Why You Need To Own Your Story First and Make Changes Second
"FYI...You are unique and awesome AF.
The things that make you unique and awesome AF are (shocker!) unique to you.
Others may share similar characteristics, abilities, and skill sets to you, but at the end of the day, there is no other like you.
So begin by making decisions based on that. Your life. Your story. Your why.
There is a place, and a very strong place at that, for accountability and encouragement from others. Sometimes you need a good swift kick in the butt to get going.
But if you can’t have that honest conversation with yourself FIRST, then no accountability or encouragement from others it's going to push you across the line to where you are ready, willing, and able on your own.
And, to be clear, being ready, willing, and able to take on a project or a task or a new goal does not ensure success, but rather gets your mindset to a place where are you are ready, willing, and able to tackle the challenge, regardless of outcome.
So, be real about who you are. Embrace your authenticity."
