Remove Your Limitations
“Argue for your limitations and they’re yours.”
—Richard Bach, Illusions
What if there are no limits to what you can accomplish? What if you can be, do, or have anything you want? What if all you have to do is ask for something and you receive it?
The first time I read the quote at the top of this post, I literally gasped out loud. It was suddenly clear to me that, in spite of the confidence I had in my own abilities, there were times when I set limits for myself. In those times, I hadn’t been able to accomplish the goals I’d set for myself because, in spite of the fact that I wanted them, I’d ‘thought’ and ‘believed’ that I couldn’t achieve them.
“Argue for your limitations and they’re yours.” When Richard Bach wrote those words in his book, Illusions: The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah, he was making the point that we each set limits, consciously or unconsciously, to what we can be, do, or have.
The truth is that there are no limits to what we can accomplish. The only limits are those we impose upon ourselves.
Next time you set a goal for yourself, examine your thoughts and your deep-down core beliefs. Ask yourself if you really ‘think’ and ‘believe’ that you can accomplish the goal you are setting for yourself. And, if you have any doubts, ask yourself if they’re valid or if they’re motivated by any self-imposed, possibly subconscious beliefs.
