“You can’t put a limit on anything. The more you dream, the farther you get.” – Michael Phelps
There are no limits to human growth because there are no limits to the human capacity for intelligence, wonder and imagination. So what keeps so many of us from doing what we long to do?
We get realistic about what we are capable of, and as a result, we create self imposed limitations, lies that we tell ourselves as to why we can’t do something.
Can you think of areas in your own life where you place restrictions on yourself?
Perhaps you’re unaware. (Check out Soul Filling Podcast Ep. 8 to find out what’s stopping you)
Below are two ways to live your life without limits.
Overcome the antagonist, yourself
Self-imposed limitations are connected to self image. The lower your self image, the lower the expectations you will have for yourself. You will continually underperform and talk yourself out of opportunities until you have confidence in yourself and believe that you will be successful.
Everything that is possible today was once seen as impossible. So remove words and thoughts of I can’t. It is slang for “I’m unwilling to put in the work required.” And don’t let your past or people’s assessment of you stop you from going after your dreams. Your mistakes don’t define you.
Overcome your fears
What you love, you empower. What you fear, you empower. And what you empower, you attract. What are you attracting in your life? Is it unemployment, debt, disease, depression, abandonment, abuse, wickedness, broken relationships, addictions, bad habits, temptations, failure, anger, crisis.
You have the power, authority, wisdom and knowledge to face your fears and defeat your enemies. So whatever it is, just know those things come to make you feel inadequate, like you don’t have what it takes and are essentially hindering blocks to shut you down. Fear’s only job is to prevent you from changing and everything you want in life is right on the other side of that fear.
Now I want to hear from you:
