Living A Life Without Limits

The starting point of all great success and achievement is dreaming big dreams. There is nothing more important and nothing works faster. Successful people are able to let go of all their self-imposed limits. They continuously fantasize about the person they want to be, and all the wonderful things they can have and do. That is why all high achieving men and women are far more optimistic, confident, and creative than most people.

When you begin to dream big dreams, your levels of self-esteem and self-confidence will go up immediately. You will feel more powerful about yourself and in your ability to deal with every situation that comes your way. One of the main reasons that so many people accomplish very little in life is because they never allow themselves to imagine the kind of life that is possible for them.

Dreaming big dreams is not easy. You have to think about your life and what you really want. First of all, imagine you have all the time in the world, all the money you need or want, and all the eduction you would ever need. Imagine you have all the resources you need to do whatever you wanted with your life. What would you do?

Before you can decide what is possible, you first have to decide what is right. Because, if you don't decide first what you really want to have and do, then you'll begin thinking about all the reasons why it may not be possible for you. All really successful people start off as dreamers. They dream of a life of infinite possibilities. They know there is no limit to what they could possibly be, have, or do. Every great life, company, and institution of human attainment has started with a dream in the mind of someone.

Here are some important keys to living a life without limits.

First, you have to be absolutely clear about who your are, what you want, and where you are going. You must write down your goals and make plans to achieve them. Set priorities for yourself so that each day you do something to move closer towards achieving your goals. The more progress you make towards your goals, the greater your self-confidence and self-belief will be, and the more convinced you will become that there are no limits on what you can achieve.

Another key to living a life without limits is to become excellent in your chosen field. You should apply the 80/20 rule to everything you do. Focus on becoming outstanding in the 20 percent that contributes 80 percent of the results. In order for you to do this, you have to dedicate yourself to continuous, lifelong learning. Realize that excellence is a moving target. It's a journey, not a destination. Commit yourself to doing something every day to become better and better until you become the very best in your field.

Two other keys you must have in order to achieve success are, focus and concentration. Having focus is knowing exactly what you want to be, have, and do. Concetration is when you have developed the self-descipline to concentrate single-mindedly on your goal and being able to stay with it until its accomplishment.

The most important key to living a life without limits is visualizaton. You should visualize what your life will look like several years into the future, after you've achieved all of your goals. Then visualize the path that you will have to take to get where you want to be. It is very important that you set aside time each day for visualiztion.

All self-limiting beliefs exist only in our mind. They have no substance in reality. There is nothing you cannot do once you put your mind to it. Once you set a clear goal and you put your whole heart and soul behind it, the only thing that can stop you from achieving it, is yourself.

When you allow yourself to dream big dreams, you will set bigger goals as well. You will begin to feel an incredible sense of power and confidence. As you focus on doing what you love to do and become excellent in those areas that can make a real difference in your life, your whole future will open up in front of you. When you release your self-limiting beliefs, you begin to think in terms of possibilities rather than impossiblities, you will begin moving toward the realization of your full potential, and your future will become unlimited.
