    Own Your Excellence

    by Will Craig

    Let’s face it you are amazing! There is no one else in the world like you. It’s almost too hard to believe, but it’s true. You are one-of-a-kind. You have a gift that you were brought into this world to deliver. No one else can do it but you.

    There's just one catch... In order to fully deliver this gift; in order to fully live to your potential; you must own your excellence. You must acknowledge your greatness and all the reasons you are special.

    Accepting the Challenge
    Why is this so challenging for most of us to do? It's just a matter of confidence.

    Well, if self-confidence were all it took we would, in fact, own our excellence. There's a natural tendency, however, to believe we’re not as good as the next guy. We've had to overcome certain obstacles, trials, and tribulations. We must not be as inherently wonderful as the truly dynamic people around us.

    Acknowledging Greatness
    Of course, there are certain individuals (and I'm sure you've met a few) who are tremendously self-confident—over confident—and own more excellence than they deserve. For some reason they have an over-inflated opinion of their own skills and abilities and are fearless. How do they do that?

    We can all take a lesson from these individuals. Grab some of that confidence for yourself. These individuals are human beings much like you and me. In fact, people are more alike than they are different. There's a better than average chance they are not as glorious as they imagine or pretend to be. There is an equally good chance (100% chance in my book) that you are much better than you may perceive yourself to be.

    Acknowledge your greatness. Own it!

    Coaching Call To Action

    As we get clearer and clearer on our own gifts and use them in our interactions with others, our confidence grows. Can it truly be this easy? Yes. Look at what you are good at, what you enjoy doing and make sure you build a lot of that into your life. Lead with those strenghths and see how you feel this week.
