Daily Mind Medicine - Episode #725
In this episode, Taylor wants us to know that everyone is unique, talented and gifted. Never discount your excellence just because you think everyone is just as talented as you are. Stop pulling your punches and push forward stronger.
Yo, what's up? Welcome to Daily my medicine, Taylor Wal chair. Hope you're doing fantastic. I wanna tell you a quick story because I feel like it will be impactful for you, and then let's crush the day.
I've noticed this about my own life, my own journey, and at first I thought that it was just me, <laugh>, which is funny.
How many of you know that when you're going through problems, sometimes the first temptation is to feel like, well, I'm the only one in the world dealing with this problem.
Nobody else does. Taylor doesn't deal with this problem. Why does this person deal? I'm the only one who can't grow this or do that, or whatever.
It's a trick. It's always a trick. Most of the problems you deal with are human being problems. They're not just like you, you personal situation problems.
But anyways I've noticed that there are seasons when I'll have tremendous momentum. I'm in one of those seasons right now.
Everything is growing. Everything I put time into grows, everything I put effort into just has this explosive, dynamite type of feel.
And I used to take this for granted because I thought that it was normal. And then I realized that it wasn't normal.
I went through a season where not everything I touched turned to gold, and I didn't have growth potential everywhere and all over the place.
And how many of you know this? When you go through a rough season, it makes you grateful for the great seasons.
It puts things into some perspective for you. But anyways, what I've noticed is that when I'm in a period of momentum, the temptation for me is to feel like everyone is in momentum.
1:28 And it's a normal thing. I I think it's a, it's an evolutionary task for the human species to try to diminish the uniqueness of our giftings and the specialties that we are born with, and that we develop over time to fit in with the crowd.
I was, I paid someone recently, a professional service provider to come in We, we got to work. We started going through it. And you know, it, it was fascinating because they were so good at what they did.
And at the end they said, how was the process? I said, the process is amazing. You are so good at this.
You, you know, I'm super impressed. And they were shocked. They were surprised, and they were blown away that you know, that they were good.
I guess like that. Somebody had a great opinion of them, and I noticed it because I've dealt with them myself, said, ah, you've begin to make what you are, what, what?
You were abnormally talented, and you've begin to tell yourself that that is normal. You know what imposter syndrome is? Most of the times imposter syndrome is the syndrome that tells you that what you are uniquely talented at, everyone in the world has the same thing.
You begin to feel like you're not actually special. You're not actually that unique. Everyone has the same gift, everyone. And you begin to start pulling your punches, and you stop pushing forward.
You stop taking new ground because you convince yourself that you are not actually unique enough to do it. You've convinced yourself that you're not worthy of doing it.
So here's my question for you. Where in your business or your career, Family, your relationships, whatever, whatever area you want to focus on, where have you discounted the talent, the skillset, the efforts?
Where have you discounted your excellence because you've convinced yourself that everybody else is just as talented in this area as you are?
If you do that, what you'll find is that you begin to feel lousy, and you begin to, to slowly feel like you're not actually worthwhile.
You're not worth pushing forward. The areas of talent, the areas of skill, the areas of practice, the areas of proficiency for you.
You've likely worked a long time for them. You've paid the price for them, you've done the diligence to develop them, and not everybody else has that.
So rest and celebrate in the fact that you are unique and talented, and skilled and gifted, and push the hell forward.
All right. See you.
