Beyond limits

Your limitations exist not to confine you, but to challenge you to greater and greater things. Those limitations give you a perfect platform against which to push ahead. Your limitations define your own special pathway to accomplishment. For in going beyond them you are moving forward in a truly meaningful way.

Look back upon your life at the experiences and times when you’ve grown stronger. You’ll clearly see that in every case, you were challenged in some new way, and by overcoming those challenges you gained new strength.

Limitations give you a great idea of where to focus your efforts for maximum results. For when you get past the few things that hold you back, everything you do becomes more effective.

Go just a little bit beyond your limits and you’ll discover that you have suddenly extended those limits outward. Then go beyond them again and again until what was once impossible becomes commonplace.

— Ralph Marston
