“It’s not who I am”. That is probably the sharpest sword you could have placed right in the middle of your chest. Those five words are probably the strongest five bullets you’ve shot against your own self. And the worst part? That wasn’t even your sword…that wasn’t even your gun…
That sentence is a weapon placed into our hands by the people who said that same sentence to themselves before us. You have a dream, right? And these people around you, they told you: “You can’t do that. You’re not smart enough for that, you can’t possibly achieve something so amazing. You’re just…you”. And that scarred us. That made us say: But, that’s not who I am…that dream, the dream that I really really want…it’s not who I am.” And that’s where we’ve gone wrong, we’ve listened to the ones who’ve already made that mistake when they were younger. From now on, no matter what anyone says, I want you to say “this IS who I am. This IS what I want and how I want to live. Don’t let someone who hasn’t spent a day in your mind tell you-you can’t do something. You owe it to yourself, so go…go do it.
? Make “Shift” Happen ?
