This week, I wanted to just let you know that you are awesome…right where you are. You probably don’t own and recognize your accomplishments, do you? You’re probably like me and you’re constantly working on the next thing, stressed about where you are and where you want to be, or where you think you should be. So today, I thought I would remind you that you are pretty amazing and you should take a moment to acknowledge that. And when I say acknowledge your accomplishments, I’m not just talking about material or physical things; being brave enough to pursue your dreams or quit your job to figure out what you really want to do with your life is an accomplishment too!
I don’t know about you, but I often suffer from what I call the “should be” syndrome. The tape that plays in my head goes like this: At this age, I should be more successful. I work in the fitness industry, so I should beable to maintain a perfect body. I should be further along with my non-profit by now. I should be further along in my career.
I’m not saying we shouldn’t work hard and strive for greatness. I’m simply wondering if we stopped comparing our path to someone else’s, would we enjoy the journey more?! And all that time worrying about how you compare to Joe Schmo could be focused on something productive that pertains to your story. So who will join me in my mission to stop comparing and start enjoying the journey? Let’s own our accomplishments! I dare you to!
Can’t wait to bust a move with you this week! And remember that you are AWESOME!
