Building Walls and Knocking Them Down


I have the biggest problem with creating walls for myself. I will find every excuse on why I shouldn’t do something or why I can’t . I hate that word. Can’t. If someone else were to say it to me I would laugh in their face and do anything and everything in my power to prove them wrong. So why when I tell myself I can’t do something, I take it as an ultimatum?

Breaking down walls, especially ones you put up yourself, can be exceeding difficult. However, it is entirely possible.

Here are three major things that you can do:

First off, rid your thoughts of the word can’t.

There is nothing that you “can’t” do. Okay that is a total lie. There are some things that we, as humans, are physically unable to do, but you know what I mean. With a little effort, you can do anything you put your mind to. You just have to ignore the little voice in your head that is telling you that you are incapable of doing something and go for it!

Second, be open to new experiences!

One of my biggest barriers is I fear change. However, there is a quote that I have been trying to live by lately that states “the only thing constant in life is change”. By being open to trying new things, you knock down walls that you previously built up.

Third and Finally, stop making excuses.

Everyone has a habit of finding reasons to avoid doing things that they want to do. Whether it is being busy or not having the proper resources, these excuses are just another wall that you are building in the way of your true happiness.

With a little bit of effort, you can stop confining yourself to a life that you aren’t happy living.

So that’s a little bit of Monday motivation for you (or general motivation if you are reading this on any other day of the week). Hope you have an awesome day!
