Dare to Live without Limits

Some people have ambition while others don't.  But ambition isn't required for happiness.  So, does ambition serve a purpose?  Ambition is beneficial when it originates from your own desire.  Ambition can be detrimental if it is externally imposed on you by another person.

" He who never made a mistake never made a discovery" - Samuel Smiles

Although no one wants to, we all make mistakes.  It's virtually unavoidable.  Mistakes have a stigma associated with them.  To many people, mistakes are synonymous with failure, and no one wants to be labeled a failure.

When faced with two or more options, mistake avoidance plays a significant role in the decision making process.  So rather than analyzing which choice offers the greatest rewards, you limit yourself by gravitating towards the alternative with the least risk.

As a reader of this column, you are striving to improve your life.  You want to attain your goals and bring your dreams into reality.  You want to break through your self-imposed limitations.  So you follow all of the advice in this column.

But you think nothing is working.  You are doing all the right things.  Your attitude is positive.  You are motivated.  You have specific goals and a plan to reach them.  You are taking action.  Yet, still you feel as if you are not making the progress you had hoped for.
