“What’s wrong?” I asked my daughter this morning as I drove her to school.
“I can see something is wrong. Can you tell me what’s bothering you?” I insisted.
“I’m okay dad, I’ll figure this out,” she said as we arrived at school.
We sat there quietly. She then started to open up and expose how DEFEATED she felt arriving at school with incomplete homework.
“Look me in the eyes,” I told her, “I know how hard it is, I struggled badly throughout my academic school life, but after all those painful struggles, I learned a valuable lesson.”
“I can guarantee you that you are capable of MUCH more than you ever give yourself credit for.”
Well, I’m proud to report that I got a BIG hug this morning :))
The power of BELIEF!
Not believing, not trusting in yourself, WILL bring you down every time. Guaranteed!
How can we fight unbelief?
Change your environment! Surround yourselves with “GROWTH mindset” people, not judgmental freaks!
Listen, as an entrepreneur; I know how hard it is to get started. Those first steps can be terrifying. Only the right environment will change that. You need encouragement, perspective, and clarity.
