Today’s Thought: Those who cannot change their minds cannot change anything.
I am often fearful of being wrong; that my judgement on the quality of someone else’s work is wrong; that I will be found wanting and then disapproved of.
I can be totally honest with myself about what I am fearful of.
Today, though, I admitted to myself that I need to be more honest about the areas I am less than I want to be in…..then actually DO something about it. I am sure that it seems a really simple realisation to some people, but it’s taken me some time to get to this point.
Honesty, plus effort equals success and confidence!
As well as honesty, I am adding effort to my goals. I need to make enough effort to work through that squeezing sensation when I feel like I really want to be somewhere else, doing something else, in order to gain the satisfaction of having done something really well. This is how I can gain the confidence of a job well done.
Come on honesty, come on effort – I think we are going to be good friends!
