Overcome Self-Imposed Limitations

A key component of being successful is to break free from self-imposed limitations. These limitations are limits you set in your mind about who you are, what you can do and what you can become. You don’t need to worry about others limiting you. No one can make you become what you don’t want to become. And no one can stop you from becoming what you want to become.

You are a powerful being endued by God with tremendous supernatural ability. When it comes to limitations, you’re the one person who can limit you. Success begins when you stop worrying about others and start focusing on what you can do with the potential residing in you. 

God placed great potential in Moses and called him to lead the exodus of the Israelites from Egypt. But, Moses did everything possible to talk himself out of it (see Exodus 4:10-17). God saw greatness in Moses, but Moses insisted he wasn’t capable. Moses was stuck in his self-imposed limitations. If God had given up on him, Moses would have missed his call to greatness.

Another example. God called Gideon to go and deliver Israel from the oppression of the Midianites (see Judges 6:1-16). The angel’s first words to Gideon were, “The LORD is with you, you mighty man of valor!” But like Moses, Gideon was stuck in self-imposed limitations. The more God called him mighty, the more Gideon insisted he wasn’t capable. If God had given up convincing him, Gideon wouldn’t be the famous judge of Israel we know today.

My question for you today is, “Have you set any limits in your mind about who you are, about what you can do and who you can become? Are you talking yourself out of your dreams? Are you stuck in self-imposed limitations?” Don’t let fear and doubt keep you from rising to the top. God has destined you for greatness. Gravitate toward your destiny with confidence and gratitude.

Say with me:

“I am grateful for my destiny. God has called me to greatness. I recognize the greatness in me. I am letting go of doubt and fear. I let go all self-imposed limitations. I am keeping my mind open to unlimited possibilities of breakthrough, success and blessings. I am a child of the Most High. I have a wonderful life. In Jesus Name. Amen.”
