Solving my Upper Limit Problem 04/19/2011
"Because few people understand how the Upper Limit Problem works, many of us believe we are flawed, not destined for greatness or simply not good enough to deserve the dreams we want to achieve." -Gay Hendricks
Last night I found myself standing in my back yard underneath a Full Moon. My view was harbored by full, luscious, green trees & although my allergies are getting the best of me right now, I still long to be in the spirit of nature.
While I was standing there, under the Moon - my mind went to what intention I should set for this next moon phase. (If you didn't know, the power of intention is powerfully multiplied on a Full Moon.)
What came to me crystal clear - is the idea of taking the game I am playing up another level, or two.
As some of you know I have been reading The Big Leap. Gay Hendricks speaks about our 'upper level problems'. He believes that our success thermostat can sometimes be set at a low degree & we will do anything & everything in our power to stay at or below that setting - including self-sabotaging.
I am totally with him on this one. I can retrace numerous steps that I have taken where I am doing really well & then BOOM a tidal wave of destruction hits. I can retrace my actions & behaviors that contributed to the manifestation of the tidal wave. I can see the moment where I look back at the destruction & think to myself, 'see, I knew I couldn't make it to the tops & stay there'.
I don't know about you, but self-sabotaging isn't fun for me anymore. I have big ideas for amazing projects & courses I want to share with the world. & although I don't have dreams of being on Oprah or becoming The President of the United States - my dreams are worth sharing.
If I can make an impact on the small group of people that surround me in a positive way - then I am a success. It only gets bigger & better from there.
How do you define success? What is your Upper Limit Thermostat set at? What are you doing to raise it higher?
