GYEB – 8) I Just Don’t Have What It Takes

This is the ultimate cop out. You’re basically saying that if you’re faced with a challenge, you just don’t have what it takes. It’s like you’re playing a video game and you just reach for a power button and you shut down the box that you’re using. That doesn’t make any sense when you’re playing video games and it definitely doesn’t make sense when you trying to live your life.
Look at what you’re doing. Look at what you’re capabilities are. Understand that these are works in progress. Sure you may not have the skill set right now to achieve great success but that doesn’t prevent you from getting the right skill set in the future. It doesn’t prevent you from taking action or trying.

When you say to yourself that you just don’t have what it takes, what you’re doing is you’re freezing your potential to what you have now. You’re basically allowing your limitations to define you, not just at this point in time. Instead, you’re allowing your limitations and inadequacies to define you forever. This is all you are and all you’re capable of becoming.
Is that what you really want for yourself? That’s what you’re really telling yourself when you keep repeating the phrase, “I just don’t have what it takes.”

Do you think people who achieve great success in life started out that way? Do you think they were born that way? Of course not. In fact, in many cases they had far more disadvantages than you. What changed? Well, they decided to change. They decided to go for it. They decided to make the right
sacrifices and to take on the right challenges. That’s how they ended up on top. And guess what? You can do the same.
