Reach your full potential


  1. Reflect on the limitations you may have accepted in the past. Think about the beliefs and ideas you picked up as a child that may have influenced how you see yourself and what you think you're capable of. For example, if someone told you that you couldn't get a good job without a college degree, you might have stopped prioritizing education because you thought it wouldn't lead to success anyway.
  2. Pay attention to your self-talk. Notice the negative or limiting thoughts that pop into your head. Are you engaging in "all-or-nothing" thinking, overgeneralizing, or ignoring the positives? Recognizing these thinking patterns is the first step to changing them and not letting them hold you back.
  3. Keep going even when people don't believe in you. Don't let other people's lack of faith in you discourage you from pursuing your goals. Even if someone says you'll never make it, choose to keep pushing forward. Believe in yourself, and don't let one person's opinion define your potential.
  4. Set boundaries when you receive unhelpful criticism and unwanted advice. Don't waste your time and energy trying to change someone's mind or prove your worth. If someone is criticizing you in a way that isn't helpful, just ignore it. If it's coming from a loved one, express how their criticism makes you feel, acknowledge their perspective, and let them know that you're not interested in engaging in unproductive criticism. Focus on your goals, and don't let negativity distract you.
