Grab a cup of tea and watch the Seven Myths That Keep Us Stuck. We talk about the thoughts that keeps us stuck and what we can do to start moving again.
Aristotle once said, “It is the mark of an educated mind to be able to entertain a thought without accepting it.” Aristotle a Greek philosopher from the 300s BC is basically saying, just because you think it, doesn’t mean you have to believe it.
We limit ourselves through believing our unhelpful and fearful thoughts. We create stories or myths from these thoughts, myths that can keep us stuck and overwhelmed, too afraid to take the next easy, small step. Here are the most common myths I see that keep us stuck:
#1). I just need more “how to” knowledge. If I read another article, I’ll finally be able to start.
#2). I don’t have time! I need a big opening in my schedule to tackle this project.
#3). I need to be harder on myself! If get more serious then I’ll be able to get this thing done.
#4). After I get _______ under control, then I can move on with my life.
#5). I am just not the kind of person who could accomplish________.
#6). It’s not worth doing if I can’t do it perfectly.
#7). Once I get clear on my life’s purpose, then I can move forward.
My personal favorites are #1 & #3...
