“Fear kills more dreams than failure ever will.”– Suzy Kassem
In today’s prompt from Five Minutes in the Morning, we’re invited to look at the things we think we’ll never do and the reasons why.
Divide a piece of paper into two columns. Set your timer for five minutes. In the first column, make a list of all the things you think you could never do. In the other, write down the reasons why you think that is so.
Return to this regularly and examine your justifications. Are they legitimate or are there fear-based self-limiting excuses?
I struggled with this prompt because it inherently focuses on lack. I understand these are limiting beliefs. I know I can do all the things I wrote, but right now all I want to do is live each day with love and light.
I know some days will be more challenging, but I don’t doubt it will happen.
Anyway, here’s what I wrote:
Publish a book
Live in a downtown area
Travel the world
Find my purpose
Love anyone other than myself
Never be able to invest
Make money doing what I love
Lack of motivation
Lack of money
Lack of means
Lack of interest
Also lack of interest
Also lack of money
Unwillingness to tie a monetary value to creation
