Believing In Myself
I enjoy the times when I believe in myself. Even if I don’t always succeed, it always feels good to believe that I can.
What is the image in my mind that I have created to represent the best possible version of myself? What kind of person do I want to be? What kind of life do I want to have? Do I believe that I am capable of transforming those ideas into realities? Is what I am doing on a daily basis supporting my cause?
What I do and the way I do it matters. That is why details work. I apply the same quality of effort to my lifestyle choices that I would to any job done well.
Life requires a physical capacity to achieve excellence. I block out eight hours of sleep. I don’t skip daily exercise. I think of food as fuel and make unleaded decisions. A body that is unrested, weak, and filled with improper fuel will never be able to create the life I desire.
Leadership is a skill set and therefore can be developed. I am capable of establishing a daily structure that builds upon itself day after day, month after month, year after year. Even if I am unsure of what I want today, I can still be effective in preparing myself for tomorrow. If I wait for someone else to change my life, I will be disappointed.
I believe that becoming who I want to be in life begins with managing the details on a daily basis and being consistent in the quality of my effort.
