Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it.Muhammad Ali
It starts with desire.
A burning, however big or small, to do something.
Shortly after, your brain might come up with all kinds of reasons why you can’t, or how the thing might seem impossible.
Being aware that you actually have an unfulfilled desire is huge.
Don’t discredit that.
You have desire for a reason.
Some part of you believes you can do the thing, or you wouldn’t have a desire to do it.
This is the very first stage of belief.
The only problem is when you stay here. When you stay in believing the thing is impossible.
How do you know if you are believing something is impossible?
One way is when you sabotage yourself.
When you find reasons for why things won’t work or why you can’t.
If you find yourself collecting evidence against yourself, you know you are here.
Another way to know is you are feeling like a martyr.
Believing you’ve tried all the things, done so much work, and have no results.
Maybe you get stuck in confusion.
You just don’t know how! If you had the info you needed, then you would have the results, you think.
The truth is, you won’t know the how until you do.
Unfortunately, that is how it goes. The how comes from doing and learning. You don’t get to know the how ahead of time.
None of those sound like you?
Maybe you are experiencing the fantasy land effect.
You don’t have the results from the goal you set, but everything is wonderful.
That is because you don’t actually believe you can get the goal, so you choose to focus on all the reasons why you don’t want or need it anyways.
Your brain is very good at creating what you are believing.
The good news is that being aware of your limiting beliefs is part of the process.
Noticing that they are there. Seeing how they are showing up.
Find the impossible thought.
Discover what you are believing.
That is the only way to change it.
