The Terror and the Test
I do a lot of work coaching and consulting with leaders, athletes, authors and other high level achievers. At that level you wouldn’t expect to see worthiness issues, or people afraid to step into their greatness. But you would be wrong…
It’s stunning how many people, even at those elite levels of success, are reticent about extending their gifts and challenging themselves to greater accomplishments. Even though they’re doing amazing things, proportionately they are operating at a lower percentage of their potential than most other people.
You could say they are awestruck at their true potential. Sometimes they’re terrified.
Which leads to a question for you…
Is it possible that you too, are cowed by your potential greatness?
The odds this may be the case are probably higher than you think. The simple fact that you come to this blog regularly, and consciously work on yourself is a strong indicator of your intent and potential.
For most people when they face a test, the terror is that they will fail it. For you, the terror may be that you’ll ace it.
Because that takes away any excuses you’ve been holding on to. And forces you to acknowledge that you have the ability to be great, that you can do more, that you can become more. That you must become more.
If you’re looking for a sign from the universe, that it’s time to move on to your next assignment…
This. Is. It.
