Bought my first pair of Nikes, ever. Realized I had a mental block about them that I wanted to get over.
Growing up on the broker side, I knew I’d never have them. I’d rock “Adidas,” but with four stripes on them. Not three. “Nike’s” with jacked up swooshes.
Didn’t bother me much as a kid. But for some reason, I started having a weird resentment towards them the last few months as an adult.
I “hated” Nikes.
Only XYZ people wear Nikes.
Realized it was childhood me talking, justifying why I never had any.
Sounds superficial. But if you follow basic mindset, this is bigger than that. This wasn’t just shoes. The shoes were metaphorical for a lot of limiting, childhood bullshit.
- If something is taking up space in your head, tackle it.
- If you think about something more than once, tackle it.
Otherwise, a little thought here and there turns into interruptions and distractions. Little acknowledgements and changes are what set in big impact in motion. No matter how small it seems, tackle it.
