I went to see author Rachel Hollis’ movie Made For More the other night and it was a powerful reminder that no one can tell you how big your dream can be. She also tells us to remember how far we’ve come.
How many times do we play that tape in our head saying that we are failures? At our job, at parenting, at friendships, at relationships? But we rarely take note of all the things we have succeeded at. Raising kind kids or paying the bills or getting accolades at work or volunteering in our community or giving birth or fighting cancer or changing bad habits?
Rachel tells us to write those things down right now and revel in the glory of what we have achieved. Because it is, in fact, glorious.
That we have shouldered disappointments and sickness and financial burdens and sadness and still managed to succeed in so many wonderful ways.
If we can do that, we can do anything.
As sprinter Wilma Rudolph said, “Never underestimate the power of dreams and the influence of the human spirit. We are all the same in this notion: The potential for greatness lives within each of us.”
Take note of your greatness and know that you can achieve anything if you take action and never give up. You were made for more.
