I recently finished a 21-part JumpStart series titled “Masters of Life” in which I celebrated great teachers whose impact had created a lasting, positive impact on my life.

If you missed it, go back and check it out.

One of the Masters to whom I paid homage was Richard Bach, author of Illusions, Jonathan Livingston Seagull and many others and, to be honest, I could do an entire series on just him.

Today I’d like to focus on a quote from Bach’s book Illusions, The Adventures of a Reluctant Messiah,

“Argue for your limitations and they’re yours.”

Every day now for several years, I’ve been posting 3 little positive sayings on Facebook.

Nothing too profound — just something pithy to inspire, encourage, and motivate my fans.

And, it’s AMAZING how many comments I get that start with, “UNLESS,” “BUT,” “IF ONLY,” “YOU DON’T GET IT,” and “THAT’S EASY FOR YOU TO SAY!”

The person then launches into why he or she can’t do something because of some physical or emotional issue.

Look, I get that EACH of us has limitations in some areas but for the most part, you need to get over your self-destructive excuse-making.

You’re FAR more capable than you give yourself PERMISSION to be!
