If you’re going to doubt something, doubt your own limits. Don Ward
I think one of the most important lessons I have ever learned is that when you really want something you’ve got to continue pushing and pushing because success is often right around the corner – even if you have doubts and don’t see tangible signs that it’s coming.
It’s easy to fall into the trap of feeling that what you want is just so far off and you can end up getting discouraged. That’s why I am a huge believer in using my RESET button and reminding myself of the right perspective anytime I am working to accomplish anything.
Because, let’s be real, the fears and the doubts of the Chief Negativity Officer in your mind are always ready and willing to take over if you let them. I can remember so many times my Chief Negativity Officer tried to take over and convince me of things -
You’re going to put in all this work and not get into law school.
You’re going to fail the bar and everyone will know that you failed.
You can’t just quit your job and do what you really want. You’ve got bills, responsibilities and what if you don’t succeed?
There were so many times throughout my life that my Chief Negativity Officer literally had me totally freaked out.
But, not anymore, because I have seen it’s pattern and I know it is trying to do whatever it can to trigger fears and doubts. It’s just trying to keep me trapped and feeling small.
But, I can choose to hit my RESET button and instead remind myself of the truth.
In fact, in the course I am so excited to share with you early next year, I show exactly how to use the RESET button to move up the Possibility Spiral and accomplish those things that are so important to you.
I have used my RESET button to “get my mind right” time and time again to accomplish the things I wanted and one way I’ve done that is by being able to call up certain truths and keep them top of mind.
The Possibility of Today
If you don’t already have a list of quotes or truths that allows you to hit your RESET button, take some time TODAY, grab a piece of paper, at the top of the page write “RESET” and list out at least 5 good truths or quotes (you can also use the list I shared below).
You’ve got to have a list because you want to be prepared in advance if your Chief Negativity Officer tries to creep up. The great thing is that you absolutely can stop the Chief Negativity Officer from “doing what it does” each and every time by reminding yourself of the truth.
