In the video, the football player had given up on his team and himself. He used to be a leader, but his self-talk had turned him to just another average ball player. His coach used this linebacker to teach his team a lesson. You can always achieve more than you give yourself credit for. It all comes down to what you believe. Watch it again if you missed this gem.
If you listen closely to other bloggers, you’ll hear why many fail to achieve success.
“I’m not an expert”
“They (name of big-name blogger0 are different than me”
“I’ll never have that much talent”
and so on…
I’m a fan of modesty and humility. Nothing inspires leadership and fierce devotion more than a humble leader. But someone who hides behind modesty is at best lazy and at worst a coward. So if you are turning self-deprecation into a lifestyle then…check yourself before you wreck yourself.
How This Applies to You
This is the 58th post on Pushing Social. I almost didn’t write it. Every week, like millions of other bloggers, I wrestle with fears and doubts about this blog. Is it good enough. Am I making a difference. Will anyone read it. And so on…
You probably do the same thing.
However, every week I get to learn an important truth. Feelings are a poor indicator of reality. I’ve learned to distrust the doubting thomas sitting on my shoulder. I keep posting, no matter what.
You should too.
Let nothing stop you because in 1 year you’ll look back and be happy that you faced down your giants and achieved something great.
Ok…Talk to me. Leave me a comment and share what’s on your mind.
