Avoid the Tendency to Underestimate Your Greatness

As a whole I think there is a sad tendency in most of us to underestimate just how powerful we are. Just how much greatness lies inside each and every one of us - just waiting to get out. The reality is if you knew just how special you were - and how much greatness went into making you the unique you that you are I'm convinced you'd immediately know that nothing can truly keep you from achieving that which you want in your life.

The journey is not always an easy one - very little of lasting or true value is first paved with an easy road. In fact we often find it is those very times we believed to be insurmountable that are often most responsible for our gaining the skills it took to reach our eventual success. What I'm suggesting is that the skills it takes to become that which we desire to be are learned only through times of hardship or unrest. Certainly the good times and study in self-improvement plays a part, but don't discount the importance of life's challenges either. In the end all parts of our life can be valuable teachers.

We need only accept that each event - positive or negative can hold in it an opportunity to be made better for having experienced it. Now that's certainly not to say that we find any sort of joy in each and every one of life's events - certainly not the negative ones anyway.

However, it is I believe worthwhile to look for the lessons that exist in both the good and bad in our lives. Being careful not to dwell on the negative. Remember, there is a huge difference between dwelling on - and simply learning from and moving past something.

Here's wishing you great success along the journey of life,
