Happy Monday everyone! This week’s Monday Mantra is “With No One Challenging Me, I Choose to Challenge Myself“.
The inspiration for this mantra came from a brilliantly written comic about school and learning. The mantra reminds us to keep our gaze on ourselves, especially when we don’t feel the outside world challenging us.
It is always better to challenge ourselves and aim to better ourselves in comparison to one person and only one person: ourselves. There are so many people out there we could compare ourselves to, sometimes with positive results, other times with not so positive results. But when we strive to be better than who we were yesterday, or last week, or last year, the path to self-improvement becomes much more clear.
Aim to have a vision of yourself at your best. Then do everything to reach that goal. Do not worry about the others, or their growth, or whether they are ahead or behind you…focus only on that vision and use it to CHOOSE to challenge yourself to be the best you can be.
We can be our own worst enemies…but we can also be our best allies.
Make the choice.
