Don’t limit yourself.
The negative self-talk and downplaying your potential might suit you the odd day.
(It really doesn’t!)
But the constant chatter of a weak mind leads to a weak outcome.
Let’s also be real.
You can’t pretend to be Thor or Captain Marvel every day either. But which would you rather be arguing for?
Let the chatter continue. Stopping it abruptly only brings it back with a vengeance.
But don’t validate it.
Don’t judge it. As a neutral ear, hear what is being said. Then put on your superhero mask, and debate the opposing view.
Argue AGAINST your limitations.
You must be your own advocate. The journey you are on needs you to be.
Whatever you argue for becomes yours. It becomes you. That’s an empowering and frightening thought at the same time.
It wields so much power. Use it to unleash your true potential.
The next moment you get into a negative self-chatter, don’t indulge it.
Observe it. Don’t validate it.
Just because something is being said doesn’t make it true.
Argue against the limitations and for your potential. Become your own superhero and advocate.
