What Self-Sabotaging Beliefs Have You Been Holding On To?
"The only limits in your life are the ones you create with your mind". (Anonymous)
Remember that scene from the animated movie Toy Story where Woody and Buzz were arguing and Woody accidentally opened Buzz's helmet? Buzz started choking as he believed he was breathing in toxic air! I found that scene really hilarious, especially the expression on Woody's face, like, "Seriously?". (LOL)
Ah... The mind is very powerful indeed!
So what self-sabotaging, toxic beliefs have you been holding on to about yourself?
"I'm not good enough."
"Nobody else would want me."
"I don't think I'd qualify for that."
"How could I want that (dress/vacation/pair of shoes/time alone) for myself when there are other responsibilities I need to fulfill?"
"That's what good moms do, we sacrifice our dreams."
"This is as good as it gets".
Seriously? Do you really believe that God has called you to live a life of mediocrity and misery? Do you really believe in a Higher Power that has created you to have all these amazing qualities and talents and not use them?
Stephen Hawking, Helen Keller, Beethoven, J.K. Rowling, King David?
What did these people share in common?
They didn't let their limitations and difficult odds keep them from fulfilling their calling.
There will always be people who are more talented, more experienced, more skilled, more intelligent and more influential than you. But if you think you have to be at their level before you can view yourself as qualified, deserving or worthy, you're terribly mistaken.
You were meant to fulfill a calling that's only directed to you and you have the tools to accomplish it!
As you fulfill your calling in life, strive to become a better version of YOURSELF, not a copycat version of someone else.
Heck yeah? Like or comment if you agree that we should stop wearing that stupid space helmet! :-)
