Several years ago, when I was an interpreter, I went to the city where I grew up to translate into a medical conference. The evening before the parliament, I walked on the street when I jumped into the woman who had been a classroom teacher for two years at the beginning of my teenager. We chatted for a while and got a little on each other. Then she asked me what I was doing in town, as she thought I had moved abroad. I told her I was working as an interpreter and had a conference the next day.
Her entire expression immediately changed and scanned me from head to toe, almost barking: & # 39; Do not lie to me. Only highly intelligent people can be interpreters. You never been good enough. So stop lying! & # 39;
This woman had been teaching a classroom for two years. Can you imagine?
This poor woman had never seen me. I was so different from everything she had ever experienced, that she could only put me in one of the known squares she knew, which had to be where she put "not very intelligent students". No wonder why I was so bored at school! No wonder why I did not have a good grade! I trust her judgment and believed me to be what she showed me of myself. After all, she should know better!
It was not until a few years later that I moved away and had to defend myself at a university in another country. Nobody knew me. No one had any premises, expectations from me. Thus I did what I could, which had to reach excellent levels and continued at university level.
Unfortunately, many classmates and schoolmates did not have similar features. They were convinced that the limited vision of other people was defined who they were. And this limited vision was repeated in those who had a significant impact on their growth.
Human beings sometimes grow into what others see, not in a person they really are, because they trust them so much, for some reason. What others influence reflect us become the image we will see ourselves .
The good news is that it can change in an instant. You, like another person, have the power to look into yourself and get rid of the precautions and misinterpretations that are relevant to the one you truly are. Stop judging yourself as others believed or said once. Look at you again and remove any unintended restrictions from others. The chances are, they could not see you differently because of your own limitations.
Give yourself the gift of freedom today. Do not wait for one day. Just look into you and stop listening to the words that others have said about you. Instead, look for your own words; try to catch a little voice that sometimes tries to express itself in the back of the head and say … but … & # 39; Save yourself from old, unwanted burdens and have a new look at your actual. What are your true limits, if anything? What are your true strengths and virtues? And your talents? What is what you would definitely do to your life? Take control of who you are now. Give yourself permission to express all the beautiful visits to become the one who should be. I know it might sound terrible at first; After all, you've been the one you show the world for years now. But think about it this way … are you not tired of never feeling very happy? You may also need assistance to do this. Ask for it. Learn and apply the tools and methods that make it easier for you to understand and handle your old attitude. Any good person or coach could help you.
No one has the right to tell you who you are. This right is yours only. No one has the power to define yourself. Rebuild these powers now and make it incredibly beautiful before you are finally what it was supposed to be.
Enjoy life, all that,
