Show Up!


Think of where and who you are today…
Then count your blessings…
Part of the reason you are where you are, is due to how you’ve “shown up”…


Another way to say it would be…we all are who we are and where we are based on how we continue to “show up”!

This seems to be one thing that even Mother Teresa and Woody Allen agree on.

“Just show up and things…will happen.” ~ Mother Teresa
Woody Allen ~ “80% of success is just showing up!”

Who am I to disagree?

I would like to add two thoughts to this…

While just ‘showing up‘ is critical…HOW we show up is extremely important as well. HOW we show up is what differentiates us from everyone else who is ‘just showing up‘.

If we take the time to rewind and reflect, we will notice that our foundations are built by loved ones; parents, teachers, leaders, friends, etc. who ‘showed up‘ for us. Their presence in our lives has been woven into our individual DNA.

So the real question becomes, when we ‘show up, how and who are we ‘showing up‘ for?

That’s what creates the stuff that really matters…a legacy…a leadership legacy…and to me, that’s worth ‘showing up‘ for!

    Nice! A theater professor of mine once said that “showing up” and being ready is how an understudy becomes the famed headliner. This post encourages me to be prepared to take action.
