WE GET TO KEEP THE LIMITATIONS THAT WE ARGUE FOR. -LES BROWN
What does this quote mean to you? To me it means that when we constantly reinforce our limitations we not only make them stronger but we began to believe them at a deep level. We unconsciously make them apart of our attitude and thought process. This greatly affects our creative potential. What you think about all day long in your heart, mind and soul you become.
Why is it that people will come up with multiple reasons why something CAN’T be done, but when you ask them to come up with one GOOD reason why it CAN be done they are at a loss for words. And even when we have brilliant ideas that could revolutionize our lives and others we are shot down, first by others, and then eventually by ourselves. I believe it is because we live in a negative world. We are trained to focus on the negative. Look at the news for goodness-sake.
The world itself isn’t negative but the people who inhabit it tend to be. Maybe this is just a residual mindset from the past times of antiquity when life was much harder. It could have been a way to help us survive. Things have changed though.
GET WITH THE TIMES!
Newsflash, we no longer live in the wild. We live in a modern world where many un-imaginable things are possible, if only we can decide what we want, clearly define actionable steps and make measurable progress.
“We Can’t do Everything, but we Can do Anything”
