You Are Limitless
Can you recall a time in your life when your dreams were as big as the world - to a time when you didn't know the word impossible?
Just like me, I'm sure you had some pretty amazing dreams. But somehow as we grew up and became adults, our lives designed us instead of us designing our lives. And we don't usually realize this has happened until we are completely burdened and overwhelmed with commitments and responsibilities and screaming, "How did I end up here!"
But you know what? You are limitless. You do not have to live burdened and overwhelmed. You are capable of being and doing anything you decide to be and do. You were created to thrive. You were created to be pliable. You can implement changes in your own life. You were, after all, created to not only have life, but have life abundantly. To accept this life of abundance – this life of limitlessness - simply plant these three seeds in your life.
PLANT SEEDS OF GOOD CHEER
Everything that happens in life happens because of a thought. Our thoughts become our actions and our actions become our destiny. Plant seeds of change by changing your thoughts and speech. Forgive those that have hurt you, let go of others' viewpoints, end friendships that do not help you prosper, leave a job that makes you miserable, and reprogram cultural programs you have been fed.
Think on things that are good. Think on things that serve you well. Speak words from a kind and loving heart. Be gracious and merciful and show gratefulness in everything. The more you focus on being grateful, the more changes you'll see in your perception of the world and your life. The more work you do to lighten your heart, the more joy you will begin to feel in your soul.
PLANT SEEDS OF SERVICE
When you start serving others without expecting anything in return, you receive complete, genuine satisfaction in your soul. You can serve others by teaching, sharing your knowledge, providing resources, mentoring, or motivating and inspiring others. Once you start looking at how you can make a bigger impact in others' lives, you'll feel more joy and happiness in your own life and then things that stop you from pushing yourself further will fall away.
PLANT SEEDS OF ABUNDANCE
Life as you know it does not have to continue as life as you know it. You are full of untapped potential. You are full of untapped awesomeness. You were created to not only have life, but have life abundantly. It's yours for the taking; you just have to choose to take it. And you choose it by the thoughts and actions you have. Decide what you want your life to be and go design it. Don't listen to others who are not where you want to be. Believe in your worth and believe in who you were created to be.
