“We may want to love other people without holding back, to feel authentic, to breathe in the beauty around us, to dance and sing. Yet each day we listen to inner voices that keep our life small.” Tara Brach
Living life without limits is not just for the few it is for everyone. Nearly everyone is struggling with some aspect of life. It might be financial, relationship, career, wellness, health, friends, family, or something that is sucking the life out of them. Maybe you know of someone who feels their life is being sucked out of them. What are they telling you?
Are they telling you how miserable life is and there is nothing that can be done to make life better. Their life is bad so their goal is to gain sympathy from someone else, someone who will agree with them that life is just miserable.
Have you met someone who is overwhelmed with life, with the daily grind of life? Maybe their career is not even close to what they really want to do so they suffer day after day earning enough that it keeps them locked into work they really hate. Each day they attempt to put on a happy face and walk into their place of employment with a little less energy than they had the day before. Who are they fooling with their less than optimal performance?
Life without limits means doing, being and living at what you are best at. It means allowing your strengths to be used fully and that you are passionate about what you are doing in life most of the time.
Let’s look at some ideas that John Maxwell shares with us that will help us live life without limits.
1. On Failing, Fail Forward – “‘Failing forward’ is the ability to get back up after you’ve been knocked down, learn from your mistake, and move forward in a better direction.”
2. Quit at the right time – “When to quit: (1) Quit something you don’t do well to start something you do well. (2) Quit something you’re not passionate about to do something that fills you with passion. (3) Quit something that doesn’t make a difference to do something that does.”
3. Forge a new attitude – “Whether you are eleven, forty-two, or sixty-five, your attitude toward life is still under construction. It’s never too late for a person to change his attitude.”
4. Be confident – “Affirmation from others is fickle and fleeting. If you want to make an impact during your lifetime, you have to trade the praise you could receive from others for the things of value that you can accomplish. You can’t be ‘one of the boys’ and follow your destiny at the same time.”
