Be a No-Limit Person starting Now
Teach yourself: “everything that makes me feel inadequate results from my perceptions of what’s out there.”
The difference between being a No-Limit Persona and feeling frustrated, resentful, unhappy and neurotic is not because you have problems.
We have to deal with sickness, getting older, our children disappointing us.
So keep reminding yourself: I CANNOT always control what goes on outside.
But I CAN always control what goes on inside.
Start making good choices
Don’t ever forget that you are the sum total of the choices you make. And stop making excuses for bad choices. Are you shy? Nervous? Scared to get up in front of a group? Afraid to speak out? Do you get angry too much?
1. Anything inside that immobilizes me, gets in my way, keeps me from my goals, is all MINE.
2. I can throw it away IF I CHOOSE.
3. Take some risks and stop worrying.
And start listening to those inner signals that help you make the right choices – no matter what anyone thinks. The next time you get nervous about others’ opinions, look them mentally in the eye and say: “What you think of me is none of my business.”
4. Expect to stay healthy.
It’s amazing how expectations affect not only your life but your health. You get a sniffle and say: “Oh boy, here it comes. Tomorrow it’ll be in my chest and the next day a fever, and I’ll have to miss work.” Or you can say: “I don’t want this. I’ll get some extra rest, keep active, not focus on this, just not let it get in my way.” You can set yourself up to be sick or you can CHOSE to stay well!
5. Take charge of your feelings and regain control of your life.
People who panic or get depressed usually do so because they have lost control – they give up responsibility for how badly they feel.
Because it’s easier to let others take charge of your life and blame them for your troubles than to say, “I created these feelings myself.”
6. Live this day as if it were your last.
A lot of people have bumper stickers that say, “This is the first day of the rest of your life.” I prefer to think, “This is the last day of my life. And I am going to live it as if I didn’t have any more.” Because the truth is, I don’t. And you don’t. The past is over and gone. The future is not guaranteed. We all know someone – our own age – who was killed in an accident, or dropped dead of a heart attack. So, if you get nothing else out of this, keep this one idea in your mind and Stop acting as if life is a rehearsal.
