Who are you beyond the labels.
Who Am I.
Is the question I was told to ask myself today on the Wake Up Warrior Challenge.
Who Am I?
Who am I beyond the labels I was given?
Who am I beyond the stories I tell myself.
Who we are is normally the story we tell ourselves the most.
The storey we believe the most.
You are not worthy – Is Just a story
You are a failure – Is just a story
You are… Is the story you tell yourself.
Who are you?
Failure is for reflection
It’s easy to go into self destruct mode when we fail at something.
We think of all the things that made us stupid, we think of how everything could of gone better, then we just beat ourselves up.
This is not healthy, it won’t change anything and you will not improve in the future
Look at what went wrong, but without the self destruction
Yeah my speech could have gone better so I’ll practice more in the future
Not your bad at speeches you should quit your not worthy of anything.
Lift yourself up, dont drag yourself down
2020 isn’t over yet
So don’t give up on it.
Yeah things haven’t gone your way
A pilot doesn’t always have a good landing
But they dont blame it on the year
And they don’t just throw in the towel
It’s not been the best year for anyone
Yet there is still time to make a better landing
Don’t blame external events, how we respond today (not next year) will set us up for a better tomorrow
Bad chapters can still create great stories
Real life isn’t a movie or a book so that magical ending isn’t going to automatically happen,
But if you keep pushing through your struggles, through the hard times
Then you can turn this bad chapter into a great story but not if you settle this chapter for the ending.
I had a cool idea for a post today, but then I forgot what is was, so now I’m just kind of improvising as I go,
Because sometimes we can just sit and think too much and get nothing done whilst waiting for a bit of inspiration
Or we can just start something, good or bad it doesn’t matter because it will get the juices flowing and something good may come of it
What stands In the way becomes the way as Marcus Aurelius would say
It’s a bit like when your feeling anxious about something, say a job Interview,
Well during the interview your not anxious because your there in the present but worrying about is in the future
So action helps stop anxiety
We can think or we can do
We can worry or we can take action
We can let obstacles stop us, or we can use them to drive us forward
