The main reason why people are unable to achieve so many impossible things in their life is because they deem it impossible. Aside from giving it a label, many people limit themselves by doing involuntary responses to challenging or stressful situations, like the following.
1. I can’t do it
Once people say this, they satisfy their egos that there is a limit to the things they do. Saying this phrase locks the person into thinking that they really cannot do it without even trying. Remember, experience is the only way to know whether or not they can or cannot do it.
2. There’s no other option
When you say that there’s no other option, a person fails to open their minds to the other possibilities in front of them. When one says there’s no other option, they fail to give themselves time to think about other solutions. When one thinks outside the box, there will always be another, more feasible solution.
3. Good thing it doesn’t happen to me
It’s natural for people to avoid pain, however, by avoiding pain, they fail to give themselves the opportunity to learn more and grow. People who estimate how much losses they get never factor in the non-material gains they could get from a situation. They also forget that to appreciate good things, one must go through bad experiences first.
