Do you secretly think you’re great but would hate for anyone to notice?
Or do you strive to be fabulous in everything you do and you make sure that everyone sure-as-shit knows it?
For me, it’s somewhere in the middle. Which is interesting because I’ve never been a middle-of-the-road type of girl!
I’m a perfectionist by nature. Detail oriented and, once upon a time, I could be really anal about stuff. (I’m so far the other way now that sometimes I wonder if I was ever really that highly strung at all!)
No matter how laid back I am these days, I still strive to be great in everything I do. And I seriously admire other people who go the extra mile, jump through extra hoops and do it all with a smile and a middle-finger-salute to what anyone else thinks!
I’m thrilled these days when someone notices something great I’ve done for them or loves a great product I’ve created. I’m equally comfortable with no feedback because I’m very, very sure of who I am and where I’m going.
So what does it mean to live your greatness?
Is it just completing a task on time? Paying your bills every month and having money left over? Is it caring for your family without complaining no matter how much they shit you? Is it achieving your career goals, providing for the family or taking pride in the fact that your children’s clothes are ALWAYS ironed? (OMG – if this is you, stop reading right now – you’re in the wrong place – I don’t even own an iron!!)
Is it going the extra mile to make sure your customers love you and leave your business feeling a million dollars? Do you fuss over the details to get things just right and threaten anyone who gets in the way with a good tasering? Like my awesome hairdresser back in Brisbane does? (That’s the link to her facebook page – you’re welcome future women with fabulous hair!)
Is greatness smiling and putting up with your toddler who won’t even let you go to the toilet without them trailing along? Or not screaming as they are tapping on the door and asking what you’re doing (after you’ve closed and locked it tight) while you JUST GET A MINUTE TO PEE!
I think greatness is all of those things. And I think it comes from deep within.
Sometimes it’s hiding.
You don’t even know it’s there.
I think it can even be learned…
Everyone is capable of change.
Everyone is capable of turning their life around, learning a new skill, inspiring other people to make a huge life change or just deciding to be a better person. If women, in particular, weren’t capable of change how would any of us ever put up with the experience of having a child? lol
Or even getting a puppy. Or an annoying new boyfriend!
The secret to being great is that you do it whether people notice or not. You do it because it is WHO YOU ARE. It’s the extra thing you do when no-one else is looking or is every likely to find out.
That’s what it means to live your greatness.
It might be worth considering whether you are living yours.
Just know that you can be great!
Trust me. I know stuff!
