It’s a good feeling when people congratulate you isn’t it? It’s nice when you’re well known in your circle for being good at what you do.
👏
I don’t know about you but I love that warm and fuzzy feeling that happens inside when someone acknowledges my skills and achievements. Being the big fish in your pond is a good place to be.
😄
Now, I’m not knocking that at all, happiness is important. BUT (of course there’ll be a ‘but’!), have you ever thought of jumping into a different pond, a slightly bigger pond?
🦈
Now I know it sounds scary 😬 but think about it. How will you get better at what you do unless you take that leap?
🐸
How will you grow as a person and, more importantly, how will your business grow if you remain within the confines of your own limitations?
🤔
Yes, you’ll become a little fish again and that’s not a particularly comforting thought but you’ll have all those big fish to learn from.

A group of fish isn’t called a ‘school’ for nothing you know!
👩🏽‍🎓
Also, don’t forget that those big fish with whom you’ll be swimming were once teeny weeny baby fish too with the same insecurities you may have.
🐠
Take that thought with you as you prepare yourself.
🐡
Oh, don’t forget to make sure there’s some water in that pond before you make the leap!
