Focusing Your EnergyTuesday, June 30, 2009
The other day I posted this observation to Twitter:
One of the most toxic things is trying to justify other people's success. Just do your thing and let them do theirs.
I am as guilty of this as the next person: "Jane can accomplish that because she has x, y, and z - whereas I only have y and z." Cut it out. This way of thinking and living is debilitating. What could you accomplish if you channeled even a tenth of the energy you spend on being bitter towards someone else because they were seemingly dealt a better hand, or because others "don't know what Jane is really like"? What could you create with 10% of that energy if it were focused on making YOU better?
