When you argue for your limitation, you get to keep them. – Les Brown

When you argue for your limitation, you get to keep them. – Les Brown

The most damaging word in achieving our goals is “but.” When we insert this word in our mindset we argue for our limitations. “I want to exercise four times per week but . . .” or “I want to confront a negative colleague but . . .” are just two quick examples. When we argue for our limitations, we empower the excuses in our minds. We just accepted our very limitations.

Be aware of your insertion of “limitations” in your own talk and self-talk over the next several days. Listen to others who insert unintentional limitations in their lives. Be purposeful in your approach to goals, tasks, and actions. Don’t let your limitation define your behavior. Earn success through intentional actions, don’t accept limitations as an excuse for failure without even trying.
