“Don't tell me the sky's the limit when there are footprints on the moon.” ― Paul Brandt
This story has circulated for many years and its author remains anonymous as much as I can tell. But it is a story that can teach us a point about us. It is a story that can help us focus on understanding what limits us many times.
~~~~~~One day the employees of a very unusual company reached their office and saw a big sign on the front door which said,
Yesterday, the person who has been hindering your growth in this company passed away. We invite you to join the funeral memorial in the large meeting hall which has been prepared.
In the beginning, they were each sad for the death of one of their colleagues, but after a short while they started getting curious to know who was this person who had hindered the growth of colleagues and the company itself?
The excitement in the meeting hall was such that security agents were ordered to control the crowd within the room. The more people reached the coffin, the more the excitement heated up.
Everyone thought, "Who is this person who was hindering my progress?" One by one the intrigued employees got closer to the coffin, and when they looked inside they suddenly became speechless.
All got to stand near the coffin.
All ended up shocked and in silence.
It was as if someone had touched the deepest part of their soul.
There was a mirror inside the coffin: everyone who looked inside could see themselves! There was also a sign next to the mirror that said, "There is only one person who is capable of setting limits to your growth and IT IS YOU!'
Your life does not change when your boss changes, when your friends change, when your parents change, when your husband or wife changes, when your company changes, when your church changes, when your location changes, when your money changes, or when your status changes.
Your life changes when YOU change, when you go beyond your limiting beliefs.
Examine yourself, watch yourself. Don't be afraid of difficulties, impossibilities and losses. Be a winner, build yourself and your reality. It's the way you face life itself that makes the difference.
Stay inspired my friends!
