When it comes to living your best life, designing your life just how you’d love it to be, you may have heard this concept of breakthrough or releasing your limitations. It gives us the idea that there is a big wall stacked up in front of us that is stopping us from having our dream life or business and if we can somehow figure out how to crumble it, get over it or go around it then we will have all that we want.
The concept that forms for a lot of us from this analogy is that the limitation is external. A block that is outside of our own body or mind that is somehow getting in the way.
You may decide that your partner is holding you back. Or the government’s new policies are hindering your business growth. Or your parents didn’t give you the right start, the right genes or the right love and support. Where you live is limiting your potential and so on.
So, what really is going on and what are ‘limitations’ when it comes to unlocking your potential?
Simply this. If your life is not how you want it to be, then you have limitations. The challenge comes when you realise that these limitations are not external but rather are concepts you have created in your mind. Essentially, they are figments of your imagination. Bullshit stories that you tell yourself over and over again to keep you where you are, rather than where you want to be.
Sure, sometimes it seems like these limitations are external. We often give up our power to these external events as it can seem easier to blame things out of our control than to take responsibility and therefore take action in our lives.
It all starts in your mind. In your unconscious mind usually. Limitations are mindsets and beliefs we hold onto that once supported us to help us think we were ‘ok’, ‘safe’ and ‘in control’. For example, you might tell yourself that you are no good at marketing and that is why your business is not growing. This is a limitation. It is stopping you from learning marketing and improving your business. You might decide that because you live in a small town that you could never grow a global business. Again – this limitation will stop you from taking the action to move in the direction of your dream.
The list goes on. Take a moment to reflect on where you feel blocked or limited in your life right now. What could be the mindsets or beliefs that you are holding onto that are keeping you in that place and stopping you from living your best life?
