No limits

"The limit of your present understanding is not the limit of your possibilities."

~ Guy Finley

Stop and think for a moment about the quote above. What are you hesitant to start because you think to yourself, "I don't know enough," or "That's not my area of expertise"?

The question I think you should ask yourself instead is: "Is this important enough for me to take the time and effort to learn it?" If the answer is "yes," then get started!

When we were kids we were told we could do anything we wanted to do. We were inspired by a world of possibilities. Then we learned about risk and failure - and were encouraged to avoid them. But the truth is, you'll never achieve those exciting possibilities without risking failure along the way. 

It is easy to buy into the excuse that our present knowledge isn't good enough for us to move forward. But that's just what it is – an excuse. That world of possibilities we heard about as a kid is still out there - if we're brave enough to go after it.
