My greatest wish for each of you is to have the confidence to be 100%, completely and unapologetically you. It is in being our authentic selves that we come alive, and when we come alive, we have momentum that is magnetic. The only way to leave a true impact on this world, a real legacy, is by being no one other than you.
This week I want you to catch every thought of comparison that you find your mind off-handedly engaged in. Catch it and re-think it. We naturally find ourselves comparing and measuring ourselves to others so we easily forget the toxicity of such behaviors. Refuse to compare yourself in any capacity. I mean physically, financially, relationally or by any other pre-conceived and unrealistic measuring stick. Comparing of any type will only lead you to discontent with where you are or with yourself. Discontent breeds ingratitude and when we lose our sense of gratitude, we lose our ability to appreciate, and thereby enjoy life.
Every human being is intended to have a character of his own;
to be what no others are, and to do what no other can do.
-William Henry Channing
The best way we can enjoy life is by being true to who we were created to be. No excuses and no comparisons. You are intended to have a character of your own and because of that, you have a impact unique to you that the world is waiting world. Take heart and keep pressing on towards whatever it is that is currently on your heart. It’s there for a reason, so embrace it and be true to you.
