Four things come not back: the spoken word, the spent arrow, the past, and the neglected opportunity.

Leaving limitations behind

There is some way to get beyond every limiting factor that exists outside you. The limitations within you, however, are the ones that most stubbornly hold you back.

The challenges and obstacles outside you usually require time, effort and persistence to get beyond. Getting past the limitations within you requires nothing more than the simple act of letting go.

Yet all too often, those self-imposed limitations persist, day after day, year after year. But every one of them can be gone the moment you choose to let go.

Why do you cling so tightly to the limiting thoughts, the assumptions, and the feelings that hold you back? It doesn’t really matter why.

What matters is that you realize those self-imposed limitations are not a permanent part of you. You can choose, at any time, to leave them behind.

When you do, you’ll find that you can easily and naturally handle whatever challenges life may throw your way. When you leave your limitations behind, you’ll be moving quickly and solidly ahead.
