Of course a ship is always safest when it is in the harbor, but a ship was not designed to spend its life, rusting away, safely in the harbor. It was designed to venture out into the large, unknown ocean, to explore, discover and bring back the wonders the world has to offer. The same is true for us, as human beings, we are safest, when we allow ourselves to remain trapped in our self-imposed comfort zones. Yes we may feel safe, but we are never fulfilled or content. Break free from your comfort zone today and dare to dream, explore and discover all the amazing opportunities, which are available to you.

Allow yourself to dream, see yourself soaring through the clouds of possibility, to a place where anything and everything is possible. Unless you are going to allow your mind the freedom to soar and dream big dreams, you will remain trapped in the hangar of despair and never live a life of meaning and value. Allow your mind out for a walk today and allow it to take flight, to soar into the realm of possibility and to discover all the opportunities, which are available to you, if you are willing to search and discover. You are a truly remarkable person, with an incredible amount of pent-up potential. Break free from your comfort zone today and you will begin to see almost magical possibility open up before you.

Examine your dreams and try to discover why you have restricted yourself and held yourself away from realizing your potential. Your dreams are yours alone, no one else can ever be entrusted to be the pilot of your dreams. People, who have allowed their dreams to be stifled, resent people who do have dreams and they will try to scuttle your passion and desire to succeed at every turn. Stay focused on your dreams and do not allow people to drag you away from your potential. You are the captain at the helm of your future, do not give anyone sway over your life and future.
Stop listening to the negative external voices any longer, they will hijack your potential and steal your dreams. The only limitations, which exist are limitations we allow ourselves to believe exist. Stop listening to the voices of other people, who place limitations on you by doubting your ability and criticizing your potential. The turbulence of criticism can only affect your potential, if you listen to it and allow it to affect your belief in yourself. Stay firmly in control of your future, grasp hold of the controls of your success craft and by staying focused on your vision, you will avoid being knocked off course.

The past only serves one purpose and that is to offer us the opportunity to learn from any mistakes we made. It is by no means a barometer of what we are capable of achieving or doing in the future. Do not allow any failures from the past to keep you trapped in a life of average. Break free from any memories, which are embedded in your psyche. Do not let these limit your future in any way. The fact that you may have started a business, which failed in the past, does not in any way mean you will fail again in the future. Quite the contrary, the experience you gained with the fist failure, will actually stand you in good stead with your new venture.

We have all encountered the gap between expectation and reality, the place where disappointment reigns supreme. Yes failure does cause us pain, but it also offers us the opportunity to learn and grow. Summon the courage to break free from any past failures or disappointments and stay focused on realizing your dreams. When you can appreciate that challenge, disappointment and failure are just part of any success journey; you have discovered the secret to sustainable long term super achievement.

If you want to become exceptional and achieve great things with your life, you need to dig deep and accept that being exceptional requires extra effort, passion, inspiration and daily discipline. Stop allowing your circumstances or the challenges you may have encountered in the past to weigh you down any longer. Super achievement requires you to give that little extra every day and for you to no longer accept average. Average effort equals average achievement, extraordinary effort, equals super achievement. Do not abandon your dreams because you accept average and you allowed yourself to begin making small almost unnoticeable concessions every day, which over time added up to poor performance. Stay focused on your vision and do not allow your dreams to slip away.

Dare to dream big dreams, stop playing small. Break free from your comfort zone and dare to venture beyond what you can see with your eyes. You possess the most incredible tool, which can guide you to soar to incredible heights of achievement, namely you imagination. Set your imagination free today and dare to lift yourself beyond the average. Give yourself permission to create a vision that surpasses your current life and begin to travel on a journey to greatness. Allow your dreams to infuse your mind with energy, see yourself achieving greatness. You have unlimited potential, have the courage to set yours free today and everything becomes possible for you.
