For generations we were made to feel less of a person for wanting more. Aspirations that our inner circle couldn’t achieve were buried alive. Overgrowing those around us led to negative projections from the community and the verdict was most of the times the same: they’ve achieved this much because of unethical work or privileged upbringing.
With all this luggage to carry we unconsciously limit ourselves and put a cap on our dreams. If despite all odds we’re on our way to success, all that negativity might lead to us questioning not only our ability, but our merit and eligibility in achieving success.
Things to remember:
- Success is a reflection of work, failure, learning and growth
- We are all worthy of success. Saying the opposite is like saying ‘We don’t deserve to work, fail, learn and grow’
- Being worthy might not be a characteristic that everyone agrees with, but success cannot be contested.
