    I Have A Confession

    I HAVE A CONFESSION

    I have a confession to make.

    I suck!

    Before you tell me to put an end to my self-limiting beliefs, give me an opportunity to explain.

    I want to come across as having it all together.  I try to be positive.  I try to be confident.  I try to come across as the expert.  I’m a perfectionist, and I want everything just right.

    Here’s the problem:  I don’t have it all together.  I’m not always positive.  There are times when my confidence is lacking.  I don’t know everything.  And I’m a perfectionist with more imperfections that I care to admit.

    Several weeks ago, I announced the 7 Week Stretch Challenge.  (You can sign up for it today by clicking here or by filling out the short form below.)

    7 WEEKSTRETCHCHALLENGEIn each of the weeks of the challenge, I focus on various topics designed to help you grow (STRETCH), help you move forward with more intentionally, and help you make a bigger difference.  Here are the topics for each week:

    • Week 1 – Still yourself.
    • Week 2 – Take note.
    • Week 3 – Reflect.
    • Week 4 – Engage in key relationships.
    • Week 5 – Try something new.
    • Week 6 – Community (plug-in).
    • Week 7 – Help others.

    If you sign up for the challenge, I send you an email each week focusing on these things.  I picked these topics, because I know you need to work on these things.

    Do you know how I know this?

    I know you need to work on these things, because I need to work on these things.

    I suck at taking time to be still.  I suck at taking note of the things going on in my life.  I suck at taking time to reflect.  I suck at engaging in key relationships.  I suck at getting out of my comfort zone to try new things.  I suck at putting aside my own wants and desires to plug into community and to help others.

    I need to work on these things, and you do to.

    The 7 Week Stretch Challenge is for you, but it’s also for me.  If you haven’t jumped on board yet, sign up below.

    What’s your confession?  What area of your life needs some attention?
