Inspire your Success.
When I was a child, I was paralyzed by fear at the prospect of athletic competition. I was always smaller than the other guys and I doubted my abilities to the point of not wanting to perform at all. I remember the knots in my stomach that would arrive in time for the physical fitness test in gym class. I was tortured by thoughts of failure, certain that I would embarrass myself in front of my classmates with my apparent inability. Sometimes I would get so worked up that I would become physically ill. I literally made myself sick. My mother would try to instill the power of thought/prayer/faith into my head, reminding me that if I thought I could, I would be able to perform at a level that far exceeded my past performance. I wanted to believe that it was true, but continued to reject the possibility of my success. As you might expect, it played itself out in reality. I would indeed perform up to my expectations, in line with my thoughts. I expected that I would not perform well and I succeeded in validating my thoughts.
How do you allow your thoughts to hold yourself back?
Success or sabotage? Are your thoughts enabling self-sabotage or inspiring greater success?
Is this going to be an incredible day? What do you THINK?
