Good Enough…
7 Reasons!

Good Enough… 7 Reasons!

It doesn’t matter what anyone says or how you were treated in the past, there are a ton of reasons you are good enough and you are worth it!

Maybe you had a rough childhood that has contributed to uncertainty today, or maybe you encountered many obstacles in your life that have caused self-doubt to make you second guess yourself.

Or maybe you feel the pressure to ‘perform’. Maybe you feel as if there is something wrong with you if, for example, you are still single by a certain age, don’t make a certain amount of income, don’t have a large social circle, or don’t look and act a certain way in the presence of others. And this list can truly go on forever and ever…

Sometimes in the midst of all the pressure, we seem to totally forget all the wonderful, unique things about ourselves. Sometimes our inner critic completely tears apart our self-esteem until there is nothing more to do to do except eat ice cream, watch daytime television, and sleep.

Well, it is time to move on and start anew. Wash away your insecurities because you are worth it and you are good enough. Let me share with you seven reasons you why that is. You are good enough…

…because nobody is doing better than you because nobody can do better than you

YOU are walking your own path. Sometimes the reason we struggle with insecurity is because we compare our first act with someone else’s grande finale. We all compare ourselves to other people, and rest assured: the people who seem to have it all do too! Forget what everyone else is doing and achieving. Your life is about breaking your own limits and outgrowing yourself to live YOUR best life.

…because you are a good person

You wake up every day ready to conquer your work, help others, show respect to others and do good deeds. You are a wonderful person with good intentions and you always try to do your best and that is what counts!

…because there is more right with you than wrong with you

This powerful reminder is inspired by one of my favorite quotes from Jon Kabat-Zinn: ‘Until you stop breathing, there’s more right with you than wrong with you.’ Remember this when you get busy zooming in on all your perceived flaws. There are lots of things to like about yourself too—like the fact that you are alive and breathing and able to pave new paths whenever you choose.

…because where you are right now is exactly where you need to be

Sometimes we avoid experiencing exactly where we are because we have developed a belief, based on our ideals, that it is not where we should be or where want to be. But the truth is, where you are right now is exactly where you need to be to get to where you want to go tomorrow. Accept, acknowledge, and appreciate where you are. Embrace and make peace with where you are, and your journey toward something new will feel much more peaceful, rewarding, and satisfying.

…because you are still here trying

If you have no other testimony right now, you have this one: ‘I’m still out here trying.’ Be positive, patient and persistent. The more you feel like quitting, the more there is to be gained by continuing to do all three. Because the strongest people aren’t the people who always win, but the people who don’t give up when they lose.

…because you already have come this far

Focus on progress rather than perfection. Focus on how far you’ve come rather than on how far you have left to go. Realize that striving for success and being willing to put yourself out there is an accomplishment within itself, regardless of how many times you fail. Give yourself a pat on the back for trying, making progress, and coming as far as you have.

…because your scars are symbols of your strength

Don’t ever be ashamed of the scars life has left you with. A scar means the hurt is over and the wound is closed. It means you conquered the pain, learned a lesson, grew stronger, and moved forward. A scar is the symbol of a triumph. Don’t allow your scars to hold you back. You can’t make the scars in your life disappear, but you can change the way you see them. Your scars as a sign of your strength!
