Sometimes you can be your own worst enemy when it comes to taking on challenges to foster growth:
You might tell yourself that you’re not ready.
You might tell yourself that you’re not capable.
You might tell yourself that now isn’t a good time.
You might consider the challenge in front of you a foregone conclusion & tell yourself that it’s simply impossible.
The worst part? The more you say these things, the easier they are to believe.
But here’s the truth:
Whatever project, responsibility, or task that is intimidates you…
Maybe you can do it.
Maybe you can’t.
But you the only way to be sure is to try in earnest.
Before you resign yourself to not being ready, try.
Before you resign yourself to not being capable, try.
Before having the audacity to declare that something is impossible, try.
Resolve to try before declaring anything.
It’s that simple and that hard.
You will find that following this principle will help you get out from under the self limiting beliefs that perhaps you never realized you had.
