Two weeks ago I did something I thought I couldn’t do.

Two weeks ago I did something I thought I shouldn’t do.

Two weeks ago I did something I thought was too silly for words.

Two weeks ago I did something I really wanted to do, yet had tried to talk myself out of for weeks.

I went to Miami.

All by myself.

Traveling solo internationally for the very first time.

To take a 3 days mastermind training kinda thing.

In-between flashes of eagerly looking forward to it, my mind went crazy.

Coming up with all kinds of crappy thoughts.

I would get lost in London Heathrow airport.

I would wait for my plane at the wrong gate.

I would miss my connecting flight to Miami.

I would get lost in Miami.

The mastermind would not be worth it.

I would be spending all my time and energy on a silly stupid thing.

Everybody would think I’d gone crazy.

My mind just had one word for it.  In big capitals.  With an exclamation point.

 

SILLY!

.

Turns out I can travel internationally.  On my own.

Turns out I learned a lot.  About myself.

That I can do the thing I think I cannot do.

That I can feel the fear and do it anyway.

That I can do so much more than I give myself credit for.

That I can do so much more than I think myself capable of.

That the “silly” thing just has to be valuable and inspiring to me, not to anybody else.

That I decide whether the “silly” thing is worth doing or not.

And if it’s a yes, that doing that “silly” thing I think I can or should not do, is the most powerful investment I can make in myself.

What do you think you can or should not do even though you are really wanting to do it?

What do you think is too silly to even give it a go?

Explore what pulls you in.

Explore what “silly” thoughts pull you out again.

Trade those “silly” disempowering thoughts for empowering ones.

And then – if you really wanna do the thing you think you can or should not do – give it a go.

Do the thing you think you can not do.

And you’ll be astounded.

By you.

And what you’re truly capable of.
