There has been something I've been thinking a lot about this week: what makes highly successful people, successful? Moreover, how do we even define success?
Are Fortunate 500 CEO's made of certain qualities that they were just flat out born with that the rest of us will never have? Were Olympic athletes cultivated like plants in environments conducive to growth? Were hit musicians lucky enough to be mentored or coached by the "right" people? Did some of the most powerful world leaders stumble upon rare opportunities that many of us don't ever get?
My opinion: ask the questions. Read the biographies. But don't limit yourself by thinking you couldn't possibly do what these people are doing or have done. Limiting our potential based on things we think we will never have or be capable of is a lie we tell ourselves because we're scared. We doubt, we overthink, we plan without taking action, and worst of all, we make excuses. That's real, that's life.
I challenge you this day, if you are struggling with these questions as I and many others have or currently are, start seeing yourself as a work in progress. You may not have met your standard of success - yet. And that's okay. Start small, here's something that will help.
