It's Not Who You Are That Holds You Back But Who You Think You're Not

Have you ever let what you think of yourself determine the outcome of what you have or who you are?

I am sooo GUILTY here!!! Often what holds me back is confidence or an attitude of lack.

So many times I’ve held myself back from doing something, not finishing a project or have given up on something because I’ve convinced myself I’m not good enough.

Sound familiar? Do you do this too?

Have you ever NOT bought a shirt or an outfit that you love because you think you’re not skinny enough. I have!

Have you not sign-up for a sport, event or tournament because you actually believed you are NOT an athlete? I have!

Have you not finished reading a good book because you think you are NOT a reader? I have!

My list could go on and on. I’m sure yours could too.

What if we believed in ourselves just a little more. What if when we wanted something we put ourselves in a position to NOT stop until we have it. Truly believing and knowing that’s who we are.

The BIG question is who decides. The answer is YOU! You have the power to decide the outcome of your life.

You get to decide who you are and what you want. You and only you. No one gets to decide that for you.

I am not saying it’s easy, I am not saying it’s fair. Do someone people’s circumstances make it easier for them? Sure! Do some people circumstances make it harder? Of course!

People from the most unimaginable circumstances have created lives and become humans of extraordinary joy, passion and kindness. Who have made their dreams come true.

Sometimes it’s the opposite. People from desirable circumstances choose to live a life full of hate, anger and destruction.

Don’t let you current circumstances hold you back from who you want to be. There is always a way. Don’t put restrictions and limits on yourself.

It seems odd to me that we are so willing to let our dreams go because we don’t think that’s who we are or that we deserve it.

If you want something bad enough, if you want to become a better version of yourself, then you must WORK for it. There is no other way. Wake up each and everyday with purpose. GRIND EVERY MINUTE OF EVERY DAY and go to bed with a dream.

Repeat! Repeat! Repeat! There are no days off!!!
