Your Biggest Roadblock

Is you.

There are good limits. The limits you describe to yourself and the ones others approve of when you tell them.

”I can’t do this because I don’t have enough time.”

And then there are real limits.

”I can’t do this because I’ve got to look after my father.”

Relationships with loved ones and health issues are the only real limits.

Everything else can be boiled down to one thing.

You.

Not enough time is the excuse the poor decision maker uses.

Not enough resources is the excuse the poor man makes instead of making do or changing perspective. You don’t have to be wealthy to be rich.

Look in the mirror, that’s your biggest roadblock. Look in your eyes. Who’s holding you back?

Be honest.

If it’s a close loved one. Tell them what you’re feeling. “I need to do this because it’s the thing in my gut and my soul and my brain that feels right.”

They’ll get behind you. And if they don’t, that’s a relationship you’ll have to reconsider. Or ignore them and do the thing you want to do anyway.

I’m coming off the end of a 4-day fast. If you had told me a year ago, I’d go 4-days without eating a single calorie, I’d laugh at you.

The only thing holding me back was my anticipation of what could wrong. Rather than believing in what could go right.

It turned out to be one of the best experiences I’ve ever had. This is how the story goes. The hard parts are the ones you remember.

Most of life is getting out of your own way.
