Busting Limits; Can It Be Easy?

Ultimate Blog Challenge Day 11

I love that what I shared yesterday about limits in my article Limits: Real or Imagined? struck a cord with readers and that the creative exercise proved to be of value.  Having read the comments and thought about what everyone had to say I got to thinking can busting limits be easy?

Today I plan to share with you a tool that I use to create increasing ease in all areas of my life.  I have a great passion for adopting an effortless approach and living more effortlessly in general.  Having been bought up in a society and family that honoured the work hard effort I am someone who is recovering from the belief that to get anywhere in life I have to work very, very hard and then if I’m lucky I might get somewhere.  In the past couple of years I’ve decided that holding onto that belief was in fact one of my limits and that it was time for us to part ways and exist separately

Anyway enough about me – let’s get back to the intention I have for today’s post to share with you something I am sure can help you to bust your limits in a much easier way than you may have imagined.  It’s not a one size fits all, fixes all ‘cure’ but it’s a great step and a creative way to move in the right direction if you choose to give it a go

Creative Exercise: Creating A Path Of Ease

First up I want you to believe that things can be easy or easier than you may have previously believed.  Even if you just have to pretend for just now – go with that and enjoy using your imagination

Ok now I’d like you to think about something that’s been an issue, challenge or cause of concern for you recently.  It’s likely something that has been holding you back from experiencing more joy, love, success……

Set an intention to find a solution

Ask for support to uncover one or more actions you can take to help yourself address the concern

Now ask “How can this be easy / easier?” and go with whatever you come up with

 

When I do this I always get a great insight into what action I can take to break through whatever limit or challenge has been holding me back.   Trust plays a big part in you benefiting from this creative exercise.  Trust yourself, be open to the answers you receive and most of all dare to take action.  What have you got to lose?

Until next time I wish you a limitless life filled with succulent, effortless success

    Hi Shannon,

    My, what a day for me to read this. I, too, have struggled all my life with this. First, I have never been an imaginative person. I always said that I didn’t go through that stage in my earlier life :). Anyway, I have taken notes above and will follow through and let you know what happens. I have let go of many things this past four or five months and things are easier than they were but I’m always a work in progress. Thanks for sharing and I’ll have to go back and read your post from yesterday as I didn’t see that one yet. Have a great day.

      Hi Colleen
      I am so very happy that you got something out of what was shared in this post. I welcome you to try allowing yourself to become imaginative, even just to complete the exercise. Imagination is a form of creativity and we are all creative beings. Creativity is how we express ourselves and how we bring new things into being – in all the different possibilities that can be
      Congratulations on letting go – I hope you’ve been celebrating along the way? We are all works in progress in my opinion. In fact I believe we are our own greatest masterpieces and a true work of art in progress so enjoy the journey that is life and so with awareness and joy I wish you a limitless life filled with succulent, effortless success,

    Hi Shannon- Seems simple but it’s so powerful to set an intention to find a solution. It also helps us to focus on what is working instead of whats not. My first time here! Nice site! Happy New Year!

      Hi Dana
      Great to have you visit us here at our on-line home and glad you liked what you saw! Yes it seems simple yet for so many people it’s a difficult thing to do – to identify and release themselves from limits in any and all of their forms. Focusing on what’s working and being in gratitude for that is so important

    It’s all about taking that leap of faith and trusting isn’t it Shannon! We usually have more to gain than to lose with action. At the very least, we have the learning experience.

      Yes Dawn Alice I have to agree that taking that leap of faith and trusting is certainly key here! Add to that a healthy dose of action and it’s astounding what you can create for yourself if you so choose to do so
      Thanks for taking the time to read and comment.
