You wouldn’t say but in life the only barriers we come across are the ones we set for ourselves.
We limit ourselves because we either tell ourselves that it won’t work (whatever “it” is – usually it’s guidance from God) in anyways even before we actually tried it or we get concerned about what the other person would say of thing about us as we strive for what we want.
Most of the life transforming, income generating, perfect relationship building, physical health stimulating, career advancing ideas never materialize because they only happen in the mind.
I’ve come to see that the only thing responsible for my success, or lack thereof, is my limiting thinking and limiting beliefs on how I should or shouldn’t go about becoming a success, a high achiever.
We must find a way around these limiting beliefs and one way to do this is through action.
“Feel the fear and do it anyway.” – Susan Jeffers
Another way of breaking through the concerns we have taught ourselves to accept is to imagine it going the way we would want it.
This reminds of the coach telling some footballer in the movie Any Given Sunday that he must see it before he does it, “See it before you do it!”
‘Cause you see what’s cool about that – emotional, vivid, clear, sensory visualization – is that if you do it well and often enough, you become an expert in something that you haven’t done at a physical level.
An expert in your own mind. And once you own it here *pointing at head* then the next level of existence is its materialization.
Imagine and imagine and imagine it until we have the confidence to doing it on the physical plane.
I also found that one needs courage to even begin to apply the steps I offered above, but then again we have God as a resident cheerleader for that exact reason.
Ask God for guidance and the courage and strength to act on that guidance. Jesus did, and look what a difference we are told he made – and still is, making in the world.
