No healthy person sets a life goal to be dim. No one aims to be unnoticed and unimportant. Not one person desires to be forgotten or cast away.
So why do we do it?
Why do we shrink ourselves and diminish our contributions?
Why do we shy away from notice, accolades or appreciation?
The truth is this:
Confidence is not the equivalent of bragging.
If you’ve worked hard to get where you are and are striving to be the best, you better tell people that! Be the one bold enough to say it. Be the one proud enough to claim it.
And guess what?
They’ll either respect you for it and walk alongside you or they’ll be intimidated and get moved out of the way.
You aren’t sorta okay.
You’re not kind of …
You are GOOD.
You deserve the best for your life and the fruit of a bright future.
I never met a tree that refused to stretch its branches for fear or offending the sky.
