A few additional thoughts:
I know, I know…
…we wouldn’t want your light to shine too brightly.
(Or would we?)
Well, you’ll never know unless you stop delivering your good news sandwiched between self-deprecating, diminishing remarks.
I realize you don’t want other people to feel bad about themselves when they hear about your victories.
I realize you don’t want other people to think you are arrogant or self-aggrandizing.
I realize you don’t want other people to become jealous.
But do YOU realize…
…that you’ll have more energy the less you try to manage other people’s feelings?
…that it’s empowering to take full ownership of your accomplishments?
…that some people may be inspired by you?
Want to make the world a better place? Be brave enough to unapologetically share your joy.
