Getting to Know Mom Series Day 17 is all about: What is the thing you most wish you were great at?
Mmhmm...this is a good question because there are many things I wish i was great at...but one thing i find myself constantly grappling with in certain areas of my life is drive. You know that drive, the kind of drive that athletes have, the kind that people like Oprah and Steve Jobs have, the kind that will push someone who comes from nothing to become something bigger than themselves. That's the kind of drive i am talking about.
I am a fairly determined person but i think sometimes i give up too easy. Instead of pushing through...i negative self-talk my way out of things and situations that I can be great at. I always think certain tasks are too hard and i will stop instead of pushing forward with that dogged determination.
I think you can develop drive but it comes with constant self-believe and passion to succeed. And of course working harder than anyone else. You have to want to be the best at whatever you are doing. And sometimes i have it but it is not consistent and i think if i had to be great at anything...it would be to be driven all. the.time.
Lesson from Day 17: Be great at everything you do and greatness will be part of your life always!!
Today we start swimming lessons for Baby Pancakes and i am so excited for him...should be fun times!!!
