My buddy Jeff and I met every morning this week from Monday to Friday to support each other in our well-being goals. We use an app called HabitSharing where everyday I check off whenever I finish Meditation, Journaling, Blogging, Stretching, Working out, Staying hydrated with at least 8 cups of water, complete 15k steps a day, and answering and finishing all of my unresolved emails, plus a daily gratitude list. This was the first week, and we both were pretty successful. Getting up early has been productive, and you accomplish a lot in your first few hours of waking up.
From conversations with my coach this week, I realized that I was hard on myself. This week, I’m proud of myself for hitting my revenue goals at work and for releasing my first book. I’ll post more about it on Tuesday when it officially releases for the public. Being a writer is something I honestly thought I would be. It’s interesting how we have these perceived notions and how it changes over time. I’m also proud that I’ve completed 68 episodes of my podcast on the Davidson Hang podcast. What I’ve learned from that process is to trust yourself, and there are always going to be people who are supportive of your endeavors who get it and people who ultimately have their agenda. You are never going to make everyone happy in life.
I also learned to ask for help this week. There were so many people who generously donated to my campaign, and I am grateful that I was able to raise over $1k for the Orphan Futures Alliance in 5 days. I’m proud of my resilience.
I also received feedback this week from a leader at work who said I might have overstepped a bit. He also commented and say thank you for having a growth mindset because I thanked him for providing feedback to me. Not everyone does, and if I didn’t know that I am overstepping, then I may have continued these actions. It was a reflection to improve every day and to be the best version of myself. Ultimately, I’m still proud that I can impact many Orphans and obviously, not everyone is going to buy into my decisions and my actions but I am still firm in who I am for the world and that is a beautiful thing. I’m also grateful that I work for a company that is not afraid to give constructive feedback. I can choose what I want to do with it. I can empower it to help me become a better person, or I can make it mean whatever I want.
