If you always put limits on everything you do, physical or anything else, it will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them. ~Bruce Lee
The truth is we must accept reality but we do not have to accept limitations. A very harsh reality can be losing your legs in a war, an auto accident, or to an illness. Seeing that reality as a plateau rather than a permanent limitation means finding a way to not only survive, but finding a way to thrive in your new reality.
That is the truth about all the limitations in our life. We can spend a great deal of time crying and moaning that life isn’t fair or we can devise a way to work around the limitation. I believe the obstacles in our lives can do one of two things: 1) stop us in our tracks, or 2) force us to become creative.
When we choose to rely on our imagination, visualizing a new reality, and believing in possibilities even before that new reality is actually here, I believe we are using our minds as they were meant to be used. Limitations are borders where reality ends and where imagination and a new story begins.
Challenge: Today spend some time considering a limit/plateau in your life. Then get creative with your imagination. Visualize a new reality until you can actually see it. Believe in the possibilities. Write a new story.
