My wife will not buy or wear denim jeans that have back pockets, regardless of how other people say she looks.
My 90-year-old mother refuses to consider moving to a beautiful new apartment with assisted living options because she equates that with being “institutionalized.”
I “can’t” do ordinary household plumbing without screwing it up.
We all box ourselves into limited possibilities for our next move, or for necessary actions. We all have said “no”, or “I can’t”, or “I won’t” to choices because of the limitations we have created in our minds, regardless of the real data that proves otherwise. As a result, you and I – anyone, everyone – can be prone to take certain actions because “I had no choice.”
You, I, everyone always has a choice. We just need to see our circumstances in a new way, and allow new assumptions to shape the possibilities we will consider before taking action – or to prevent us from avoiding any action at all.
What have you been avoiding? Are you saying “No way” to something that’s holding you back? Are you refusing to discover or expose your real potential? What are some other possibilities from the choices you are avoiding?
The possibilities are endless. The choice is yours. You may have to learn something new. You may end up proving something really BIG to others and yourself.
