Stand Up For Yourself (By Not Standing Yourself Up)

Updated: Mar 15, 2019



What one does is what counts,

not what one had the intention of doing.

Pablo Picasso

Show Up

Scenario: you think about setting out for that long-term goal. You start writing that book, identify vendors for your business start-up, go for your first run as prep for the marathon six months from now. Then you stop: a curveball at work; home responsibilities; sore muscles after your first run. The job, family, new body sensations and schedule changes are parts of life, not reasons to stand yourself up.

If your goals excite you, create space in your life for them. Adding a new commitment means recalibrating different areas of your world. Hours invested to write that novel, run those miles or target business prospects means less time in other pursuits. And the return on that investment is huge. Not only does it serve particular goals but also hard wires you for sustainable success in all areas of life.

Showing up is a growth mindset that begins long before you stand at the race start, in front of venture capitalists, or type the last sentence of your book. Prove yourself an exception in a world where people talk more than act. Intent without follow-through is hollow. Disappoint yourself enough times and empty is how you feel. Make yourself proud. Fill yourself up.

Show up.
