The first problem for all of us, men and women, is not to learn, but to unlearn.

See it as an opportunity

It’s only a limitation if you see it as a limitation. Choose to see it differently, and you’ll find a way around it.

Many things influence your life and your work, often in negative and limiting ways. Nothing, however, can stop you from moving forward in each moment with positive purpose when you are committed to doing so.

Instead of assuming that some factor in your life is a limitation, make a different assumption. Decide to see it as an opportunity to grow stronger.

Instead of wallowing in disappointment when things don’t work out the way you planned, choose a different response. Choose to be more inspired, more motivated and more determined than ever before.

Whatever has happened, has happened, and there’s nothing you can do to change that. What you can change, though, is what you do with it.

Tell yourself it’s a good thing, and moving forward, you’ll find a way for it to be precisely that. Rather than seeing something as a limitation, see it as an opportunity and get busy living the value that is most certainly there.
