Here is your Weekly Motivation! This is a quote that really resonated with me and I think will resonate with a lot of people. I came upon this quote while reading Jen Sincero’s book, “You are a Badass: How to Stop Doubting Your Greatness and Start Living an Amazing Life”.
If you haven’t read this book I highly suggest you do. It’s an awesome read and it really helps you prioritize things in your life and gives you an amazing way of doing it. The book really helps set you up to action as opposed to just thinking about it.
We all have unique traits and gifts that are unique to US as individuals. I think in today’s day and age we do a lot of comparing, whether it’s through social media, work, school, family, or while casually going about our day; and honestly it’s hard not to compare ourselves with those around us.
We’ve been reprogrammed to do it; it’s something we don’t even really think about when we do. It’s done all type of ways too – comparing yourself physically, monetarily, personality-wise, etc. the list goes on and on. It’s done much easier just because of how big social media is in today’s world.
However, this constant comparison can set us up for failure. When we compare ourselves to others we forget about our own set of talents and who we are as individuals. The important thing is to ALWAYS be true to who YOU are. Don’t let society, other people, or your fears get in the way of setting yourself or your life the way you want it to be.
JUST BE YOU. You have everything you need to succeed and you don’t have to be someone you’re not. DO YOU. Remember to be true to yourself this week! You will see just how much you have to offer and opportunities will come to you!
