Limits. Our worst enemy.
We give ourselves limitations that we don’t even realize we do it.
I’m not talking about all the restrictions our parents gave us growing up, which if you’re still holding onto those you should probably grow up. Go eat ice cream for dinner or stay up passed 9 to watch your TV show.
This is a little deeper.
Self doubt has led us to believe that we are only capable of doing so much in our lives.
“Well I’ve never sang in front of a crowd, so I can’t.”
“I’ve never eaten this type of food so I’ll probably hate it.”
Wrong. Do all of the things you want to do.
Limitations should be thrown out the window. Let’s be brutally honest right here: the only thought that should ever go through your mind when deciding if something is right or wrong for you to do is “will this kill me or be harmful to my mental health?”. Example: don’t jump off a building without safety precautions or eat something you’re allergic to or poisonous. You will die and that’s not what the aim is here.
We are our own worst enemies when it comes to our mindsets.
Think about it. What’s one thing you’ve always wanted to do but haven’t? What is your reasoning for not following through? Is it because you’ve told yourself you would fail? Or has someone else told you that you’d fail and instead of realizing how ridiculous that thought is you held onto it and turned it into your own thought?
Take a look at yourself in the mirror, remind yourself that you’re an amazing individual and are capable of magical things. Might take a few tries, but your negativity will eventually turn positive.
Go out and make memories. These experiences are beautiful.
Screw your negative inner monologue. Go climb your own mountains.
