Have you ever told yourself that you couldn’t do something? We’re stuck within our context, not able to go beyond it and experience the endless possibilities that lay outside of it. In Robert Kiyosaki’s book “Retire Young, Retire Rich”, he describes our context as a drinking glass. Once we fill that drinking glass to the top, we can’t put anymore in, it begins to overflow. This is how our context is limiting us, once we’ve reached the limit of our context, or what we believe is possible, we’re unable to accept any more content. To increase our understanding, we need to maintain an open mind and replace our drinking glass with a pitcher. In this example we see how our own limitations, or glass, can hold us back from being able to get where we want to. If you wanted to become a marathon runner, but whenever you try to run you get tired after the first half a mile, we have a tendency to think that we can’t do it. Once you place that thought in your mind that you can’t do something, your limitations have already won. I want you to strike the words “I can’t” from your vocabulary. If you replace “I can’t” with “How can I?” you begin to see a possibility laid out before you. If you refuse to accept your limitations then you can always find a way to reach your desired destination. Life doesn’t have to be hard, the hardest thing in life is overcoming your own self-imposed limitations. Once you start asking yourself how you can, you find that doing is the easiest thing possible.
