“If we did all the things we are capable of, we would literally, astound ourselves.” – Thomas Edison
Sometimes we simply need to get out of our way. We are capable of so much more than we’ll ever know. What stops us – fear and doubt.
We have voices inside our head, trying to keep us safe. But waiting on the other side of that, is the absolute astonishment that Thomas Edison speaks about.
Many have the incorrect pre-disposition that this quote doesn’t apply to them. That they don’t have the natural talent, or the born ability, to reach greatness. But that thought, in and of itself, is the reason why they aren’t yet great. That thought alone will stop what truly creates greatness – passionate, unrelenting, hard work.
This quote applies not to somebody else, but you. Silence the voice that doubts, and put on the championship performance. As simple as that sounds, if we can do it, we’ll find what Edison writes about. We’ll stand in awe of what we are capable of.
