Throughout my life I’ve been surrounded by encouragers and discouragers. Sometimes we aren’t conscious of which ones we are listening to – especially if the biggest discourager is yourself.
Fortunately, I’ve had more encouragers than haters, but for years the critic in me refused to accept their love and support.
My utter lack of positive self talk led me to believe that I didn’t have worth – that I was just basically draining every one around me and wasting their time. I started losing consciousness in my life and my inner critic sabotaged me whenever I was reaching towards success.
Then I stopped listening. A question popped into my head –
Why not me?
Now, I strive towards clear objectives and goals every day, and I get to be proud of who I’ve become.
What’s holding you back? What’s stopping you from coming up with the next big thing or from changing the world, even if it’s just in your immediate sphere?
Just start asking, Why not me?
I promise it will change you forever.
