Are You Denying Your Greatness?

By Randy Gage in Critical Thinking, Success, Prosperity.

Last week in my Friday Filosophy newsletter I raised the issue of denying your greatness.  This is an issue that I am over-qualified to teach, because I overlooked my own potential for so many years. 

It’s a safe bet you did – or are still doing – the same. 

I’ve done amazing things.  Just wrote the very last word of my 13th book and sent it off to my editor.  Each of the first 12 have been bestsellers.  I’ve accomplished lots of stuff at very high levels, even in three different Halls of Fame.   And I can tell you I’ve been thinking small.  Miniscule.  Holding myself back by denying the extraordinary greatness I can really do, have, and become.

And I bet you have done the same… 

The Miami Dolphins haven’t been able to find a reliable starting quarterback since Dan Marino retired.  That was 19 years ago.  But there are 150 guys (and honestly, probably more than a few gals) floating around who could do the job magnificently.  The problem is they’ve never picked up a football.

There are at least 100 people alive today who could cure the deadly diseases we face.  But they’ve talked themselves out of being a scientist because they don’t think they’re qualified.  There are people taking community college courses who should be teaching Ph.D. ones.  There are women serving as assistants to company presidents, who should really have the title themselves.

What is holding these people back isn’t fear of failure but fear of success.  They are infected with self-doubt, limiting beliefs and worthiness issues they were probably programed (brainwashed) with before they were 10 years old. This denial they exhibit is the denial of their true potential.  Denial that they are really capable of doing great things.

Every person on earth possesses mad genius in some area or another.  A gift, unique to them, that needs to be shared with the world.

You’ve probably already figured out where I’m going with this…

What greatness you are denying yourself from achieving?  Denying yourself by thinking small, keeping your head below the cubicle, or playing “safe.”  Let’s see how serious you are about changing it…

If you really are serious, I challenge you to scroll down to the comments below and post something.  Write out what you have been denying about yourself – and what you’re going to do about it.  Go public with a commitment to achieve it, where everyone can see. 

This does two things:  First it forces you to confront your self-sabotage.  And two, it allows the community here to support you in your efforts to breakthrough and achieve your greatness.  You up for that?

    I declare that until and unless I see a more suitable vision for myself, I will re-elevate myself past the
    level of prosperity, that’s ten times greater than my previous best year, which was 018′.

    Financially, that will qualify me to being close to a seven digit earner, but much more importantly, I want to be giving at least 10X more back to communities of my choice, than one year ago, in January.

    In addition I’ll be favorably living in a warm southern usa state of my choice, involved in meaningful projects of my choice! (or somewhere better!)

    I’ll be financially free, thriving, prospering, and have redeemed myself – to myself – and my creator, by the summer of 021′

    I declare this to be true and “the ultimate reality”

    Great transmutation has occurred and is still occurring!

    P.S. Great belief increase occurred just by declaring this publically. Good for me! Yay!
    P.P.S. I AM enabling myself to go after my dreams!

      @wellbeingsights wonderful. Thanks! You are a good example of how to properly and meaningfully formulate the goals and desires.
      @Randy Gade, I only discovered you a few days ago. And I read one of your books and work with the content. I thank you for everything!

    My problem is that I don’t want to be a public figure, but my profession would require it (I am an entrepreneur), since it is a form of advertisement. In fact, I was very popular in my younger ages, and it was terrible. I could not just simply walk on the street without others stopping me constantly (don’t get this in an egoistic sense, I don’t meant that way). I don’t like the idea of being recognizable everywhere (in my town). It is uncomfortable. I like to be a hidden millionaire whom nobody knows. Sadly, this is quiet impossible. I know I have to get over it. What am I going to do? Well, take a big breath and just do it. Building relationships, make endless advertisements, and so on.

  6. A Genius is what you are Randy Gage. This article is so timely for me today! It really hit a chord in me. Thank you!

      I’ve held myself back with my network marketing business simply by allowing doubt to creep in. My finances are a mess and I have a ton of debt. However, I’ve been immersing myself into more personal development and taking my business much more seriously. Also I’ve had the “lightbulb” moment that in order to get the things I want, I’ll have th o step way out of my comfort zone.
      Thanks Randy.
