“What we can or cannot do, what we consider possible or impossible, is rarely a function of our true capability. It is more likely a function of our beliefs about who we are.” – Anthony Robbins
The realists will say this is a lie, but we are what we think we are. What we consider to be out of our reach starts as a simple thought. We are the ones who create invisible boundaries.
In other words, we convince ourselves that we are this and this and that, and that’s it. That’s all that we’ll ever be.
“I’m a writer.”
“I’m a singer.”
“I’m an accountant.”
You tell people you feel lonely, you tell people you don’t like going out, you tell people you’re a pessimist. You think and you think and you define yourself and you’re only going to act according to your definition.
I’m trying to challenge myself to change. To be exactly who I want to be, to be more than I ever thought I could be.
I urge you to do the same.
To tell yourself over and over again that you can be anyone you want to be, that you can accomplish anything.
I ask you to have faith. To believe. To act on those beliefs.
Of course, your mind will rebel. Your mind will try to reduce you to who you used to be. Your mind will try to simplify who you are as a person.
“But you can’t do that…” your mind will say. “It’s impossible.”
Well, if someone else did it, then it’s possible.
And if no one else ever accomplished what you’re dreaming of accomplishing, then you can convince your mind that you’ll be the first.
That’s what makes the difference.
Greatness is choosing to believe that you are good enough to get what you want. No matter what.
Greatness is a choice.
Greatness is the decision to fight against anything or anyone who tries to reduce you to a stick figure.
You are more than that.
You are more than one of eight billion.
You are one of a kind.
Who you are, who you decide to be, it’s always been and always will be your choice.
“I challenge you to make your life a masterpiece. I challenge you to join the ranks of those people who live what they teach, who walk their talk.” – Anthony Robbins
