You are. Just as you are.
Forget the buzz words and phrases for a second. Let's just chat.
Only you know everything that you've been through to bring you to where you are now. I should imagine that it hasn't been a picnic. You may have gone through disappointments and faced situations where people made judgements about you that were not only unfair, they were plain wrong or mean.
There have been times that you've reached for a goal and not quite got there. You may not even be able to forgive yourself for that. You may not have realised until just now that you haven't forgiven yourself. Forgive yourself. Forgive anyone else you need to forgive to move on.
Whatever your disappointments in the past. It's all behind you now. This moment is a fresh page, and you can write your future on it in whichever way you choose.
Here are some things to bear in mind. If you've struggled, but you're still here, on a blog like this, learning:
- You know how to handle failure, pick yourself up and start again. You're brave.
- You have confidence. Not everyone would pick themselves up. You have.
- You have vision. You could see there was a better future for you, and that is why you are researching what is available, and learning all you can.
If you have courage, confidence and vision, you have all you need to be a leader. That's why I think you are so great. Get out there and lead.
