We Are Our Own Worst Enemy   Leave a comment

I have spent the last few years of my life undoing all of the toxic beliefs that I inherited during my childhood or created as coping mechanisms over the years.  One of those beliefs that has really held me back is a belief in limitation.  I have been blessed to have awakened when it comes to the idea of limits and now understand that the only limits that exist are the ones we place on ourselves.

I came across this video this morning as I was checking my email and it was sooo inspiring to me that I had to post it.  Becoming a model at 49?  I’m sure that’s on your can’t list.  Not for this woman…

The next time you say “I can’t”, ask yourself why not?  Most times the answer will be dumbfounded silence because, well, there is no reason.  If on the odd chance you do have a “reason” why you can’t, I guarantee the “reason” will reflect a limitation you have placed upon yourself.  If this woman can become a model at 49 and an entrepreneur at 60, what can you do?

In the words of my fellow Columbia High School alumnus Lauryn Hill, “It’s freedom time.”


The original video I saw can be seen here @ http://vitality.yahoo.com/video-second-act-cindy-joseph-26992874.  I couldn’t embed it.  The one above is another one I found.
