Push Yourself. Push!

“If we understood the power of our thoughts, we would guard them more closely. If we understood the power of our words, we would prefer silence to anything negative. In our thoughts and words, we create our weaknesses and strengths. Our limitations begin in our hearts where we can always replace negative with positive.” – Unknown

I watched a game of soccer yesterday. At half time Team A was two goals down. Five minutes later it was down to ten men due to a red card. Some of their fans started leaving the stadium. But ten minutes later the team pulled a goal back, and the game suddenly changed. They ran, dribbled, kicked, jumped and fought. Soon they pulled back another goal and at the nick of time Team A scored the deciding goal.

Are you one of those who think that someone is responsible for their failure in life? I’ll tell you straight away: you (and you alone) either push yourself forward to success or pull yourself back from it – through your mental self-image. That’s one of the most important factors that inhibit your achievements.

You see, until you remove the mental barriers and fear of your inability to succeed, you cannot control your performance because how you think affects how you feel and how you feel affects how you perform.

So, to achieve anything in life, you must first get out of your way, because your thoughts go a long way to impact what you’re doing. If you’re afraid to fail, then there’s the likelihood that you’ll fail.

My friend, the day you start viewing pressure as a challenge to meet rather than a threat to avoid, that day you begin your climb to the top. Your attitude to challenge is the key because you’ll never know your limits until you push yourself to them. Therefore,

Push Yourself. Push!
