Limitations are physical, mental and emotional, momentary, temporary or permanent.
What limits us?
In our youth, feeling invincible, we don’t think about these things nor feel much need to.
Easily excused – that perceived limitations are inevitable. Where we are living and working are just details. More important methinks are issues of ‘who we are’, what we dream of doing and recognizing that something important enough isn’t going to be held back by a few limitations of obstacles.
Rather than thinking about what we COULD DO if we had more flexibility, a fat wallet or fewer limitations – shouldn’t we be more focused on what we feel the NEED TO DO, what we have the passion for that we desperately WANT TO DO – then just start.
Start small, start slow, starting is essential.
What are you waiting for?
Nice pep talk, great theory – but in practice most of us look back at last year, or the last ten – we wonder why we didn’t stick with some things, why we were so distracted from some of our goals, why we didn’t accomplish things we wanted to – things we were completely capable of. We lament losses of opportunity.
What stops us from starting new, starting something new – or resuming something we let go of in the past? Nothing stops us except our own psycho-blather about what limitations are in our way.
Our path ahead can be a jungle thicket, or smooth new pavement. Choose.
Our path ahead can be fresh and exciting or abysmal failure. Choose.
Our path ahead can be full of good health or despair. Choose.
