So many of us are stuck in the same place mentally, physically, and professionally because we have convinced ourselves that certain things are not attainable. We won’t go to the car lot and check out the latest vehicle because it’s out of our price range. We fail to apply for the promotion because we are not ready for the challenge yet. We overlook the guy in the three-piece suit who owns the business because we feel like he is out of our league. Well, let me tell you something! You will never get that new car if you could never see yourself driving it. You will never get that promotion if you are afraid of the challenge that comes with it. You will never catch the eye of the business owner if you feel that you are beneath him. As long as you think small then you will continue to play small. I want everything that God has for me and then some. You should always believe that what you have to offer is valuable. Everyone at the top started somewhere below where they are now. There are successful careers and marriages that were built on struggle alone. What we see on the surface does not show the steps that were taken to get there. You could be sitting at the table with millionaires and not know their struggles to maintain what they have. You don’t know whether or not they sleep at night or stay awake wondering if they might lose it all. We all think that we want to walk in another person’s shoes, until we learn about the strength and tenacity that it took to get those shoes. You don’t know how many doors were slammed in someone’s face before they finally got the job. You don’t know how many times their car broke down on the side of the road before they were able to afford a new one. What about all the failed marriages before they finally met the right person and was able to make it last. We really don’t know what it takes to be another person. All we know is what it takes to be ourselves, and most of the time we limit that because we are afraid to test drive outside our price range!
