Break The Chains of Limitation

  1. Be open-minded and a little spontaneous. When a setback happens (and it will), search for the lesson to be learned or a new opportunity. Life is less about what happens to you and more about how you react and move forward. This is not a talent. It’s a skill that takes time. You CAN teach yourself to see opportunity in adversity.
  2. Take your goals one step at a time. A big chain of limitations is comparing yourself with others. You might just be getting started, and someone else may have put the effort in for months or years. Take YOUR goal and break it down into achievable steps. Be purposeful. You can eat an elephant one bite at a time.
  3. Another limitation is time management. If you manage your time better, you can avoid having to sacrifice. For me, I take advantage of my phone’s calendar app. Everything goes in it- even if it is something that only takes 5 or 10 minutes. If it’s not in there, it doesn’t happen. If it is in there, I’m able to use my time wisely. Find what works for you and stay consistent.
  4. Rid yourself of the “all or nothing” mentality. Incorporate the word ‘and’ into your vocabulary. Instead of assuming you must cut out something in your life to make room for your goal, find a way to do both. It might mean 80% less time playing golf AND more time working on your hustle, but you don’t need to stay away from the things your love for good. You can play golf AND spend time achieving your goals.
