Who are you to be successful?

Who are you to be successful?

Who are you to be successful?

A question frequently asked, perhaps not directly, often by those who care about you –  who don’t want you to take risks – and sometimes by people who wish they could be as ambitious as you.

There are many variations, of course:

‘Please be careful, I wouldn’t want you to fail’

‘How are you going to achieve that?’

‘You? Come on, in your dreams’

I have never been a great believer in comfort zones – most people in these are as uncomfortable as hell.

I think we have familiarity zones – in times of fear we will always retreat to what is most familiar.

And one of our greatest fears, as Marianne Williamson brilliantly puts it, is success:

“Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure”

As indeed, you are.

Ask yourself this – is there anyone else on this planet – or any team, or organisation, who has achieved what you want to achieve?

The answer is yes – many with less resources than you.

This is especially important now, when the world really needs you – your strengths, your passions and your superpowers – to help guide us out of this Pandemic and forge a great future for each other and our world – while helping those who continue to suffer.

Who are you to be successful?

Who are you not to be?

And remember, all those people who secretly, or openly, doubted you, will be the very first to say, “I always knew you would do it”.

With my love and best wishes to you all
