Demand more…of yourself

Unless you believe that you are capable of achieving more, you will always hold on to less.

That belief is more about feeling worthy than it is about ability.

Sometimes, we look at how our best efforts were received and assume that the negative outcomes bear testament to the value that we have to offer.

We then find reason to withhold our contribution in future without pausing to consider that perhaps we invested our efforts in someone who wasn’t ready to value what we shared.

But, it’s never that simple, is it?

Often, we continue to invest because we believe in the untapped beauty or value that we see in them.

It is that belief that anchors us in the ‘if only’ and ‘what if’ scenarios that play out in our heads, while blinding our hearts from the beauty that awaits if only we invested our efforts more wisely.

At such times, we must look to those who see our beauty, rather than fixating on those who deny their own.

It’s the only way to break the cycle that diminishes our contribution towards creating joy in our lives, and in the lives of those around us.
