Not good enough.

Have you ever had a moment where you thought you weren’t good enough for something?

Not good enough to be picked for kickball in gym class (seriously, who is?), not good enough to be invited to a cool party, not good enough to start your own business. As you keep thinking of this over and over, you begin to think you’re not good enough for anything.

In the word of Jimmy Eat World: Don’t write yourself off yet, it’s only in your head you feel left out and looked down on.

You begin to pin point everything that is wrong with you and compare yourself to the person that is beside you. Questioning if you can live up to their potential, or to Nike’s main motto: Just Do It. How can you Just Do It? If you can’t even manage to cross the border from doubt to belief.

Not good enough.

Just try your best, try everything you can

Humans are not perfect, you don’t have to look too far off to know this. And because of this imperfection we tend to have times when we doubt ourselves, our skills, our mindset but if you don’t know how to manage it, it can set you on a down spiral stage.

Trying your best can result in still not good enough but that is manageable if you put your right foot forward. Practice to the point where your weakness becomes your strength.

Don’t you worry what they tell themselves when you’re away.

What others think can be a huge influence in how you think about yourself. Are your friends building you up or tearing you down? You can either listen to what they think or you can choose to believe you were built to be able to accomplish anything you put your mind to.

Some of the synonyms for “not good enough” are: inadequate, unqualified, mediocre or worse–unworthy.

Would you actually describe yourself as one of those synonyms? It’s time to change your mindset and how you view yourself. If you don’t carry yourself with self-respect and confidence, no one in the world will believe you’re good enough–including you.

Know today that whatever you may be going through, that yes–you are worthy, you are qualified, you are good enough. 

Live right now. Just be yourself.

Chew on that.

A Big Bowl of Motivation: Goals

Consider this your “Motivation Monday”

What is your five year goal?

That may sound like a redundant HR question and probably one of the topics a LinkedIn influencer might touch base on from time to time.

Have you stopped to think what goals you have for the next five years? And what measures you’re taking to make it happen?

Is it a promotion at your job? Launching your own business? Traveling the world? Getting married? Learning a new language? Finishing a degree?

How did today help achieve those goals? Continue reading “A Big Bowl of Motivation: Goals”
