To overwhelm yourself, is to be human. I don’t think any of us are free of that. I think it is most often self-created, which is why it’s probably the most intimidating foe. Built with words of false perception, sometimes it feels like reality. Viewing it this way makes it seems much more like a concrete ceiling. That is the secret.
Today, watching the Olympics, Raj Bhavsar of the US gymnastics team had a few things to say about harmonizing your expectations and controlling your outcomes. To paraphrase one statement, would be to realize that we all have things to excel at and often it may not be a gold medal. We build our own ceilings sometimes even looking up in the wrong room.
Do more than look, notice the glass above you and see through it. Do more than reach, break the glass above you. Listen to what is going to help you to break free, not to what is solidifying the ceiling above you.
Today was a rough day for me mentally. I needed a friend. Instead of wallowing, which took a day to get out of, I reached out to one to talk. It can be much harder and I bring this success into the fight.
My dreams are far beyond me. I have to remember that I can always see them.
