Welcome to my Motivational Monday series! I want to start motivational Monday off with a quote from Arthur Ashe:
“TO ACHIEVE GREATNESS, START WHERE YOU ARE. USE WHAT YOU HAVE. DO WHAT YOU CAN.”
This quote is very timely in the age of social media. It’s easier than ever to compare yourself to others. It’s easy to look at what you have and feel as though you don’t have what you need to be successful or to feel as though you don’t have enough.
That’s why I like this quote. Start where you are. You have what you have, so use it. You have abilities and gifts that are unique to you. Some of those gifts are unlocked and polished under adversity. I have to constantly remind myself not to despise humble beginnings. The thing is, everything ain’t for everybody, and there are things that only you can do. So remember, start where you are. Use what you have. Do what you can.
