I want to get real personal.

Aug 05, 2022

Have you ever had a terrible day?

Like your mind shut down on you and said, "Nope. No. I am not doing this anymore!"

That's what happened to me yesterday.

I am in month 9 of a 12-month growth program. I understand the value of investing in myself and continuing to grow and learn. And I know that I need community to do it. I know we cannot grow beyond where we are now on our own.

But here's the thing: being in community and listening to other people's perspectives can stir up a lot of sh*t!

I never thought I would use that word in my communication. But there it is because it's real and being real with ourselves is how growth happens.

My world got turned upside down.

I feel like I was tossed about like a rag doll.

And my mind shut down -  I couldn't hear anything the instructor was saying anymore.

And I spent a big part of the training yesterday in tears.

And I started to feel like something was wrong with *ME*.

Have you ever had that feeling?

The feeling that everyone else seems to get it, and you are stuck?

Somehow, you just aren't getting what everyone is getting? Somehow everyone else has drunk the Kool-Aid, but you didn't? And don't even want to?

Yeah. I see you.

And then, as I fought through the fog, I heard my teacher say to the class, "if you don't get this, it's not the strategy; it's YOU!"

Bam. Just like that, my limiting belief got reinforced. Something is wrong with me. 

But here is something I know is one of my strengths; I might get knocked down often, but I don't stay down for long.

I dusted myself off, and I leaned on what I knew to be true.  

It may be a great strategy that has worked for a lot of people, and maybe it’s even worked for every single person ever trained so far. But that doesn’t mean it works for all people.

It only means it’s worked for the people who have used that strategy so far.

And I really felt compelled to write to you about that because I know that this false logic is something we are all exposed to in different ways. The idea that many people figured out something, or did something, you haven’t means something is wrong with you.

And I really want you to know, 100%, THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH YOU.

You are nothing short of EXTRAORDINARY.

Let me say that again.

THERE IS NOTHING WRONG WITH YOU. You are nothing short of EXTRAORDINARY.

And if you’ve ever been told, “well, all the people I’ve ever talked to get it,” I want you to know that statement is meaningless. It says nothing about you. It only speaks of all the people who got it. And the people who don’t get it, well, the teaching style might be wrong for those people. There are many different reasons why they might not get it. But to insinuate something is wrong with you, that’s a lie.

Shake it off. It's not true. Don't own that stuff. Don't take it home.

I want you to own how worthy you are, as you are, right now.

It's time to get real about your worth. It's not defined by where you are, what you have achieved, or where you are going. You are worthy, right now, as you are.

You are worthy of being seen and heard.

Much love,

Marie-Josee
