Our Limitations Are Just Habits

Written by  Anthony Meindl

It’s easy to get lost in our own ‘world’. When tragedies like tsunamis, earthquakes, wars, and famine occur – it puts our own mental stuff into context and we realize that most of the limitations we put on ourselves aren’t limitations; they’re habits.

We take them on as truth because we’ve been thinking them for such a long time that they become part of our neurological wiring.

But repetitive thought doesn’t make something truthful. It just makes it a belief.

So change the belief and your world will change.

The DALAI LAMA says that, “Human life is rare and precious. Do not make it a cause of pain.”

It’s such a simple benediction.

When you contextualize your life – really begin to see it in relation to the entire universe we’re living in – you may realize that you simply have no more time to waste doing things, talking about things, and believing thing that don’t make you happy.

The writer/philosopher, RICHARD BACH, once said, “Argue for your limitations and you get to keep them.”

The more you talk about and give energy to your limitations, the more you complain about them and make them the predominant focus of your life, the more you experience them in your life.


So change the channel your system is tuned into.

Turn it to channel “WINNING.“
