“Your mindset is amazing, but I could never be like that.”
Honey, why do you protect the splinter in your foot?
Doesn’t it hurt you?
Doesn’t it make you sad?
Doesn’t it hold you back?
The splinter is your negative mindset. It’s what’s keeping you from doing everything you’ve ever dreamed of.
It’s stopping you from running, dancing, playing completely uninhibited.
So you have two choices.
You can either:
Protect the splinter. Coddle it. Show it to your friends. Use it to excuse your behavior. Let it damage you and keep you injured, slow, and full of self-doubt. Pity yourself for it indefinitely. STRENGTHEN it by validating its existence day in and day out...
You can choose to take it out.
