For 30 years, I was thinking it is ok to accept something that isn’t your most desired. Why? Why do I have to accept anything less? Do you accept anything less than what you most desired in life?
I don’t want to accept it. I want to ask for the best in me. I want to excel! I want to work for it! Do you?
I was challenged by my coach 3 weeks ago about me waking up 5 am in the morning?
She said: without a purpose you can’t continue this effort for a long time.
She asked: “What’s your purpose?” Then I ask: Is my “purpose” fuelled by fear or passion? What do you feel passionate about? I have passion to help kids, I wanna cry when I helped them because they remind me of my past... I was a younger brother and I have a wrong belief since I was a kid that I should have a smaller share or something less than my brother. This thought grew bigger over the years and has made me accept less than what I truly desired. I would accept smaller portion of food, a smaller birthday gift and later on in my life, I accepted something less than I desired, I accept myself not performing my best...and told myself it’s okay.
That brought big consequences because not only I accept less from others, I accept less of myself and don’t demand so much of myself anymore. I convinced myself to accept mediocrity. That hurts...do you think something is wrong with this belief?
Deep in my heart I regretted that belief and I keep coming back, get up and fight again after several attempts as an entrepreneur, I still not sure what is going on inside of me. I have a fighter spirit but I didn’t realise deep inside, I wanted to ask for the best of me, that’s the real me. And I like to ask you, what is in the real you?
It was until my coach, she asked me about my purpose, deep inside I want more in life, I want my life to be bigger, much bigger. I want to put up a fight. I believe that I am whatever I want to be. I want to show any adults or kids, everyone has the right to ask for the best, never settle for mediocrity. I want to show everyone, they have the right, to demand for their best no matter who they are.
Go out and fight for whatever you want in life, demand more of yourself....
I have been talking to myself for the last 5 year with this powerful statement “ i m good when I m committed to take action.”
I can tell you why m I so sure of that...
I found out at age 36 a thought existed inside myself always doubting “if I m really good enough?” or “ I m just not good enough” .
Here is the method I learnt to fight against this belief :
I go back to my memory and write down the many moments when I was good, there were tons. moments starting from primary school till my work life, there were so many like winning ping pong competition, good grades at high school, I had a promotion or I won a major business,etc . I found many great moments I have had, I just chose to remember the bad ones and forget the good ones. I won a couple of big new business the first year into marketing. I m really good.
All these instances support my statement: “ I m good when I m committed to take action.”
So why do you think you are not good enough? It is because bad things tend to make a bigger impact. It left a scar. We need to be trained to take failures positively. We often hear “ never give up”, “failure makes us better”, but we never believe them and we couldn’t embrace these philosophies, we never internalise them into our heart successfully.
How do we internalise positive thoughts?
How do we believe in it and act it out?
We need to dig back into our past experience to find proof that god does leave a track of your empowering past.
Name 5 instances that you felt fulfilled or achieved something.
It could be a small contest, winning a sports match, a test you did really well even in grade 1. Did someone praise you are good over something you did well? Have you ever build anything together with your friends? Have you ever settle some troubles in your life? Think about that. I want you to count 10 of them, count to 20 if you could. These 10 instances just proved that you are good when you committed to it.
“ I m not good enough” is wrong. I turn the negative thought into a positive one. I m good when I committed to take action. Once I installed this belief in my system, I take off and never look back.
