I now carry this fear story around that I will quit one subject in.
These are some of the reasons I am dragging my heels. These are some of the stories I am carrying around with me…
You’re not smart, you fail at subjects, you’re a quitter – you’ll give up.
That was until my girlfriend called me out on my fears. In her words “ So Angela you’re not signing up to do this degree because of times you failed and gave up in the past OVER 25 years ago?” – good point. “You’re completely different now” – second good point.
These are stories from my past holding me back, however, they can also be flipped on their head and turned into learning opportunities, stories that empower me and motivate me into action. You can do the same for you stories that are keeping you paralysed.
