026: The Incredible Power of Believing you Can Improve

It’s not how good you are. It’s how good you want to be


My daughter Elizabeth is learning to talk.

She’s two and a half, so the vast world of words lays wide open before her.

I listen to her every day. Desperately trying to communicate, repeating herself again and again in the (often) forlorn attempt to be understood.

But does she ever give up, throw her hands in the air and declare that it’s all too hard?

Of course not. She just keeps on trying. That’s because, like all toddlers, she has a growth mindset.

She’s open to new possibilities, she won’t give up and she’s never afraid to fail.

We can learn so much from our little ones because it’s not how good you are, it’s how good you want to be.

Elizabeth wants to talk. And talk she will.

What do you want to do?

In this weeks episode of The Friday Café, Michelle Dawson and I talk about the incredible power of believing you can improve.

This weeks challenge:

My challenge for this week is to think about something that you’ve always wanted to do. Something BIG, and then start to reprogram your mind by tell yourself you can do this.

You don’t have to work out the full picture yet, by take one small but essential first step and you’ll soon start to build momentum.

Tell me in the comments. What can you do to be more open to new possibilities? What’s the big thing that you want to accomplish?

Michelle and I are here to spur you on and help you in any way we can.

Hope you enjoy the show.
