Do you Believe that your Potential is Limited in any way?

It is mistakenly believed that your potential is limited by your current abilities, knowledge, skills or even your current circumstances, whereas, in reality, your limits only exist within your own self-imposed comfort zone and restrictive beliefs. You can completely remove any perceived limits and swim in the sea of abundance, which flows all around you, if you are able to believe in yourself and build a crystal clear picture in your mind about all the possibility, which exists all around you.

Your Mind Does not come with a user’s Manual

Napoleon Hill once said:

 “Whatever the mind can conceive and believe, it can achieve

Your mind is the most incredible and powerful tool available to you as you travel down the path towards the success you desire. If understood and used correctly, it will deliver literally everything you can imagine to you. All that you need to do is believe with absolute conviction that it is possible for you and then you must commit to take inspired goal specific action daily and a world of possibility opens up to you.

Henry Ford said:

Whether you think you can or think you can’t, both ways you are correct

A great example of the power of the mind is shown in this story.

Doctors in Texas, studying the effectiveness of arthroscopic knee surgery, assigned patients with damaged, painful or worn-out knees, who agreed to participate in the test, one of three different surgical procedures. They either scraped the knee joint, just washed it out with saline or did nothing. During the procedure, where the doctors did nothing, they actually made an incision and pretended to have carried out the procedure on the patients.

Two years later the patients who never received any treatment at all, or who just had their knees washed out with saline, but believed that they had been operated on, showed exactly the same improvement as the patients, who had actually had their knees operated on. The patient’s brains expected the surgery to have helped and to have improved their condition and so it did. This process shows the existence of expectancy theory. If you really believe that you can do something, you believe it is possible and you expect it to happen, it is very likely that it will.

What do you see as possible in your future right now? It is very unlikely that you will ever exceed your own expectations about what you believe is possible for you to achieve. So if you want to begin the journey towards super achievement, it starts right now, by you allowing yourself to dream once again and to give yourself permission to have huge expectations about what is possible for you. You are truly magnificent, now it is up to you to believe it and you will finally start to achieve it. Create an expectation about what you believe is possible for you and according to the expectancy theory, your mind will eventually make it possible for you.

Dare to Dream Big

Bruce Lee was arguably one of the greatest martial artists of all time. He understood the value of dreaming big and having huge expectations. When I visited Planet Hollywood in New York City a few years ago, I saw a letter written by Bruce Lee in 1970. In the letter Bruce wrote, as follows: “By 1980 I will be the best known oriental movie star in the United States and will have secured $ 10 million dollars. In return I will give the best acting I could ever give, every single time I am in front of the cameras and I will live in peace and harmony”. Despite his life being cut short, he managed to realise all his goals in far less than the ten years he thought it would take. Are you dreaming really big dreams and taking inspired action every day to make them real for you?

It is seldom, if ever, that anyone exceeds their own belief in their potential or their own vision of possibility. You will never rise above the image you hold in your mind about what is possible for you. So in reality you can and will only ever live the vision you have of what is possible for you.

In fact the life you are living right now is exactly what you have envisioned in the past, as being possible for you. The subconscious belief and picture, which you hold in your mind right now, has shaped who you are and will continue shaping who you will become. How you see yourself or the vision you hold of your potential is exactly what will turn up in your life. Don’t you think it is time you stopped leaving this to chance and you finally made the conscious decision and put in the effort to picture the actual future you want?
