A barrier is a structure or object that impedes free movement. It can also be more intangible like an idea or a belief about yourself or something out in the world.
Have you been paying attention to your own self made barriers?
What are the things that stop you in your tracks? The stuff that prevents you from accepting change; moving forward and living your best life? Things like past failures, a bad experience or event, our imaginations, lack of outside support, and fear.
I think it all boils down to your own thought process. Truly, if you don’t believe you should or that you can–you won’t. On the flip side having total faith in yourself means you know that you can and will, find a way to make it happen.
If you think you can do a thing or think you can’t do a thing, you’re right.
Some people try to pin these on the ‘universe’ or family or even bad karma. They take their own personal responsibility for their life out of the equation. They remove themselves from being active participants in their own life.
The thing of it is, stuff happens. You make mistakes, markets crash, tires go flat, snowstorms blow in and so on. You can’t control what happens but you can control how you react to it.
So, how do you view a barrier?
It is something holding you back?
Or something you need to find a way over, under, around or through in order to get to the next level in your life?
Lessons can be learned, opportunities that otherwise would remain hidden discovered..but most of all you might just find out that you are made of some amazingly strong, creative and powerful stuff. Which is good, because you’re gonna need it when you finally discover that next barrier and power through it.
