Happy Monday Morning! In today’s #MotivationMonday I tackle two questions submitted by viewers…
How can I keep from falling under the labels people put on me?
How can I keep a positive attitude?
Confession: I hate labels. And for the most part, I can’t stand critics either.
People who critique you and try to label you and me are trying to influence the way we see ourselves. When you accept a label as true, you are limiting yourself to whatever you believe that label means. You are allowing someone else to define you. You are handing over your power to someone else. (Just typing those words makes me sick.)
You see, I believe that you and I have almost limitless possibilities. We can live our lives creating ourselves any way we choose. The moment we accept a label, however, we become limited by what we think that label means.
