Wednesday Wisdom – It’s Not About Circumstances

One of my favorite Coaches said something on a National Wakeup Call that resonated with me…

She said that it doesn’t matter how you grew up or what your circumstances were, success isn’t just for a particular group of people based on how they were raised.

No, success IS for a select group of people, but this group consists of people who are WILLING to work for what they want; the people who are WILLING to rise above their circumstances, and put themselves out there, shining brightly even in the darkness. This group of successful people are for the one’s WILLING to say “that’s not how my story ends”…
And I WILL be one of them. My upbringing was awesome, and I am GRATEFUL, but truly, I always knew I had what it takes to make a difference, to be successful, to change my own life, but I just didn’t know HOW. I always wondered if I would just get by, until I realized in my core just how much I WANT to NOT just get by; I want to THRIVE, I want to HELP people, I want to change my OWN life, and the world… I want to do SO much.
And so I am working towards that. I am working on me, because I have some wrinkles to iron out. I am working on being okay with putting myself out there, warts, flaws, and all, and not being upset when I am not everyone’s cup of tea.
It’s okay to not be everyone’s cup of tea… some people prefer coffee! 🙂
