At some point, we have all told ourselves the same lie: “I’m not enough.”
Maybe when it comes to your work, you believe you’re not enough. You’re working as hard as you can, but you still get the feeling that your coworkers and boss think less of you. Or maybe, you feel like you’re not enough when it comes to your relationships. You look at your partner and think, “Why on earth would they want to be with someone like me?” Or maybe, you look at yourself in the mirror and you don’t like what you see. You think to yourself, “I wish I was someone else.”
I don’t think there’s a single human being that hasn’t struggled with self-doubt. I know I have. Maybe you were bullied as a kid, and you can’t shake that feeling — that you’re a loser and can’t possibly measure up.
When I was in school, people called me the “dumb kid.” For years, I let that taunt me. But people don’t define your limitations — you define them. If you live your life believing the lie that “you’re not enough,” you’ll end up limiting yourself.
It’s amazing the things we can accomplish when we actually believe we can accomplish them. That change of mindset is crucial when it comes to reaching our full potential. You are enough.
My guest today knows all about self-doubt. He has no limbs — no arms or legs. But he hasn’t let this slow him down.
