My classmate Dr. Mumtaj shared this story with me and I have modified it to suit my learning from it.
Once a man goes to a village and challenges the villagers to climb the tallest wall. All the villagers say that it’s impossible. A few of them come forward to try while the others behind them keep discussing why it’s impossible to climb it. All those who tried climbing the wall failed. One young man steps forward, tries a few times and succeeds in the end. The man who challenged the villagers asks the young man “How come you could do it while the whole village failed?” An old villager steps forward and says “Because he’s deaf!”
Doesn’t this sound familiar?
We all have beliefs, thoughts, notions that prevent us from reaching our full potential. While the voices that constantly remind us of these limiting beliefs come from outside, the most powerful voice is the one that’s within. We often succumb to it and wonder why we aren’t acheiving things that others are able to.
In my next week’s post, I’ll share a tool that can help you break those barriers. In the meantime, think through and identify your limiting beliefs.
What are your experiences with Limiting Beliefs?
STAY HAPPY AND STAY BLESSED!
