I'm your host, Tiffany Sauder. And this is Scared Confident. I'm going through a season right now. That is not particularly graceful. Let's call it. There's just some, like, I don't know, just difficult scheduling things to put together. It just feels like there's like sand paper as the day is moving forward.
It just doesn't have a lot of like smoothness to it. And it was a. Reminder for me that, like, I know this to be true, but at seasons like this, that remind me how we choose to show up on the hard days are actually the date. That matter the most. And when I thought it through, like when it's a perfect day.
So you woke up on your intended time from your alarm clock, you did your morning routine. The kids slept where they were supposed to lunches were packed. The night before dinner was prepped. When you got home, the house was cleaned up before you went to bed, you made your bed that morning. Like you left a post-it note for your spouse, that you love them.
Like you really just did all the things that you intend to do on a perfect day. Like those days are actually fairly easy to show up for yourself. Those days are fairly easy to show up for the goals that you have for yourself. I think we all do that, but we also are all dealt a certain number of hard days.
In a year and the way that we choose to show up on the days where you are kind of a minute late, a dollar short and a little Haggard, like walking into everything, showing up with intensity on those days to take. Way more guts and grit, but those, I think are the distance maker days or the difference maker days.
However you want to think about it for me, I think about, you know, in each of the businesses I'm in, we're competing against a marketplace in each of the things that contributing to I'm, I'm growing, I'm competing against my goals. Like I'm trying to create forward progress to create distance in all of the things that I'm working on.
And showing up well for myself and my goals, even when it's really hard on the hard, hard days. I think those are the moments that define where our life is really going to get. Or do you shut down? Do you implode, do you wait for sort of the reset of perfect for tomorrow? To be the thing that allows you to engage in your goals again.
So this is not to say I don't have an off day, but if I'm being honest, I don't probably have a day where all the lights are turned off. Like where I just stop. Some progress has got to happen every single day. And. This is just a reminder that we've got to show up for ourselves. We've got to show up for a goal.
We've got to show up for the people around us most intentionally on the days that are really hard and are trying to keep us from where we're going.
