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.
- 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?”
