You have to believe. Otherwise, it will never happen
- Neil Gaiman.
It must have been a couple of years ago when I first had this ''absurd'' thought.
I want to write a Book.
Then one day, it came to me… in the shower. Funny how great ideas and thoughts come to us in the shower, isn’t it? I'm clear now I'm writing this book for two people...
Is this sounding familiar? I thought so.
The unchallenged whispers become our truths.
Here are 3 Ideas for Challenging your whispers:
The 40% Rule.
The US Navy Seals have an interesting rule.
When your mind tells you that you can't go on, in truth, you're only at about 40% capacity.
As a runner, this is certainly true for me.
I've run greater distances than my mind convinced me I could.
Just think of times in your life when you pushed through, challenged your whispers, to discover more was possible.
Use the 40% rule in your life to remind you that your whispers are not always accurate predictors of your potential.
Ask yourself this question.
If it was impossible to ever experience this limiting thought (whisper) again, how would I live?
Without our limiting thoughts, we'd behave differently.
What if the only thing holding us back from achieving our goals was our thinking?
When you notice a whisper, ask yourself this question and remind yourself that action is more effective than thought at discovering what is possible.
Quite simply, take action!
Don't allow limiting thoughts and feelings to determine your future.
We can't action despite feeling ready. Despite feeling motivated. Despite feeling unconfident.
Get started. Take action towards your goals, even if it's only a small step each day.
