Hey You, behind the screen! Yes, YOU!
Come a little closer, I have something to tell you. Don’t be scared, but first, let me ask you something.
What do you want? What do you really want to do and achieve in life?
Now, if you’re like the majority of us, you’re probably also going though the reasons in you head as to why you can’t actually do this thing you really want. But why? What’s with all the doubts? All the negativity, the excuses, and endless fruitless wishing?
Really, I want you to say it out loud now. Give real voice to the reasons and excuses you have been telling yourself in your head. Don’t feel silly, it’s okay. I’ll wait right here while you do so. I’ll do it too! Ready, 1…2…3…
You did it? Okay, now say it a few more times. Sounds pretty silly right? Giving voice to that kind of negativity and excuses. It sounds foolish. Those excuses make us look so unconfident and well, rather dumb. Not to be harsh, but it’s the truth.
Sometimes we need that reminder, that reality check and kick-in-the-pants. Now just take a deep breath. I’m going to tell you why we all could use this reality check and why these excuses and self-doubt need to stop.
For some reason we find it so easy to doubt ourselves and give excuses as to why we can’t actually do something of achieve what we so dearly want. Negativity is so much easier to dish out than positivity, but it is so much “harder” on our minds and bodies over time. Once we start with the negativity, it just places us further and further out into a vast and endless ocean of doubt. We’ll keep trying to stay afloat, bu there’s nothing there to hold onto, to give ourselves some relief from the tempest we’ve created. Eventually we’ll become so weak and exhausted that we’ll end up drowning. The endless ocean of doubt we got ourselves so deep into will come out the victor and swallow you up along with those dreams you were making excuses about.
Unless that is, we’re able to channel our positive and self-lifting mindset. Then we may be able to gather enough strength to swim over to that buoy in the distance. Our lifesaver. The positive rock that allows us to achieve what we want. It’s there, it’s not a mirage. We just have to push a bit more to defeat the negativity and allow our positivity, confidence, and bravery to win and drive us forward.
Once we have that forward motion in place, we will see just how strong we are. We can save ourselves. We can rest and breathe instead of letting our self-doubt drown us. Then we’ll be able to gather all our strength, make a plan, and swim to shore. We’ll be able to achieve what we want because we stopped doubting ourselves. We stopped being afraid of our own positivity and confidence.
Nothing was stopping us in the first place but ourselves and our own thoughts. We let our negative thinking muddle our ability to see that we have the strength to achieve the seemingly impossible. Was it hard work? Yes. Did it take a lot of strength? Hell yea! But were we able to do it? Sure we were!
When we finally reach the shore and achieve that goal, we see how silly all that negative thinking was. It was a waste of time and just made us more energy depleted than was necessary. We squandered precious moments of life we will never be able to get back. We could have achieved what we wanted so much sooner and been able to enjoy it so much longer. We just had to fully believe in ourselves and our ability to do great things. We had to have confidence, bravery, will, and positivity.
We could have done it all along. YOU can do it right now. Stop with the excuses and negative thinking. No more self-doubt.
What do you want? What do you so dearly want to achieve?
Now say THAT out loud. Then let yourself give voice to the inner confident achiever you truly are. Don’t let the negativity win and drown you. You have so much more within you. So much potential. Just believe that you CAN. Stop making excuses and GO for it. You have the STRENGTH and the WILL.
I know you can do it, but you need to KNOW that you can do it as well.
So tell me:
+ Are you close to drowning in self-doubt?
+ What will you achieve with your positivity?
