Alphabet soup for the soul vol.2 -“U”

U is for Unlimited

“Our only limitations are the ones we set up in our own minds “– Napolean Hill-

When we push ourselves to the limit, we will find out that we can go a bit further.  It’s how we evolve and adapt.

Let’s use running as the example (again). If you run for 20 mins because that’s the limit you set for yourself then the opportunity for growth and adaptation comes in the 21st minute.

You do one more minute because you can. Because you know it’s all a mind game and what happens is, just like a dog being trained to sit, you train your mind to become the body and go a tiny bit further. It’s what we are born to do.

Expand, evolve and adapt. The only reason we think we can’t do something is that in our mind (not in the physical world) we are telling ourselves we can’t.

If we tell the mind to shut up then what we will discover is that we can do way more than we ‘think’.

 And, the most magical part of this process is that when we push ourselves to that breaking point and go past it, the doubts that were originally there disappear and vanish into thin air.

Another reason this is so powerful is that we will start to silence the doubts that arise in the future because we now have evidence that it’s possible. Possible because we have already done it once. Just like the four-minute mile was a wall, a mind barrier until that veil was lifted by Roger Bannister. The first one to run a sub-four-minute mile but look how many followed in his footsteps, literally.

 If you take away one message from this article let it be that “it’s possible”.

That is the ultimate starting point, knowing that it is possible. Work on your belief system until possible is part of your vocabulary and you can truly do anything.
