Free from limitation

You are not your limitations. Though you may hold tightly to them and even embrace them, you can also free yourself from them when you decide to do so. Though they may seem like an integral part of you, they are not. You have adopted them and you can also let them go.

Imagine being completely free of your most confining limitations. Though your life would certainly be different, the fact is that you would still be you. You don’t need the limitations. They’re not permanently bonded to you. You can indeed disengage. That freedom is closer than you think. It begins the moment you stop giving power to your limiting thoughts, feelings, habits and actions.

Your limitations are not imposed on you. They are accepted by you. No condition, no circumstance is inherently limiting. What you do with those circumstances is what matters most. Rather than looking for excuses to give up, find the reasons to move forward. Go beyond those limiting thoughts and free yourself to be your very best.
