“Don’t settle for average. Bring your best to the moment. Then, whether it fails or succeeds, at least you know you gave all you had. We need to live the best that’s in us.”
From the beginning of this year I’ve been on this journey to bringing my best self to every situation. I know it’s obviously something that should be a given but I’ve always found it so easy to let nerves, anxiety and just about every other excuse take over when I want to do anything out of my comfort zone. Although I am definitely no where close to giving a speech in front of a giant crowd for example, or honestly even a crowd of twenty people, I’m so happy to be witnessing my own progress. Networking has always been such a difficult thing for me, I usually tend to be the one in the corner of the event trying to think of what to say, yet here I am already benefiting of letting some of those nerves go. It’s crazy how we allow our minds to trick us into thinking we’re not capable of something then suddenly we realize our own strength. That’s why remembering to love yourself so much to the point that you can’t even think to stand in your own way is of so much importance. If you don’t do it for yourself no one will.
