Choose to let them go

What if you could have full control over all the limitations that hold you back? What if you could transform each one of those limiting factors into an advantage that would bring value to your life and your world?

What gives power to those limitations anyway? Who or what causes them to be limitations in the first place?

You do, for the limitations are able to stop you only because you imagine that they can. When you can release their limiting concepts from your mind, what were once limitations suddenly cease to be.

No, you cannot always change the conditions that you perceive as limitations. What you can always change, in an instant when you wish, is how you relate to them and what you do with them.

When you encounter a brick wall, or a lack of money, a health problem or another person who is causing you harm, you can certainly see those things as limitations. Or you can work your way under them, around them, through them and away from their limiting influences.

You cannot choose all the things that come along in life, yet you always choose your limitations. Choose, then, to let them go.

— Ralph Marston
