Are you enough? I often see “You are enough” splashed all over social media. So much so, I have put it in the category of a trending buzzword. While this is a great way to try inspiring people, I want to expand on it.

Firstly, I love seeing memes and the like with this: “Are you enough?” From my perspective, the more I see those who attempt to inspire others, the better I feel about humanity.

With this in mind, I both agree with it and disagree. I know what you are thinking – “Jonathan, what is there to disagree with?”

Well, my short answer is, “Nothing that will stop the world from turning.”

Rather, I would say, that I would like to go a step further and ask; “You may be enough, but – can you be more?” In my view, the answer is most certainly yes!

So, in my view, the phrase, “Are you enough?” should be seen as your foundation for building a better you. Moreover, if one embraces the ‘basement,’ if you will, they can expect to remain idle.

  • Never stop learning
  • Look after your health
  • Do your best to help others

In my last post, you are more than you think you are, I cite some examples for personal growth. What’s I find most amazing about ways to grow, is that they are limitless in terms of their options: “just pick one.”

“But Jonathan, what if I fail at it?” Well, let me translate “What if I fail at it?” What this statement really means is, “What did I learn from it?”
