It is so truly amazing how easy it is for us to decide our limits and abilities without even really giving it a second thought. Every decision we make and every thought that we have, defines who we think we are and what we think we are capable of. Limits what we can achieve. Limits who we can be.
Talking to good friend in the throws of starting his first business, we were discussing potential clients. Suggesting that he reach out to a rather large company in his field, his first and immediate reaction was, “They are too big a fish”. And that was it. Limit defined.
My next questions were : Why? How do you know? What do you have too loose by trying?
The point is this.
How do you know if you do not at least try?
Think you cannot pick up the weight at the gym? How do you know? Have you tried? Really tried?
Think you will never survive the next fitness class? Are you sure?
Think you cannot loose weight? Hmpf….
No argument it will not be easy. And your motivation to succeed will be tested over and over and over. But if you never stop testing your limits, you will never find them. All you have to do is just keep on testing.
Unlimited… Just saying….
