There is a time, in all of our lives, when we look at what someone else has accomplished, and we say to ourselves, “that is so great for them, but I could never do that.” We spend so much time telling ourselves that we can’t do something, or talking ourselves out of doing something that could change our whole world in dramatic, positive ways. Why do we do that to ourselves? Why are we all so ready to self-sabotage our progress? It seems crazy doesn’t it? Why is it so much easier to believe -I Can’t-… Instead of -I Can-? Wouldn’t it just be easier to have such unwavering belief in ones self that you could move mountains just by believing?
Why? Why is it so much easier to believe the negative instead of the positive? Why are we so detached from our dreams? These are all great questions. They are also some of the reasons why we tend to get stuck… stuck in a job we hate, stuck with relationships that don’t serve us, stuck in the belief that we could never have enough money, or enough time, or enough courage, or enough skill, or enough _________ .. fill in the blank..
It can be different for us all. We can all have what we dream and desire. It takes work.. Hard Work! I do not mean hard labor, I mean hard work in changing our programming. Hard work in the area of self development, to change the way we think, the way we respond, the way we see. Hard work growing into the brave, smart, caring, powerful, giving, loving, accepting, people that we all have within us. We can all make such a difference to this world we live in, but to be of the most impact we must do the hardest work internally, on ourselves first.
Find a book, a video, an audio, a motivational speaker, a mentor, a mantra, whatever.. it doesn’t matter.. the work can begin easily, it is just imperative that it does begin, and that you are steadfast with your training. If you really want to change your outcome, you have to learn how. Some of us may even have to be taught how to dream again, and that it is OK to have a dream and work for it with all of your might. You have to rewire your thought process, and the only way to do that, is to learn how, and then apply daily what you have learned. Don’t let your brain keep you from your achievements…..I Can Do It Too!! That is what we must say when we see someone achieve accomplishments.. I CAN do it too.. That is what we must be certain of in order to reach our true potential. Then after you can see it… you can help someone else see it… and so on, and so on, and so on.. WOW!! What a change we could all really make! <3
