Limitations

Last week, Tor Constantino ran a guest post I wrote for his blog, The Daily Retort. I ended the post with a passionate call to you to step out of fear and Live BOLD.

But there’s something you need to understand, something I didn’t quite say in that post:

You can never live BOLD until you confront what’s limiting you. You can tweet this

If you accept reasons to remain stagnant, you will not step out in faith and grow.

If you continue to embrace human limitations, you will live an average life.

For years, the fear of not being good enough limited my person, purpose and passions. God opened my eyes and gave me the courage to face my fears. I won!

Confront Yourself

  • What’s keeping you from being free?
  • What’s caging you?
  • What’s your biggest fear?
  • What diminishes your faith?
  • What’s your number one enemy of progress?
  • What overshadows God’s grace in your life?
  • What kills your confidence?
  • What stops you from believing the impossible?
  • What’s stopping you from living?
  • What’s keeping you from breathing anew?
  • What depletes your hope?
  • What steals your courage?
  • What makes you think GOD is no longer faithful?
  • What’s limiting you?
  • Most importantly, what are you going to do about it… today?

3-Point Action Plan

Have you decided it’s time up on limitations in your life? Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Pray – that’s where to start. Run to God for help. Physical and psychological challenges have a spiritual element.
  2. Take Personal Responsibility – confront yourself, face your fears. Change what you can influence and trust God to take you farther than you can go.
  3. Step Out – act your prayers and live again.

In which area of your life are you currently experiencing limitations? What will you do about it today? Leave a comment and I will pray with you.
