Crushing Your Limitations
Everyone has limitations: I know for a fact that I will not be break dancing anymore in my lifetime. I know this to be true, because I've tried -- dislocated my shoulder, broke my wrist, and busted my forehead -- tried again, and again and again, and have not been successful. I now realize that fitness dancing is the best I'm going to do - and I'm absolutely comfortable with that. I can sleep at night knowing that I'll never master break dancing because I know in my heart that I have given everything that I WAS WILLING to give it to try to conquer this limitation.
However, there's another kind of limitation that is much more insidious, and if you're not careful and cognizant of it, you may commit one of the great travesties in life. That is, living a life with self-imposed limitations. I call it "one of the great travesties" because no one should accept someone else's limitation as their own.
I use the word "insidious" because self-imposed limitations creep up on you. They come from sources such as doctors, friends, and even family members. They're not trying to intentionally sabotage your chances of success, they are usually trying to protect you from "failing" or perhaps from injury either mentally or physically. In some cases, they're passing along limitations that they've either discovered or have chosen to accept because they heard it from someone they trusted.
One of the keys to living the life we want is determining which limitations we are willing to accept versus the ones we want to defy. Once you identify the limitations in your life that are holding you back from living the life you want -- CONGRATULATE yourself, because you, my friend, have just discovered your path to freedom!
Soooo... What are you waiting for?
Go find some limitations worth crushing! And then enjoy the benefits of reaching your goals and fulfilling your dreams! Yeah Baby!
