Tom Ziglar talks about people being tethered to the ground like a balloon.
He imagines each of the ropes as a bad habit or a limiting belief. Some of the ropes are things people have told you, and you’ve internalised them.
Maybe they’ve said you’re ‘not the kind of person’ who makes a change, or who sets out on their own path.
As Ziglar says, you can (if you choose) bravely look over the edge of the balloon, cut each rope, and as you do so say ‘I don’t need this belief. I don’t have to accept it. I’m going to cut myself free’. And when you cut each rope, you’ll bob higher.
