Why You Create Limitations in Your Life

It Reduces Your Responsibility to Become Successful

These things feel silly or weird when you first start doing them because they seem out of reach or useless.

Well, neither goal is silly or insignificant.

Everything of substance started off as something small and insignificant.

Everyone who has accomplished something of significance started off as someone simply trying to do something.

It can be really difficult to argue with someone when they have built a wall around themselves so high, thick and impenetrable that even the idea of self-improvement is silly to discuss over dinner.

We can use the people, places and events in our lives as barriers to our success or catalysts for our success and the choice is entirely ours.

Many people also do not make goals for fear of failure.

Why try anything new if you genuinely believe you will fail at it?

If one does manage to write down their goal, they may struggle to start working on the goal.

Brick by brick, you build up these walls, with concepts that concretize into facts: I am not good enough, I am not attractive enough, I am not smart enough, I am not worthy enough.

As the days go by, the light that is able to seep into your day becomes less and less as you continue to build the bricks up higher and higher.

When you have limitations built up around your life, they act as a barrier and as armour.

Letting your (self-imposed) limitations lead the direction of your life is easy, but mundane. Each day is typically a cookie-cutter version of the last and there is minimal zest in your day.

Will you, on your deathbed, say, ‘Thank God I did not take a single risk, now I can die in peace,” or will you feel like you lived a half-lived life or even worse, wasted the whole damn thing?
