No Competition – Week 17HJ
Have you ever been at a place in your personal growth where you aren’t quite going forward yet you cannot go back because you know too much. I’m thankful that this was addressed in last week’s webinar. Just that honesty helped me to put some turbo in my momentum.
I was in a bit of a slump and, frankly, a bit tired. Trying to juggle everything was difficult.
Once again, I realized that I was doing some competing in my head, thinking everyone else was doing everything perfectly. Thankfully, my Master Mind group set me straight. We all had some challenges going on. Competing is like playing against a stuffed doll. My mind is just making it up as I go and there is nothing of substance before me, only something I made up.
We are each unique so competition is foolish. Not getting wrapped up in the “world’s” way of thinking and letting go of competing, is very freeing. I’m in the middle of my journey, not someone else’s.
Competition stops creativity. Understanding that each of us is a unique being eliminates the need for competition. Nobody wants to live my life but me. Well, that is if I get to make my life what I want it to be and not what I allow circumstances or culture to make it. I’m done with circumstances running me; I am using the tools I’ve been learning to make my life what I want it to be.
I cannot run someone else’s race; I can only run my race. What is my race – being the best ME I can be.
Being my genuine self means I know my purpose – or I develop my purpose. What do I want to do with the rest of my life? I certainly haven’t lived up to my purpose consistently so far and I only have what time is left to live my purpose – or on purpose.
This is what I’m learning now – how to set my purpose, how to live my life, how to be genuine. It’s work, but the work is so worth it. I’ve already seen results, I have more self-confidence and I like myself a lot more than I ever have.
I’m thankful for the honesty in last week’s webby and it has really helped me to move forward with greater commitment. It’s great to live a life of commitment – that means I live in the now. I can experience my life and be present in it.
So time to keep moving!
