Are Limiting Beliefs Holding You Back? Achieve Your Dreams By Expanding Your Vision of What's Possible

Updated on August 28, 2017

My greatest passion is empowering others to improve their quality of life and achieve their goals by choosing healthy thoughts and habits.

How Much Does Your Vision of What's Possible Shape Your Actions?

Your vision of what's possible is one of the number one variables that affects your actions and therefore the results you get in your life.

You might think that sounds crazy, but let me give you a simple example that will help to illustrate that this is more true than you think.

Let's say you have a dream of being able to spread your arms and fly around like a bird. My guess is that even though you dream of doing this, you would never jump off of your roof and try it, but why not?

The simple answer is that while you think it would be really cool to fly like a bird, you don't actually believe it's possible. Because it seems like this is an impossible feat, you will never jump off of a tall building or a cliff trying to fly like a bird.

On the other hand, you have likely heard a few stories in your lifetime about children who decide to jump off of something tall to see if they can fly. Why do children even attempt this dangerous stunt?

The answer to this question is just as simple. In their minds, there is a possibility that if they try to fly like a bird it might work. Because in their minds there's a possibility that it might work, they determine that it's worth a shot to try it out.

We just plain aren't willing to put forth effort and risk trying to do things that we don't think are possible. It's a waste of time and it could be outright dangerous in some situations.

Now going back to the example of flying like a bird, what if I told you that it is possible to stretch out your arms and fly?

You might think I'm crazy, but thanks to people who were willing to dream big and expand their vision of what's possible, wing suits were invented, and this adventure is a possibility for people who are brave enough to try it.

If you want to get a very precise insight on what you really think is possible, take a look at your life and evaluate what it's like. Your circumstances in life are always a reflection of what you think is possible for you.

Your vision of what's possible is the only space between your dreams and your reality.

Watch this man prove that it's possible for humans to soar through the sky like birds! Amazing!!!

With An Expanded Vision of What's Possible, You Are Ready to Turn Dreams Into Realities

Hopefully the example above was enough to stretch your vision of what's possible a little bit, and I hope you enjoyed that video. It gives me goosebumps every time I watch it.

Now that you have expanded your vision and have given yourself a little more room for possibilities, it's time to refocus on your dreams and get to work.

If you have a dream that really matters to you, it's absolutely worth whatever effort it takes to make it happen, but don't just assume that your dream is going to come easily.

When you are working towards a goal that many people would say is an impossible dream, you are going to come up against some obstacles.

People are going to doubt you, and you might even doubt yourself, but the key is to ignore the doubts, and do whatever it takes to make your dream a reality.

The video below is a perfect example of how a group of boys in Thailand ignored the people who taunted them, and put forth a lot of effort to turn their impossible dream into a reality.

I don't want to spoil the video for anybody, so if you want to watch the video, don't read the rest of this section. Just press play and prepare to be inspired!

Alright, hopefully the people who wanted to watch the video aren't reading anymore.

This video tells the story of a group of boys who dreamed of playing soccer but were unable to play, because they lived on a floating fishing village and there was literally nowhere to practice.

While getting taunted by the adults of the village, they form a team and eventually build a makeshift floating soccer pitch out on the water.

They practice in their bare feet on this little floating soccer pitch that has nails sticking out of it and dive off the edge to get the ball whenever it goes out of bounds.

Eventually, after years of practice this floating village becomes known across the country of Thailand for it's youth football club.

These boys appeared to have an impossible dream, and I'm sure that sometimes they had their own doubts as they were taunted by the people of their village, but they were willing to put forth the effort to make their dreams come true, and ended up having amazing results.

Watch this video and prepare to be inspired!

Go Out Into the World and Make Your Dreams Come True

Your dreams might not come easy, but with an expanded vision of what's possible and absolute dedication to do the work necessary to make your dreams become realities, you can make your biggest dreams come true.

If you have a dream that really matters to you, it's time for you to make it happen. Prove to the doubters that it can be done, and inspire the people around you to expand their vision of what's possible.

You will experience great satisfaction and joy as you achieve your dreams and empower others to do the same. It's not something that anyone else can do for you, but it will be totally worth whatever effort it takes on your part, so go out there and achieve your dreams!
