What's On Your Shelf?

Is Your Goal on Hold?
So many of us spend our whole lives not believing in ourselves as much as we should. I have no doubt that many marvelous achievements and accomplishments have been put on hold or hiatus that could have impacted lives, or even the world.

Do you ever wonder why it is so difficult to believe you can do what your passion is calling you to do? Do you wonder why we allow every excuse, even the bad ones, to block us from our destiny? God knows, we should not.

No More Excuses
It's time to clear the shelves of procrastination. It's time to dust off that dream and breathe some life back into it. It's time to stock up on some "cans" of inspiration, "cans" of confidence, "cans" of determination, "cans" of motivation, some "cans" of faith. It's time to fill the shelves of your thinking with so much "CAN do it" that you will never find your mental "cupboard" empty of energy or enthusiasm, only empty of excuses.

Here are a couple of helpful suggestions to help you start stocking up:

Stop the Crazy Self-Talk
1. Don't talk yourself out of it. Does this sound familiar: You're ready. Okay, now you're not. STOP. You can do it. Don't be your own obstacle. Get out of your own way. Dump the negative self-talk. Trash the excuses. Discard that lack of faith. Put a "can" of  "Yes, I can" and "Yes, I will" on the shelf and start making your moves.

Don't Listen to Crazy Opinions
2. Don't let others talk you out of it. So few people will say or show that they believe in us or support us. Instead, they tend to say the darnedest things, like "Why do you think you can do that?" "It's going to be really hard." "You can't do that." Unfortunately, those are just tip-of-the-iceberg comments. You have to ignore them. There is no other way. You can't bow to negativity and naysayers. You may have to clean your shelves of some people. You'll have to put some "cans" of wisdom on the shelf, and tell yourself that just because they don't "get it" is not a reason for you to not go and get what you want.

It's Not a Crazy Idea
3. Don't waste important energy wishing, grueling, hoping or having pity parties. You may have already spend a little too much time doing that. Your time is valuable. Put it into "cans". It's time to get going with your project. It's time to get moving on that idea. It's not crazy. It's time to move into action. It's time to make it happen. It's time to open up every "can" of motivation. It's time to realize that whatever you have hoped for, wished for and wanted can happen. You can do it. YOU CAN.  It's time!
