Limitless Monday – How to tap into your limitless potential

And eradicate your limiting beliefs

The majority of us have one or more limiting beliefs. The saying goes: know your limitations. But in reality, you are never going to actually know your limitations unless you test them first.

Normally, we underestimate our abilities. If pushed, by some force or factor, we can usually achieve a lot more than we initially thought possible. Many of us sell ourselves short. We assume our limitations are many, and our abilities are far below what we consider an acceptable standard. We also forget that with practice our abilities increase exponentially.

Take a short language course and see how much you understand compared to your very first lesson. Learn a martial art for six months, and compare how your body and mind has transformed from the first day you stepped onto the mat.

The problem is, we either don’t pursue the challenges we dream of, or we give up way too early. We use the stress we feel when undertaking a new challenge as an excuse to withdraw from the venture.

Most of us are in the habit of setting the bar too low and not pushing ourselves. We readily accept mediocrity and our current place in the world even though we are not satisfied with our situation.

We fail to understand that we are going to be having some serious regrets when the death bed test arrives. And to be sure, it will arrive. There will be no second chances then!

A few years ago, I went on a self-help type retreat called the Hoffman Process. No cell phones, no alcohol, and no exercise were permitted. It didn’t sound like much fun, especially when I was introduced to a room mate.

However, the people I cared the most about convinced me that the weeks-long course was essential to ‘sort me out’.

One of the early challenges we were set was to think of something that would stretch us, and try it as soon as the course ended.

Whether it was being kind to ourselves, speaking to others more respectfully, being bold, or following a challenge. I chose to learn how to dance tango and quickly booked a ticket to Cuba.

When we stretch ourselves, we are saying to ourselves: I have to do this, forget the perceived limitations. You quickly discover that anything is possible, although you obviously experience resistance at the beginning, but like anything, the more you practice, the easier it becomes.

What is the definition of a limiting belief?

A limiting belief is a belief about oneself or the world that constrains personal growth and success. It’s often a negative thought pattern that holds individuals back from realizing their full potential.

Have a think about a few limiting beliefs that you hold.

Maybe it’s your ability to learn a new language, date a particular person, land a certain job, master a particular sport, make a million dollars, run your own business, hold down a long term relationship, or become a social media influencer.

In order to break through our limiting beliefs, a shift in thinking is required.


Firstly, we must believe that anything is possible. Secondly, we must understand that nothing is predetermined. You must drop any ideas that you are not worthy, and that luck plays a part in your life. You must also ban the word ‘can’t’ from your vocabulary.

Today I would like you to make a commitment to yourself. Identify a stretch you wish to pursue. Something that is going to improve your life in some way.

Next, write it down. Finally, take action; take that first step today, it doesn’t matter how small.

And remember, you are capable of anything you set your mind on. Today is day one.

Happy Monday!
