These days I was entering the bathroom area of my office and a colleague who was coming out tells me: “There are none of the bathrooms available, I’m going to have to go without being able to use it.” They are the only bathrooms in the area, so I went in anyway. If I had to wait for availability, then I was waiting. Upon entering, I see that there are 2 of the occupied cubicles and one of them is open, only that someone had put sanitary paper on the lid and left it like that, without having the paper. I went in, threw away the paper, washed my hands and used the bathroom without major complications. Of course I thought: what did she notice that she saw the bathroom impossible to use?
Then for some reason I remembered a video that I had seen a few weeks ago, of exercises to exercise memory and the brain in which, as part of the introduction, I heard a phrase that I want to share today to meditate on it as I did: “If you keep defending your limits, you’ll never get out of them.”
In the last “post” that I shared with you, ‘I talked about how our memories and the archive of deception limit us to use our imagination and extend to greater and new things that are waiting for us. Today I want to invite you to look inside yourself and see how many limitations you see in things. How many times have you found yourself saying you can’t do something? I continually listen to people around me using expressions of defeat and impossibilities continually. It is so normal that they don’t realize it. Before trying to do something, they already know that they will not achieve it. I recently learned that one of the definitions of “cowardly” is the person who does not even try to do something because he understands that he will not be able to do it. The pretexts you use to justify not doing something seem like good reasons, but how long are you going to continue defending your insecurities? When are you going to stop seeing limits to start seeing opportunities?
Get out of the file of your mind and say as the apostle Paul: “Brothers, I do not pretend to have reached it; but one thing I do: certainly forgetting what is left behind, and extending to what is ahead.”
Stop seeing the “good reasons” why you are not able to achieve something and start seeing opportunities. Start small, change your language. No matter the result, in the end, the satisfaction of having left your limits will be greater than anything. Remember that Jesus loves you and is on your side, and with Him on your side you are already more than conqueror. You were not created to be limited, you were created for great things, and you have to believe it so you can reach it. Today God tells you as he told the prophet: What do you see…? You have seen well; because I hasten my word to put it to work. If you can see it, it is yours Blessings.
