Life as a child is a bottomless pit of playtime…no thinking, just doing! For the most part, your parents do the thinking for you. They tell you what to do, when to do it and how to do it. All you have to do as a child is, do.
Eventually, we get older and that is when life as an adult, welcomes another discovery. Those once innocuous decisions of which pair of shoes to wear today, suddenly become life-changing, gut-wrenching moments that WILL CHANGE YOUR WORLD! NO Parent Protection…just YOU! So what does this have to do with being green?
Well, whenever you do something for the FIRST time, you’re green, you’re a newbie or you’re a rookie with potential! Either way, you’re GREEN. You ARE going to make mistakes. But realize these starting points are the foundations for growth.
As an adult, now is the time to embrace those moments of decisiveness, those moments of mistakes, those moments! These moments are an evolution of who you are becoming. Think about the first time you shook the hand of your new employer or the first conversation you had with someone that your liked. Now think about the 15th time you shook someone’s hand or the 15 conversation you had with someone you liked. My guess is your approach has changed.
Believe it when I say, that your days of being ‘green’ passed by you a long time ago: Trust who you are today and trust what you have to bring to the table, because one day you could be featured in a Magazine where Green doesn’t matter anymore, only the colors that follow.
