Underestimating…it’s a thing
Who wakes up and thinks “I’m just not doing enough? I could be doing so much more? I’m holding myself back?”
Me!!! That rant runs through my head constantly. My little ego Missy having a field day with me. Giving me the “kick up the bum” to get moving and keep creating, serving, giving.
It NEVER seems like I have done enough.
Then this quote by Matthew Kelly from the book (The Long View) rings through loud and clear…
“Most people overestimate what they can do in a day, and underestimate what they can do in a month. We overestimate what we can do in a year, and underestimate what we can accomplish in a decade."
It’s so easy to think you should fit more in your day but underestimate your accomplishments and achievements over a longer period of time. We FORGET all the amazing things we have done. I’m a sucker for it!
Just this morning I was listening to my sister’s podcast The Aligned Woman’s Way (it’s a cracker btw if you are wanting something inspiring in your ear buds or car) and she was talking about the lead up to our first launch of the Aligned Woman Academy. It only seemed like yesterday but was actually the middle of last year.
She was going on and on about how amazing her sister was and what she was capable of and what she had achieved over the last 4 years of her life. I started to squirm in my seat. Was she really talking about me? I had an out of body experience.
This woman left a long term relationship, created a beautiful home for her and her two young girls, ensured the relationship left behind was amicable, continued to pay the mortgage, worked in a very stressful and busy position in the Police, continued to run her business, ran sold out retreats (amongst other events), got terminated from the Police (after standing up for her beliefs), moved full time into the business, maintained her health and fitness, remained a loyal friend AND created a brand new online course to teach others to do the same.
Who is that woman? That woman is ME.
That is underestimating at it’s best. Wowsers. If you have made it this far – take a moment to ponder how far YOU have come over the last 4 years. What have YOU achieved? It may not look anything like mine but I guarantee you have changed and grown in some way. If you are game – send me your under-estimation list and let me have a read! I would love to hear your 4 year under-estimation. The thing I have learnt over the last 4 years is this….
All my achievements became real when I stepped into ALIGNMENT.
It all happened when I started listening to MY WHISPERS and what I WANTED FROM LIFE.
It came when I stopped pretending to be happy and actually got happy.
The buzz I feel most days is REAL, AUTHENTIC and FULFILLING.
Do you want a bit of this? I would love for you to listen to my sister’s podcast episode #115 The Aligned Woman
If you haven’t even listened to the podcast but are having a full HELL YES then you are in luck.
