"Never let a person who is more successful than you work harder than you." In other words, trouble tends to strike when people get comfortable.
I work with a broad spectrum of clients. All the way from the CEO to the college graduate, I help people overcome obstacles and better understand what's holding them back. One recurring area I encounter is the fear of 'more work'. What do I mean by 'more work'?
As a coach, one of my responsibilities is to help my clients acknowledge their accomplishments. Why? Because we don't. We get so caught up in the rat-race, getting things done, moving as fast as possible — and we don't take the time to stop and review where we are and where we've come from.
A big part of my job is acknowledgement — I help my clients fully appreciate where they are in life — all the hard work, all the sweat and tears, all the long nights and early mornings — everything.
Why? It gives us perspective. It allows us to understand what it takes for us to really succeed. It also allows us to understand how hard we are on ourselves and how we forget all the hard work.
So . . . I want you to take a few minutes this morning and fully acknowledge where you are in life today:
- Do you have a roof over your head? A lot of people don't.
- Do you have a full stomach? A lot of people are hungry in this world.
- Do you have a partner in life? Family? Good for you!
- Are you employed? Nice work!
- Do you have a car? Excellent!
- Do you have a savings account? Good planning!
If you say yes to most of these questions — congratulations! If you have most - great job.
Be proud of yourself — who you are, what you do, who you impact, and what you leave behind. If you put yourself in the position of acknowledging your current position and what you've done — you have only one way to go — UP.
HOW DO YOU ACKNOWLEDGE YOUR ACCOMPLISHMENTS? HOW ARE YOU PROUD OF YOURSELF?
