“Just” is a word we should use sparingly with ourselves. “I’m just a mom,” or “I’m just an employee,” or “I’m just a woman,” or “I’m just a child.”
“Just” limits you. It strips away the potential you have, what you can reach. You aren’t just you.
You are becoming, always. You are changing, growing, learning, experiencing. And if you aren’t doing that well, you can, anytime.
It’s a choice. Reaching your potential is always before you and you can choose it today, now.
You’re not just an associate; you can become a partner. You’re not just an employee; you can become an owner. You’re not just a mom; you’re molding the future. You’re not just a kid; you can be wise as a sage.
It will take work, risk, overcoming challenges, facing fears. But you can do it. You just have to do it, go through the pain, face the fear, read that book, glean that lesson.
“Just” doesn’t do you justice. It’s small and keeps you low. That’s just what it does.
You’re more than just the present you. You can always become the future you.
You’re never just you. You can become a better you. Choose it now.
Choose it always.
