Go for it!
As soon as the going gets rough, the vast majority of people RETURN TO THEIR FAMILIAR RESTRICTIONS!
Consider a time when you were a small child and experienced fear. What did you tend to do? If you were like the majority of children, you went in search of your mother or some other type of protection. This is a pattern that is difficult to break. The fact is that when you are terrified or anxious today, you will most likely still seek comfort and withdraw to a place where you feel safe and comfortable. Do you have a tendency to stick with what you know, what is safe, and what is simple, even though you know that something better is on the horizon?
However, if we don’t actively endeavor to “think outside the box,” we are more likely to remain in the same place and follow the same behaviors we have always followed, no matter how self-defeating those patterns may be. When a fresh chance presents itself, we may feel that it is too risky to pursue and opt not to even try. Alternatively, we may decide to go for it, encounter some difficulties, and quit up before we have made any significant progress. What is it that is now holding you back and that you are too terrified to address? Here are a few tips to assist you in moving beyond the comforts of your ordinary life that are sapping your potential.
Be willing to accept failure as a part of the learning process
Successful people make mistakes from time to time. It is via this process that we learn and grow. If someone claims that they haven’t failed, it’s likely that they aren’t putting up enough effort to succeed. There’s nothing fundamentally wrong with failing, and in fact, it provides us with an opportunity to learn and develop our abilities. Failure is the only way we can genuinely know whether or not we are progressing toward our full potential. If we don’t push ourselves beyond our comfort zones, we will not progress. Anyone can go through life repeating the same thing over and over again, thinking that it will be simple and that they will be safe and comfortable in their decisions and actions. If we want to do anything beyond the usual, we must not be afraid of failing. Even if you place a high value on security, think about how it affects your life and whether it prevents you from pursuing more fulfilling endeavors.
What is your justification?
Excuses are among the most subtle and yet strong forces that exist in the world. You probably aren’t even aware of how much of your reasoning is based on ingrained justifications. Essentially, we create excuses to make ourselves feel better when we aren’t performing to our full potential. During my formative years, for example, I got into a great deal of difficulty. My actions and lack of motivation were mostly justified by this rationale for a lengthy period of time. Until I flipped it around and used it as a source of drive and strength to go over the boundaries I felt I was reaching at times. Be aware of the times when you’re creating excuses and how this can interfere with your sense of purpose and power.
How to tame the horse
This image of a horse and rider is a good metaphor for how our minds keep us trapped in a cycle of self-defeat. After training a horse to follow a specific way, it might be difficult, if not impossible, to dissuade it from following that path.
Our subconscious mind is the horse, and we are frequently the rider who is at the mercy of our subconscious mind. When something new or unexpected occurs, our horse rapidly signals us to the possibility of a dangerous situation developing. The horse makes us feel uneasy and insecure, and we begin to imagine all of the awful things that could happen if something goes wrong.
Our horse helps us to stay focused on how things “should” be and what we are “supposed to” do in our lives. Our horse is not a fan of change, and everything that is different or unfamiliar is viewed as a danger by him. Knowing what is going to happen can assist you in taming your horse by preventing you from reacting to the unreasonable way of perceiving things that your horse promotes right off the bat.
Do not undervalue your own abilities
We all experience some level of constraint at some point in our lives. The constraints we face are sometimes “actual” and we must accept our circumstances, but most of the time, the limitations we experience are self-imposed and are founded on some erroneous idea that we are not good enough or don’t deserve to be successful. Just think about how much you are holding yourself back because of erroneous notions and conditioning that you have received from society and our own culture.
It is a proven fact that the majority of people do not believe God to be one of a kind. Only a small number of people will ever truly put their trust in God in order to achieve their goals. This truth, on the other hand, does not have to prevent us from maximizing our individual potential. The majority of people who consider themselves to be “average” have significantly more potential than they know. It is enough indoctrination to prevent any true breakthroughs from occurring simply because people regard themselves to be “average” in their own eyes.
Take your game to the next level
If you have at least average mental and physical abilities, you will be able to advance to the next level via sheer willpower if you are willing to put up the effort to do so. All that is required is a strong desire to succeed.
Do you have the determination to be successful?
Our emotions and thoughts are intertwined with our ability to act. Our resolve to endure is weakened when we begin to feel discouraged and less than we should be thinking about ourselves. There is no way we can give up at the first indication of opposition. Nothing worthwhile in life is easy to achieve. If this were the case, we would not be experiencing any development. A single man or woman FALLETH seven times yet RISETH back up again… ”
Proverbs 24:16 is a verse that says
Whatever the situation, it’s all too tempting to fall back on the same old path of comfort. It is necessary to break the cycle.
The determination to achieve comes from overcoming the incorrect beliefs and training that you are prone to, as well as pushing past the discomfort that happens when you attempt something new or different.
