In our initial installment, I shared with you the “First Limitation.” After taking the assessment you should be able to determine if you’re ready to stop settling for the self you know and open your heart up to the self that is yearning to emerge.
This isn’t something you can simply “know” in your mind. You must choose from your heart because this evolution of self serves to help you live a soul-stirring, purpose-driven life, one replete with creativity, joy, and compassion. In the ancient book of Romans 14:17, it declares the kingdom of God to be “righteousness, peace and joy in spirit.” And, that’s exactly what this conversation is about--experiencing the God kind of LIFE.
Overcoming the first limitation feels like a huge step, and it is because it properly positions you to overcome the second limitation, and when you do, you can experience a level of freedom that few experience.
What is the second limitation, you ask?
According to Ken Robinson in his book The Element,
“The second limitation is in our understanding in how all of these capacities relate to each other holistically.”
You’ve been taught to think topically, but not systematically, or in this case, holistically.
What’s the difference?
Topical thinking perceives the events in your life as isolated moments in time with no relation to the whole. We falsely apply this thinking when attempting to answer the question, “What do I desire?” and our answer usually falls short. We know we desire more, yet we fail to realize that we are using a mental model of the world that is extremely limiting.
Employing holistic thinking is about seeing how the parts of your life relate to the whole. It’s about recognizing your joy for painting and your passion for consulting the elderly. It’s about seeing how your six-month stint abroad informs how you see the world. When you understand how to appreciate ALL of you, you will no longer attempt to stuff, shrivel up, or mute the full range of your magnitude. Read that last sentence again.
Read it one more time. (I’m being a bit forceful here, I know.)
This time take out a piece of paper and write it down, but personalize it. “I will no longer attempt to stuff, shrivel up, or mute the full range of my magnitude.”
While you’re at it, (tweet it).
So what will you do instead?
The same thing I tell all my clients to do. You will step into your authority, own your throne, and create a brand that represents the totality of who you are: a mom, wife, businesswoman, spiritual, God-centered, bold, unabashed.
You have to learn to expand your capacity if you want to create the results you desire. As a trained human developmentalist, I live to see you break through your glass ceilings.
