Overcoming Limitations

Updated on October 1, 2012

Look within

There are too many people walking around with self imposed limitations. Somehow a thought has been lodged in their minds that prevents them from extraordinary achievements. Most people don't realize that they are being held back by a simple thought in their mind. It may have come from family, the education system, so-called experts, friends, past negative experiences or the media. It has been said that the truth will set you free. The purpose of this hub is to set you free!

Free Yourself

In order to free yourself, you must take an honest look at yourself. What would you like to accomplish? Write down exactly what you want. Ask yourself what is required to attain whatever it is that you want. What type of person must you become to receive what you want? Look at the people who have already achieved what you desire. What qualities do they have? What training do they have? What kind of professionals are working with them to help them achieve their goals? What do you need? Is it more information, more training, better contacts?

Good News

Your mind is so powerful that nobody can stop you! Your success will depend on your thoughts, your training, your plans, your imagination, your feelings and your determination. You must have a vision of where you want to go. Then you must train yourself with information or get professional training. Write up flexible plans. Gather as many facts as you can. In every field there is the truth and the lies. You must be able to make sound decisions based on the truth. If you are going into a career where the people that you need are not easy to locate, you can overcome that situation with your imagination. Write down the type of professional that you need; manager, agent, investor, business partner, it does not matter. You can list every possible way to meet the right person. You can search the internet, books, television credits, lectures, workshops, professional occupation lists, newpapers, magazines, the library, movies etc. Talk with people in that field. Find the right organizations. Ask for recommendations. Call or email people to set up interviews every week. Find the names of representatives of the most successful people. If you still cannot locate the right person, try this method. At night, as you drift off to sleep, repeat to yourself a statement such as, "I easily attract the best (example associate) (say the title of the person you need) into my life. I am perfectly guided to meet the right person now. " Repeat the statement silently or aloud every night. Sooner or later the right idea will come to you. You will be lead to the correct information, the right person or the correct procedure to meet the person. Be ready to introduce yourself to new people all the time. You have to be your own promoter. Two of the biggest obstacles are not knowing the right people and not knowing what to do next. You can use this method to overcome both of these obstacles. Ask your mind for the right steps, then follow the intuitive leads. If you make a mistake, accept it as a learning experience and keep moving forward. You must stay focused and you must have determination. Don't let anyone's opinion, negative attitude or rejection stop you. If you receive constructive criticism, use it. If a person is just being uncooperative, simply overlook it and keep searching for the right people. In life, some people will help you, and some won't for whatever reasons. Don't get down in the dumps or upset about it. It's not the end of the world. Keep your sense of humor and enthusiam. You can increase your success by affirming that you can easily persuade everybody. You may not sell everybody but you will have a higher rate of success. If someone does not buy from you, quickly move on to the next person or opportunity. Never forget that you have the power. A lot of people seeking help from others think that they are at their mercy. The other person may have money and influence, but they are not the only one. When I say you have the power, I am saying that you have the product or service and you have the freedom to choose another company, associate, representative, partner or client. There are millions of people who will help you. Business people and investors always want to make more money and they are looking for good ideas. Just keep this in mind when you are seeking help from others.


Take the risk

You must take chances in life. The problem with most people is fear. Fear may be an inner warning that you are really not prepared. Do not deceive yourself, be prepared. You must be able to sell yourself, your ideas or your service. If you don't know how to sell, train yourself with books, courses, the internet, cds and dvds. Business relationships run much smoother if you understand people and you know how to persuade them to help you. If you have the correct preparation, ask yourself why are you afraid. Are there unknown factors involved? Trust issues? Whatever fear that you have you can overcome it. It's really a matter of training yourself. You can buy books or find tons of information on the internet on the subject of overcoming fears or you can hire professionals. Find out what works best for you. Whatever you do, don't let fear stop you. Ultimately, it's just a concept floating around in you. Some people have set themselves free with a simple affirmation repeated frequently over time. Find a way to overcome whatever appears to be stopping you.

Keep Growing

Never stop improving yourself, collecting facts and wisdom. No one book or person has all the answers. Actually that is a good thing. It adds to the exploration and adventure. Whatever you do, become a master. Be one of the best, if not the best. Yes, I said the best. Many people shy away from powerful affirmations and declarations that will propel them to the top. The people at the top are thinking thoughts that the average person would never dare think. There are no laws against thinking highly of yourself, your products or your talents. In fact, if you don't, you can never become the best. It has been said that if you don't think highly of yourself, your products or your talents, no one else will. Never stop feeding your mind with powerful thoughts. The higher your thoughts, plans and actions, the higher you will go. You must also be able to make adjustments. There are many people who practice the copycat technique. This happens with products and talents. As soon as they see somebody winning, they jump in with a similar or better product. You see this all the time with technology. We are at the point where no one can just coast without making adjustments. If you don't improve your products or services, somebody else will grab the market and take the dollars in their direction. Just be aware but not worried. Ideas are infinite. Never think that ideas are limited. You can always come up with better ideas. If you are temporarily blocked, look for inspiration. Collect more ideas and make new combinations. Everything you need is available. All you have to do is look for it.
