Maybe things have been challenging and you’ve been ruffling through sticks or wading through swamps. Maybe your life doesn’t look exactly how you thought it would or expected it to at this point. Don’t be so hard on yourself. If you’ve been working hard and/or smart, if you’ve made progress each day, if you’ve done your best to move forward and your life doesn’t look exactly as you expected, perhaps it’s because what’s about to happen, what you’re meant for, is so much greater than you can imagine. Don’t compare yourself to others. Other people’s success isn’t yours. Other people’s work isn’t yours. Stop trying to fit yourself into other people’s containers—especially containers that are way too small for you! Your success doesn’t look like other people’s because it isn’t meant for anyone but you. Maybe you’ve failed a lot—that’s a defining characteristic of highly successful people. If you’ve failed a lot, you’ve been willing to try. If you’ve failed a lot, perhaps it was trying new and different things … even in places where people don’t really LIKE new and different. And, just maybe, what has felt like failure for you has actually transformed other people’s lives or given other people hope. Not achieving expected outcomes doesn’t always mean failure. That’s the beauty of experimentation—you don’t always know what’s going to happen. You might feel behind, but maybe you’re actually further ahead. It’s not a race, but maybe sometimes you’re too far ahead. The ability to envision a better future for the world is a gift. Why not apply it to yourself every once in awhile? Why not imagine where you could go if your expectations for how the world will serve you were as high as your expectations for how you’re meant to serve the world? You are victorious because of how you move through the world. You’ve done everything that’s been asked of you. Every single thing you’ve asked for is coming to you. Keep moving forward and the only real challenge you’ll have is being able to adjust to how quickly everything falls into place, being able to adjust to the extremity of your own success. Ache🙏🏼
