Thank you for hanging out with me! From day to day you never know what life will throw at you. And it will often be this way in my blog as well :) But lest RUN WILD and LIVE FREE in this amazing adventure together!
FEAR IS A LIAR….
Like we talked about in part 1….FEAR will hold you back from so many things. It will keep us from going after our dreams and passions. It often will make me even question if what I am passionate about is really something, I can strive to use in making a difference in the world. It puts self-doubt and takes the adventure in our souls away.
So let’s talk and address Lie #2……well it is listed in the book I am reading as the first lie, but for us it is the 2nd…..
LIE: You are not good enough…..
I am positive you have felt this way. I know I have. I have often felt the way I dress, the home I live in, the car I drive and so on doesn’t meet what others expect of me. But really what is “good enough”? Who defines what “good enough” is? Do we let our neighbors, friends, and family dictate that? “Good enough” is an elusive thing. Because really do you ever get there? Do you ever feel that you have achieved “good enough”.
In life, our finish line is ever moving. It changes from year to year, month to month and even sometimes hour to hour. So why do we set a standard of what life “should” look like and why do we allow ourselves to feel “not good enough” if we don’t meet the standard we think represents that?
Because we can never actually pin point what “good enough” is it will torment us at every level of success. You or I may need more experience in areas. But this doesn’t mean we are not good enough to take a leap, try something new or chase those dreams and goals. But many of the experiences we need won’t happen until we have started to do the task at hand.
You do not have to wait to start on your journey. In fact please don’t wait. You don’t have to be the best at what you are doing, just give it your all and always strive to learn more and improve!
The Truth……YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE THE BEST TO ADD VALUE
Did you hear that? You do not have to be the best at what you are doing. You, as a person, add value by just being on this earth. You are specifically unique. Like my son says, “We are all endangered species as there is only one of us on this earth and when we are gone we are extinct.” Think about that for a moment. YOU are unique. YOU are the only one of you and the experiences and knowledge you have is valuable.
But you HAVE to start! So take that step and start.
