Ever caught yourself saying words such as “I can’t”, “I won’t”, “I wouldn’t be able to” and the likes? If so, you are not alone. If you haven’t then it is either you are a super awesome person already that you do not have need to read any further or you might just be lying to yourself.
Here is the thing. We have moments where we doubt ourselves. No one is ever always sure of what they are doing. We say things like “I can’t do that” or “I won’t do this” to mask what they essentially are – insecurities. Personal beliefs and principles aside, any other categories open rooms to question if the thing that is stopping you from doing that ‘thing’ is actually because of fear.
And the first step to overcoming fear is to acknowledge it. And then cut it open. Operate on this fear that is holding you back. Once you do that, then look back at those things that you say you can’t or won’t and see if that still applies.
