SEE YOUR GREATNESS!!! And know….. there is no pride in focusing on the greatness within you.
At church yesterday there were a lot of talks about pride and humility. I think growing up I believed humility came with constantly putting myself BACK in my place. Focusing on my flaws. Focusing on all the reasons I am less than. The voice “who do you think you are” was WELCOMED. Because in my mind that voice kept me from PRIDE.
To be honest, I think there’s quite a few that subscribed to that belief. People warn of pride, giving antidotes to remember you are flawed, don’t be happy about the things you do right, don’t celebrate success, don’t puff yourself up with thinking of your goodness, OR ELSE the evil feelings of pride will befall you.
Best & Natural way to handle stress? Get moving! Workout!
And yep- I'm sharing that from first hand experience.
I totally woke up feeling stressed. Next week the kids start school. Next week I leave for Summit where I'm presenting in front of thousands of people. Next week we have family staying at the house while we are gone.
MEANING.... there's so many things I want to get done THIS week before all that happens.
Confidence comes from DOING the things you know are best for you.
That right there is one of the BIG lessons I've learned the last few years!
And you know what's kind of cool about that?
Your spirit will ALWAYS tell you what is best for you. You KNOW the things you "should" be doing.
I put that word in parentheses so you know what I'm talking about, but I don't like the word SHOULD. Instead of saying I "SHOULD" be doing something. I say I GET to do things that work for me. #empoweringwordsMATTER
