talent’ version. It’s from a showcase that the cast and production team put on to get the movie greenlit. I love this version as it’s totally raw, filled with passion and emotion. The second version is also inspiring and is from the movie production and includes the lyrics.

I am brave, I am bruised
I am who I’m meant to be, this is me
Look out ’cause here I come
And I’m marching on to the beat I drum
I’m not scared to be seen
I make no apologies, this is me

Give them both a watch and let me know which version you prefer and why in the comments below. I’d also love to hear how the performance and lyrics impacted you and what you are taking away from it.
