Don’t Stop Yourself

You cannot achieve greatness if you think you can’t.

There are a lot of factors that stop us from our work. The world loves to hand us obstacles.  In fact, that is its job, to give us distractions.

Sometimes I like to think of it as a vetting process.

Anywho –  as much as we are worried about the world, the people, what our boss thinks, how the president will react, etc. the biggest impediment to our greatness is often ourselves.

We believe:

  • Things can’t get done
  • The effort isn’t worth it.
  • The world will stop us.

If we believe our self-destructive talk, then the vetting doesn’t even have to happen. We’ve stopped ourselves.

Ask yourself – “are you stopping you?”
