I recently finished reading the book Hustle as part of a team of 7 coaches for The Lean Life Project. Our role as coaches was to each give a daily video on our assigned day per week to either inspire/encourage or sum up our reading each day of that book.
Since I was the final coach on the final day of the 28-day project... I thought rather than do another video... where by the way I realized I like to use the word "um" a lot... I thought I'd sum up our month & our reading with a written post instead.
It was posted on our private Facebook group, but my very sweet & always-encouraging friend remembered this post from last month & reminded me to re-read my own words today.
I thought I would share those words on here... as they could be the encouragement someone else needs to see...
“If you truly understood the greatness inside of you, if you truly saw in yourself what God sees in you, you would stop messing around with parties, drugs, TV, mindless activities, video games, foolishness, and anyone in your life who is intent on keeping you from becoming everything you were created to be.”
Very thought-provoking, right?
Add into that quote whatever it is that has a hold on YOU, and realize that it’s keeping you from becoming GREAT.
It could be junk food, lack of exercise, etc. We all have things we struggle with or use as a “crutch.” Sometimes what’s holding us back from success or greatness is the fear failure, negativity or drama in our life. Sometimes it’s too much social media and not enough realizing that your life is good WITHOUT comparison to other’s.
I’m so thankful I was part of this 28-day journey with you. I’m so thankful it was the reason this book came into my life because it made a big impact on me when I needed to hear it the most.
“Strength is only built through resistance. Greatness is only built through trials. Diamonds are only formed under pressure. Gold is only refined through fire.”
Carry on with your awesome selves… ♥
“Become so great they can’t ignore you.”
