Do you hear yourself speaking these types of words?
I WON’T BE ABLE TO…
I DON’T KNOW HOW…
All words with one goal in common. Corralling you, keeping you from your dreams, aspirations, and successes. It’s not the people, where you live and work, or the money you don’t have that keep you from your dreams. It’s really you uttering these little words that limit you from attempting, or actually coming close to accomplishing anything you’ve ever wanted in your life. And, up till now, you’ve proven to yourself that you’ve not been able to achieve your desired goals.
I have a friend who has her horses confined in an area with a single rope hanging horizontally around the perimeter of the area they live. That’s it…one little rope.
Growing up, we had horses too, although we kept ours in a pasture with “real” fence consisting of four rows of barbed wire. We needed it. Our horses were constantly getting out. Not because they didn’t have a big enough area. They did. It was because it only took one time for them to realize they could get out. After that, since they knew they could get out, they did.
I asked my friend why her horses stayed in the pasture with just that little rope. Her reply was that they viewed it as a restriction staying away from it so she’s never had a problem with them trying to get passed it.
Envision through your minds eye, a horse, a very large, very powerful animal, restricted just by a small rope.
Just one obstacle keeping it from moving to another area where there’s the possibility of more grass, more room to walk around, more fun in a different environment.
Now, imagine what it would be like to take yourself to a new area in your life WITHOUT the restrictions you’ve placed on yourself to get there.
This is, of course, a metaphor to show you how simple it is for us to limit our own ability to achieve what we’d like in life. For me personally, it was several issues. Getting out of a bad marriage. Gaining a better career, living free from illness and depression. A better life in general that was free from sadness, anger, challenges, ill health, and of course, the holy Grail of thought that’s always keeping us confined….having little or no money.
Ask yourself TODAY, WHAT IF?
What if you allowed yourself to believe you’d only need to walk right through that fence. Stepping over it if need be. Possibly having to jump over it if that’s what it would take for you to eliminate just one of the challenges you might face while trying to attain your dreams.
If not permanently, at least today, allow yourself to venture away from questioning why, where, when or how you’d be able to do something.
Today, remove those nasty little words we talked about before from your vocabulary. Along with any emotionally charged fear attachment that you feel when you question your aspirations.
Today remove the need to say….
I DON’T KNOW HOW
I WON’T BE ABLE TO
And the biggest one of all, I CAN’T.
Eliminate them, at least give it a good try for today.
Eliminate all words which keep yourself seeing what’s NOT possible in your life, and instead replace them with words that show you how it is POSSIBLE to achieve.
Today, ask yourself WHY NOT!! Why not step over that rope seeking ALL possibilities of ways TO ACHIEVE what could be.
There’s one simple technique you can use to gain what you want in life. And that is, to take the time to write down everything you’d like to have, see, or be in your life. With of course NO restrictions!
Imagine these things without limitations of not having enough money, time, education, movement, or ability.
Do not allow yourself to attach any thoughts to words such as how, where, when or can’t.
Today’s action is about letting yourself dream enormous.
As big as you can handle.
Giving yourself the opportunity to see where life might take you. How it could make you happy if you achieve everything by stepping out of the boundaries of restriction you place by saying these words.
One simple action today can change your tomorrow and beyond.
It only took our horses one time to realize they could achieve freedom. From there they continued the action no matter what they had to do to achieve it or the consequences obtained for doing it. After that there was no stopping them.
Today’s action leads you to achieving what your aspirations are just by giving awareness to what you want.
You’re proving to yourself you want _______ (you fill in the blank).
Each time you allow yourself to think outside that box using words of success and ability you tweak your vision of your dreams to an even bigger style for that day and beyond. Although, it comes about only because you allowed yourself to think outside of what’s keeping you corralled that first time.
Each day, every day, one step at a time….you move your mind from the words I can’t, I don’t know how, I’m afraid, I won’t be able to….. To,
I think I can…
I know I can…
I’m able to because…
I know how….
I now only need to do…
Now is where you insert positive words that work for you to achieve success….
The more you add positive words relating to achievement the more you move forward achieving.
With this simple little action, each day your confidence grows stronger knowing you’ve left behind limiting beliefs, and instead, you’ve chosen to adopt strong conviction that you can indeed achieve your goals by believing someday you’ll have that which you dream only because of positive action attached.
What positive words do you use?? We’d love to hear from you. Comment below. 🙂
