Performance fails are incredibly embarrassing. The thought of re-experiencing that pain causes us to self-censor. As a result, we cut ourselves off from our own potential.
Over the course of 15 years after a surgery, the scar tissue gradually limited my mobility. The distance I could walk got shorter and shorter. The speed I could walk got slower and slower.
How has fear of embarrassment and self-censorship gradually limited your potential? Like me, did you resign yourself to it? Did you make concessions and modify your path?
By the time I could hardly move, something snapped inside me and I sought out help. Within 1 year I was able to return to yoga, bike riding, long hikes and I even climbed a mountain!
Does this diagram snap something in you?
