Monique and I just finished an Exponential Design meeting with one of our favorite people on the planet. Still inspired, I wanted to send this letter out to those who sit on the bench, to those who stand hidden in the back of the crowd, to those who don’t speak up because they are unsure of their role, or how they are meant to excel.
I understand your feelings of inadequacy because I know them all too well myself. If you feel like you may actually be good at something, all you have to do is compare yourself to someone who is great to send yourself back into feeling as if you're lacking in ability. It’s not that you feel as if you have no talent; if that were true, you wouldn’t be a part of the teams, groups or organizations that you are. Rather, you simply feel that your talents are insufficient. You may be good enough to make the team, but you feel as if you can’t be good enough to have your name become known. You are able to recognize your abilities, but you aren’t able to see how they are anything extraordinary.
Allow me to explain something to you that I wish I would have understood myself a very long time ago: you are enough. You have made it this far because you are sufficient. If you do not have faith in yourself, and in who you were made to be, you will have a difficult time succeeding. I believe in you. #gratitude #love #inspiration #enthusiasm #rickjustus #moniquejustus
