Think you're losing your edge?

Oct 2 – Think you're losing your edge? Are you fearing that you are losing your edge … as a professional … in your business … in a relationship? Are you looking around you and feeling as though you aren’t bringing the advantage or wow that you once brought to the table? Are you making comparisons and not liking how you, your business, or your relationship is stacking up? When it comes to ambition and goals, it is important to make sure you are assessing your situation from a perspective of empowerment and not just merely using comparison and critique as your guide. Our greatest competition is within ourselves. Choose to challenge yourself and no challenge will get the best of you. 

Take an MM&I Moment to awaken to the possibility that your focus on comparing and judging may be blinding you to your real opportunities for growth and advancement. What comparisons are you making and why are you now feeling less than professionally, personally or in a relationship as a result? Are you so focused on what everyone else is doing that you could be missing the golden gem in what they are not doing? If you truly feel you have fallen behind in some way, instead of lamenting over this state of being, what can you learn, what skill could be added, what capacity could be improved, what resources could you tap for creative ideas? It is okay to feel unsatisfied or to want more. Instead of everyone or everything around you making you feel more frustrated with yourself or circumstance, make the focus on how you can be the solution instead of the problem.
