It’s Not Your Job to Wonder if You’re Good Enough

I absolutely love this quote from Leonie Dawson:

It's not your job to wonder

The full quote:

“A reminder! IT’S NOT YOUR JOB TO WONDER IF YOU’RE GOOD ENOUGH. It’s not your job to wonder if you’re ready. It’s not your job to look at other people and compare yourself to them. Your job is to do the thing that lights you up and that you love doing. Your job is to love your mission and do anything to make that happen. Your job is to show up, and share your light, and know that you will be fully protected and loved and alive as you do it because that’s what you’re born to do. You no longer have to hide behind skirts. You no longer have to hide who you are. You are safe to be here, and what’s more you’re so needed.

What you do in the world is needed.

When you change your perspective from worrying if you’re good enough and instead really focus on the fact that there are people out there who need what you do, then it becomes effortless to reach out because you are so called forth by that passion that you have.

It is not your job to freak out. It is not your job to worry. It is your job to put your actions where your intentions are and to make it happen.”

    Ingrid I love! this. Does it come from a book? Can you design those two quotes into a 8.5x11poster? I’d love to purchase it.

    Hi Ingrid,

    I shared the first quote earlier on FB as it resonated with me and thought it sounded familiar lol. I think it should become my anthem.

    I have recently read Brene’s book ‘The gifts of Imperfection’ and now reading’Daring Greatly’, I love her stuff and find it helpful.

      I also recently read Brene Brown’s book “Daring Greatly” and it’s made a huge impact on me. You’ll see me talking about it a lot in the coming months!
