It Is In Losing Where You Succeed

“If you always put limits on everything you do, physical or anything else. It will spread into your work and into your life. There are no limits. There are only plateaus, and you must not stay there, you must go beyond them.” — Bruce Lee

How I Ventured To The Edge Of My Limits

“The only way of discovering the limits of the possible is to venture a little way past them into the impossible.” — Arthur C. Clarke

For example, I recall when I first spoke on stage many years ago in front of a live audience. The fear and anxiety paralysed me and I often forgot what I rehearsed.

The Purpose Is To Get Comfortable Being Uncomfortable

“You only know yourself when you go beyond your limits.” — Paulo Coelho

As I am writing this, an update on my LinkedIn message feed appeared from author Greg McKeown who wrote Essentialism: The Disciplined Pursuit of Less.
