How many of you are exactly where you dreamed you would be at this point in your life? How many of you woke up today and resisted getting up because you dreaded going into work? How many of you look forward to Friday and rebuke Monday? How many of you dream about what you want and who you could be only to wake up and continue to be exactly who you are?
If you fall into any or all of those categories, you’re not living life on your own terms.
To achieve greatness, you must have a NO Limit! Mindset. So keep these 10 things in mind:
1. “Rules” are for the people who made them
In life there are three types of people when it comes to rules:
Rule Makers – These people make and set the rules for everyone else to follow.
Rule Breakers – These are people who live to break every rule that has ever been made.
Rule Changers – These are the people who understand the rules, but know there has to be a better way to do things and they strive hard to find a better way of doing things to change the rules.
Which type of “Rule” person are YOU?
2. The only thing holding you back from anything is “You”
There are those people in this world who will always lay blame for every wrong in their life at the feet of something or someone else. Then there are those people who look internally.
If you want something in life, quit making excuses and Go Get It!! Don’t wait for someone or something to hand it to you, because that will never happen.
“Only you can hold yourself back. Only you can stand in your own way. Only you can help yourself.” – Mikhail Strabo
3. When you get knocked down (as we all do) get right back up and say “is that all you’ve got?”
Life is going to knock you down. Life isn’t going to be easy for you. You are going to have trials and tribulations in your life. You can either choose to be a victim and let that pull you down and kill you on the inside or, you can let that motivate you, make you stronger, and give you the intestinal fortitude you need to survive and win against all odds.
The choice is always yours to make.
4. Don’t let other’s define “You”
If you constantly live your life for your Dad, Mom, Sisters, Brothers, Wife, Husband, Kids, Grandparents, Friends, etc… “YOU” will never be happy in this life. Period.
It doesn’t matter what any of them tell you or say about you. If “you” don’t define who you are and what you stand for in this life YOU will never live your own life. People will always try to hold you down and try to keep you at their level. Don’t let them! Take charge of your own life and don’t ever forget that you are responsible for “you”.
5. Don’t expect anything from anyone but yourself
When it comes to getting what you want in life, you are the only person who you can truly count on in life. You are the only one who is responsible for your happiness. If you think other people or other things are going to bring you happiness or the things you want in life, you’re wrong.
Remember: “The only person or thing you are trying to be better than in this life is the person you were yesterday.”
6. Never quit on yourself
Basic human fact… People will quit on you. We are only human and there is only so much any person can take.
That being said and with this new knowledge why would “you” ever quit on yourself? It doesn’t matter how bad it gets, it doesn’t matter how alone you feel, it doesn’t matter if no one else believes in you or even likes you… Don’t EVER Quit On Yourself!!
And when you do find yourself in those dark moments (and they will happen) you look yourself in the mirror and repeat this:
“I will not quit on you ever!! I will not quit today or any other day!! This will not stop me!! I am here for a reason and I still have work to do!! I will not quit, EVER!!”
Say it until you believe it and know what you’re saying is true in your heart, mind and soul.
“Never give up. Today is hard, tomorrow will be worse, but the day after tomorrow will be sunshine.” – Jack Ma
7. Keep things simple
Why do we always have to make things so complicated? Any time you can break something down into smaller simpler pieces in your life, do it. You would be surprised at how much stress and pressure in your life would go away if you strive to make things simpler in your life.
8. When in doubt, take action
Some action is always better than no action at all. Most of us get stuck in life because we get wrapped up in this or that and once we get wrapped up in something we tend to forget to make any movement or any progress. If you’re scared of something, take action to overcome that fear. Don’t get stuck in life just because you are scared or refuse to take action. If you feel you should take action or think you should take action then DO IT.
9. Planning and taking action will help you destroy your fears
We all have fears and anyone who tells you they don’t is lying. One way to overcome your fears is to plan before hand what actions you will take when you’re afraid of something. When that fear does arise, and it’s ready to strike, you don’t have to sit, think or ponder about what you’re going to do because you already have the answer.
Believe in yourself, make a plan, then take action when it’s time.
10. Who has more “Heart” than you? … No One
Heart is what gets you out of bed in the morning when everyone else is still sleeping. Heart is what makes you get back up when you’ve been knocked down by life. Heart is what makes you look the doubters in the face and say “I Can, I Will, Watch me!” Heart is what separates the doers from the dreamers in this world. So live your life on your own terms.
There are no limits, just lack of will, vision and action
