The Rubber Band Theory and How to Kill Negative Beliefs [Limitless MD, Episode 40]


The main idea behind the rubber band theory is simple: who’s setting the limit to our potential? The easier route is to look at the things around us and point fingers. In reality, these external conditions can only get the best of us if we allow them to. The force that’s dictating how far and wide the rubber can stretch is the hand that’s holding the rubber. 

There are two possible outcomes we can expect depending on the choice we make around the “rubber band” of our lives. We can choose to hold on to it, allow it to stretch at a certain limit, and wait until it snaps and hits us hard. We also have the choice to let go and allow the rubber to fly…and if we aim it right, it could hit the mark.
