In my last blog post, I wrote about scarcity. I would just like to continue the discussion a bit further.
Do you tell yourself, “I’m not ___________ enough?”
We can fill in the blank with hundreds of words but ultimately the answer is probably just “I’m not enough.”
This type of long-term thinking starts to shake our confidence and our love of self. This statement also is a comparison to others. Fundamentally, we are never going to be good enough when we believe this type of negative self talk.
I realized a few weeks ago that I was in a funk. I am a list maker and love to check things off my list. It gives me a sense of accomplishment. Unfortunately, over a couple of weeks nothing was getting completed and things were adding to the list. That was the trigger…..
I was off and running. I had been giving myself a negative talking to everyday about all the things that were undone and my ability as a leader, mother, etc. to get them done. I was just not good enough! Then one morning as I was sitting at my vanity I heard myself.
Well, let me tell you, I gave myself a good talking to. Right then, right there I said: Now just stop it. (I sounded like my mother for a moment). Who you are is not measured by a to do list. There can be unseen road blocks and actions of others to slow you down. The important thing is to tell yourself you can do it. Work on it day by day. Rome wasn’t conquered in a day and you are not measured by your to do list.
