Inner Growth Word of the Day: Limit
Merriam-Webster Dictionary definition: (n.) 1 a. something that bounds, restrains, or confines.
Limit in a sentence: What someone considers a limit, someone else considers an opportunity.
Limit in action: When you are bound or stopped from pursuing something that is a limit.
Limit and inner growth: Exploring what you see as a limit and what limits are present in your life give you a chance to remove those limits by finding solutions to them or dissolving them when they are self-imposed limits. This deep dive into your limits brings inner growth thanks to the uncovering of the true reasons for self-imposed limits, but also facing with yourself how you manage limits out of your control and doing something about them that can bring harmony even without change.
Limit and inner growth action steps:
- In-depth self-exploration questions: What do I see as a limit? How do I handle my limits? How do limits affect me emotionally? When was the first time I experienced a limit and what was it? Who has influenced my limits and perceived limits? How has a limit affected my life long term? How have limits affected where I am today? What are some of my biggest takeaways from my perceived limits?
- List or word bubble: Make a list or word bubble with limit at the center and then list or put around it all the other words that come to mind associated with it. From this list pick three words and to each think of a limit. From these three limits you listed, write down if they are physical limits or self-imposed limits. Lastly, write out scenarios for these three limits that played out in your life and when you’re done read them. Are they still in the same physical or self-imposed limit category as before you wrote about your experiences with them?
- Bring your awareness to your feelings about limit and allow them to flow throughout you as you visualize a river flowing from a beautiful mountain top all the way out to the ocean. There’s a beautiful coastline and you sit down continuing to feel the emotions that are passing by as you think about limits. Next think of one limit that stands out to you the most in the way it makes you feel and allow these feelings to speak to you as you sit in silence listening to them.
