Get Out of Your Own Way - Brook Noel
"Act as if failure is impossible, and your success will be assured. Wipe out every thought of your not achieving your objectives, be brave and set no limits on the workings of your imagination. Never be a prisoner of your past. Become the architect of your future…and you will see that nothing can stop you.”-Anonymous
Good morning! How would your life change if you realized that ninety percent of the obstacles you face in reaching your dreams are created by your mind? I don’t know what the actual percentage is, but I truly believe that the obstacles thrown in our way from life are incredibly outnumbered by the obstacles thrown in our way by ourselves.
If I compare goals I have pursued where I entered them with self-doubt, to goals that I pursued with complete conviction-the results are always the same. I succeeded when the conviction was there, and I faltered when it wasn’t. How can we expect the world to line up and be on our team, if we aren’t even on our own team?
Before we chase a dream, we need to encourage, believe and trust in ourselves. We need to come face-to-face with our doubts and fears, and then overcome them, step-by-step-that is what challenging life is all about.
Your Turn: Where in your life have you been sabotaging yourself? What steps do you need to take to get out of your own way? Who can support you?
Today’s Affirmation: I confidently pursue my dreams.
