Food For Thought: It’s Not How We Start, It’s How We Finish

Food For Thought: It’s Not How We Start, It’s How We Finish

“There are better starters than me, but I am a strong finisher.” – Usain Bolt (image of Usain Bolt doing his iconic pose.)

Food For Thought: It’s not how we start, it’s how we finish…

💡 In the 100m sprint, Usain Bolt was never the first man off the blocks…yet he won the 100m track event in record time❗️

Similarly, as entrepreneurs, we may feel at some point, we are at a standstill in life and elements of self-doubt, fear and imposter syndrome start to kick.

I clearly remember the day I had to transition back from entrepreneurship to corporate (before returning to it) and said to myself “all my friends are years ahead of me in wealth and experience”…little to realise a bigger picture was waiting to unfold ahead of me.

HOW and WHY❓

✅ Our past cannot be changed. The lessons we learn from there are what makes us invaluable as we build a foundation of future success…

✅ Our future is determined through our conscious choices, focus and efforts … which ultimately lies within our control. Remember, where focus goes, energy flows – so keeping the end finishing line in mind, is important

✅ Each one of us is gifted a story to tell and the length of our chapters are different (whether in business or life). So comparing ourselves to peers is good to create a competitive edge and drive results BUT not good if we allow despair to take over us.

✅ Lastly, many successful individuals start off with “nothing”, and today have revolutionised the lives of others, let alone themselves. Go check the history of Tony Robbins, Vishen Lakhiani, Robin Sharma, Grant Cardone…

💎 One does not need to start off as a legend, to become a legend ❗️ 💎

Impostor syndrome – its real AND beatable!

Impostor syndrome – its real AND beatable!

💡 Ever felt like you don’t believe you earned your achievements at your own merits, and fear others may realize the same thing. Or that you don’t actually deserve your accomplishments and people may think otherwise of you❓

These Impostor feelings represent a conflict between our own self-perception and the way others perceive us. Even as others praise our talents, we may write off our successes to timing and good luck.

If the above sounds familiar, fear not❗️ Below are some strategies that help resolve Impostor feelings productively:

✅ Talking to a trusted friend or mentor about your distress can help you get some outside context on the situation.

✅ When Impostor feelings surface, ask yourself whether any actual facts support these beliefs. Then, look for pieces of evidence to counter them.

✅ Avoid comparing yourself to others - Everyone has unique abilities. We are where we are today because someone recognized our talents and potential. Embrace that moment of brilliance!

💧 Grab today as the opportunity to start accepting and embracing your capabilities in light of a brighter future 💧
