Understanding emotional limits

We are all familiar with the phrase, “Know your limits.”

Physical limits are much easier to define. No matter how hard I try, I can’t grip a basketball. That is a physical limit.

More importantly to understand is our emotional limits.

How long can you hold onto tension? The kind of tension of stepping forward into the unknown not knowing the work you do will succeed.

Some limits are defined and real, while others are fake. False limits subvert us from doing our best work. Every day.
