The Sky has never been the limit

Tuesday, July 02, 2013

What is our potential? It isn’t something that we are assigned like homework for school. Once you complete it… it’s done and now you have nothing else to do. Your potential is limitless!!

For those of us (myself included) who have doubts, who wonder why we are on this journey, who wonder can I do this?, who sometimes take one step forward and two steps back, who try and fail and try again only to fail again, who wonder is this worth it?…………..

Have you grown weary, have you grown complacent, have you just stopped trying? Have you accepted your life as it is simply because everyone else has accepted you the way you are? Are you happy this way? Are you the person you really want to be? If you are then that’s OK and you can top reading this. But we all have the potential to challenge ourselves to grown beyond our present circumstances. Potential is all that you can be, but have not yet become. It is all you can accomplish, but have not yet accomplished.

And that realistic goal and what is achievable is entirely up to you.

Marianne Williamson said – “Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate. Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure. It is our light, not our darkness, that most frightens us. We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be?”

You are all you can be. Go on and be it.

    Oh I love this blog! I used to be that person who had given up and then SP helped me to change my mind and try 'one more time'. Thank god I did, this journey has been life changing..
    The quote 'Do something today that your future self will thank you for' is one I will keep in my mind when feeling discouraged. So powerful...
    Also the quote by Babe Ruth speaks to me.
    Thank you for sharing this! emoticon emoticon

    Attitude is everything, and what you think becomes what you are. It can feel easier to take the low road, but when you take the high road, the empowerment you gain makes your whole outlook easier to live with. Carry on with the good stuff! emoticon

    I think of many of those words as I am working out, feeling stronger, quicker, and in less pain than I used to be. Turning back the clock and repairing my spacesuit for planet Earth! This body has to carry me around for the next 50 years so if I take care now, I hope it will last so that I can enjoy the rest of my life! Thanks for your inspiring blog! emoticon

    And finally we day we reach that goal and we still have to work at it. Why? At the point we reach the goal, we realize now we have new goals to achieve. The goal of maintaining what we've lost, the goal of challenging our bodies in new ways, the goal of living by example for those around us. You are so right on this!!! We always need to emoticon because WE are WORTH IT!

    So thought provoking and uplifting... really some good questions to ask yourself and really consider how you are answering them.

    In particular for me today: the Babe Ruth quote, "It is hard to beat a person that never gives up."

    So very true because eventually, you will master what it is you are trying to do!

    Thank you so much for sharing your thoughts with us!

    very true. We are afraid to let ourselves be healthy because we are so used to being the way we are. Are we afraid that we wil lose ourselves and who we are? Change is good and not anything to be afraid of. If anything, it will make us still ourselves but better. Keep pushing.
