Have you ever explored the limits of your potential? Or are you limiting yourself by what you believe is possible for you. There are amazing stories going back through history, where humans have exhibited incredible feats of both physical and mental prowess. One of the stories that really stood out for me was when, Marie Payton was using her self-drive mower to cut her lawn in High Island Texas. The mower pulled out of her hands and began to careen out of control across her lawn, heading straight for her granddaughter. Evie tried to stop the mower and was knocked over in the path of the out of control machine. The blade was still running under the mower as the machine began to go over little Evie. In a feat of super human effort Marie covered an incredible distance, grabbed hold of the mower, which weighed more than 300 pounds and tossed it out of the way as if it was made of light plastic. After the incident Marie tried to lift the same mower and was unable to even move it.
This incident highlights the pent up potential that lies dormant in all of us. We are capable of achieving incredible things, when we find a good enough reason, why anything is important to us. Marie managed to perform at levels way above what she thought possible, when the reason to do so was great enough. Are you limiting your potential because you are trapped in a comfort zone that is far below your capabilities? Or are you performing below your potential because you have not found that really deep rooted reason why you want to achieve something. When you uncover your WHYPOWER, that really meaningful reason why you want to achieve something, you become unstoppable and your world opens up to you.
If I placed a plank about 8 inches wide on the floor in front of you and I offered you $ 20 to walk over the plank. I am sure that you would smile, as you walked over the plank and took my $ 20. If I changed one thing and I took the same plank and suspended it between two 50 story buildings and once again, I offered you $ 20 to walk over the same plank. I am sure that you would think I was crazy and you would decline. Once again we change one thing, you are on the one building and your child is on the other building. The other building is on fire and the flames are licking at your child’s feet. Would you now run across the same plank and save your child? Everything is the same, yet now you would run across the same plank to save your child. What has changed? The reason why you must cross the plank has changed. It is clear that we will do incredible things and persevere and overcome any challenges when we have a big enough reason why we want something. Are you willing to search deep inside yourself and discover that one astounding, crucial and meaningful reason why you want to have do or be anything at all. When you discover this reason why you want to achieve anything, you have a tool that will allow you to overcome anything and to persevere until you succeed.
We are all imbued with incredible potential and can achieve incredible things, if we are able to create real belief in ourselves and we can uncover that real meaningful reason why we want to have, do or be anything. I am sure that you dreamed about possessing super human powers as a child. As you grew up and you trained yourself to think differently, to be “realistic”, you began to believe that you were limited and constrained by your self-imposed comfort zone. You stopped dreaming about possibility and accepted your “realistic” limitations. You are after all, not capable of much, you are just average and you must accept mediocrity. Well today that all changes, it is time for you to realise that you are only limited, by what you believe is possible for you. That “SELF-IMPOSED” comfort zone is as real as the Easter Bunny and the tooth fairy. You are capable of achieving absolutely anything and it is time to stop limiting yourself and holding yourself away from the lifestyle you deserve.
I want you to see that anything is possible, to highlight this, I offer you another example of super human power. Angela Cavallo, lifted a 1964 Chevrolet Impala off her son. He was working under the car, when the jack failed and the car fell on top of him. She held the car up long enough for two neighbours to replace the jack and pull him to safety. The current women’s deadlift record is 502.6 pounds and is held by Christine Neff. They estimate that Angela lifted about 1200 pounds off her son. There is an enormous difference between the world record held by a trained professional athlete and an average lady, with a huge reason why she must perform at super human levels of achievement. You are amazing and have unlimited possibilities available to you. Now is the time to begin exploring all the things you are capable of achieving and to stop limiting yourself with your own self-doubt.
