Do you really challenge yourself? A dear friend Rico Racosky shares the realization that in life and in your daily routine, you only have two choices at any given time. So if that’s a fact, what is your choice? Do you choose to challenge yourself or stay where you are?
The difficulty with every challenge is that all might word “failure”, we seem to attach this word to almost every challenge we face or adversity we hit. The next big challenge is that you just like everyone has done in the past, you have these self imposed glass ceilings over your head that you believe you can’t break. This my friend, is where you are wrong!
So lets start with that nasty word “failure”. Is there such a thing? If you learn something from a mishap, is it a failure? If you learn how not to do something when you are faced with a challenge, is it a failure? The answer to these two questions is all dependant on your perspective. The story you associate with every challenge, adversity, or obstacle will be the determining factor what you take away from any challenge, adversity, or obstacle you face.
Sir Winston Churchill said it best when he said “all men make mistakes, only wise men learn from them.”
This self imposed glass ceiling you throw up over your head is the second and just as intimidating as the fear of failure or success itself. This glass ceiling tells you that you can’t do this, you are not smart enough to do that, what makes you think you have the credentials to change this r change that?, or that will never work.
This glass ceiling needs to be broken before you will ever have the breakthrough you really want. This ceiling is not easy to shatter, there is no doubt about it. The funny thing is, when you do break it, you will wonder why you hadn’t done it earlier. The freeing feeling is like none that you have felt before. Know that where you presently think you peak out, is only just the beginning. Your potential extends far beyond where you presently think it maxes out.
Stretch and reach for what your heart desires.[bq_left]All men make mistakes, only the wise learn from them.[/bq_left]
