There’s a decades-old saying in the world of communications (where I started my career) that “the medium is the message.” In other words, what’s been said is only as effective as the source is captivating. What and how you see affect what you hear, and what you believe.
When it comes to the messages you’re sending yourself, how’s your delivery? Convincing? Or half-hearted? A little of both sometimes?
Try talking to yourself with the same level of clarity and purpose that you’d talk to a friend who was struggling through a tough patch, trying to make a dream a reality. You know they can do it. You know that you can, too.
And so you will.
