Okay- I am going to say it... YEP- I am putting it right out there- I HATE this saying so much! Why? Because it feels like saying please- go ahead and pretend to be something you aren't- or lie to peoples faces eventually you will believe it too or make it and then it wont be a lie anymore. UGH- really? Is this sound advice? NO! Control your mindset! Wear the most important fashion you can EVERYDAY- The cloak of confidence! Really- seriously let's face reality and create a positive mind space where we admit who and what we are at this precise time and recognize we have room to grow and develop and that we are in fact on a journey! It's why we don't start at the finish line. There is plenty of learning along the way! Enjoy the journey and the growing process. Don't be fake or say things that just "look" like you are successful- DO things that create success. Be quite up front that if you are working towards a promotion or a rank or advancement of some kind- put it right out there for everyone to see and hear. You can't FAKE confidence you FEEL it. You also cant have it unless you claim it as yours. Sometimes people will try to dig at you to make you think you don't deserve to be confident or successful or that you are less than what you have already achieved. That is simply a reflection of their own inadequacies and weaknesses. Don't FAKE it- you will come off FAKE! Stand in your confidence- learn EVERYTHING you can to be strong, educated in your field, a leader and believe in yourself and your talents and gifts- BELIEVE you will achieve your desired goals and you wont have to fake it at all because before you know it you will have it. #BELIEVEYOUCAN #BEREAL
I think I have always known this but I am certain of it now that I have shared a premium nutritional supplement for the last 3.5 years. While listening to a video by Mel Robbins(The Author of the 5 Second Rule) today, I discovered this is a real thing! Its actually brain science. Imagine that! She was talking about the fact we are one of two kinds of people in life---1. The people who believe they control their life- and 2. The people who believe Life just happens. Simply said the Actors and Reactors..lol Which are you? It is a great question to ask your self! A check up from the neck up! I have always known this because with sharing a life changing supplement- I generally run across 2 kinds of people- the ones who control their life and health through diet, exercise, and mindset. The second person simply waits until they are faced with a massive life altering health challenge and PANIC!!! They start scrambling, looking for diets, quick fixes, start off trying to exercise for an hour a day when they have sat on the couch for the last 8 years... Zero sustainability to what they are doing! Fear is generally not a great long term motivator. Mel Robbins teaches you how to become that person of action and retraining the brain to lean towards action and controlling your life rather than reacting to it! I love this! Why not live your life so loud people need to cover their ears and shield their eyes because you shine so bright and your happy is so loud!!! Live in Action mode, BE a PRO-active person not a reactive person- Smash out your goals and create the life you want to live- the life you DESERVE to live- The life God perfectly designed you for! So...which person are you?
Well the past few days have brought a bit of clarity in a couple areas. Have you ever thought about how hard it is to cut through BS to figure out if someone is actually anything like who they portray they are? Point being- what comes out of ones mouth is often not quite the reality of what and who they are. Discernment-So the process often becomes a sift and sort of the rhetoric. It's kind of a painful process and quite tests the trust you place in others. Or perhaps it all falls back onto surrounding yourself with people who have integrity, keep their word and walk the walk and talk the talk- one who lifts others. Trampoline jumping off another persons shoulders to get ahead yourself speaks volumes about ones character. Especially if you lifted the person to your shoulders to begin with. I do suggest you work with a spiritual discernment which allows God to guide you in the grind of the sift and sort. It will never be an easy task but always a necessary one as you choose which people to allow into your personal inner circle and onto your shoulders. I have one piece of advice- if someone is always seeking to see their good deeds in the light and publicly acknowledged- leave them outside your circle. You will find yourself on the outside anyway at some point discarded and useless at some point anyway. Be strong and confident in who you are and what your gifts are!
