Day 14 #feelingit:
This morning I woke up on the wrong side of the bed. I woke up with a deep frustration and a genuine annoyance toward the morning. I should preface this with the fact that I’m the biggest lover of mornings you’ll ever meet. I pop out of bed the moment the alarm goes off at 5:30 am, and I gladly lace up my Nikes and head to the gym for a sweat session. It’s my time.
My day was just off.
I began my day feeling unconfident. I felt shaken in my abilities. I pleaded with myself to regain my confidence. I asked for confidence. Do you know what happened throughout the rest of the day? I consistently ran into situations that tested my abilities, that demanded self-confidence in my decisions, one after the other.
I ended my day feeling confident. I came home with a sense of accomplishment, a confidence in myself and capabilities that I haven’t felt before. Why? My confidence was tested. I needed those situations to test my confidence in myself to prove how confident in my abilities I should be. How capable I am. Without those testing situations, how would I have known?
Take a look at the situations that are causing you discomfort in your life. Do they have a common theme? Perhaps these “tests” have been given to you to teach you something great about yourself. You don’t know how great you truly are until you are given a chance to prove it.
Flip your perspective, those situations that cause you discomfort, give you the chance to prove your greatness. Go prove how great you are!
