Am I Good Enough?
I could never imagine designing something as well as she does.
He’s a better coder than me.
That person is so outgoing.
I’m introverted and feel uncomfortable selling.
I don’t have any clients.
That freelancer makes six-figures per year!
How in the world am I supposed to build a business that earns $100,000 in a single year?
He seems so happy.
She seems so successful…
They’ve got their shit together.
Am I capable of that?
Am I good enough?
You are good enough.
Period. (I could end this post here, but I get the feeling you want a little more…)
YOU can do shit nobody else can.
You know things she doesn’t.
You can create something he can’t.
YOU can be the only you.
But, if you judge your success
And your self-worth by comparing it to others
You will never win.
“Comparison is the thief of joy”
— Theodore Roosevelt
You will always be able to find somebody “bigger”
But they are just normal people.
Who all have the same hours in the day
Who all have insecurities
Who are scared
Who seek validation
Who don’t know what they want to be when they grow up
Who feel embarrassed when they fart in public.
The question is…
“Good enough” as compared to what?
“Good enough” for whom?
You are ALREADY amazing.
You are great!
Inspiration? It can be felt.
Knowledge? It can be attained.
Skills? They can be learned.
Action? It can be taken.
You are good enough right now!
and you will be good enough then!
Now stand up.
Thank God you are alive.
And get to work.
