What are my limitations?

As I wrote in my last message to you, your only limitation in creating the life that you desire lies in the development and use of your imagination.

This is an idea that comes directly from Think & Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill.

Let me share with you another thought, and that is this:

"There are no limitations to the mind, except those we acknowledge; both poverty and riches are the offspring of thought." – Napoleon Hill

What are the limitations that you have placed on your life?

Yeah, maybe that’s direct and bold of me to say… but it’s true that we’ve all been programmed to varying degrees to limit ourselves in how we express the fullness of our own life force.

We’ve been told things like, "Money doesn’t grow on trees," "The rich get richer and the poor get poorer," and, "You have to play the cards you’re dealt in life."

Do these linguistic metaphors sound familiar to you?

I know I’ve certainly been told these things. I would put forward an idea and everyone around me would say, "how are you going to do that?" Or, "who do you think you are? What makes you think you’ll be successful?"

These were the kinds of people I had surrounded myself with, and they were feeding into my beliefs of limitation.

I had been programmed since I was an infant. Since before I was even born, I was being programmed in my mother’s womb, according to the thoughts and beliefs of my family, of my parents, of my ancestors, and of my environment too.

Needless to say, I came from a very poor family, and the first half of my life, I really believed I wasn’t going to amount to anything. I believed that I was just a high school drop-out, dumb and stupid, without any hope for a better life.

I thought I had to play the cards that life had dealt me, even though it felt so unfair, so unjust.

It wasn’t until I met my first mentor, Patrick Hayes, who placed in my hands the book, Think & Grow Rich, and started mentoring me through it, that my eyes began to open to the possibility that there was more for me.

That I could be, do, and have literally anything I set my mind to. And the same is true for you.

Now let me say, you can’t just sit on the couch and think about what it is you want without taking action.

There’s a whole lot more that goes into it, but it really does start with shifting your thinking and your mindset to find a place of belief within yourself that you have been created with infinite potential, and that you are fully resourced by an infinite creator to create the life that you desire to live.

If you took that idea and you really, truly believed it, and you started acting in accordance with that belief, it’ll change everything about your life.

I guarantee it.
