”When you look in the mirror, what do you see? Do you see the real you, or what you have been conditioned to believe is you? The two are so, so different. One is an infinite consciousness capable of being and creating whatever it chooses, the other is an illusion imprisoned by its own perceived and programmed limitations”.
Do you impose limits on yourself? Perhaps you are not aware that you do? I know it is so easy to do.
If we are not careful, we can find ourselves stuck in life without even realising it due to imaginary, self-imposed boundaries.
It is all too easy for our own internal fears about our abilities or worthiness dictate our lives and stop us from growing. So how do we overcome these self-imposed limits and break through the barriers to achieve personal and professional growth?
You might think believing that you actually can do something would be the first step to overcoming your self-imposed limits. However, I think belief actually comes after you have made the commitment and once you have started working toward the challenge.
Make the decision to tackle a challenge that scares you, and get it on your calendar. Ask yourself what is the worst that can happen if you take on this challenge? Dig deep to understand what your real fear is about conquering the challenge.
Breaking through self imposed limits begins with defining what scares you the most, and deliberately choosing a challenge that addresses your fears. Remember, there is no one and nothing holding you back but yourself.
I believe the way forward is to focus on the challenge, not dwell on your fear. Remembering the words of Stephen Richards “When you do what you fear most, then you can do anything.”
We gain a lot of self confidence by expanding our limits and boundaries and by removing our limiting beliefs we start living outside of our comfort-zone.
“The only person who can pull me down is myself, and I’m not going to let myself pull me down anymore.”
