“If you put limits on everything you do – physical or anything else – it will spread into your work and your life. There are no limits, only plateaus, and we must go beyond them.” – Bruce Lee
Bruce Lee was involved in a horrific motorcycle accident when he was younger. He was told he would never be able to walk again.
So he was left to make a choice. To believe that his life was limited, where the self-fulfilling prophecy would follow. Or, to choose to believe that there truly are no limits. That there are only the ones we impose on ourselves.
Bruce made his choice. He chose to believe in cause and effect, and he put in the work. When times got hard, he got harder. When he reached a plateau, he recognized it for what it was. Not a limit, but the next challenge. And he found a way to overcome it.
Bruce made his choice.
When we reach our next challenge, what will be ours?
Will we see it as our limit, or the next plateau to go beyond?
