Know your limits?
Too often we delineate ourselves by our limits which create our reality and define our behaviours. To lead a life less ordinary I suggest that we believe that Limits like fear is often an illusion. Michael Jordan
One year after opening Red Doors my friends were advising me to 'just quit'. Yes, the road was rocky and the way forward unclear, yet I believe Hard work = No Limits
Bruce Lee said, 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, only plateaus. You must not stay there, you must go beyond them. Bruce Lee
Today we received our first shipment of 33 shiny new gongs from the Paiste factory in Germany. After finishing the inventory we will crack open the champagne and celebrate yet another milestone for the studio.
Marilyn Monroe said , A wise girl knows her limits, a smart girl knows she has none.
What's next? I teach my students that as players and catalysts we are only limited by our imagination and the number of hours in a day. We generate new ideas for introducing gongs to the broader community because we believe gongs are not purely the enclave of yogis or the new age community but tools for all of mankind. I cannot articulate or envision the future for Red Doors much to the dismay of my business mentors, but I do know that the path will unfold as I keep moving forward. Fueled with the believe that The limits of the possible can only be defined by going beyond them into the impossible. Arthur C. Clarke
I leave you this week challenging you to stretch the boundaries, be comfortable with not knowing, relinquish control of outcomes and to be limitless.
Only as high as I reach can I grow
only as far as I seek can I go
Only as deep as I look can I see
only as much as I dream can I be.
