Here is an excerpt from my book, The Silent Master: Awakening the Power Within:
In the readiness stage of Self Discovery, what stands most in the way of setting goals is your concept of yourself. This is why it is so important to have an open mind when you set goals. I have heard people say over and over things like: “I’m a very good organizer, but I’m not at all creative.” Or: “I think I’m a pretty good mechanic, but I could never be a computer programmer.” These comments demonstrate what I mean by holding a full cup. These people have sealed their own fate with their own limited belief. In the first comment, we not only have a statement that is self limiting, but one that is also outright contradictory. The ability to bring organization into a state of confusion is not the opposite of creativity. Organizing is a highly creative process. How often we limit ourselves by how we define concepts!
