It’s all around you.
The messages that have told you time and time again.
Your worthiness comes from your achievements.
My friend it’s time to STOP this harmful cultural programming.
We’ve been lied to.
And these lies are what’s getting in the way of you obtaining your goals.
I see this so often.
Here are a couple of examples.
If I achieve this outcome, then I will be worthy.
I used to believe this in my own swimming career.
Once I make USA junior nationals, I’ll finally be worthy.
When I become a national champion, I’ll finally be worthy.
The truth is when I achieved those outcomes, I was still me.
But what happened to the promise of worthiness?
If you didn’t believe it before, you won’t believe it afterwards.
In fact, you will then argue you did not deserve the outcome.
I realize this is your brain creating a complete shit show.
Once you achieve this title, you’ll finally be worthy.
Once you make [insert mind-blowing amount of money], you’ll finally be worthy.
Once you close these deals, you’ll finally be worthy.
The truth is, you achieved all of those and still don’t feel worthy.
Worthiness is an inside job.
Worthiness does not come from our achievements.
Instead, you being worthy is about you believing you are worthy right now.
In fact, you have evidence you are worthy.
You won the sperm/egg lottery.
The odds were against the sperm to make it into the egg, and then for a healthy birth.
But you’re here.
Therefore you were worthy to be born.
Let’s stop focusing on your worthiness.
It’s a distraction and gets in the way of you achieving your goals.
Stop creating obstacles for achieving your goals by tying them to your own personal worthiness.
Instead, pursue your goals to:
- challenge yourself to create what’s possible for you.
- expand the world you currently know and understand.
- to learn and grow.
You’ll grow a lot from your failures.
This is why it’s important to not tie your worthiness to your achievements.
You don’t grow from achievements.
You grow from failures.
When your worthiness is tied to achievements you limit your ability to learn.
Now go out and pursue your goals without burdening them with the responsibility of your worthiness.
You are worthy.
Your goals are about you learning and evolving to the next version of YOU.
