PERSONAL TIMELINE

There are many times in our lives when we get in our own way

We think about the situation too much, which usually PARALYZES us with inaction

One day, though – for seemingly no reason at all – we take action without thinking about it first, and end up achieving the results/successes that we desire…

Then we mentally reflect on the troubles we were having, without understanding exactly WHY…?

The most relatable example from MY past is when I was going through physical rehabilitation during my recovery from a terrible auto accident in July, 1986…

I suffered 4 major injuries, one of which was a compound fracture to my left femur – part of the repair required a metal rod to be inserted into the center of my femur bone (where the marrow normally resides), where it remained for nearly 3 years…

During a particular rehabilitation exercise, I was supposed to lay on the floor on my right side – then, while keeping both legs straight – I was to raise my left leg towards the ceiling, as high as it would go…

I simply could NOT do it – my brain would not communicate with the nerves or muscles in my legs – my leg simply would not move!
This phenomenon continued for at least 3 – 4 therapy sessions…

Then, during my next therapy session, I laid on the ground and immediately raised my left leg up as easily as if it were a feather…?!
WHY was I having so much difficulty with this exercise in my previous sessions?!

Then it hit me – I was “too much in my head” before – paralyzing myself with ideas of “I CAN’T”…

Another way to explain this concept is by using scenes from the movie: “The Matrix, starring Keanu Reeves – those of you who are familiar with the movie can easily recall just how much mental difficulty that Neo (Keanu) had with personally accepting the belief that he was, indeed, “the One” – the Savior of humanity…

Throughout most of the movie, his own mentally-limiting beliefs of “I CAN’T” and/or “that’s impossible” would not allow him to fully realize his own potential…

But once he broke through his mental barriers, he discovered / realized an Inner Power that was UNDENIABLE…

The same is true of YOU – you are a UNIQUE creation possessing within you skills, talents, and abilities that are meant to be expressed and SHARED…

Throw aside your own limiting beliefs, and share your TRUE SELF with the world!
