“Believe in yourself! Have faith in your abilities! Without a humble but reasonable confidence in your own powers, you cannot be successful or happy.”
-Norman Vincent Peale
In frustration Sally said, “I'm overwhelmed. I have too much to do, yet I don’t want to disappoint my boss. I’ll just postpone some of my difficult tasks and work on some easier ones.”
Sally has entered the realm of Scarcity Thinking.
Being overwhelmed and frustrated, she's become fear-focused. Her fear will attract the very condition she wants to avoid (i.e. disappointing her boss) and will ultimately derail her Greatness Journey.
However, if Sally would choose to focus on the truth of who she is and what she excels in doing, she would regain her confidence and thus be better equipped to control her circumstances.
