So in my previous post I mentioned that you can achieve everything you have ever wanted if you truly believe it is possible.
The idea is that your were created with a specific purpose and potential. All the aspirations you have were predetermined by the almighty universe (Also known as God).
The problem in achieving our fullest potential is when we let doubt creep in and impede our faith.
We are so obsessed with what Others say and think about us in today’s culture. We let magazines, social Media and commercials tell us what we should be, do, feel and look like. This seriously impacts our self image and limits our dreams. “I can’t be a model because my body doesn’t look like hers” or “When I was 5 my siblings always told me I had a terrible singing voice, so I shouldn’t sing in public” we obsess over these ‘false truths‘ And let them limit our goals and dreams.
In addition to these limiting thoughts....
we live in a culture filled with warnings based on worst case scenarios - Buy this car because in the event of a serious crash your family will be ... slightly less harmed potentially... maybe, or ‘caution! The contents of this cup maybe hot and cause burns’ etc.
We are always worrying about ‘what if’ as if we have any control over when an accident may happen and how.
This seems to have lead to a whole generation of anxious people who are afraid to think or move outside the lines for fear of being ousted and judged on social media.
If you want to live your most extraordinary ultimate life - you need to throw what if negatives out and turn them into positive what ifs!
What if I sing in public?
Old thinking : I may suck and be humiliated and everyone will laugh and I will be mortified
Extraordinary thinking: I may discover that I really am a great singer, maybe there is someone in the crowd who will discover me and this will lead to my big break!
Live life expecting the best, not the worst. If you live as though something amazing is about to happen to you, you will be more confident, happier and more likely to attract positive attention and opportunity.
Because seriously so what- you’ll be embarrassed by singing ... what is that REALLY going to hurt? (besides your pride)
So get obsessed with Optimism and positivity.
Your big break or the next love of your life may be literally right around the corner- why not make the best first impression by taking each step with confidence.
