When You’re Not Good Enough (But You Are)

You may have noticed a bit of a trend in my blog posts over the last two weeks. I’ve talked about confidence, creativity, and basically how to reconcile the fact that you are an artist. What I haven’t talked about yet is doubt. At least, I haven’t talked about it in any significant way. The clock keeps ticking down on that exam for me and I keep wondering, “Am I good enough?” It’s a tough question to answer. It is something that plagues me and I’m quite certain that if you are a creative it plagues you as well. I try to subscribe to as many motivational and inspirational channels as possible to counteract those negative thoughts but it can be a bit hard.

This article popped up in my news-feed and it instantly clicked.

Tiny Buddha is a blog that focuses on inspirational content with strong Buddhism influences. It is not a religious blog but it does focus on centering and balancing which I find can sometimes be lacking when I start to get overwhelmed. This particular article is called, “7 Things to Remember When You Think You’re Not Good Enough” and was written by Madison Sonnier.

In her article she writes up seven key points which I’d like to share with you today:

1. The people you compare yourself to compare themselves to others.

2. Your mind can be a very convincing liar.

3. There is more right with you than wrong with you.

4. You need love the most when you feel you deserve it the least.

5. You have to fully accept and make peace with the “now” before you can reach and feel satisfied with the “later.”

6. Focus on progress rather than perfection and on how far you’ve come rather than on how far you have left to go.

7. You can’t hate your way into loving yourself.

I want to challenge you to go over to the main article and read it. Come on back when you are done to let me know in the comments below which of the seven tenants stuck out to you the most.
