As you go in the direction of your goals, let’s face it. You’re going to succeed. You already have. You always do. You are bright, you are skilled, you know what you want, and you’re going after it. You’re going to make your mark.
And as you go, there are two things I want you to remember.
The first one is that you are brilliant. Your talents, your skills, your character – there is no one in the world who has the same combination of attributes, expressed the same way, as you. The entire world will benefit when you bring all of yourself to your aspirations. You can have every expectation to succeed.
The second is that that’s good enough. Listen to the advice of Randy Brown, the Executive Vice President and Chief HR Officer at WellPoint:
“Give yourself a break. Give others a break. Keep things in perspective. We’re aiming for results, not going over the edge. Stay focused on excellence rather than perfection.”
You don’t need all the stress and striving of trying to be perfect. You already are. You are the perfect leader right now for what you’re trying to achieve.
Now let the rest of the world know.
