Stop Limiting Yourself

Do you know what you are truly capable of?

I'm guessing the answer to that question is a resounding NO.

How can I say this with so much confidence?

Simple.

Yesterday, I walked 65 kilometers (a little more than 40 miles), almost all of it within a span of 12 hours. 

Understandably, I'm rather exhausted from this activity, so I'm going to keep this blog post relatively short. But that doesn't mean it won't be impactful - or at least, I hope so.

You see, if anyone had told me, even a week or two ago, that I would achieve that distance in the race for which I'd been training since the early summer, I would have laughed hysterically at them. 

My goal was to walk 50 kilometers. I didn't care how long it took - the race course was open for 24 hours, so I literally could have shuffled my way to the end. 

But a funny thing happened... I reached my goal, and realized I still felt fine. I decided to keep going, to see how far I could push my limits.

And ended up adding another 15K to my total. 

It still doesn't quite feel real, in one sense. 

But in another way, it proves something I've always believed about we humans: we carry around with us all kinds of self-imposed limitations on our capabilities. 

I didn't believe I could walk more than 50K. But as soon as I let go of that limiting belief, and stepped out into the unknown, I did. 

Notice the two key components: changing your mindset, and taking action.

If either of these pieces is missing, the magic doesn't happen. But, engage both of them, and watch your life transform!
