We’ve all had the thoughts: Who am I to be so bold? Who am I to expect this? Who am I to think that I can…?
At some point, you have to decide for yourself.
I am someone who: ________________________
How you view yourself, how you talk about yourself, and what you believe to be true all make an enormous impact on your behavior.
You have to believe you can do the thing you want to do. Believe you can be the change.
Purposeful Action: Write out who you are at your best. Who are you to… see your positive vision to fruition? Write it out in detail. Why you? Why now? Keep it positive. 😉
Remember that every single person on the planet doubts their abilities in some respect. (Unless you’re a psychopath, but I’m hoping that’s not the case.) I’ve also heard that the more you know, the more you doubt. Simply because you see how many different factors impact what you’re doing.
Today I want you to own WHO YOU ARE to be doing what you’re doing. There’s no better person.
I have a personal philosophy in life: If somebody else can do something that I’m doing, they should do it. And what I want to do is find things that would represent a unique contribution to the world – the contribution that only I, and my portfolio of talents, can make happen. Those are my priorities in life.
– Neil deGrasse Tyson
