What does it mean to limit ourselves? What does it mean to place them upon ourselves?
When we have limited ourselves, we have decided that we are only capable of so much, that we can only go so far, and that we only have a restricted set of abilities.
What made us decide this? Where did we get these ideas? Often we develop them without any trials or proof. They are based in fear or failure, in messages we have been given growing up, or because we have let others limits rub off on us.
The fact of the matter is this, no one can limit you, but you. No boss, no teacher, no partner, no colleague. We know our abilities and our worth, and is we are willing to work for them, great things are possible.
So some advice on how to stop limiting ourselves comes from those who refused to let it happen to them.
