Check out the Super C Runners! They all won a Super C t-shirt and the right to say, I’m Slightly Off and Lovin It! Whether they were inspired simply by knowing they could outrun me, or from taking one of my on-line courses, this group of friends and family found a way to overcome their “buts” and run a 5K. And they’re not alone! Read on to meet some other Super C Stars!
Thank YOU for EVERYTHING you have done to make this such a great experience! You are a fantastic organizer, motivator, encourager, support system, and source of information, all wrapped up in one! Monica Clauss attended the Wisconsin Women in Banking conference and embraced the Super C concept to reduce her anxiety and increase her success both at work and at home!At Work I am a chronic overachiever/perfectionist and find it to be crippling — it is hard to make a decision or take a chance when you fear anything less than an A+. I have been using your “earn a C” concept daily and my purse feels so much lighter! I am currently working on my MBA and am taking online classes. Online classes require constant online discussion postings. I often find myself stuck when writing my posts because I am trying so hard to be eloquent and intellectual, and earn that A+. When I allowed myself to “earn a C” the words just started coming out. And guess what… I earned an A+ after all.
I was a super C rockstar at one of our meetings at the bank this week. I used to get very nervous for these meetings and had trouble speaking up. This week, I relaxed and didn’t worry so much about getting an “A”. I spoke up frequently and confidently in the meeting and someone e-mailed my boss stating that they were impressed that I knew more about the credits than the loan officers did.At home I usually get nervous about hosting get-togethers at my apartment. I aimed for a C on memorial day, relaxed and didn’t stress about getting all of the details perfect. Everything went great and I actually enjoyed having company over instead of constantly worrying about the details.
And that’s not all!
I learned to enjoy riding, instead of constantly “training for an A” by allowing myself to earn a C when I ride my horse. Surprise, surprise… when I relaxed and stop putting pressure on both of us my rides went better, I accomplished more, and fully enjoyed myself. My relaxing hobby is truly relaxing again.
I am feeling much better…with your advice, I’ve been disciplining myself to “stop and smell the roses”, and to spend quality time with my little one…life is so short and goes so fast that the “little moments” cannot be overlooked. I try to operate on the principle of enjoying the only moment I’m guaranteed, which is right now. I have given myself permission to earn a “C” for the very first time in my life, and I’m LOVING it!
I recently attended the ISSRT Conference in Springfield and listened to your speech. I thought that it was great. I was also the student who was in the front row who got busted out about drinking energy drinks. I have not been drinking them nearly as much and am also trying not to drink soda either. I drink lots of water and Gatorade now. I break down every now and then though and buy either a soda or an energy drink. Maybe once a week, but I was drinking a soda and energy drink everyday, so I think that’s pretty good!
At the in-service (for administrators of school district) you made me realize I can kick those “buts” if they are getting in the way of something I really want to do. I’ve wanted to work on my pictures for so long “but” I kept thinking I needed long stretches of time when in reality I just needed the inspiration & to realize I could work on it a little at a time, like week by week. Once I was communicating with you every week, I felt inspired to keep going. Because you really seemed to care about what I was telling you, it made me want to keep going. I’ve never gotten to the point that “I didn’t feel like doing it,” although sometimes I decide to take a nap instead and then maybe work on more photos the next day instead. The satisfaction of finally getting my pictures organized, plus thinking of how proud you were/are of me keeps me motivated!
