We all have our own beliefs about what we are capable of and what is possible, but this is unique to each and every person and it’s important to realize that the things you believe, the concepts and truths you act upon and work towards are yours and yours alone.
Sometimes, the beliefs we set for ourselves can hold us back from reaching our full potential and, although I have understood and known this theory for a while, it was actually brought home to me this week when someone I trusted and admired told me he believed that I was capable of much more than I do. Which did force me to reassess what I believed was possible.
However, this does also work in the reverse, when people who are influential in our young lives teach us their own beliefs, we will take them on a truth and this is where we can live our lives under the shadow of someone else’s limitations.
