Today’s blog is a reprint of a past essay entitled “live into your brand”. That title is based on one of my favorite quotes from Saint Augustine : “See who you ARE, become what you see.”
Today, there is a slight variation in the title : Live FROM your brand. Please understand that your highest vision of who you are has life, energy, and creative power. When the outside world is out of alignment, we doubt who we ARE. That gives the power to the world, rather than to God and the depths of our soul.
I experienced a business funk~a~doodle this week and had to remember who I am. Diamond Mind Thomas. Please read the manifesto below if you are interested in what I believe.
Stay tuned and remember we are in this journey together. I am honored to help you mine your infinite inner acres of diamonds and to express them more powerfully in the world.

There is a lot of buzz in the corporate world about our personal brand identity. The company has a brand and we want to establish what we personally want to be known for within the broader brand.
Often there is buzz, sizzle, no meat.
Recently, the unique and brilliant Cara Suglich took me through a process of creating a brand identity for Diamond Mind. Before Cara, I thought the brand was for the customer to buy into. True, and that comes later.
It starts with you, imagining your truest true, expressing the values and qualities you want to embody through your business. Cara did some powerful asking, deep listening and world class writing.
I have noticed my desire rise, inviting me to step into, come from, live into the highest aspirations of Diamond Mind.
My mission is simple, never simplistic, and certainly not easy. I believe in my clients. I hold their highest and truest ideals as they struggle with the day-to-day. I try to meet them where they are and bring them where they aspire to be.
Connect to your inner diamonds and express (shine) them in the world in a way that impacts, influences, persuades, encourages others to collaborate with YOU to create a better world.
We do this through conversation, with ourselves and with all we encounter.
The manifest below, written by Cara is a reminder of the truth I long to hold in each conversation. Even though I fall short daily, each day provides me ample opportunity to practice living into my Diamond vision.
Take a moment to envision your best self. What step can you take today, to live better aligned to your truest you?
I am here for you whenever conversation is helpful.
As always, we’d love to hear from you.
