There’s an old saying that goes “People will never rise above their own opinion of themselves and sadly, that opinion is usually rather low”
Yet we can NEVER be more than we believe is possible, so we should ALL start believing in possibilities, right!?
We have to become our own Publicity Agent
We can’t hire anyone else to do our press-ups for us – and it’s the same when it comes to bigging ourselves up!
We have to start talking openly about our positive traits and qualities and strengths and success stories, especially at this time, when life has thrown us the hugest curve ball we’ve ever been thrown and we must find ways to focus our energy on the good stuff, because “our energy flows to where our attention goes!”
We absolutely HAVE to focus on the positive right now, accentuate all that’s good in life (and there IS plenty of good happening in life right now) and we definitely need to flaunt all that’s good and positive about US too, because there’s plenty of good inside of each of us as well!
I came across a lovely post recently on Facebook that proves my point beautifully, which I thought I’d share with you this week…
My Father said to me “This is a watch your Grandfather gave me. It’s more than 200 years old and I want you to have it. But before I give it to you, take it to the watch shop and tell them you want to sell it and see how much they offer you“
So off I went and then came back to my Father and said, “The watchmaker offered me £5 for Grandad’s watch, because it’s so old“
My Father then said to me “Go to the coffee shop and tell them you want to sell it…and see how much they offer you“
I went and then came back and said to my Father “They offered me £5 too“
My Father then said to me “Ok, go to the museum and show them Grandad’s watch. Tell them you want to sell it and see how much they offer you“
I went to the museum, then came back and exclaimed to my Father “They offered me £1 million pounds for the watch Dad!“
My Father replied “I wanted to let you know that the right place values you in the right way. Don’t put yourself in the wrong place and then get angry if you’re not valued. Those that know your value are those who appreciate you, so don’t stay in a place where nobody sees your value“
Know your worth
Couldn’t have put it better myself 🙂
Until next time – stay safe, stay sane and stay FIT!
