Pushing the Limits

July 13, 2010

One of the things that people learn in the military, is that they don’t know their own limits. It’s easy to think that once “the going gets tough”, you are approaching your limit. But in reality, you are far from your limits– that ‘barrier’ is only the beginning! With a genuine resolve to push oneself to the limit (be it resolve by your commanding officer, or yourself), you will soon find that you don’t have any limits other than those your place on yourself.

When it comes to any kind of limit– be it physical, mental, emotional, social, or psychological– your only limits are those that you on yourself. If you think that you limited to being a weakling, you will always be one, until you decided that you can be strong. It’s all in the head– or more specifically, in your mindset.

The problem lies not in what you can do then, but what you are willing to do! Are you willing to cast away all fear, and put your everything into what you are doing. If you fail, it will be a major psychological breakdown– after all, putting everything into it means you will lose everything should you fail.

So you’ve got to have a mindset that is also stronger than failure. A resolve that says “I cannot fail.” So you will never fail– any obstacles or mistakes that you make a merely just another challenge to be overcome. You cannot lose– you merely have to try a bit harder each day to achieve your goals.

As you set for yourself impossible goals, it will always be tough; but as you continue to work towards those goals, it won’t be long before you realize how much stronger you are becoming.

Don’t let anyone (especially you!) sell your potential short– there is nothing that you can’t do — you just need to put your all to it, and eventually you will win, no matter what.

It’s mind over matter– have the mind of God, and God you will become.
