If you accept the expectations of others, especially negative ones, then you never will change the outcome.

Just get started

Most of the things that hold you back do so with your cooperation. When you choose to stop giving power to your limitations, many of them disappear.

There are things you assume you never could do. But how many of those negative assumptions have you actually tested?

It could be that the biggest obstacle standing between you and your most treasured dream is your own thinking. It could very well be that the main thing holding you back is your belief that you cannot move forward.

Imagine what would happen if you were to let go of that belief. What if you stopped focusing on what you think you can and what you think you can’t do?

What if you simply started making the effort, each day, each moment, to move toward that dream? You’d quickly realize that many of the obstacles you imagined, are not even there.

Yes, there are always challenges, and yet they are rarely as difficult or imposing as you imagine. Step boldly forward to meet them, and you’ll find yourself moving successfully though them.

Without a doubt, you have what it takes to reach whatever place you choose to go. Just get started and you’ll know.
