I was listening to my favorite radio host, Mark Levin, recently. A woman called in. She was very angry. She said she was a black woman. She told Mark, “you white people hate us. You hold us back.”
Then I thought about Ray Charles. Ray Charles is an icon. He was, in my opinion, one of the greatest musicians, period. Ray was black. He was also blind. He battled drug addiction for many years. And yet, he succeeded.
Why? Because Ray Charles didn’t care that he was black. Ray Charles didn’t care that he was blind. He only cared about one thing. His music. His passion to succeed gave him superpowers. Ray Charles’ unlimited beliefs propelled him to greatness. That’s what the right beliefs do. They give you superpowers.
But most muddle through life blaming everyone and everything for their circumstances.
If you believe white people are holding you back, you are right.
If you believe black people are holding you back, you are right.
If you believe illegal immigrants are holding you back, you are right.
Limiting beliefs are a cancer on society. Don’t allow limiting beliefs even a second of life. They will hold you back from the life you were intended to live.
