This week’s Wednesday Wisdom comes from Coach George Raveling’s “Daily Coach” Blog:
In a world where we can be anything, we often choose to be something other than ourselves. Being ourselves starts with self-compassion, self-discipline and self-leadership. Being ourselves and showing up authentically begins when we permit ourselves to unlearn behaviors and habits that no longer serve us, while leaning into life’s sometimes difficult but necessary questions.
If we stop learning, growing, healing, evolving and nurturing our inner child’s curiosity, we stunt our personal transformation and die while technically still alive. Blossoming into our authentic selves never stops on the self-discovery journey, even if we reach the pinnacle of our mountaintop.
Each of us has a unique, purposeful calling and assignment that only we can accomplish with our talents, skills and experiences. As we go inward with life’s unknowns, silence ultimately enables us to cultivate clarity and connection.
Understand there is no endpoint or arrival date. We are forever students. Each day we are born again, and how we meet this rebirth is our choice. Realize there is only this moment. Yesterday is gone, and tomorrow is yet to come, so let’s give ourselves more grace for where we are while allowing patience and our best effort on this day to be enough.
