Another great contribution from our friend Tony Merlo from Detroit, Michigan.
Enjoy and stay wide awake my friends.
Raise your Limit
This year I am making a conscious effort to raise the limit of happiness and success that I am allowing for myself. Many times we are our own biggest obstacle for being happy. We have a perception of how happy we are supposed to be, how successful we are supposed to be or how financially well off we think we deserve. Many times these have been built in to us by the way we are raised, or the people that are in our circle. How many times have things just started to really look good and then suddenly, out of nowhere, something happens that brings us crashing back down? Our thought and belief system is what is creating our reality. When we cross the threshold of what we have accepted before, many times being out of that comfort level causes us to retreat to the known, even if the “known” is a negative experience.
Make an agreement with yourself to allow yourself to try something new. Starting today, allow yourself 10 minutes of time before you go to sleep to imagine what your life would be like if you gave yourself a higher limit. What would your life be like if you let yourself be an even better musician, artist, athlete etc. What would your life be like if you had more money? As you start visualizing it and feeling yourself open to the idea, you will probably notice yourself pulling you back. That is fear. Give yourself the chance to let that fear go. Let yourself exist in that world in your mind. The next day that you try this you will find that the fear becomes less, and the next time even less....Soon you will feel comfortable with this new reality, and that is exactly when you will start to see it actually happen.
What do you want your new Limits to be?
