Are you too focused on proving?

July 25, 2016 - Are you too focused on proving? Is it important to you to prove something to others or to yourself in striving toward your goals? Is your focus more centered around proving than it is in making progress? When your desire to prove yourself to others overpowers you, it is time to take a step back and understand why this is so important to you. Instead of driving you, it may actually be inhibiting you in ways you don't even realize. Your own doubts may be undermining your ability to stay focused and intentional, allowing yourself to believe you must prove you are worthy, capable or deserving.

Take an MM&I Moment to understand why proving yourself has become so important to you. Are you seeking approval or permission of some kind to justify your efforts? Do you have doubts, which are causing you to think that others are potentially having doubts in you as well?  Instead of wasting your energy trying to prove what you are trying to do is worthwhile, get busy doing what you passionately know you were meant to be doing, regardless of what other people think.

Synergized Quote of the Week
"A proof tells us where to concentrate our doubts." - Morris Kline 

 

Worrying and spending time proving yourself is draining, whereas focusing on what really matters to you is invigorating and empowering, causing doubts to diminish and progress to be made.

 

Yours in synergistic thinking,
