You probably have a routine of affirmations and you say them faithfully. You’ve de-cluttered your environs, including your mind. You have the education, the skills, a well thought-out plan as well as back-up plans. You probably have a network of people and resources to turn to when, inevitably, the going gets tough. Yet, you still can’t seem to press the “start” button–or your motor quickly comes to a sputtering halt.
What’s going on?
It very well could be that you need to let go of some outdated notions you have about yourself. Subconsciously (or consciously) you may be hearing someone from your past telling you that you don’t have what it takes to make anything of yourself. It could be that you view yourself as too old or too young, not the right gender or race, or some other thing. Or you have the crazy idea that other people are lucky and destined to achieve success whereas you simply are not.
Let me tell you that success is no respecter of persons meaning that it doesn’t matter what you have or don’t have, where you grew up, who your family is; how old, young, short, tall, fat, skinny, you are or anything else, for that matter. All it takes to be successful is to consistently and persistently take the steps needed toward your goals and dreams and keep doing this for as long as it takes. So what if it takes you your whole life to achieve your dreams and goals? Can you think of any more exciting or noble thing to dedicate your life to?
So, release and let go of the unhelpful notions about yourself that you may be harboring in your psyche. Whether they come from anyone else or if it’s something you came up with on your own, let it go!
Even if it’s an authority who says that it can’t be done, it still doesn’t matter. They don’t know everything there is to know and you may have a shade different take on something that’ll make all the difference.

For your homework today, search the Internet for sources listing other inventions and creations that experts laughed at.

Feel yourself letting go of and releasing all those outdated notions you have of yourself and know that with consistently taking steps, eventually you will reach your dreams and goals.
