Have you ever met someone who always found a way to put you down and put you in your place? They seemed to have a knack for making others feel small.
I hate that feeling.
To borrow from Kevin Hall’s book Aspire, we find this:
“You should never treat another person in a manner thatwould make them feel small. And that means yourself.”
Kevin introduces us to the word - GENSHAI (Pronounced GEN-Shy)
When we have been subjected to a less-than-esteeming experience in our growing up years perhaps we have developed a limited self-image. We have a tendency to put ourselves down and our self-talk is often full of negative dialog rather than the positive side. We sometimes major on what we can’t do and can’t be rather than the abundant possibilities before us.
I want to respect myself enough to see all of these possibilities. I want to live a large, out loud life – not in a bad way, but in a positive, esteeming way. I want to explore myself and find out all that I am capable of becoming.
Let us march boldly into the land of GENSHAI - the land of self-respect and self-belief.
