||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
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
