You are greater than any test or standard even if your thoughts or others tell you otherwise, you must believe it is your greatest power….
Let me repeat that: You are GREATER than any test, any negative self doubting limiting belief, society standard or any number.
It really doesn’t matter the test score, what matters, is how hard you try. This is why…..
The world needs you to be empathetic and kind. A test doesn’t measure that.
We need to love ourselves and love others. A test doesn’t measure that.
Learning should be enjoyed to continue. A test doesn’t measure that.
Because we all need to treat each other with respect. A test doesn’t measure that.
The world needs people filled with confidence. A test doesn’t measure that.
Our lives need us to discover and try new things. A test doesn’t measure that.
A life lived should be daring and adventurous and full of ops a daisy 10,000 ways not to do that but I have learnt a lot experiences that make memories of a life time. A test doesn’t measure that.
A world needs friendship and each of us to be a friend and the love we wish to see in the world. A test doesn’t measure that.
The world needs creativity to change it. A test doesn’t measure that.
Now, listen, I know that when life is standardising us by a test or a society standard that it’s hard to remember that. I get it. I struggle too. We live in a world of grades and tests, numbers and untruths that only damage us by creating unrealistic society standards.
But this world also understands true value.
And that is what I want you to remember as you read those questions and fill in your answers to any test or as you live your life and fill up your memory box.
You are greater than any test or number or standard.
You are valuable and awesome and a gift to this world.
Not because of a test or your lived up to a standard or a number of expectation.
Simply because you are you.
It’s never been about anything but us and our accountability to see the truth through the mixed messages of society and our accountability to attach more wisely to what matters or use better what helps us and let go of what doesn’t.
It has never been social media that is the issue, it is out intentions and how we use and treat others on it. We must follow people that inspire us and motive us. Engage with experts or people we can learn from. Create genuine and empowering relationships from it. We have to be the change we wish to see. We must actively stop mindlessly scrolling, complaining, hating and engaging in negativity. The world offline in life and online in life on social media gives us beauty and pain. The greatest lesson we will ever learn is that it is all a gift too.
We are the ones who build our walls and we must hold no doubt we have the capacity to tear them down too. If we are ever going to survive, we are all going to have to stop pointing the finger and become accountable for the chaos we make online and offline in all of life. We have to collect the moments, people and things that inspire us rather than break us and hold them close to us. We must see through our blinkers made of society’s messages and open our hearts. And for those days when the sun doesn’t rise or rises slowly and your days are dark. Please reach into your core and remember the warmth. Remind yourself the light will return again.
We all so often guard ourself from the sadness, not realising that we ourselves are closed off from happiness the world is trying to show or give us. Stay open. It is how the light gets in and the stars and moon shine even in the darkest blackest of nights. Stay open and love harder.
