Only one more week left of what seemed to be a never-ending quarter! I think I was definitely pushed to my limits the past 3 months and just overall challenged in overwhelming ways, but now that I’ve survived I can say that I’ve impressed myself and I CAN’T WAIT TO TAKE A WEEK OFF.
This quarter I took on new responsibilities and goals and ultimately pushed myself more than I thought possible. There were times when I thought it was for nothing; there were times when I thought it wouldn’t pay off, but if I’ve learned anything it’s this: it will always pay off, if not one way then the other. I’ve already accomplished so much and haven’t even reaped all of the benefits from the work I’ve put in this quarter.
I find myself feeling inferior to others in terms of capability and possibility. I’ve held myself back more often than not just because I don’t think that I would have a chance- that there would always be someone else that was more equipped. But the fact of the matter is this: we all start at the same place. If someone achieves higher than you, it’s only because they set higher standards for themselves.
You just have to match up with what you want to create. This doesn’t mean that there won’t be set backs. There will. That doesn’t mean you stop. That just means it will be all the more rewarding!
Once you do something that you never thought you were capable of, you will never look at yourself the same. You start looking at yourself as on the same level as those people you once felt inferior to. And, well, it’s because you are. The only thing that holds us back is the fear of failure. That’s just an excuse… a stupid one.
