No Limits

 eagle

There are those among us who put things in clear focus even when not intending to.

I cross paths occasionally with a woman confined to a wheelchair. Several years ago, she lost the use of her legs due to a car accident. I chuckle over that word “confined” when I describe her because nothing could be further from the truth. The agility I witness as she opens doors and maneuvers corners and tight spaces puts me in a state of awe. She whizzes from here to there with that wheelchair like it’s an extension of her body . . . not a hindrance. Actually, it’s an extension of her spirit—free and determined.

And … AND, I might add, she does all that with a baby strapped to her chest!

The world sees her as confined. She doesn’t. Therefore, she isn’t.

My client Bob was just waking up to the fact of his wheelchair-less confinement. You can read about it  here.

If we believe we are confined in our life—in any way—we are.

 

What do you think? How do we needlessly limit ourselves?

    Our attitudes and beliefs limit us. What we think of, we create and who we think we are we become. If I think I can’t do it then I wont. If I think I can, then I will. Good post, Salee.

  2. Just recently I am reading The Four Spiritual Laws of Prosperity and an opportunity came up to further my yoga teacher career. Previously, I think I would have said NO due to some scheduling issues but instead I said, wait a minute, maybe YES! This has changed my mind about limits. No more AUTOMATIC NO when maybe it needs to be a YES!

What do you think?
