Raise your Standards
When I say we hold ourselves to a higher standard, I am not talking about in comparison to someone else. We all know that comparison is a huge thief of joy so let’s not worry about what the next person has achieved (unless we are taking advice on how to be better at what we do because they have been there).
You know what you are capable of becoming and it is time to step out! We all need to take a deep breath and show up for ourselves. Let the world know that it’s about to be on! When we hold ourselves to a high standard, we should change the way we speak to ourselves.
It may sound a little cocky, but understand that you are encouraging yourself and it may take more of a push than a little affirmation. You may be talented enough to do the job, but what about being more than talented enough. What about being more than able, more than confident, more than ready to get the job done?
I am a blogger and a mom of 3 sons. It has not been easy raising military brats, but I tell you that I have fallen deeper in love with them by the minute. One has graduated college with his Bachelors, works as a firefighter and behavior health technician with autistic children and is heading back for his Masters after a small break. My middle son is going into his third year of college. My last little guy is currently being home-schooled and we are having a blast!! Although 2 of my boys are grown and doing their thing, we remain a tightly-knit family. Blogging about my life and struggles and my wins was definitely a dream of mine.
