Own It! . . . .

What is your challenge today? Is there something that you struggle with, and find yourself questioning whether or not you can get through it? There is a very powerful 2-word phrase that never fails to give me the additional energy that I need to get through my challenge. That phrase is OWN IT! When you own something, you take responsibility for it. You realize that no one is going to do it for you! When you make it your responsibility, it automatically maximizes your abilities, and you gain more power. For example......I don't like to run, but whether I like it or not, my physical trainer asks that I run at the beginning of my workout to boost my metabolism, which insures that I am working at my maximum potential for the remainder of the session. There are days when I just don't think I'll get through it. When he sees me struggling, he very sternly and purposely says "OWN IT", and when he does, I am immediately met with the additional energy that I didn't know I had. There is a feeling that kicks in to gear, and there is no question that it provides me with the mental & physical power that I need to finish. We have so much more in us than we realize! We just need to find that inner strength. For me, that powerful 2-word phrase gives me that strength every time. 

Take responsibility for your challenge today. If you're struggling to get through your workout......OWN IT! If you're staring a pile of paperwork......OWN IT! Show it that you mean business. You may be surprised at the additional strength, power & energy that presents itself.

If we can't take responsibility for it,
we'll always be its victim.
