I write this note for all the ones who say:
“I am not strong enough”.
Admittedly, I’ve also succumbed to my genetic limitations. I’ve said too many times that my arms are too short, or my hands are too small to be able to get into a trick.
But at some point, you’ll realize that your strength is defined by what you allow yourself to become. You are the most powerful voice in your head. What you tell yourself is what your body will believe, and ultimately what it will become in the end. Be kind to yourself, but at the same time, believe that you can do more.
Recognizing your limit should not be the end of it. It’s half the fight, but not enough to win the battle. Compete with no one. Instead, aim to become the best version of yourself.
It’s never a utopian transformation of thought. I, too, experience self-doubt sometimes. But I never let it win. NEVER. Punch it hard. Let it fall beneath you.
Everyday, you are given the chance to make the decision to become stronger. To challenge your limits and to allow your body to amaze you. No one is ever born strong. You have to take it upon yourself to make the most of what you are given. Only then will you defy.
If you don’t have a mantra, let me share mine with you:
My will, will always be mightier than my genetics.
