“If you argue for your limitations, you get to keep them.”
~ Jim Kwik
“I’m not a good _______________ ” (fill in the blank)

Today’s Mind-Bullet Monday examines the complex construct of our self concept: Did you know that consciously (mostly unconsciously) we allow the beliefs we’ve constructed about ourselves to define (and limit) ourselves?
We’ve all constructed a narrative about who we are as people. This set of beliefs — structure — becomes an intrinsic part of our identity.
The MOST IMPORTANT idea though is; because we’ve created our self-concept it is malleable, not fixed. Therefore, you have the power at anytime to redefine your limiting self concepts!
Think about it this way, who constructed the idea that you’re, say, not a good reader?
After all, reading is a skill that you can get better over time!
The key idea is this, figure out where you’ve constructed barriers within your self concept — and begin to tear them down, turning each perceived weakness into a strength.
How, you ask? Listen in for MG’s tips on writing your new story by crafting the habits that support a new image.
