Don’t Allow Your Past to Dictate

Don’t Allow Your Past to Dictate

I find that many people have a frame of reference which dictates how capable they believe they are at a particular task, skill, or thing — and in-turn plays a role in what they attempt, which as you can imagine has an effect on what they end up achieving — be it personally or professionally.

You Are Far More Capable Than Any Shortcoming From Your Past

Your frame of reference is often shaped by your past accomplishments, as well as those times where you’ve fallen short of your intended outcome. Whatever may have happened in your past, if it doesn’t serve to make you the person you want to be, you have in you the ability, through action and effort, the opportunity to change it to one that will serve you for the better.

Your frame of reference is important for several reasons — not the least of which is that it determines what you are willing to attempt in the first place, which of course is the starting point of everything with regards to the success process. If you don’t get started you can’t ever hope to succeed at any worthwhile endeavor. No amount of wishing alone will get you there.

Break Through Your Limiting Beliefs…

I love the story of Roger Bannister. The first man to ever run a sub-four-minute mile. For years, many amazing athletes before him tried to break the elusive 4 minute time, but fell short. Interestingly, once he broke the record, before long, other athletes began doing the same, as well as breaking his time record. What had kept all the athletes before Roger from breaking the 4-minute mile? Their own frame of reference that was built around the idea that “it couldn’t be done.”

It took Roger to come along, and by overcoming the barrier, “reframe” the way everyone saw the 4-minute mile, from one that couldn’t be broken, back to one that, like all goals, could be worked at, trained for, and eventually attained.

Commit right here and now to go beyond those who stop just short of wishing for bigger and better results, and those who wake up everyday and set out about doing the daily work necessary to get where they want to go in life.
