"We are proud of you, yes we are proud of you."
If you've been following my work for a while I think you've realized that I am your personal cheerleader. I believe in you, I see you for who you are, and while we’ve maybe never met or spoken I really do mean that. In fact I believe everyone already has everything they need to be great inside of them, and the fact that you’re reading this means that you’re that much closer to letting it express itself.
Anyway, as your resident cheerleader I’m featuring a classic high school cheer for our positivity quote today - “We are proud of you, yes we are proud of you!”
In today’s world we place so much emphasis on the major moments that we lose sight of the small wins. When we evaluate ourselves and see how we’re showing up in the world, the meaning we have and the things we’re contributing, we sometimes see things through this same ‘hard to live up to’ lens.
Give credit to the small things that go unnoticed. It’s not all about setting a PR in the gym, it’s also about showing up and getting 15 minutes in when you don’t feel like it. It’s not just about closing the big deal on a call. It’s about how you put yourself out there even when you don’t get the result you were hoping for. We often chase the approval of others and try to do things that make others proud, but you know your challenges and daily efforts better than anyone else. I see them too, and on behalf of everyone I want to tell you, “We are proud of you, yes we are proud of you!”
To wrap this up I want to ask a question - What are you doing well that you should be more proud of?
