You can do more than you think you can.
Have you tried this simple exercise before?
Raise your hand as high as you can. (Go ahead, try it.)
Now raise your hand even higher.
Were you able to raise your hand higher?
Most people find a way to do so, especially if they’re in a group of other people who are all raising their hands even higher.
The fact is, we usually can do more than we initially think we can. We underestimate our abilities, or we overestimate just exactly how much effort we’re really putting into things already.
How can you go a little further today? Do something different, step outside your comfort zone in an area you want more today?
Lately, I have been challenging myself when I workout and I always find I can do a little more even when I think I can’t almost every time.
This same concept applies to any area of life we want to change or improve our results in. I am making a commitment to apply it in at least one other area that I want better results in and I will post on this in future blogs.
How can you challenge yourself today?
