How to stop limiting yourself....

Taken from adapted by Carrie Pink

There are many things that people do everyday that keep them from achieving their dreams. They may seem small, but when added up over the course of a day they can affect your entire lifetime.

Many of the things limiting us in life are self inflicted and there are ways to stop this behavior.

• Stop negative self talk. If you are constantly putting yourself down or telling yourself that you are not good enough then you will never be..... you need to stop this behavior. You should be your own best friend and cheerleader. Replace that negative talk with positive mantras. Tell yourself each and every morning how strong and capable you really are. Anytime you start to feel your resolve weaken, repeat your mantra to yourself over and over until you believe it.

• Make time for the things that are important to you. ONLY YOU can schedule the activities that will get you to your goals. If everyday you have a new excuse as to why you don't have the time to reach your goals, then guess what, you will never have time, you have to make time.... Make your goals just as high of a priority as a doctors appointment. Put them in your weekly schedule and hold yourself accountable for working on your goals during those times.

• If you do not have a weekly schedule, it may be time to start keeping one. Scheduling your time one day at a time is too short sided and scheduling a month in advance is too inflexible. This makes weekly scheduling ideal. Use different color highlighters for different types of activities. Use one color for work, one color for family time, another for goal time.

• Decide what is really important. There may be times when you have to say no, to hanging out to your friends, realize that the same time you are spending with them, you could be spending it on achieving your goals...what is more important?

At the end of the day it's all about decisions.. you have the right to choose to be successful or the right to choose to not be..
