In life, there are no limits to what we can accomplish. After all, this is what parents tell their kids, teachers tell their students, and mentors tell their mentees. It's true, in a way. But what is also true, is that the greatest obstacles we face to accomplishing things in life are often self-imposed limitations. For whatever reason, we attempt to justify our lack of responsibility mentally, and consistently find someone or something upon which we can lay the blame. Looking deep underneath the surface of our excuses, however, we will find that the limitations we face are not created by anyone else but ourselves.
Sometimes we allow ourselves to get stuck in cycles of thought patterns, habits, and behaviours that are less than ideal. When we get stuck, we hinder ourselves from growth, and when we are not growing, we are not progressing. When we refuse to open up to new possibilities and opportunities, we take a path in life that is filled with more gray spots than black and white ones. Limiting ourselves not only causes problems for our personal lives, but it stifles business relationships, sucks the life out of family relationships, and pushes away our closest friends.
