The weekly Sunday Thinking newsletter is quick-hit content that aims to provide a booster shot to your thought process as you end and start your week.
"Imposter syndrome happens when you forget that you are capable of incredible things. The mind has the tendency to look at others and think of them as special, all the while lacking to acknowledge that you too have unique qualities that are admirable. Talent and timing are helpful, but what most often opens the door to success is consistency. What sets people apart is simply who is willing to keep going when things are hard, who is willing to adapt, grow and learn when success is not immediate. Consistency is what ultimately turns your talent into a skill that you can leverage and a gift that you can use to serve people well. It takes a certain degree of boldness to say yes to your vision, to follow the quiet pull in your heart that is pointing you toward better things, but once you get there, once you see the results of all the work that you have put in, don’t feel like you don’t belong, realize that this is a victory that you have been intentionally crafting."
I. Make Your Bed
When everything is feeling overwhelming, make your bed.
When you're not feeling in love with your body, eat a nutritious meal.
When your head is full of thoughts, write them down.
When your body is feeling tight and stressed, or you're feeling anxious, take a walk.
When something is on your heart, speak the words.
When the dream is always with you, take a small step.
Sometimes a simple action can help you reset. It can move the energy and change the mood. It can help you see something a little differently; it can feel like an exhale. And when things are a little hard, there's nothing better than getting into a beautifully made bed at the end of the day.

II. Outwork Your Potential
The best way to prove your value is to work...
Is to learn
Is to absorb
To be a sponge
But you always want to outwork your potential.
As hard as you believe you can work, you can work harder than that.

III. Wisdom I Wish I'd Known Earlier
An open heart is the most direct path to an open mind.
The purpose of listening is not to reply, but to hear what is not being said.
The greatest killer of happiness is comparison. If you must compare, compare yourself to you yesterday.
Instead of asking your child what they learned today, ask them who they helped today.
Make others feel they are important; it will make their day and it will make your day.

The Last Words…
"If life feels overwhelming today, focus on just the very next step you need to take. Whatever you get done today is enough. You are not behind if you don't check everything off of your to-do list. You're going through a lot internally and externally so please release the pressure off of yourself to be perfect. You are allowed to rest. You are allowed to have "off" days. You are allowed to take your time when baseline functioning feels like a challenge. Take things at your own pace today. Be proud of yourself for continuing to do your best even when you don't feel your best."
