How often have you heard or said any of these lines?
- I'm too busy.
- I'm too old.
- It's too much work.
- It costs too much.
- It's too risky
- I'm too tired.
- It takes too much time.
- It's too confusing.
- It's too pointless
- It's too much to think about.
All of these are basically mental shields. But instead of protecting you from harm, they may prevent you from helping yourself. We all think this way at some point. But if you find yourself thinking this way more often than not, it may be time to unlock your mental block.
Here are some keys I've learned to unlock the block:
- Focus on One and Not Too. Identify one thing you want to do today, or one thing you want to accomplish this week. rather than piling too much on your "to do" list. And make that one thing happen.
If 107-year-young Virginia McLaurin can put on a baseball jersey, smile and shimmy at center field, why aren't you dancing?
You have the power. Sometimes you need to find the key and unlock your mental block.
