Remove The Boundaries And Make Your Dreams A Reality
In 2013, in Oregon, teenage sisters Hanna (age 16) & Haylee (age 14) lifted a tractor to save their father pinned underneath.
In 2015, in St. John’s, Newfoundland, Nick Williams lifted a four-wheel-drive vehicle to save a young boy pinned beneath its tire.
In 2015, in Vienna, Virginia, Charlotte Heffelmire was able to momentarily use incredible strength to free her dad from a GMC pick-up truck.
The only thing limiting us in life is our belief that there are limits.
What do these three things have in common? They are what we call miracles, extreme feats of strength. Adrenaline on overload. What they demonstrate is that the rules, boundaries and limitations don’t exist. Why? Because we can blast through them, when we don’t stop to think about it. These examples show people that did something their mind’s would have told them was impossible. But because someone they loved was in danger, they did the impossible.
I don’t think people should have boundaries put on them, by themselves or society or another gender, because it is our birthright to experience life in whatever way we feel best suits us.

There was a commercial at Super Bowl XLIX for Always #LikeAGirl. In the video they have a woman show them what it was like to run like a girl, then a young teen, and preteen and little girl. The older girls ran in an unreal way that was weak and ineffective. The younger girls ran as fast as they could. The commercial highlighted the fact that women especially, when they hit puberty take in limitations to what they can do and be.
Our beliefs are just thoughts with emotions tied to them that we’ve taught ourselves to believe are true.

As teenagers, in order to fit in, we start holding back on what we can do. 75-80% of all negative thinking patterns come from negative beliefs that we make up about ourselves. When I started school, I was four years old, turning five in November and entered first grade, because my school didn’t have a kindergarten. So I was very small and always 1-2 years younger than everyone each grade. I was always last to be chosen for any sport activity and so I formed this belief that I wasn’t good at sports. Because of this belief I never tried to be good. To this day, I am not active in any sports. This is just a belief, and only my reality as long as I let it be.
Beliefs have the power to create ad the power to destroy. Human beings have the awesome ability to take any experience of their lives and create a meaning that disempowers them or one that can literally save their lives.

Ernestine Shepard, is a body builder. She believes that age is noting but a number. Because of that belief she is doing some amazing things. When she was 56 years old she decided to become a body builder. In 2010 she entered the Guinness Book of World Records as the oldest female body builder. Now almost 80 years old she is still going strong. She has been on Oprah and recognized throughout the world for what she is doing. She teaches an Energy Fitness Class at a gym. She has a video created by Prevention Magazine. She is an excellent example of it is never to late to take a negative belief about ourselves and break through the self imposed limitations with a new positive belief.
Don’t limit yourself. Many people limit themselves to what they think they can do. You can go as far as your mind lets you. What you believe, remember, you can achieve.
– Mary Kay Ash
All of us continue to allow limitations to rule our lives as adults. Some limiting beliefs are conscious and some unconscious. What we need to realize is that they are all just a belief of our imagination. At one time, the saying was man will never fly. If god had meant for man to fly he would have been given wings. But people like the Wright Brothers refused to allow that limiting belief hold them back from their dream. Your beliefs either challenge you to get creative. You allow your mind to rise up and create what is need to be successful. Failures come about because instead of rising up, our mind create road blocks of all of the reasons why it can’t possibly work or why we are not enough to make it happen. This path of limited thinking leads down into failure.
You can have anything you want, if you are willing to give up the belief that you can’t have it.

People with boundary problems usually have distorted attitudes about who is responsible for failures in their life. It is because our parents made mistakes in how we were raised. It is because we have relationships we are in right now don’t allow us the freedom we need to be successful. It is because we don’t have a college degree. It is because we are poor. It is because someone is out to get us at work. The excuses list could go on and on. The truth is that they have built boundaries all around them, painted themselves into the corner. The corner is limiting, but it feels safe. They lack the courage to step over the line and actually risk pursuing something they want. They are just plain afraid of any change in their life.
Boundaries are for those who are too afraid to take the leap.

If you accept a limiting belief, it will become your truth. What walls have you built over the door of opportunity that you are ready to blast into bits? What limiting belief are you ready to let go of?
Share with us your limiting belief that you are letting go of. Your share will help all of us to do the same.
