What limitations do you put on yourself?
Are you telling yourself you can’t do something?
Is someone else telling you that you can’t do something?
Have you been brought up to think you can’t do something?
Sat here in cost, listening to ‘Zombie’ by Breed 77, and the line that i keep hearing over and over again
‘its in your head, its in your head’
Really, it is!
I’ll share a little something, I truly used to suffer badly with being able to switch off. In fact, when I hurt my back the only time I ever got my brain to ‘shut up’ was heaven because I was checking myself out with Valium every evening to lessen the pain.
(hence the term I came up with ‘Ambivalent’ which I think is kinda cool)
I couldn’t sleep when I was a kid unless I had the TV or radio on quietly as it would distract my mind enough to drift off.
In fact, until my early 30’s I would still have to fall asleep listening to some stand up comedy, podcast or music of simply I would like there and think
Honestly, I truly thought it was going to drive me insane.
But do you know what the most insidious ‘voice’ was?
The thoughts that I would never **something** – key highlights include:
– lose weight
– have money
– get strong
– have a girlfriend
– die alone
– fail my family
^^^ I lost track of the little bastards to be honest, but imagine that. Every day, your own bloody brain telling you than you weren’t good enough.
Grey little twat.
(why I poisoned him with the detailed potatoes for so long ha)
But ultimately we have a choice to make:
- To listen to the voices in our (not like that, I’m nuts but not ‘proper’ – well yet anyways lol), the voices from others, from society, our fronds, our family, our partners our colleaguesor
- We have a choice NOT to listen
As, the large gentleman on this picture proclaims:
Some of the most successful people I have met of course worked hard, leveled up their skills, put the hours in – but equally there is something that I wish, i truly wish I had know so many years ago:
‘It truly is your choice’
You don’t have to ask for anyone’s permission to do anything when you are a ‘grown up’
Go take it!
Now I’m NOT saying fuck someone over – but I’m trying to say if there is something you want to do, someone you want to pitch to, someone you want to ask out, something you want to launch?
Beast, or bitch
