Monday Mojo for Caregivers – Pushing Past Your Limits to Live Better
Hello and welcome to Monday Mojo for Caregivers. The only thing stopping you from reaching your goals and dreams are your limits. It’s when you meet your limits that you feel resistance and things you want seem harder to achieve. Whether it is fear, doubt, physical abilities or some other mental block, it can present a huge barrier to getting what you want.
Here are five things you can do to push past your limits.
- Find someone to help push you
Just that little bit of support encouraging you to keep going in the face of resistance can mean so much. Have someone on your side that can counter-balance any negative thinking you might have.
- Take on a little more than you think you can
Pushing past your limits means taking on newer, progressively harder challenges. If you’re not challenging yourself to do bigger and better things on a regular basis, you’re only working within the confines of what you already can do.
- Imagine reaching your next level
Working on your dreams or goals can take a lot of focus. Where you put that focus matters a lot. Imagine that next level for reaching your dreams and take steps to get there.
- Inspire yourself to action
Find something that inspires you to reach your goals. Whether it is a video, quote or thought that inspires you to succeed, it should be something that fills you with passion and drive to get things done. Inspiration can be a powerful motivational tool.
- Work on your weaknesses
Where there are weaknesses, there are limits. Think about a marathon runner. They won’t be able to train very well for a marathon if they can’t find a good running stride or have bad nutrition. These are big areas of weakness that just makes training harder. Without correction, your weaknesses will limit how far you can take yourself.
When you’re facing your limits and you feel that resistance, it can seem hard to overcome. But just by pushing yourself a little harder, you can really accomplish some great things. And the funny thing is that once you do, you can look back and wonder just why you ever thought it was that difficult to begin with. Don’t let limits stop you from doing anything!
