"There is but one cause of human failure.
And that is man's lack of faith in his true Self."
We so often sell ourselves short. We believe that what needs to be done is beyond our abilities. We allow past experiences to mold our beliefs and keep us from stepping up to tackle challenges again. If we really believed in our true Self, what could be possible? Your true Self is all the potential you hold inside you, even though you haven't realized it yet. It is the dreams you dream; the hopes you have, and the desire to be more than you express in your every day life. We block ourselves from believing in our true Self by hanging on to beliefs that might have once been true but really no longer serve us. Beliefs like "I'm not good enough," or "I don't deserve," or "I don't know enough." If you can begin to allow your true Self to shine through, you can achieve anything. Don't you owe that to yourself--and to others?
This week: Notice when you block yourself with mindset limitations. What really stands in the way of your success? If you are finding excuses in the economy, or some limitation you think you have, be honest with yourself. Ask yourself: "How am I blocking my true Self?" Be honest about who your true Self really is, what he/she is really capable of. Now think of one SMALL thing you can do to allow yourself to express your true Self. Do that one thing this week. Notice what happens to your faith in yourself.
