You can’t do it
I was recently talking with a prospective client – who is an incredibly successful professional – and they told me the saddest story about a meeting they once had with their boss.
In this meeting, they shared with their leader an aspiration to advance to a specific role in their organization, a revelation that was met with a profoundly inspirational response: “oh, you won’t be able to do that.”
This week you are going to have opportunities to reinforce POSSIBILITY for those around you. You are also going to have opportunities to reinforce FEAR and INSECURITY. Do everyone around you a huge favor and choose to reinforce possibility. Doing so might even help you recognize your own possibilities.
PS: That prospective client was reaching out to me because they are literally on the cusp of taking on the role they dreamed of those years ago, and their aspirations have grown considerably along the way.
