Own your life

Note to self: When you allow yourself to be defined by the scepticism of others, you impose their limitations on yourself.

Recognising that all mental and emotional limitations are self-imposed is critical to growth.

These limitations are revealed in how we believe we are compelled to respond to someone or some experience.

It is revealed in how we believe in our ability to do the extraordinary, while our support structure, or our tribe convinces us that we’re supposed to focus on responsibility only.

It is revealed when we look for validation and approval for our aspirations or ambitions, before we commit ourselves wholeheartedly towards its pursuit.

The greatness that exists in all of us is often snuffed out by our need to be accepted before we pursuit that which will set us apart.

Whose permission are you waiting for before you unleash your passion, or pursue your dream?

Tomorrow is not guaranteed, but death bed regrets are…if you don’t live a life that duly honours the struggles of your life.

Own your life. Before someone else does.
