Hey, Mike Wolf is here from Mike Wolf Mastery. Today I am in Berlin, Germany. I’m at the site of what used to be the Berlin wall, what’s left of it. There are some remnants here that from 1961 to 1989 divided East and West Berlin.
Very interesting because a lot of times people’s freedom is impeded by other human beings, by government bodies, et cetera, and that was the case here. Quite often, we don’t think that our limiting factors to our freedom are right up here. We create them ourselves. We put ourselves in our own prison a lot of times because of numerous reasons.
Sometimes we don’t want to think outside the box; we don’t want to get out of our comfort zone. All we want to do is what’s comfortable. We don’t want to try new things. I think Henry Ford said it best when he said, “If you think you can, or if you think you can’t, you’re right.” It’s one of those statements that just I love, and probably my favorite quote of all time because it’s so true. More often than not, especially as the adults, we make mistakes along the way. Things happen, we fall where we make a mistake, and then afraid to get back up.
We’re afraid to try again. When you look at young kids, when you look at babies, when they learn how to walk, they fall down many times, but they get back up. I’ve never seen a parent say, “I don’t think little Billy’s ever going to– He doesn’t look like he should be a walker, we should just give up on him.” They keep trying, and eventually you do it; finally, you can run. A whole bunch of things happen, but you got to keep getting up and learn how to walk first. A lot of times, we stop ourselves short, and we just keep doing the same thing over and over.
We don’t want to try something different; we don’t want to think bigger than what we’re already thinking. Usually, we hang out with people who tell us we can’t do the things that we think we can do. They squash our dreams because we start to believe them and stop to believe in ourselves. I want to put on a challenge for you to figure out what you want your freedom to look like five years from now, thinking about the things that you either have to put into your life to get there. Maybe you have to learn a new strategy. Maybe you have to try something different.
Also, think about the things that you’ve been doing, and need to be taken out of your life. Maybe watching the news and believing all the stuff you see on TV as being right or maybe hanging out with those friends that are super negative. Perhaps that’s not serving you that well. Maybe you need to change that. I’m a huge fan of freedom. The last thing I want is my freedom to be controlled by other people. I also don’t want to be controlled by my self-limiting beliefs. I’m going to put out a challenge there, start thinking on things that you need to add, things that you can take away to achieve your goals in life.
