One of the things that you should be mindful of when driving is the Speed Limit. If you go too slowly, people tend to pass you. If you go too fast, the police are sure to get involved to enforce the “rules”. They will penalize you for exceeding what someone has established as a limit for you to drive. This could mean fines, jail time, etc.
This is similar to the situations that happen in your life. How many times have you obeyed the limits that someone else has placed on your life? You know, in truth…we all are striving in life to achieve something – we are all driving somewhere. However, if you are not careful, other people’s imposed limits will stop you from achieving what you want to achieve.
One thing we know about other people is that they will judge you. They judge you based on what you do or say. In fact, they judge you based on what you don’t do or don’t say. People set limits on you by telling you that you can’t do something. That you can’t achieve something. That you can’t go somewhere. That you’re not good enough. Whatever it is, trust me, it’s been said – to someone, somewhere.
As human beings, we are God’s greatest earthly creation. We have the ability to focus on things and literally bring them into reality. This goes for mental things as well as physical things. To rise above limits and to become the strongest version of ourselves, we have to stop empowering other people’s judgements by focusing on their empty words. We have to start taking full responsibility for our lives. Not only our actions, but our thoughts as well. Your thoughts control you…and when you let a person set a limit to your thoughts, then that person is actually controlling you.
Think about this, someone’s opinion of you only becomes your reality if you focus your energy on what they say. Focus is the answer to protecting your power that others are always trying to steal from you. Never let a person take away what is rightfully yours. Your life is your life.
Inspired Visions’ Point of Power: Use your power to turn the limits that other people set for you into your pedestal for greatness.
