Motivation Monday: Faith Removes Limitations on This First Monday in October

Motivation Monday:

First Monday in October

 

 

It’s the first Motivation Monday of October on my blog today!

If you recall last Monday’s post, this cross-stitch piece (made by my mom-in-law) in the photo above contains different sayings that all essentially mean, “You can do it!” as the first line states. I thought each of the four sayings might serve as good topics for Motivation Monday posts:

*Last week (9-25): Whatever the mind of man can conceive and believe, it can achieve.

*This week (10-2): Faith removes limitations.

*Next week (10-9): Keep on keeping on.

*Two weeks (10-16): Every failure brings with it the seed of an equivalent success.

 

 

So for today, let’s explore this one:

Faith removes limitations.

 

So what exactly IS faith? Well, that’s partially answered in the quote above: often, it is believing or having confidence in something, or someone, we cannot see.

 

Think of simple things like sitting down in your chair. How often do you stop in “mid sit” to contemplate if that chair will hold your weight without breaking and sending you in a heap to the floor? I think we all take it for granted without even thinking about it, that whatever we sit on will hold us. Without even knowing it, we have faith that our chairs will hold us when we sit on them, and that faith removes the limitation of having to stand up all the time out of fear the chairs will break!

 

The same goes for approaching an automatic door. Do you ever wonder if the door will in fact open when you step in front of it? Have you ever had an automatic door NOT open, due to some malfunction, and end up walking into it? (Yes, it HAS happened to me!) In most cases, though, we have faith the automatic door WILL open and that removes the limitation of being stuck outside (or inside), or the need to manually open the door.

 

 

Overall, I think faith in ourselves, in our abilities, in other people, and/or in God or any higher power we recognize, can effectively remove limitations in our lives.

 

Really, faith in ourselves AND our abilities, go hand in hand. If we struggle with self-confidence, that in itself is a limitation. However, if you are someone with a strong sense of self-confidence, you may rarely encounter limitations because you believe whatever you endeavor to do will happen.

 

 

Sometimes we need to have faith in other people. Again, this also probably happens more frequently than we realize without even having a second thought. In most cases, we likely trust our loved ones, our friends, and perhaps our colleagues, medical professionals, and others, to be true to their word and to respect us. This removes the limitation of trying to do manage everything on our own or fearing intentional harm or negativity. I think we’re more likely to consciously recognize those people we do NOT trust, than the majority of people we DO trust.

 

 

Many people also have faith in God or another power higher than themselves. This is my personal lifestyle, but I know not everyone who reads my blog believes as I do. Yet this choice fits the quote earlier about believing in something or someone we cannot see–the spiritual world that’s invisible to our physical eyes. Trusting in someone or something beyond ourselves removes limitations of only trusting in our human capacity.

 

 

 

So What About YOU?

 

Do you believe this quote is accurate?

 

Have you discovered having faith (in yourself, in your abilities, in others, and/or in God or a higher power) does remove limitations in your life?

 

 

**Next Monday: “Keep on keeping on.”

  1. Yes, for sure. I am Catholic.I have been going to Church since my mom could carry me in and now I walk in on my own because of my faith. When you believe and have faith in God like I do, you learn to let go of things. If for example, I go to a job interview and DON’T get the job, I am still thankful. Because my faith teaches me to believe God has better Plans for me.

  2. I agree that the more you trust your intuition the stronger it gets. Great quote I hadn’t heard that one before.

  3. I definitely agree that with the right mindset and taking appropriate steps to achieve our goals are two of the most important factors for us to succeed in everything that we do,

  4. Can you believe it’s the first Monday of October already! Crazy!!! Thanks for sharing, it’s so important to keep faith in ourselves and other, sometimes we tend to forget what were capable of doing and lose faith overall.

  5. I do have a strong faith in God and believe that He is working in my life, even in the not so good situations. This is especially freeing in a way because it allows me to step back from difficult situations and take a “wait and see” mentality. Going with the flow in the food and bad, trusting that it will all work out somehow.

  6. You rightly point out that faith in ourselves AND our abilities, go hand in hand. Neither is dispensable. True success needs both in considerable measure!

  7. Faith is really important, firstly in yourself to break those inner barriers and move to conquer what we need. On this road we need to have faith in God for all the learnings and yes some people we meet as well.

  8. Such a motivational post. Faith is really important. Otherwise, We can not achieve our dream and goals in life.

  9. Such an inspiring and motivating post, I can say that I’m religious in terms of a different perspective but it always depends on the person about the faith he/she has. I really love the message “Faith Removes Limitations”
