Own Your Limitations

Own Your Limitations

There is an old Buddhist saying that goes like this:

“If you don’t have time to meditate for one hour, meditate for two hours.”

Here are a few other ideas along this same line.

If you think that someone else is the problem, think that is your problem. If you think the problem is external, your problem is not recognizing that it’s internal.

If you believe that something or someone is preventing you from being or having what you want, you don’t yet recognize that you are the only person that can prevent you from being or doing what you want.

If you think that you don’t have time to do the things that you want, your problem has nothing to do with time. It has everything to do with your priorities.

If you think you can’t have more money unless or until someone gives you more money, then you don’t understand that the only way to earn more is to create more value for others.

If you think you will be happy when something happens, or when you move to some new location in the future, then you misunderstand happiness. Happiness is a decision you make in the present moment. The present moment is the only one you have. The past is only pictures and movies, and so is the future.

What limits do you believe you have because someone or something is imposing those limits?
What would you do if you didn’t believe you had those limits?

Hit to send me your thoughts, stories, and ideas. Share this with someone who needs it, maybe someone who needs to recognize that they are limiting themselves.
