A New Vantage Point





Thereโ€™s ๐™ค๐™ฃ๐™š ๐™ฉ๐™๐™ž๐™ฃ๐™œ I wish Iโ€™d known when I was younger.


Itโ€™s FAR bigger than achievement or perfection ๐Ÿ‘‡




Itโ€™s about Perspective.



When I was younger, I was always:


1. Too stubborn


2. Too bold


3. Too much of a boundary-pusher



But no one explained to me that that also meant that I was:


1. Steadfast and unbreakable


2. Brave and resourceful


3. Pioneering and visionary




You see, I had to learn these perspectives during some dark times. When I believed that bad things were happening to me *because* I was too stubborn, too bold, too...


Until one day, I looked back and thought


โ€œThank goodness I survived that. I really donโ€™t know how I did it. I donโ€™t know where I got the strength forโ€ฆโ€



And thenโ€ฆ BOOOOMMMM ๐Ÿ’ฅ


It dawned on me. The things that other people told me were bad, were actually the things that sustained me and helped me survive.


My so-called flaws were my bona fide superpowers.



Perspective helps us embrace ourselves where we are ๐™ฌ๐™ž๐™ฉ๐™๐™ฉ๐™๐™š๐™—๐™ค๐™ช๐™ฃ๐™ฉ๐™ฎ๐™ฌ๐™š๐™–๐™ก๐™ง๐™š๐™–๐™™๐™ฎ๐™๐™–๐™ซ๐™š.



Thereโ€™s an old expression โ€œEither a glass is half empty or itโ€™s half fullโ€.


If youโ€™ve been told that your glass is half empty, that ALSO means that itโ€™s already half full of something.



Whatโ€™s your glass holding?


What already makes you amazing?
