How To Go Beyond Limits And Expand Your Horizons

Are you making your world small? Do you feel limited or do you feel like your options are limited? What if limitation is an illusion of the mind?

Over the last few years I have come to discover that there is more we don’t know than we do know about ourselves. Take a moment and read that one again. Is it possible that there might be more to you than you realize? Is it possible there is more to discover about yourself and your potential? 

When we put a stake in the ground about who we are, our strengths, our weaknesses, what we can & can’t do, we start to experience life and ourselves in a more limited way. We label and close ourselves off. We determine what is true and then live as if there is nothing new to experience or discover.

I see this often with the solopreneurs & entrepreneurs I work with. They feel up against a limitation within themselves, their ability to scale, to have more reach, more impact, etc. People say things like, “I don’t have it in me.” “It’s not my strength.” “I’m flawed; this idea is flawed; this situation is flawed”. 

It is declarations such as these that create an internal experience of limitation—a box in which we place ourselves and our ideas and in doing so restrict the potential for growth.

When we think we know, we stop learning. 

Yet, here is a powerful truth: our personality is not fixed; our potential is not fixed; our ability to have new thought & fresh ideas is not fixed. Beyond the thoughts and ideas of who we think we are, lies an infinite potential of new experiences.

The only way to experience ourselves fresh; to have a fresh experience of our potential is to step into the unknown. Fresh does not reside in history or in everything we think we know – it resides in what we don’t know.

When we become less attached to our ideas about ourselves, we create more space and our preconceived ideas begin to fall away. We see the illusion of thought and naturally begin to experience new hope and inspiration. 

When we stop looking in the direction of limitation or what we think we know, we naturally expand and begin to get new thoughts and ideas.

Below is the third video from the 2020 INSIGHT program: Expand Your Horizons. In this video, I share real-life examples of what happens when we let go of our preconceived ideas about ourselves and venture into unchartered territories.

“Our personality is not fixed; our potential is not fixed; our ability to have new thought & fresh ideas about ourself is not fixed.”

What if the only thing between you and having a whole new experience of who you can be is an illusion of thought?
