Life Without Limits

lim·i·ta·tion
noun
plural noun: limitations- limiting rule or circumstance; a restriction.

Working around the clock, cleaning the house, going to soccer practice, trips to the grocery store, shopping for clothes. . . It goes on and on and on. . . You are constantly doing something. So-called things that you are supposed to do. This is your life now. And your life has crafted into some sort of assembly line. This ‘checkbox’ experience has become the norm for human existence. Your dreams were left behind in order to live the life meant for someone else. At one point you had a dream. Creativity permeated the air surrounding you.

Unintentionally you permitted someone to alter your destiny. Simply by being around other people you can mistakenly absorb the negative words they use. You had an idea and tossed it away because some other moron said it was impossible. Perhaps you tried it and failed. The moment you quit- the moment limitations are manufactured.

These limits are keeping you from your destiny. Inhabiting behind this wall for longer than you can remember. Enclosed within this prison of limitations; unknowingly becoming a hostage. So much time has passed. Through this duration you have stumbled upon comfort. Shattering the glass ceiling would be too painful; therefore, dwelling is here is inevitable. Electing to avoid the pain of change.

“I’m too busy.”– – -You have confused motion with action. Through this idleness and inactivity your time is consistently restructured and handed over to distractions. You enrolled your life to the subscription of other’s desires. Engaging in meaningless conversations or cemented on the couch. Conceivably being further limited by parading the beta version of yourself on social media. Crippled.. .Laissez-faire.

In order to grow, one must suffer. Being the opposition of society or loved ones can be painful.  Understand that even the creation of you is painful. Birth is painful; therefore, we are born into pain. Never be complacent, yet be comfortable with pain.

Open your arms to the torment. Embark upon the aches and discomforts. Realize that pain catalyzes the changes you seek. Enduring irritation is the key to the unlocking these  chains.

Limitations do not exist. If anyone determines you cannot obtain your dreams, it should be you. Never conform. 

Free Yourself: Uncaged

“You ever watch lions at the zoo? You can always tell which ones were captured in the wild by the look in their eyes. The wild cat. She remembers running across the plain, the thrill of the hunt. Four hundred pounds of killing fury, locked in a box. But after a while, their eyes start to glaze over, and you can tell their soul has died. The same thing happens to a man.”

(xXx, 2002)

 

Feeling Alone & Being Motivated

Lost: unable to find one’s way; not knowing one’s whereabouts.

Alone: having no one else present; on one’s own. Without others’ help or participation; single-handed.

Any loss is a form of death. The essence of something is now absent. Maybe a friendship ended or your dog ran away. Maybe you lost your job. Maybe your relationship ended. Maybe someone close to you actually passed away. The identity with this thing leaves us stuck and alone. Wandering and deserted.

The man/woman you once or still love, is now walking alongside someone else. Someone else was hired in your old job. Your best friend has a new best friend.

As these things depart- you remain. Unloved. Feeling sustained inside your vacuum of emptiness. Through the death of these things you become lethargic and confused. The promiscuity of sorrow continues breeding further emotional torment. The byproduct of your devastation creates a missing self-identity that once brought you comfort.

The people you want or wanted in your life are simultaneously having their own life experience. Their concurrent experience simply intersects with yours for a time.  A seasonal conjunction. Everything is temporary and short-lived. Experiences must all come and go. To have died, something must have once lived.

A need for things is simply your own false perception.  Remove the blindfold of loneliness. You believe or feel entitled to believe, the act of desiring these things dictates their presence in your life.

Unknowingly, this confusion and isolation has always been present. Did you evolve in your mother’s womb with someone else? (To the antagonist, even twins are separate beings) Is anyone else experiencing your dreams? Can anyone beyond yourself feel the hot stove your hand rests on?

Alone. You have always been alone. You will always be alone. You have always been experiencing this so called life by yourself.

Those that cannot withstand the smoke, cannot withstand the day you set fire. Let them die. 

In the midst of your forfeiture, be cognizant that these inhabilitating emotions were handpicked. Chosen and selected by of course. . . none other than. .  .You!

Embrace your emptiness. Not being filled with these things; your vacant heart is symbolic for acceptance and peace. Let this revelation guide you to the comprehension of a new reality and restored life. You and your Creator- that relationship is sufficient.

*Don’t you know that you yourselves are God’s temple and that God’s Spirit dwells in your midst? – 1 Corinthians 3:16 

*But Jesus often withdrew to lonely places and prayed. LUKE 5:16 AMP 

Negative Self-Talk

Internal characterless statements expunge all validity of our progress.

  • I just want to be happy.
  • I want what’s best for you.
  • I hope things get better for me.

These crumbling phrases paralyze the human spirit. Consequently and unknowingly, creating a self-defeating vigor within your brittle mind.

You cannot afford to be ambiguous. The clock is still ticking – time is running out! You must speak clarity and conviction to your soul.

Engage Your Subconscious Mind

Write things down once your thoughts become meaningful or your goals become truth.  You must review them. Over and over. And over again- every single day!

The practice of writing things down is an accessory to a powerful mind. Psychologically this practice is proven to increase memory, minimize distractions, and sharpen the brain when you get older. Unload the burdens of your brain. Increase the potentiality.

If ever your emotions inaugurate feelings of defeat or surrender; your true self will override these impromptu notifications. Focus, concentration, and diligence will flow with ease. Contemplations suddenly are disciplined. Circumstances will be viewed from the mountain, not the trenches.

Suffering is the catalyst for growth! Be thankful for it and scream something positive to the bogeyman.

Give birth to a conviction within yourself to DO BETTER! 

You must apply discipline and consistency to achieve your goals. You have to plan everyday. Hard work . . . works!- Denzel Washington

 

How Complaining Affects Your Life

Complain: to express dissatisfaction, pain, uneasiness, censure, resentment, or grief; find fault.

What good is it?- Does it change your circumstances?- Does complaining get you what you want in life? Typically when someone is complaining they are expressing concerns about others.

Your wife won’t come back because you complain about it. You won’t get a raise because you b!tch about how broke you are. The rain doesn’t stop just because you wish for sunshine.

The uneasiness created from your circumstances requires internal changes.

  • Option #1- Change how you look at the situation.
  • Option #2- Do something different to modify the situation.
  • Option #3- Ignore the problem and be still. Many times the situation goes away on its own.

“Much of your pain is the bitter potion by which the physician within you heals your sick self.”- Khalil Gibran

Complaining only convinces others that you are not in control. 

Creating a New Way: Obession

Obsession: an idea or thought that continually preoccupies or intrudes on a person’s mind. 

“By believing passionately in something that still does not exist, we create it. The nonexistent is whatever we have not sufficiently desired.” – Franz Kafka

“Success isn’t always about greatness. It’s about consistency. Consistent hard work leads to success. Greatness will come.” -Dwayne Johnson

Obtaining  goals in life require a distinctive passion. Professional athletes all have something in common- their obsession! They are obsessed with the results they want. They don’t quit when working out gets hard. They don’t stop when they’re faced with obstacles. They don’t stop because someone said they wouldn’t make it. They use obstacles as tools to perfect their craft.

To achieve greatness one must become obsessed with the outcome they desire. When it seems there is no path to take; build a road. When you lack direction; design a route that leads to your dreams. When there is no door to open; start cutting a hole in the wall.

The reflection in the mirror should not spawn fear. Have a distinguished swagger about yourself that cannot be misinterpreted.

You must remain obsessed with the payoff to get paid.

Living Life With Purpose- Imagine Today

I want you to do something. No, actually that isn’t true- You need You to do something. I must warn you that this may be very difficult and uncomfortable. You need to sit back for a moment and close your eyes for 15 to 30 seconds. . .

Vividly imagine with all of your might and with extreme detail: Your mother, father, husband, wife, or even one of your own children would be gone tomorrow. Perhaps you can imagine there are only 48 hours left of your own life.

Are you finished? . . Let’s go deeper into this. Can either of you die today with no regrets?

Now you should feel it. This moment now. . . Yes, this is it! This state of singularity is truly real. Unexpected and unwarranted you suddenly become awake!!!

By the virtue of death, loss, and mortality something magical unfolds; truth and purpose. Losing a loved one makes the world stop spinning: What your friends are doing doesn’t matter- the post someone liked on Facebook is irrelevant- rude cashier at the store is forgotten- the rude text message you read earlier is mentally deleted.

Your perception of meaningless things, thoughts, habits, and even people abruptly fashion to a diminished essence. The illusion of control quickly subdues. Stress and anxiety no longer dangle beyond the bounds of your spirit. This ‘quantum-emotional chaos’ creates new emotions – eradicating others.

As a result of your destitution, your unconditional closeness seems as if it was snatched out of your grasp.  Isolation and desertion reside where comfort and compassion once lived. Your life is reformed through the disappearance of value, compassion, morality, and love. People you trusted most begin to expose their agendas throughout the duration of your squandering.  In search of your foes, you begin losing friends. The depletion of the life you once knew, or foolishly thought existed, shapes into something real. Alleged loyalist suddenly modify their commitment. The trace of their stench creates more emotional disruption. A filthy residue of anger, pain, and resentment is left behind.

Not all is lost. Maneuvering through the complexity of the world becomes simple. Through the solitude and abandonment your mind suddenly undergoes metamorphism. The illumination of truth begins to craft confidence and capability in your heart. Clarity becomes a stepping stone towards an unmistakable purpose. Now you can see what has been holding you back. The phantasm of loyalty and expectations fade to black.

The REAL YOU starts to come back to life! In an attempt to impetuously move forward, you are gifted with wisdom. Performance and accomplishment begins to reach heightened levels. The fucks you previously gave hit an all-time low.

Now you understand love deeper than before. Now you confide in skepticism. Your gut becomes your guide. Loyalty is no longer a free badge neglectfully worn by friends and family.  The declaration of devoted allies was previously accepted on good faith. Adversaries no longer assail in darkness with forged affection.

The opening of your eyes is never a guarantee. Tomorrow is not promised to anyone; therefore, make changes today. Do not make the mistake of speculating opportunities or even people will be there tomorrow.

Every moment you take a breath- you’re a moment closer. Remove anything that does not enhance your life experience. Love every second and live everyday like you are dying tomorrow.
