Be open for change

I heard someone say today, “If you fight for your limitations, you get to keep them.” It then occurred to me that every excuse I have been making of why I can’t or won’t do something different, was in a way, me fighting to keep my limitations.

We should never be afraid to try out something new, after all, the process of growth is the process of experiencing something we have never had before, be it a new height, size, or position. Whether it is physical, mental, emotional or financial, we have to be open for change in order to grow.

The other thing that struck me is that growth is natural and will seek to happen, so it is therefore a fight to put limitations on a system that wants to grow. The effort spent on limiting growth should be redirected into facilitating it.

Don’t fight for your limitations anymore, be open for change and facilitate growth.
