The Great Struggle

The Great Struggle

Do you know – that everyone struggles with the issue of Self Worth. EVERYONE!

As in… I’m not good enough, I’m not ready, I don’t think I can do it, I can’t charge that…

Here is an exercise that was shared with me from one of my many mentors that I went through yesterday morning – and I believe it can really help.

Close your eyes and think of the biggest achievement in your life. 
Something you won
Something you had to fight to get
Something where you came out better than ever before
Something where you got it done – no matter what
Something you are proud of.
Got it?
Think about that event for a little while
Dwell on it.
Remember how it felt to achieve it…
Got it clear?
Now
WHO did that?
Was it you? or someone else?
WAS IT YOU????
No one else did that. Right?
ONLY YOU DID THAT
You are the one
YOU.
No one else.
YOU can do stuff.
YOU Have done it before.
YOU have the power and the strength.
YOU are good enough.
Hold on to it.
And move forward with strength and courage.
YOU can achieve great things.
YOU already have.

So know that you are not alone in the struggle. Let me know if this exercise was helpful and share your thoughts with us in the comments below.

  1. So so true. I am still sad to this day that I didnt take the chance when someone tried to help me get in Disney in Orlando…right before Mulan. I chickened out thinking I wasn’t to the level of the others submitting portfolios. Who knows maybe I am not as talented, seasoned or skilled as much as the others…..but now I will never know.
    This kinda hit home like a ton of bricks!

  2. Great exercise, Carlos. I’m bookmarking it because I need to regularly read this.

    It seems that no matter how many successes you have, you still get caught up every once in a while with thinking you’ll never make it work (fill in the blank of your own “it”).

    I can’t count how many days over my career that I’ve woken up or gone to bed thinking it was all over, what’s the point. Then I think back to times I’ve succeeded and BAM! I’m back in the game.

  3. ChuckPerry thank you for sharing that personal story. We all have times where we didn’t step up on our own behalf at one time or another. As they they say, when you know better, you do better.

    Keep on keep ‘in on. Move forward and don’t allow that past error in judgement hold you back. You are better than that : )

  4. Hey Sparky, so true my friend.

    There are times I still wake up in the middle of the night feeling like I’m having a panic attack about those very issues.

    Thanks for your continued support and sharing your voice to the conversation.
