What's Holding You Back?

No pessimist ever discovered the secrets of the stars or sailed to an uncharted land, or opened a new heaven to the human spirit.
- Helen Keller
What are the limitations that you automatically put on yourself?  Do you find yourself making excuses or rationalizing the delay for something good you can accomplish right now?  Pessimism is more than just negative thinking.  It's the fuel for hesitation and the cloudiness that keeps us from looking ahead to our dreams.

A more rousing image is in this G+ post from University of Kentucky:  "This is a new era, a revolution. It means no excuses, no apologies, no restraints."

Sunnybrook Bridge - By Ian Sane
Have a Bright and Wonderful Morning!

Now that you're up this morning, think of a simple achievement that really speaks out to you today.  Imagine yourself doing it and completing it... while passing by the objections that you mind may already be obstructing your progress.  Then, stop thinking... and just do it!
