If you’d like to try a quick meditation, check out my first little podcast thingy below. This is on the whole finding your wisdom thing that we talked about yesterday, but it’s still just meditation. Let me know what you think, and whether you’d like more of these.
Think back to the last time you really outdid yourself. Maybe it was at a business meeting, or on a school project. Maybe you whipped up this amazing loaf of banana bread, or crane kicked a bully to win a karate tournament.
I’m serious, think back to instances of yourself surpassing your own expectations, because this proves two things:
- You are capable of great things.
- Your expectations are bullshit.
Riddle me this, Batman: How did you manage to exceed your expectations? Was it dumb, luck, the stars aligning? Waking up on the right side of the bed and having a decent breakfast? No matter how you justify your low expectations, they’ve been wrong in the past, and they’ll be wrong again. Self-limiting thoughts and language are real psychological phenomena, and we’ll talk about them more in the future, but today we’ll skip straight to kicking ass.
