“I continuously go further and further learning about my own limitations, my body limitation, psychological limitations. It’s a way of life for me.” Ayrton Senna.
Yesterday I meet long-time MondayMotivator reader Katrina and her husband while watching one of my extended family sing at a pub. Great way to spend an afternoon.
We got onto the subject of knowing your limits and knowing when you need to get some help. Like when it’s getting getting hard to read and you should get your eyes tested but put it off. A lot of people put that off for a long time but I’ve seen reading glasses make life a lot easier for people.
Anyway, back to limitations and Ayrton’s quote. You might have read me saying I am an experiment of one. I continually test things to see if they work for me or don’t. Like Ayrton it’s a way of life for me.
It’s a very simple thing to do that can have massive results. You can quickly see if something is moving you forwards, to where you want to go, or backwards.
I do this because I can then pass on what works to others by physical proof. There doesn’t seem to be any other way to convince people things are good for them – or might be good for them.
Limitations are generally self-imposed. That means self can un-impose them as well. Not sure that’s a word but you get my drift right? Like my 10,000 push-ups challenge this year. I haven’t missed a day and others have let me know how they are going as well. It’s a great challenge mentally because it’s easy to put them off when physically it’s not that hard.
Have a think about something you could do for the next month that pushes you physically or mentally forward. Not only will it do that for you it will have a big affect on those around you.
