Accepting Self-Limiting Beliefs... Must We? I've always wanted to play the piano. I even bought a 100 year old piano and took lessons in my 20's. Then, life happened and the dream slowly faded.
I've always loved to dance and I especially love salsa music. Every evening, I entertain myself by dancing around my house to some cool tunes from my iPod. I've thought about teaching a class and inspiring others to shake some bootie, but the thought of organizing it overwhelms me, given my current business and civic responsibilities.
I've never drank... not for any particular reason, other than I don't really fancy the taste of alcohol (or perhaps I've never found my drink of choice). However, I've thought about visiting some local vineyards and experimenting a little. I just need a kick in the butt to motivate me to do it.
I recently bought a Quickbooks program and decided I was going to do my own payroll. The program has sat in the box on my desk for weeks and is yet to be loaded on my computer.
I love to learn new things, but the reality is, they take time. I know I possess a wide array of talents and I can do anything I set my mind to... but is it really feasible to think we can accomplish everything that occupies our brain? I hate to say no to some of my dreams, because in some small sort of way, it's like accepting defeat. May it never be!
Perhaps it's just a case of poor planning and lack of organization. Just the sound of those words make me cringe! I suppose I see myself more as a creator, inventor and dreamer. Execution is clearly my downfall. And perhaps my Libran tendency is to over-analyze and procrastinate in the quest for balance. Whatever the case, I won't allow myself to accept the self-limiting beliefs that sometimes spin in my head.
