As humans, it is normal to feel like you cannot put yourself first, that you must focus outwardly and put others ahead of you. However, you owe it to yourself to devote some much-needed attention to who you are, where you are, and where you want to be.
“You owe you” is a concept everyone needs to adopt. Understand that you have to decide to come through for yourself because if you don’t, nobody will. Nobody is coming to turn your circumstances around. You are the only person who can flip the switch and rewrite your life narrative. Be your own superhero. Be conscious of it and own it. Your life is full of greatness and purpose, but you must decide to tell your story on your terms.
You owe it to yourself to put yourself first.
Your Environment Matters:
Most times, we are not the cause of our problems. Our environment stops the greatness in us. To step into your greatness, you need to ask yourself these questions.
- What is the kind of environment you find yourself in?
- Is the environment building greatness in you?
You can’t grow if you are around people with a negative mindset. Sometimes, for you to be able to become who you are meant to be, you need to cut out and subtract the things from your life holding you back from your greatness.
In theory, it’s simple, but the reality is that it can be hard to cut some people out of your life. Emotions and attachments keep us from changing our environments. That is why it is important to remember that you only get one shot in life. You only get one shot in life to step into the greatness in you. One shot at getting inner peace and freeing yourself from certain burdens that stop you from becoming who you are meant to be. You have to put yourself first and take your shot.
Be Ready And Prepared:
The opportunity is coming, but the real question is, when the opportunity comes, will you be ready? You cannot win a game you are not willing to play. You must embark on the journey for greatness in preparation for the next big opportunity. Prepare for your moment so that when the opportunity comes, you will grab it.
The takeaway: Putting yourself first to step into your greatness.
Be careful who you allow into your mind and your heart space. Put yourself first and remove those who are trying to keep you down. There is no such thing as showing up too long. Success is written when relationship and opportunity collaborate. You need to be ready and prepared at all times because you don’t know when your chance will be knocking on your door. You owe it to yourself to believe in yourself and your greatness.
