It’s hard to lead a cavalry charge if you think you look funny on a horse.
– Adlai Stevenson

Being self conscious of how we look gets in the way of our mission.

Worrying about how we look is a recipe for failure. We will forever have our eyes on the wrong thing.

Our minds create a spotlight on our perceptions magnifying everything. We think we look stupid, we are embarrassed, and we distort everything around us.

And all of this is emotionally draining and we are putting our energy into something that isn’t helping our goals. Whether they be speaking up in a meeting, having fun at a party, or helping our favorite charity. We are letting our minds get the best of us because we fear being who we are.

Let others spend their time judging. Your job is to get on that horse and ride. There is a lot of work to be done, and not much time to do it.

Remember, everyone thinks they have a spotlight on them. Most will be blinded by their own spotlight. They will barely see what you see and they will barely remember what ever it is that is consuming you.

Quit being blinded by your personal spotlight and get the work done.
