There is a fallacy circulating around for thousands of years. This lie has infested society at every level; with detrimental, debilitating, and numbing effects. This lie is nothing else than the word ‘You Cannot’ you can’t because you are too old, you can’t because you are the wrong race, you can’t because you come from the wrong socio/economic background, you can’t because you are a female. All those ridiculous can’ts are nothing else than taboos that hold you back from becoming the best you can be, from reaching your dreams and living an outstanding life, the life that you deserve.
Absolutely no one can tell you what you can and cannot do. However from an early age we are bombarded by the opinions and fears of others telling us what we should look like, what we should wear, what we should do and also what we can and cannot do. What you must understand is that language is powerful and when people appropriate language and make excellent use of it combining it with psychology, the damage can be of great proportion.
In order to brake away from all this mental barriers and rubbish you need to reconnect with your true self, with that part of you that does not need to be defined or validated from the outside. Learn to dismantle all the negative thoughts and opinions that hold you back and begin with all your heart to believe in yourself, to rebuild yourself from the inside out. Knowledge is powerful. The minute you start learning new skills, new mental habits, you will begin to feel empowered.
