Clare Honeyfield: In case no one told you today, I believe in you


One thing’s for sure. You’re gonna f*&k up! You’re going to take wrong turns, choose the wrong people, write the wrong words, help the wrong causes.

None of this is a reflection on your worth as a person. It’s just life. And the more responsibility you take on and the bigger your dream, the more mistakes there are to make.  The great thing I find about having weekly check-ins with mentors in a mastermind group is that they can help me to get back on course, steer my life and my actions back in a positive direction.

But you know what makes it easy to get back on track? Having a clear vision and being certain of my values. And not only having absolute certainty around my values but living in them too.

Having this absolute CLARITY means I can face my imperfections with self-compassion, fully own my human propensity to go off course, and take the learnings. I can always ask myself “What was I hoping to achieve through this action? How could I better achieve this in a more wholesome and helpful way?” 

Closing the gap between the questionable choice and the observation is the huge win. It’s not about striving towards a life of perfection, nothing in life is perfect. It’s about progress and as I am told by so many people, it is happiness.

Don’t let the bumps along the road make you throw in the towel and give up. Take a deep breath, start again from a new perspective, and importantly, surround yourself with the right people. 

In case no one told you today, I believe in you.
