Today, we have so much say over our lives but even so, we don’t always appreciate or even realise the options that are open to us. It can sometimes feel really hard to keep going towards a goal that seems to be always just out of our reach. Many of us look around at other people and think they have skills and talents or even luck that we don’t have. We sometimes tell ourselves that we don’t have the advantages that others have or that somehow, whatever we do, we can’t quite achieve what we want to achieve.
What happened the last time your friend, your child or even a work colleague told you that they had an ambition or a dream that they really wanted to achieve, did you say ‘oh don’t be silly……you can’t do that’ or ‘who do you think you are….that’s impossible for you”? I am prepared to bet that you didn’t react like that and that you would never treat anyone that way. Why then do you think that it’s ok to treat yourself like that? Wouldn’t it be great to give yourself the same care and kindness that you routinely give to other people?
Would you be surprised if I told you that whatever you believe, whatever you tell yourself is going to be true for you? To paraphrase Henry Ford, ‘if you think you can or you think you can’t…you’ll be right!” How would it be if you just decided, today, that you can do exactly what you want to do in your life and you simply believed that you already have all the resources you need to get that job, write that book, run that race or whatever it is that you have always dreamed of?
Don't agonise, orrganise!
