Live Limit-Free. Always
Hey! If you're reading this, the title (or maybe the image) caught your attention. Which tells me the thought of living limit-free sounds good to you. So keep reading to find out what the hell I'm on about...
What does 'Live Limit-Free' mean?
Living Limit Free is about living the life you want, the way you want to. With the freedom, confidence and empowerment to achieve your ambitions, overcome life’s challenges and face each day with the drive, determination and mindset that you decide your journey.
Living Limit-Free means you are the reason for your success. And you reap the benefits.
That's all well and good, but what does it mean in practice?
The first thing to know about deciding to live limit-free is this.
Most people, every day, have an idea, feel inspired or have the desire to do something that's going to make them happy, make life more fulfilling or help them achieve their dreams. When you have those moments it's wondering. You start to get all excited about the possibilities ahead of you and what it would mean for the way you live your life.
It even happens with the smaller things. Like deciding to change your look, behave more confidently or try something new.
The amazing thing about these moments of inspiration is that they are the real you trying to get out. It's your unconscious mind giving you an opportunity to be you. And to live your life your way.
What usually happens is you might spend another 20 or 30 minutes imagining what life would be like if you just took the step towards your idea. And then you convince yourself it's never going to happen.
You start to tell yourself you're being daft and you'll never be able to do it. Giving yourself more and more excuses until you end up annoyed with yourself for even thinking something so ridiculous!
And do you know why? Because of the in-built mindset and attitudes you have in your unconscious mind towards new and challenging things.
What does that even mean?
I'm glad you asked. It means that through your life, without you even realising, your unconscious mind uses your experiences and memories to create habits, beliefs and attitudes to certain things with a view to minimising the risk to your life.
The thing is, this starts from really young age where your understanding of the world isn't the most useful. And it builds on these time and again so that what you end up with is a set of beliefs, values and attitudes to govern the way you live your life.
And if you're regularly find yourself having dreams, ambitions and goals then telling yourself it's never going to happen 'for someone like you'. Or that it's just too difficult, so never even trying. Then you have a set of limiting beliefs and attitudes that are working against you, and hiding the real you.
So how do I live a limit-free life?
Living limit-free means you need to do just four things:
Commit to take control of your life, to live limit-free and to live your life, your way.
Create clear and compelling definition of what living your life, your way means to you.
A limit-free mindset.
A list of actions you will take to live limit free.
Give me a few more minutes of your time, and I'll tell you how you go about doing each of these.
Making a conscious decision to live limit-free
I know some of you reading this will have already said 'fuck yeah! I'm up for living limit-free' in your head. Right?
And if it was that easy, we'd all be loving life every day...
The truth is, saying something in your head is a bit like when you were at school at you muttered an answer under your breath instead of raising your hand and telling the class. No-one hears it. You're not accountable. And if the question (or in this case, commitment) was actually more difficult than you thought, you don't expose yourself to any challenge.
So instead of just saying it in your head, say it out loud. Tell your significant other. Write a post on Social Media - or if all of those are a bit too scary - comment on this blog or drop me an email telling me you're committed to taking control of your life, you want to live limit-free and from this moment you're going to live your life, your way!
And remember - this is step one!
