release your limiting beliefs (4/4)

It’s time to release all your limiting beliefs. I read a story not too long ago that will help this point drive home. 

Once, there was a little dog whose owner kept it on a 20-foot leash for years, tied to a tree. The little dog would see other dogs and run right to the end of his leash. He knew exactly how far he could go.

One day, the owner (finally) felt sorry for the dog, so he decided to let him off the leash. Instead of removing the entire leash, however, the owner simply unfastened the leash from the tree but the collar remained around the dog’s neck. The owner thought the dog would take off running, happy and free. 

When another dog came along, sure enough, the little dog got up and took off running. Much to his surprise, when the little dog got to where the leash would have ended, the dog stopped dead right where he always had. The little dog was free; he just didn’t realize it.

You don’t want this to happen to you… I’m sure you don’t want to live the same tethered life, do you? Work towards eliminating all your limiting beliefs, they are toxic and keeping you away from realizing your true potential. You have to believe in your greater self. You are far more gifted, talented and powerful than you allow yourself to be. 

You’ve only achieved a fraction of what you can truly accomplish in your life, and it’s time to let go of your anchors, and start living the life that you are really meant to live. 

Muster the courage to change things once and for all and let this year be a turning point in your life. Make the resolute decision to start living your personal legend moving forward. As the big O, Oprah Winfrey said, “The great courageous act that we must all do, is to have the courage to step out of our history and past so that we can live our dreams.”
