Limits

20120723-062448.jpg

We all have limits. No matter how you slice it, there is a cap on just how much you can get your body to do. At some point in time, you will hit the absolute edge of what you can do. There’s no shame in that.

So how can I say that and then tell you that your potential has no limits?

When you hit one end, you get to start a new beginning. You may find that you max out on squats. At that point in time you turn around and go do something new. Take up triathlons. Go for a French vacation and ride a bike up the side of a mountain. Maybe your physical health is deteriorating. You can’t run any longer. So what? Research alternatives and do something new. Take up an adaptive sport like curling. Challenge yourself to walk 20 minutes a day. Push until you find that new limit. Then go do it again.

When you reach the limit see it for what it is. It’s not an end, it’s the edge of a new beginning. That is how you stay truly limitless.
