We all know it's a competitive world and it's hard not to compare ourselves to others, especially when we don't feel especially successful. But thinking about where other people shine doesn't help us shine brighter!
I came up with a very simple exercise to remind myself of the value I bring to the world. All you need is 10 or 15 minutes, and some paper for journaling if it helps you to write things out.
Ask yourself: If I didn't show up to work today, what would happen without me? If I checked out of my relationship or my family, what would go wrong?
After asking myself these questions, I know that I am the spiritual and emotional grounding rod for my family. Without me, their world would be stale and emotionally chaotic. I'm proud to say that I give my family positive guidance in these aspects of their lives.
You bring something to the table, no matter what table you sit at. Figure out what your value is, and your path towards success will open up right in front of you!
What's your value in the world? What helped you understand where you shine brightest?
