Monday 8th November 2004 - Limitations....

Thinking about limitations - are we limited by our circumstances or are we merely limited by our own minds???

I tend to swing between believing one then the other... how do we break out of our old limiting beliefs and thought patterns and free ourselves up to achieve anything?

I think the thing which holds most of us back from taking risks is fear - fear of failure, fear of criticism, fear of putting yourself in a vulnerable or financially insecure position, fear of what if... even fear of success and having to live up to it. I know that fear is something which has held me back....

Low self esteem is the other common limitation just think what a happier world it would be if everyone brought their children up to believe in themselves, to feel loved and supported and brave enough to take risks without feeling they would be letting someone down if they failed.
