I discovered something today and I want to share it with the rest of this forum.
I consider unicycling a series of challenges. The first challenge may be to sit on the unicycle, the second to ride forward and so on.
Just recently I set myself the challenge of hopping onto a bench.
For many days I tried to jump as high as I could onto my bench but I could not make it. I became more and more frustrated even though I know I am physically able to jump three or four times that height!
I could not reach my goal!
I realised just this morning that whenever I tried to hop onto the bench, I was hopping with reserve. I feared falling and hurting myself and I knew that the higher I hopped, the more danger I put myself in.
I was stopping myself from achieving my goal through fear!
After this revelation I marched down the road and up to the dreaded bench.
Once I understood why I was not achieving my goal I was able to progress. I reasoned with my fear and subdued it.
I truly knew I could make it onto the bench this time and I did! First time! With height to spare!
Why not apply this to every challenge? I’m sure there are many people out there in the same situation I was, perhaps more advanced though ! Try it!
I now know that if I believe that I can do something, I will do it. It is only in disbelief that we fail.
What do you think?
Maybe this is the biggest pile of bull that you have ever heard. Ever. What is your take? Please share your opinions with the forum, that’s how we can help each other to progress.
PS. When I say that through belief we can do anything, (excuse the Disney cliche), I am not saying that I will walk on walls! Remember, you will only believe that you can do something if you know inside that you can!
