Remember the dreams you had when you were young? You probably thought there were no limits to what you could accomplish. When you got older and went to school, you hit the brick wall of reality, and you felt like you could never accomplish those dreams you had as a kid. You go to work every day and you accept the idea of living an average life. Someone tells you that it’s safer to stay where you are, living paycheck-to-paycheck, and forget about your dreams. You’ve convinced yourself that your dreams are out of your reach, but have you ever even tried to reach out and grab them? The same negative thinking that keeps you in that day-to-day grind is what keeps you from believing you can do anything else. The truth is, the only thing that is keeping you in the trap of the average life is willpower. Is it going to be hard to start living the life you want to live? Maybe, but will it be more painful then committing to average life? Whatever your age and whatever you are doing with your life right now, the only thing that keeps you stuck in a life you don’t love is your own belief in yourself. Allow yourself to let go of the fears and limits that are holding you down, and start believing again!
