I review my life and I think of hurdles, chapters, moments in time where I have allowed deficiency to combat choices & decisions.
If I were to look up the word deficiency in the dictionary it would most commonly be characterised as – failure, shortcoming, weakness.
As Lyanla Vanzant once said, your eyes will adjust to the level of deficiency present.
So in other words…we adjust our life expectations, desires & goals based on what other people have experienced.
My ‘goal’ as a child was to become a writer. In 8th Grade my teacher told my mum during parent teacher interviews ‘you need to work on lowering her expectations of becoming a writer’.
My mother was outraged, I was confused & blindsided, MY vision for MY life adjusted then & there.
All the while keeping in mind that a vision is so important – YOUR vision is for YOU.
