"Do What Got You Invited..."

- Tupac to Sheryl Underwood (she shared on The Talk 061121).

I have made mistakes in the past, and tried to be more than I am, or do more than I was asked to do, when invited to present a program. I got caught up in the "people pleasing" stream, and tho it felt good, I was not invited back.

I have worked through, and accepted where I went wrong; but I think it has hindered some of my later endeavors.

My website has grown (SHOUTOUT TO ALL OF YOU THAT HAVE BEEN SUPPORTIVE!!!); but, I have felt hesitant to move on, at times.

While having a full-time job has also, at times hindered my "side-gig", and I periodically get overwhelmed; I think I have allowed it to let me self-sabotage - even though I can ALWAYS come up with a legit excuse, or reason for something to not go as planned.

I've never really handled change well, because I feel I cannot measure up; or am afraid people will realize that they made a mistake by inviting me.

But the statement I started with REALLY spoke to me. I am planning to incorporate it into my "quiver" of abilities to bring to ANY situation. If I can stick with this, maybe I can grow more? Find the next level for myself?

By the way, I DO know there is a time to push yourself into growth; but equally important is doing what is requested, and knowing the difference between the two. What did Kenny Rogers always sing about??! "You gotta know when to h..."...

Have you ever gone "too far"?

Have a good day, and be safe... #2021LATE beamererin.com #JusTSpInnIngPlaTes beamererin@yahoo.com
