Growing Beyond Our Upper Limits

September 29, 2020

I’ve been juggling a lot lately.

Leveling up in business and putting big plans in motion (with a book launch, podcast launch, and starting some legit research for The Institute!!) Dialing in my health and fitness even further and more intentionally. Leaning into love and partnership in totally different ways. Blazing through upper limit after upper limit like it’s no big deal.

The truth is, it’s all a big deal.

There’s a reason, as humans, we tend to maintain the status quo—always settling into places and spaces that are comfortable, known, and familiar. Growing incrementally and within what we already believe to be possible for ourselves, based on past experiences.

I’m no stranger to upper limiting, but that doesn’t make it any easier to move through my subconscious stoppers and limiting beliefs. It doesn’t make it any easier to push myself above and beyond what I know I’m capable of when all I want to do is stop and sleep.

I’ve been studying what it takes to make the impossible happen for several years now, but that doesn’t make my holy-whoa-impossible goals feel any easier to achieve. It doesn’t make it any easier to learn new ways of being and take massive risks daily.

I’m aware of how capable and resilient I am after all I’ve walked through, but that doesn’t make it any less terrifying. It doesn’t make it easier to stretch myself again and again or reach for new heights.

But the difference between the people who do big, extraordinary, impossible things and the majority who stay stuck and small is that they remain in motion despite the fear, discomfort, and lack of ease.

They get back up as many times as it takes.⁣
They continue to take risks and put themselves out there.⁣
The ask for support when and where they need it.⁣
They rest, but they never quit.

To make the impossible happen, we have to be willing to engage with the world in an entirely different way. And we have to be ready to recommit to that mindset every single moment of every single day.

Onward and upward, always.
