There Will Never Be Another You.
Why are we so quick to downplay our personal achievments!?...
"You look great today"
"O, no i don't i'm a mess, this old top? This hair?"
"You can run a mile without stopping? How exciting!"
"O please, it's only one mile, i'm so slow anyway, i barely make it to the end."
Why can't we just be happy for ourselves and accept compliments, acknowledge our accomplishments, and promote ourselves as the bad ass achievers we are?!
Do we celebrate only the big birthdays...30,40, 50 etc. Or do we celebrate every birthday in between?? There will always be someone who runs faster, lifts heavier, dresses nicer... but there will never be another you. YOU accomplishing your first mile or YOU rocking a badass outfit will never be something someone else can take away.
Once we start acknowledging our accomplishments, whether it be at the gym, at work or in our social life, we will be able to really break away from what holds us back and continue to accomplish. Each time bigger and better things will be done and the positive energy and encouragement that we begin to accept along the way will only fuel our success even more.
