Think of all the success in the world, what does it look like? I know one thing is for sure, it does NOT look like this:
Success is not quantified. There is not a set amount that has to be allocated to everyone in the world. You don’t have to wait for someone to die, someone to fail, or someone to lose for you to find success. One individual’s success does not result in less for you. Contrary to the popular belief in the world, that is not the way it is!
There is No Shortage of Success
Instead of one pie for the world, there is one pie for each person that will continually refill itself if you keep eating it. That is the key right there, the amount of success you experience in your life is equal to the amount you dish up. The more you work for, the more you’ll get. This is a perspective change that must happen if you want to Nix Your Limits. A limit that too many people put on themselves is that there isn’t any success waiting for them, that there are already too many successful people out there. Because they did, doesn’t mean you can’t. Because they did, means so can you!
Go All In With Your Dreams
If there truly is no shortage in success, then there is absolutely no reason to short yourself when going after your dreams! Too long have we been told to be conservative in our goals, to simply “get a good job”. You will never realize how far you can go if you never pursue the highest goals you can think of. Stop putting limits on yourself and your future! Think about this: “Shoot for the stars. Even if you miss, you’ll land among the stars.” -Brian Littrell. As Grant Cardone once put it (pictured here), would you rather fall short of $1,000,000 or $10,000? Go big, and you just might get there.
Don’t Underestimate the Effort Required
If go all-in with your goals, you better know that you are going to have to go all-in with your effort as well. You can’t dream big and work average. Because you know that there is no shortage to success, and that you have given yourself permission to dream as big as you can, you can be 100% committed to your purpose. If you are 100% committed, you have to give all you have to accomplishing it. Too many people who at one point had dreamed big, excused away the high expectations because the little effort they gave, or high effort for only a short amount of time, as too hard or unrealistic. Don’t let that be you. Learn from their mistakes, and more importantly, focus on learning from those who succeeded. Don’t worry so much about the statistics of the average or that is all you will become. Focus on the stats of the greats, and you soon will be joining them in the ranks.
Free yourself of the limits that your community, your friends, your family, or your own doubts have put upon you. Adopt the Nix Your Limits Mindset and you will aim great, work great, and be great.
