Limitations or possibilities?

Few things can hold you back unless you think they will hold you back. Many times those who succeed in accomplishing the “impossible” do so because they don’t know it is impossible. Most limitations require your support in order to continue their existence.

Are you giving your energy to your limitations or to your possibilities? When you give support to your limitations you’re basically working against yourself. Certainly there are some very real and powerful limitations imposed upon you. What matters most is what you do about them. If you dwell on them or fashion them into excuses, they will surely defeat you.

Instead, give your focus and your energy to your possibilities. Look for ways to succeed, rather than for excuses to fail. There are plenty of both to be had. It is your choice which to gather.

Put your time and your effort where they will make a positive difference. Your limitations do not need your support. Your positive possibilities do. Work to make them stronger and more real with each glorious moment.
