“I’m not very good with computers.”
“I don’t have much energy.”
How easily do such pronouncements roll off your tongue, and how often?
The more you repeat them — to yourself and others — the more you believe them. Such things become self-fulfilling prophesies.
But the whole concept of “I’m this” or “I’m that” is flawed. Every “I’m” is a leftover from the past. You can change.
There is no reason in the world to continue to see yourself as lazy, or irresponsible, immature, or anything.
They are not who you are, they are simply behaviors that you choose to participate in.
You’re not locked in to any particular behavior pattern. Who are you? You are whoever and whatever you choose to be. Jump out of your self imposed box. There’s a whole, wonderful world that exists beyond your comfortable excuses. Cast off your tired, old assumptions and embrace a universe full of great possibilities.
