Day #356: Transformation Is Possible – Stop Limiting Yourself


Ask yourself this question. Do you believe in transformation? Would you be where you are today if you had given up early in the year? 

Maybe this year, you didn’t set out with a list of goals, but maybe opportunities found you. Maybe you started a new job, moved to a new location, joined a gym mid-year, realized a hobby you’re naturally good at or maybe you took on a responsibility in the local community. Whatever the case may be, there must have been something this year which was a step up for you which was a difference to the norm and which required you to grow. Which has prompted transformation?

Imagine if you had given up on whatever this was, in the early stages. Where would you be now? Not necessarily with the opportunity, but where would you be as an individual. Opportunities are not just about allowing you to shine in the eyes of others, but they are perfect ways for you to grow and become a greater you. The point I am trying to make here is: Too often people limit themselves by not being sure of their success.

If we all stop limiting ourselves and if we stop waiting for opportunities to find us and we step out on our own to conquer – we may just surprise ourselves. Sadly enough people don’t try new things because they fear failure or they don’t feel comfortable in their own skin and as a result, they don’t approach new people or speak up. That’s an awful way to live life… Because — we’re all equally gifted and it’s all a matter of choice and initiative whether we’ll become the best version of ourselves or live an average life. But if you stop limiting yourself, big transformations will start happening in every area of your life right away.

As we venture into these final 10 days (less than 10 now) I will explore each one of the below transformations in lead-up to the new year. Which I think you can make it your best year yet!

What is the transformation you will see:

  • You’ll have bigger goals.If you’re already thinking you cannot succeed, maybe you are just a little scared to dream big. I dare you to set a new big goal for 2016 and don’t set out to prove it to the world, but to prove it to yourself. Prove to yourself you have what it takes. Because you do have what it takes. But if you don’t set out to achieve a goal – you will never achieve anything better in life – unless an opportunity jumps in your lap. If you simply let go of the limitations you have set for yourself, you will soon realize you have the capabilities to set your eye on the prize and make it happen.So my challenge to you is to define your deepest desires for the perfect ideal lifestyle that you would see fit, and start to take the steps in making this happen. The first one being BELIEVING IN YOURSELF. Write down these things you need to do – think of the person you need to be like in order to get closer to meeting your goals. This is it. This is your chance. Don’t waste it. 
  • You’ll improve your skills.
  • You’ll overcome shyness.
  • You’ll get things done.
  • You’ll be present.
  • You’ll enjoy life more.
  • You’ll generate ideas.
  • You won’t get depressed.
  • You’ll take action more often.
  • You’ll become a role model.

Don’t limit yourself. Many people limit themselves to what they think they can do. You can go as far as your mind lets you. What you believe, remember, you can achieve. – Mary Kay Ash
