We recently posted this quote on In Power Sisterhood’s Facebook page, “I am in competition with no one. I have no desire to play the game of being better than anyone. I am simply trying to be better than the person I was yesterday.” You live in a world that has conditioned you to seek external validation, to look outside of yourself for who you are and to use an external scorecard to validate if you are doing well or not. Because you are using an external scorecard to judge who you are and if you are doing well, you are conditioned to compete with others because the comparison to others is how you measure yourself.
What if you and I decided today to change the rules of the game? What if you and I decided to throw out the conditioning that we have been given and create a new way? Magic would happen!
Who you are not does not lie outside of you. Who you are lies inside you in the core essence of your heart space. You have the power to change how you measure yourself and how you define who you are. What would the world be like if everyone made the choice to change the paradigm? What if instead of focusing on competing with others, you chose to focus on expanding you by looking inside at who you are and then committing to being a better you every day?
That’s my challenge to our sisterhood. You have the power to let go of competing with others and the power to choose to focus on making you better every day. I believe that’s how the world transforms. When you become a better you and I become a better me, the world becomes a better world.
Who’s onboard with focusing on being a better you every day? Share your thoughts and feelings with our sisterhood. We all learn and grow together when we share!
