Hello again friends!
last week we began our journey together exploring the topic of Goals. We can all agree that having something to aim at gives us much more of a chance to hit it, than just shooting randomly.
What happens though if it’s a target that’s never been hit from the range or angle, at which you are attempting to hit it from? Naturally you begin to doubt yourself.. For most people this doubt alone is enough to deter them from even attempting. And for the ones that do, it’s creates tremendous pressure and allot of physiological barriers in the process.
Unfortunately society does this to us all the time. It comes from all angles, family, friends, co workers, media, etc. Everything we are exposed to can have an effect on the way we think and act. And in today’s world 70-80% of the content and feedback we view and receive are of people telling us NO!
“NO” you can’t do this, or that, you can’t have this, you can’t be that person, you can’t afford this, you can’t take that vacation, or visit that place, you can’t, you can’t, blah blah blah…
Does any of that sound familiar? Of course it does! But think of the people who decided they weren’t taking NO for an answer. These people are the stuff of legends, and their names are immortalized (at least most of them). The Wrights brothers and the airplane, Edison and the light bulb, and many more. These people were not only told NO, they were ridiculed and deemed insane by everyone around them. Once they decided they weren’t going to listen, they were able to push the limits of their potential into new realms and accomplished things people couldn’t even conceive until they saw it for themselves.
What’s the difference between these people and ourselves? Answer is not much really, yes some of them are naturally gifted, however it was their decisions and the way they perceived the world and their own potential, that really defines them.
The good news is, it’s never too late to begin to change the way we think, break free from the conditioning we have been exposed to, and become the person we might not even be able to conceive as yet. The process is going to break us down sometimes, however the person that will be rebuilt, will be stronger, faster, smarter, and more defined. people will look up to you and want to be around you as much as possible.
So the question is how do I do this? How do I break the barriers? It’s going to be a different process for each of us, however we will explore and grow together.
As my time to write this morning runs out, I leave you with this thought.
“Whether you think you can or think you can’t, either way you are right.”
More to come on this topic, until next time friends, have an awesome week!
