Remove the limits from your thinking and experience more of what life has to offer.
I had a conversation with my sister a while ago and we was talking about our goals, and you know the things we are focused on. During that conversation, I remember placing a limit on what I could achieve. Now of course, we may have targets to work towards, but we should always acknowledge and know we have the ability to go beyond what’s in front of us and that target.
It can be so easy to place a limit on ourselves, but the key is to be so in tune with our thoughts and mind that when it happens its something we recognise and pick up on in an instant. Whilst it takes time and practice to get to that point, it has the ability to serve us well in the long run.
With that in mind let’s dive into five tips on how to remove the limits from your thinking.
Build Your Level Of Awareness
This is simply digesting your thoughts and words. Just like we do with food because our thoughts and words feed our mind, spirit and soul. Take a moment to reflect and ensure that whatever it is that you’ve spoken over your life, is in tune and aligned to where you want to be.
This is something I’ve learnt to do and whilst I do have my moments where I feel down and demotivated, I have to remind myself that “Danielle, you’ve got this.”
Open Yourself Up To Everything That Is Due To You
Are you open to receiving or do you ever feel like your undeserving? I will say to myself “my capacity is large enough to receive everything God has for me” because there is no limit to what I can do, become or have. Blessings come to is in different shapes and sizes and they enter our life with a purpose, always keep that in mind as a reminder.
Focus On Your Strengths Instead Of Your Weaknesses
The “what do you think your weaknesses are?” question drives me insane and it’s a question that tends to come up as part of an interview. Now I get it, an employer needs to have an understanding of what a person isn’t great at, but that should bare no relevance on the outcome unless it’s something that is required as a core component for the role.
Whilst it’s important to be aware of our weaknesses, none of us are perfect and it’s our strengths that serve us in everyday life. Therefore, when we focus on the things that we are good at and delegate what we are not so good at, it increases our level of confidence. Spending our time, energy and effort mastering our strengths is what leads to an unlimited number of possibilities.
There are things I don’t enjoy doing or don’t have enough know how to do so I pass those things onto those who do them better than me.
This is about having self-belief, knowing that you can achieve everything you put your mind to. Because as Napoleon Hill once said, “Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, the mind can achieve.” When a person doesn’t have that belief, it’s like they dim the light that is within, and is meant to shine outwards onto those they come into contact with.
Acknowledge And Use Your Internal Resources
Utilise the experience, gifts and talents you’ve been blessed with and I want to share an example with you. My career background is in Human Resources and I’m the Founder of Brands of Colour which I launched in 2016. Due to that, I had to put other stuff I was doing before that on a back burner and really look at my experience, gifts and talents to create more income.
For example, I use my expertise in HR by carrying out contracts through my company to manage and deliver specific projects. I share this with you because whilst it may not be my number one passion, it is one of my strengths and generates revenue. If I just ignored it, I would be placing a limit on my income.
Do an audit of your experience, gifts and talents and use what you have to generate wealth and serve others where you have the ability to do so.
Take Advantage Of Opportunities
Seize opportunities that come your way and challenge yourself to do the things that make you uncomfortable, but you know that if you done them it would support your growth and propel you further than where you are right now.
Remove the limits from your thinking today, because nothing is impossible. It’s the limits we place on our way of thinking that make things appear impossible.
