Greatness starts with a decision to be great. It really is that simple. Deep inside you hold a capacity for greatness that is often overlooked and it is time for you to give it permission to shine.
I am writing today to give you permission to shine. Stop playing small; stop avoiding your great potential and instead start taking steps forward to live a life worth telling a story about.
You don’t necessarily realize it, but you are standing in your own way. The mere fact that you let self doubt or fear of the unknown keep you from pursuing a life worth telling a story about is insulting to the greatness placed within you.
Often the reason we aren’t moving forward in life in the areas that we most want to is because we don’t first have a clear understanding of what we really want to change. The only way to ignite real change is to first decide that you are going to make a change and then to specify exactly what that change is and why it matters to you. The more concisely and specifically that you can understand how such a change will positively affect your quality of life, the better change you have of making that change really happen.
There is however a stark difference between having a desire for change and actually activating change. The good news for you is that you can be an activator more easily than you think, and it starts with three simple questions. Your answer to these questions aren’t just instrumental in paving your path to success, they will get you to break free from your bad habit of always standing in your own way.
The three questions I want you to think about are:
- Do I have a burning desire for change?
- Do I have the resources I need for change?
- Do I have a true willingness for change?
You deserve to know where you fall on the change spectrum, so I encourage you to take time to really dig deep into these questions and what they mean to you. I explore these questions, what they mean and how you can respond most effectively to them in the most recent podcast episode of The Confidence Podcast, which you can access by clicking here. (And, as always, you can find my show in the iTunes podcast section by searching for Trish Blackwell or Confidence on the Go.)
Oh, and one final question (and please share your comments below, where there is truth there is accountability, sharing your answer to this question will take you to the threshold of change:
- What do you need to eliminate to let your greatness shine?
