Inevitably, at many points in time, we experience the vagaries of life that draw us back. The most important factor to bear in mind ‘is to never forget to pick yourself up and to keep inching forward always.’ Jacqueline
Never let others project their sense of limited ability on you. The greater part of society and school rob us big time. We are made to feel that our abilities are limited and the continued reinforcement of these limitations erodes our creative confidence.
Every single one of us is born with incredible imagination, intelligence, and intuition, but when we are untrained to tap into these powers they simply shrivel and die.
As adults, many of us are lugging around the baggage of all the ‘you can’t and ‘limiting mindset’ that we acquired in childhood. Due to these habits that we learned growing up, constant settling, avoidance of risk, and learned helplessness become a norm. Most people settle to such an extent that they believe that ‘this is as good as it gets and can’t be better.’ They are contented trudging along the treadmill of a mediocre life, barely breaking any sweat and never getting anywhere.
Your fear must never be the fear of being different but the fear of settling for mediocrity.
Rivalry has some positive sides. It might energize and motivate you. However, it should never hold such power over you that it diverts you from your own path and individual strength in a blind pursuit of others.
Sometimes we expend too much time and energy learning the rules that we forget to play the game. Most times, you are better off throwing away the rule book and wading in heads on. You’ll figure it out.
Don’t give doubt a welcoming chair
‘cos he’s a sweet talker.
He will overstay his welcome,
and tell you all the things
that you cannot do;
just to convince you
to dig up the seeds
that you planted in faith.
Each day we are given the opportunity to write our reality. What are you writing today?
For the vision is yet for an appointed time, but at the end, it shall speak, and not lie: though it tarries, wait for it; because it will surely come. Habakkuk 2:3
