When you walk into a room with people who amaze you, is your thought that you’re not like them or is it that you knew you belonged in the room?
It can be intimidating to walk into athlete check ins or backstage or to an event or a meeting and see people who seem to be or are at the level you want to be.
But remember, you’re in the same room and you deserve to shine with and among them!
There’s always going to be someone better or “ahead” of you in some way but that does not mean you’re not doing well or getting where you want to be or never will.
Rather than walking backstage or into an athletes meeting and thinking there’s no way you can compete with the girls there, try celebrating that you got there at all, you made it into the room, you worked your ass off and deserve to be there.
Focus on your progress and game plan. Those limiting beliefs will limit your ability to do your best and get better.
There’s always going to be a next level, but if you do not believe you will ever get there because others are already ahead of you then you will always feel like an imposter or like you don’t belong or deserve to have what you want.
Affirm you are capable
Act with intention
Focus on the process
Celebrate your progress
