What exactly does it mean o be limitless? I don’t think it means that we are without limits because we all have limits. We can only run so fast or jump so high. We can can only go so many days without water or hold our breath for so long.
But those aren’t really the limits I’m talking about.
Every new world record was achieved by breaking the limits. And all new inventions or ideas that are made into something are because someone thought of something and decided to make it happen. Too often we listen to the wrong people and let them impose limits on us. When we come up with an idea that’s “out-of-the-box” we’re called stupid or crazy. We’re told ‘that will never work.’
Don’t listen to those people.
Because they don’t know. They’ve never tried anything new or ‘unsafe.’ They don’t like stepping out of their comfort zone because it’s too scary for them. And that’s alright. Just don’t let them stop you from achieving greatness or achieving your dreams.
This short blurb from Jae M. Rang about limitless is awesome:
When you drive down the highway, you can’t help but notice that the government has imposed a speed limit.
When you find a good special, the store imposes a quantity limit.
When you purchase a home, the bank imposes a credit limit.
It doesn’t matter where you turn, there are limits.
Limits to cell phone usage.
Limits to how much you should eat.
Limits to how many days off you can take from work.
And as with any limit, when we push the envelope – cross the line – there are consequences.
But what about the limits imposed on our potential?
The ones we’d been conditioned to accept relating to what we deserve, how much money we should make or trips we’re allowed to take?
Now, maybe our parents and teachers taught us to play it safe to keep us protected. After all, they love us, right?
And… when you push boundaries, there are repercussions. I’m sure they wanted to protect us from bad things happening.
But did any of those boundaries protect us from really good things happening?
Aha – the most impeding limits are limiting beliefs.
Pushing a limit – taking a risk – isn’t always a bad thing.
The question is, when did the limitations imposed become a habit as opposed to a choice?
Our limiting beliefs about our growth and potential may have been influenced by someone – the seed was planted – but we’re choosing to water that plant and reinforce the limiting belief.
Take a step back and ask yourself: “What limiting belief is playing in my head and my heart that is keeping me from soaring!?
Is it about money? About accomplishment? Education? Circle of friends? A car?
Some people say it’s better to be safe than sorry. But really … if you always play it safe, you might be sorry!
At the end of the day, we regret the things we didn’t do more than the things we did!
If there is one thing you should be totally comfortable taking a risk on, that should be yourself.
After all, when you make up your mind to be so, you’re unstoppable!

You Are Limitless
You have dreams.
You have goals.
You want to try something but you’re holding back because you’re not sure what the outcome will be. But if you never try, you’ll never know.
Remember: You Are Limitless!
