Taxes and Limiters


If you’re reading this, I’m assuming you are a tax-paying adult. But at some point in the past, before you had a job or lived on your own or while you were still in school, I know for a fact that you were a non-tax-paying adult/young adult. And while there are many changes that take place during the transition from the low-responsibility stages of life when you don’t pay taxes to the higher-responsibility stages of life when you do pay taxes, you’re still the same person.

What changed? Your brain size didn’t double, your genetic makeup didn’t shift, you did not become a new person. No, you simply had to do taxes. If you’re anything like most people, the first time you had to do your taxes, you probably had no idea what you were doing. Eventually, with guidance from people who had done their taxes or with help from the internet and a little bit of trial and error, you became a tax-paying adult.

In the same way that you were once “unable” to do taxes and then in the next year you were “able” to do taxes, you are currently “unable” to do many things that you could do if you wanted or had to.

The real reason you can’t do X, Y, or Z isn’t because you’re too stupid, too shy, too weak, or too anything else. Those lines of thinking are inaccurate and ineffective.

More accurate and effective is to recognize that your limiters are your priorities and actions.

If you want to do something, discard the reasons why you can’t, and direct your attention to why you haven’t (yet).
