Are others holding you back ?

Often people are held back by the people around them – by negativity. There are different mindsets. For example, there is an American-style mindset that is so focused on the possibility of being the best in the world – which is something I admire about American people – but the Australian mindset sometimes isn’t like that.
In Australia, we sometimes see a mindset where people around kids say things like: ‘Don’t worry about doing that’ … ‘You know that’s too hard’ … ‘You know you’ll never be able to afford it’ … ‘You’ll never be able to make it’.
If that attitude is bred into you for too long, eventually you’ll believe it.
