Happy Wednesday! I wanted to add to the Wednesday motivation conversation. I just wanted to say these three words to you and to myself: Stop Explaining Yourself! As we continue to move forward while accomplishing our 2019 goals, we must make sure we are not wasting our time on anything or anyone that is no longer worth it or does not line up with our new season. You can explain and give facts to some people who will be jealous, envious, insecure or even angry about the new you. Stop explaining yourself. You must move forward with your race and run it.
There is no one else in the world who is equipped to run your race. You are the only person in the world with your gifts, talents and resources. There has never been another person like you. There is currently no one who is exactly like you. There will never be another person like you. Instead of wasting your time explaining to people why we are so great, let’s run our races and display our greatness. When each of us runs our own race, we can encourage and help each other. I remember listening to the voices of people who told me what I would never become and to see where I am at now is amazing. I am thankful that I dismissed those voices and surrounded myself with authentic and loving people who speak life into me and my destiny. I also speak life into others and their destinies.
Stop explaining yourself and run your race. The energy used to explain yourself can be used to invest in long lasting and fruitful associations with life giving people. Sometimes we can become so focused on critics that we neglect the people, places and things that make our lives full and fruitful. Bill Gates was told that Microsoft was not a good idea. Uber was invented by friends who had trouble hailing a taxicab during a vacation. You are the answer and remedy to an issue in the world. You are never going to have a 100% approval rating. Run your race and stop explaining yourself. I will continue to apply this to my life. I am not explaining myself. I am going to run my race to the best of my ability with God’s guidance. Here is to all of us running our unique and life changing races.
