Someone next to me on a recent flight was reading a book. The subtitle included “stop doubting your awesomeness.”
That made me wonder: is awesomeness automatic?
I believe anyone who chooses wisely and works hard enough and long enough can be awesome. We have the potential for greatness within us.
But it is harder than simply waking up, remembering or no longer doubting. We only experience awesomeness–at home, school, work, wherever–when we apply ourselves to expressing our potential.
It is a slippery slope from “you can choose to be awesome” to “you are automatically awesome.” Everyone has inherent value and worth but awesomeness is earned on the playing field of life, not in the recesses of the mind.
Don’t doubt your potential abilities. But keep going and do the work to develop them.
