Limited Thinkers Are Limited Achievers.
Limited – Confined within a boundary. Characterized by an inability to think imaginatively or independently.
Think- To employ one’s mind rationally and objectively in evaluating or dealing with a given situation.
Achieve – To get or attain by effort; gain; obtain. Carry through. Accomplish.
Do you find yourself using limiting thoughts such as: “That was a stupid thing I did”, “I’m so dumb”, or “I could never be smart enough or dedicated enough to do that”?
If you have a tendency to have these types of limiting thoughts, you are unconsciously limiting your expectations and thus your ultimate outcomes.
If you lay out positive, non-limiting expectations, you will be working toward and ultimately achieving positive, nonlimiting outcomes.
I want you to write down 5 examples of “limiting” thoughts you have had, or that you have from time to time. Think of personal “failures” which you believe have resulted from those “limiting” thoughts.
Lastly, write down 5 positive thoughts you have from time to time. Think of personal accomplishments you that have resulted from those positive thoughts.
Can you see the difference?
If you want to achieve, you need to learn to accentuate your positive expectations and eliminate the negative ones.
My next post will talk about being “realistic” . . .
As you meditate upon this thought, ask yourself the following questions:
- How has limited thinking hurt you in the past?
- How might positive, unlimited thinking help you in the future?
