I will not be outdone or outworked by my past self!
I don’t compare or compete with anyone but me. Focusing on what others are doing is a distraction and will set you back years. The more you focus on what everyone else is doing, the more doubt will creep its way in and poison your mind. You’ll start feeling like you aren’t good enough, strong enough, brave enough, smart enough, or worthy to have what “they” have.
Many people will start on a journey and get sidetracked but not you… not anymore. Today, you will take a look in the mirror and have a conversation about your past self and pick out all the things you loved and hated about that person. Then you’re going to figure out a way to bring the good things forward and erase the things that do not align with what you are currently trying to accomplish. Banishing the unwanted, the no longer needed will clear the path for everything positive.
When I write, I think about everything I want to say, and then I jot it down. If my words aren’t clear or seem out of sink with one another, I won’t continue to build off it. I delete the whole thing because I want a clear vision. My old words will keep me from moving forward, just like when we hold on to something that no longer serves us.
Nothing can stop you if you have a clear vision.
Often I will remind myself that I no longer desire to be the solid athletic dancer I used to be, I no longer want to be the badass I was in the military, and I no longer wish to be the BEAST that birthed three children. I want and need to outdo that person.
So I take all the good things that I loved about my past self, and throw out the unwanted. And sometimes I need a fresh start and throw the whole damn old self away, and I start fresh. Reinventing yourself should be normalized if you want to outdo your former self.
So today, I want you to get up and dig deeper than you ever have before and begin your journey. Once you start, don’t stop. Outdoing, you should continue to take time and concentration.
It’s go time…..level up and outdo you!
