“A Journey of a Thousand Miles Starts with a single step “ (Chapter 64 of the Dao De Jing)
We need to accept that we all have this other voice that consistently tells us we are inadequate
“People become Leaders when they first try to master something for themselves!
At the same time, we have this other voice that consistently tells them they are inadequate, that they are not enough, not smart enough, not focused enough, not thin enough, not experienced enough, not good enough.
The strange thing is that often the more they do, and the more people they help, the louder the voice of inadequacy becomes.
Whether you are just starting this journey, or you’ve been at it for a while just know that the biggest hurdle you are likely to face is being OK with positioning yourself as an expert.
What’s equally important to understand is you’re not alone, I really feel for people struggling with that negative inner voice because in all honesty that’s the way I often feel.
As I am out there in the trenches every single day I still wrestle with these feelings of inadequacy. As I talk to people, I realize that these same feelings keep most people from ever taking on the mantle of an expert.
The voice keeps them from stepping up and stepping into that role. And It’s a tragedy for a couple of reasons. First, it deprives them of the experience and the opportunities they should have and more importantly, it deprives the people of whose lives they could change.
You have the ability and I believe the responsibility to serve others with your gift whatever they are! You’ve been blessed with talent ideas and unique abilities that have gotten you to where you are today in life. And these gifts were given to you so you can share them with others!
There are people today that need what you have, and they are just waiting for you to find your voice so you can help them change their lives. What a tragedy for them if you do not develop your voice now!”
