Get Out Of Your Way
Updated: Aug 10
Putting yourself out of the way means becoming much acquainted with your innermost world. In this, you discover what you do that makes you suffer so. Choose your thoughts carefully! I had to look over my fears and that awkwardness running beneath the surface of my mind almost nonstop days after I decided to become an entrepreneur. Unbeknownst to me, as quickly as I had decided to take on this amazing adventure, I immediately got in my way. Then I remembered, I must control what is coming into my consciousness. I had to put myself out of the way! Move b!+(h git tha way, git out tha way b!+(h git out tha wayyyy! Love you Ludacris!!
But as I journey, I am discovering that no one but YOU can get YOU to move out of the way. I love what Shad Helmstetter said in his book, What to Say When You Talk to Yourself; “after examining the philosophies, the theories, and the practiced methods of influencing human behavior, I was shocked to learn the simplicity of that one small fact: You will become what you think about most; your success or failure in anything, large or small, will depend on your programming - what you accept from others, and what you say when you talk to yourself. It is no longer a success theory; it is a simple but powerful fact. Neither luck nor desire has the slightest thing to do with it. It makes no difference whether we believe it or not. The brain simply believes what you tell it most. And what you tell it about you, it will create. It has no choice.”
Those who are comfortable taking chances know that the best way to grow is to reach beyond their grasp. Their sense of direction comes from the heart. They don’t shy away from surprise; they might even seek it out. And they seldom die with regrets. In the end we regret not what we have done but what we have not done.”
What’s in your way? It's not the mountains we conquer, but ourselves. Well said Mr. Hillary!
If something is "in your way" it stops you from moving about the earth.
Is it you...?
