Turbulent times in life can eat away at your self-esteem but they can also make you super resilient and unbelieveably strong.
I choose tough times to ‘MAKE ME’ rather than, ‘break me’ and I guess, that’s just how I internally respond.
I think it’s the challenge seeker in me and possibly watching too many Rocky films when I was a child! Regardless of any punches that keep coming, I know I will always bounce back – every single time.
So what is it within me that gives me this fighting back spirit? I don’t really know but I do have this absolute determination and robust self-belief that if someone else can succeed at something, then I can too. I never ever look at anyone in ‘awe’ or wish I was them – I have always loved being me. I was never a fan of anyone or anything – I was happiest just being me.
Don’t get me wrong, there were lots of times growing up when I would hold back, be overly self-conscious and under confident BUT I promise you, I never wanted to be anyone else. I have felt fear, rejection, unloved and lost – especially as a young adult but as I put myself out into the world I started to become more ambitious and be magnetically attracted to self-success.
Instead of happily being led, I found myself naturally becoming the LEADER and feeling very comfortable in this role. As I found my own inner greatness, I would encourage and support others to fulfill their own potential too. Even to this day, I constantly see and seek out the BEST in everyone and that thinking gives me the most beautiful joy.
Many people have called me naive, too much of a ‘yes’ person, a people pleaser and a wearer of ‘rose tinted’ glasses. Personally, that doesn’t bother me too much and I don’t think that of me at all. I know my BEST growth has come from being true to me.
Have I gone off track? Yes, lots of times, and the only way I have managed to pull things back on track, is by realigning to my core values – it works every time!
I encourage you to STAND BY YOU and hold your position as strongly as you can, in the field that you want to grow in. Nurture your mind and body with good habits that will serve you well in the now and in the future.
Focus on developing your SELF-LEADERSHIP and CHAMPION every effort you make in order to change your life for the better.
After all. . . . .
It’s Your Life – GO GET IT!
