As a writer, I consistently face the challenges of writer’s block, deadlines, and rejections. As a public speaker, performance psychologist, and life strategist, I encounter countless others with similar challenges. Through my experiences, I have come to realize that success is not determined by how many times we fall, but by how many times we get back up. This is where the “I’m Built for This” mentality comes into play. It is a mantra that has been adopted by successful people from all walks of life. In this article, we will explore the importance of embracing the “I’m Built for This” mindset.
Introduction to the “I’m Built for This” mentality
The “I’m Built for This” mentality is a mindset that allows you to overcome obstacles and challenges. It is a mentality that says, “No matter what comes my way, I can handle it.” This mentality is not just about being positive but also about recognizing your strength and resilience. When face my most challenging times, I step in front of the mirror, and I tell myself, “I’m Built for This.” I don’t wait for the answer or the solution to make my declaration; I speak it with confidence.
“You shall declare a thing, and it will be established for you, and light will shine on your path!” (Job 22:28)
What is interesting about this biblical passage is that the Hebrew word translated as “declare” or “decree” is “gazar,” which means to cut out, cut off, or isolated. So when you speak in the form of a declaration about your life and your future, you are isolating a specific idea, expectation, and outcome. The declaration is specific, and it is established.
The importance of finishing what you start
Life is about finishing what you start. The “I’m Built for This” mentality is about pushing through the tough times and never giving up. When you embrace this mindset, you don’t just start things; you finish them. You don’t let fear, doubt, or uncertainty stop you from achieving your goals.

When we face challenges, we must remind ourselves that we are strong enough to handle them. You will not circumvent life’s challenges. The vicissitudes of life will roll into your paradise. Your responsibility is to press with an indomitable will until you push through it. No matter where you are in your journey, if you are still breathing, you are still in the fight.
