Day 5 | Love Yourself Challenge
Welcome to day 5 of the challenge! Your challenge begins in the morning!
Today is Transparency Day!
Congratulations guys, you are more than halfway through this challenge. I'm super proud of you but I'm going, to be honest... today is the hardest day.
On the last challenge, 90% of the people stopped on transparency day.
It's difficult I get it. Facing the ugly truth, instead of embracing a pretty lie is not the easiest thing to do. But being transparent is mandatory to "Self-love."
You can't love yourself if you keep lying to yourself.
I want to remind you that everyone is battling through personal problems. These internal wars are part of what makes us human.
We are all looking to slay our own demons. But most people spend too much time trying to hide their issues to protect their own credibility. They try to win these wars by themselves.
It doesn't have to be that way. In fact, it is selfish to not share your story. Because the act of sharing your story has the power to help others overcome while also becoming your own personal freedom.
Will it be hard, yes! Will you thank me later, yes! So, please be transparent with yourself. Just be REAL. Share something with someone that you've never shared. Start by saying these five powerful words. "If you really knew me..." Then use your story as a way to connect with others, identify with others, and empower others.
You will be surprised at how many people will relate to your pain, and offer support in return. I can guarantee that you will feel like the weight of the world has been lifted off your back.
Remember, transparency is another word for vulnerability. And vulnerability is a symbol of strength, not weakness.
Do not allow fear to paralyze you. Step out of the prison of perfection and walk towards the freedom of progression.
Transparency is the path to take you there and vulnerability is the strength that will carry you through difficult times. Today your transparency will lead to your transformation.
We are closing in on the end of the challenge. Stay locked in, and remember what this challenge is all about, redefining your definition of Self-love.
Love yourself! Because it all starts with you...
Let's get it!
