“When I let go of what I am, I become what I might be.”
—Lao Tzu, Chinese philosopher
We all want to be ‘right’ – to have the correct answer, to know the truth. We think that will bring us clarity, stability, and peace of mind.
But what if being ‘right’ only serves to put us in a safe and limiting box?
When we define something, we limit it. Perhaps we could instead distinguish ourselves by being open to the possibility of who we could be rather than placing limits on who we are.
How and in what ways can you disengage from self-limiting beliefs?
If you find this difficult, ask a family member or close friend for their perspective.
