Take the limits off.
My son loves reading and from time to time I give him books to read out loud. One evening I gave him a book to read, without opening the book he handed it back to me and simply told me he cannot read it. I asked him why he thought he could not read it, he pointed to the number two written on top of the book, he said ” it is for second graders and I am not in second grade yet”. I carefully explained what the number meant and encouraged him to open the book and read the first page, he read the entire book.
Just like a simple number on a book made my son believe he cannot read a book he can confidently read, there are many times situations around you paint the wrong picture of you in your mind. Have you ever heard something like, you can never make that team you are too short! You can’t accomplish your dreams, you are too old! Whatever you may have been told, my objective with this post is to encourage you to take those limits off.
Someone may have reminded you of a fact you are already aware of, choose not to allow that fact to limit you from going after your dreams. If you decide not to go after your dreams now because you are old, two years from now you are two years older and still very far from where you want to be. Don’t allow anything or anyone to place a limit on you, you have so much in you and can accomplish whatever you set your heart to do. Go for your dreams!
