Many of us have dreams, but don’t start them because we don’t think we can succeed.

We stop short of our dreams as long as believe trying is a waste of time.

Fear, worry, and rumination play a part is this dilemma but they are not the real problem.

The real problem is believing that we are helpless in changing our trajectory.

The fearful part of our brain, tries to save us from the emotional pain of possible failure by letting some questionably absolute beliefs get in the way of giving ourselves the chance to actually bump against failure.

We pull the shoot by rationalizing our way out of it.

What we believe, we become, so by revisiting some of our closely held beliefs, it follows that we can change our trajectories.

Sure, there are real limitations in life and things out of our control.

But what is in our control, is our thoughts (through stories) and our emotions (through responses).

If my mind can conceive it, and my heart can believe it – then I can achieve it. ― Muhammad Ali

So by taking a moment to check in on them daily ensures that we are not getting in our own way of realizing our potential.

We become what we believe, so believe in yourself.
