Ever have those days when you feel unstoppable? It seems like I used to have them more often. I’m not sure if that’s because I’m less in touch with my feelings, or because I’m just more stoppable now.
Feelings are funny. It’s amazing how that feeling of being unstoppable can lead to great things. As my grandpa liked to say, “Never underestimate the power of a confident idiot”.
Ok… my grandpa actually never said that. But I think when I’m a grandpa, I probably will.
In all seriousness, I have seen much more accomplished by people with confidence, who maybe lacked some or even all of the pieces that conventional society thought they should have to be successful, but who believed in themselves and defied all odds.
Me personally…. I’m not always so good at believing in myself. I try, but I’m also what I like to call a “realist” (which is typically what pessimists affectionately refer to themselves as).
If you’re like me, maybe it’s time to start breaking boards more often. That is, training yourself, training your confidence.
Remind yourself of truth.
You really ARE unstoppable.
Well… I mean… a speeding train could stop you… and a police office could stop you… probably a falling piano could stop you…. But you know what I mean…
I don’t mean that you can do EVERYTHING, but I do mean you can do SOMETHING. Something only you can do.
You can be more than you think you can, and it starts with admitting that you truly are a unique human being with a unique purpose on this earth.
Because it’s true.
