Good Enough

You Are Good Enough [Video]

We finished up the Q&A Series a couple weeks ago and today we’re starting a new video series straight from your feedback on the reader survey! Thank you for the incredible questions, comments and ideas!

Do you ever struggle with the feeling that you haven’t achieved enough or accomplished enough? It’s not a question of “Am I good enough?” it’s an absolute feeling of “I am not good enough.” Clear it out of your mind. The truth is, YOU ARE GOOD ENOUGH!

Take a few minutes and make three columns on a sheet of paper:

1st column: Write down every person or situation that has made you feel like you aren’t good enough. This will help you gain perspective on where the feelings came from. We’re not making monsters or victims.

2nd column: Write down everything you’ve achieved or accomplished in life. This is difficult. Take time to discover what these things are. We’re terrible at celebrating our victories.

3rd column: Write down a list of people that you’ve possibly made feel like they aren’t good enough. We’ve all done it. Pick out a few people that you’re going to talk to this week and let them know that they are good enough.

If you can never be satisfied with what you have achieved, you’ll never be satisfied with what you do achieve.

Today, come to a place of understanding that you are good enough!

Question: How have you affirmed or encouraged people on your team?

And when you see someone who seems to be mad or negative about everything, it’s usually not everything they’re mad about. It’s from something much deeper that’s been buried inside for a long time.

Over a third of the leaders and entrepreneurs that I coach, have connected some of the issues in their business with something that happened in their childhood or relationship, or lack there of, with their father.

When leading people through LifePlan, I spend time working through the big turns in someone’s life, not the big crazy experiences, to discover why they are where they are and why they make the decisions they make. Having this information is the beginning of what I use to lead them to the life they actually want.

In all situations, letting go becomes key. Now, as I say that, there are a ton of friends or spouses out there that always say, “I told you that you needed to do that”. Here is what I can promise you – it doesn’t matter how many times you tell someone what’s wrong with them, or what they need to do, if they don’t ever get to the root of the issue, they’ll never be able to “let go.”

Obviously I can’t go through two days worth of info in this post, but here are some things you can do right now to help you let go:
