You are capable of more than you think! You already have proof of this, but have you even noticed? At some point in your life, you might have even surprised yourself by accomplishing something that seemed well beyond your abilities. Think back… Was that incident as much of a fluke as you thought it was?
Too often the very thing that is giving us limitations, is ourselves. We tend to play it safe, sticking to routines, doing things over and over that we know we are good at without trying to push beyond. After all, trying new things can be scary! Today though, it is going to be different. Today YOU are going to do something bold and daring.
The moment you say the magic words: I CAN DO THIS, whatever you are pushing yourself to do becomes possible in your mind. It is when you tell yourself that you cannot do something that you are doomed to failure. On the other hand, a strong can-do attitude will help you to act with boldness until you can start feeling it as well! Do not put pressure on yourself to achieve this goal!
Tapping into someone else’s experience is one of the most powerful things you can do to help you realize and achieve your goals. A mentor whose boldness you admire has the wisdom to help you achieve your goals. As a bonus, they also become that encourager who will give you that solid kick in the rear when you need it, and help you push past your limitations.
You are never going to be able to push yourself to your highest limits without a solid list of mini goals and milestones to get you there. Bold actions require a road map sometimes! What is your life purpose? Write it down, create an action plan to achieve this goal, and push past your limitations!
By keeping a journal, and writing down what you are grateful for, and your every day’s successes, you have something tangible that you can go back and read through to see where you have been, and how much you have accomplished and grown. These records become inspiration and motivation both, as it reminds you of all the times where you acted with boldness.
If you are a competitive person by nature, then use that competitiveness to your advantage! Set small challenges for yourself. Make a bet that you can complete a goal by a certain deadline, and then push yourself to achieve your goal. Show yourself what a winner you are!
Never be afraid to challenge yourself and push past your limits to achieve your goals. Boldly press on, daring to cover new ground, and challenge every limitation. Do not stop until you achieve your goal. You can do this!
