There are many paths to success. Many people use different methods to be successful. I’m finding that he best way to be successful is to do it in a way that you are comfortable with.
Now I’m not suggesting that it doesn’t take some stretching and getting out of the comfort zone to grow. I feel I’ve come along way in that aspect. I’ll admit that I have a ways to go still, but I’m working on it in my own way.
I have a great mentor. He’s very motivated and driven and hardworking. To a fault, in my opinion. It’s important to find a balance. He does struggle a little with that. It’s great to be passionate about something, but not at the expense of other important things. From this experience, I’m learning that it’s OK to be Me. I don’t have to do things the exact same way as he does. Honestly, I don’t want to. I need more sleep than that. I couldn’t function of 4 hours a sleep a night!
I’m taking what works for me and trying to implement it into my own success patterns. There are things that I need to become better at, and I’m aware of that, but at least I know that I don’t have to do it the exact way my mentor does. Listening in on other mentor and coach programs helps me pick up on other tips that I need.
I’m grateful for the realization that is OK to be Me! I can succeed by implementing methods that work for me without becoming a ‘workaholic’. I still have lots of other things in my life that are important to me. Finding balance is the key. While I am grateful to my mentor for the things I’ve learned from him, and I appreciate his driven personality, I know I can succeed in my own way…. and I’m truly grateful for that knowledge!
I am Grateful! How are you?
